Forza 6: Legacy. A52. September 2015.

This project was a great opportunity to blend 2 of my favorite things, CG and racing. It was done at A52 over the course of just over 4 months. Directed by Michael Spiccia. We shot the 2017 Ford GT on a gimbal, and tracked it into our cg worlds for some shots, while some were full cg. I supervised the shoot, led the CG team of 20+ artists, and did some car animation and fx work on this.

GE: Time Upon a Once. A52. May 2015.

GE: Time Upon a Once was a fun project where we got to be creative with our set extensions and fx. The force perspective was a unique challenge that had some interesting looking maya scenes at any other camera angle. I supervised the cg team and animated the flying trash in the lab using dynamics.

Taco Bell: Routine Republic. A52. April 2015.

Taco Bell: Routine Republic was more of a short film than a commercial directed by Michael Spiccia. We had to create a guard tower and slide, a statue, and a great wall. We also made a lot of cold weather communist style clothing to use in Massive for the crowd simulation. About 25 shots of cg was done in just over a week. I supervised the team of about 15 cg artists, and did crowd simulation in 1 shot.

Fox Sports: Settle the Score. A52. March 2015.

Settle the Score was a promotional campaign for the US Women's World Cup Team for Fox Sports. 2 different stadiums were created and filled with soccer fans. I was responsible for the Massive crowd simulations for each of the stadiums. In the end, they eventually won the World Cup.

Powerade: Rose from Concrete. A52. February 2015.

Tupac Shakur's poem, "The Rose that Grew from the Concrete" is featured in this Powerade commercial, with Derrick Rose. It was shot on a day where the basketball court was not installed, so we created it. We also tracked in Powerade bottles through out the spot. I was the CG Lead on this project.

Nissan: #withDad. A52. February 2015.

Being a race car driver, when I first saw this edit, I got really excited to work on this project, which was directed by Lance Accord, and aired during the 2015 Super Bowl. We had to make Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas look more like La Sarthe, where the 24 Hour of Le Mans takes place. This was also the first time that Nissan showed their new race car to the public. I did 3d generalist work, and Massive crowd simulations.

Kate and Matt. Ace Hotel. December 2014.

I teamed up with Lavender and Clove to shoot a video / time lapse wedding project at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. I started the day around 4 am, and shot with 2 cameras and motion control until 10 pm. I used LRTimelapse to process the footage and then Resolve to color.
