Turbo Tax: History. Big Block. January 2017.

Big Block directors Josh + Vince start off the 2017 tax season with this funny spot for Turbo Tax. John Clayton takes a break from analyzing sports and makes his return to advertising, showing off his sports memorabilia. We did screen replacements on the phone and cyro chamber, and fluid simulations for the liquid nitrogen.

Nike: The Future is Fast. A52. September 2015.

Peyton Manning and Demarcus Ware play football with the future of the sport for Nike. Denver and Detroit stadiums were shot empty, lidar scanned, modeled, and were then filled with crowds in Massive for 33 shots. Plates of crowds were added for the foreground on some shots as well. I supervised the cg and did some crowd simulation in Massive.

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.
