Kirby's Epic Yarn. Superfad. October 2010.

Kirby's Epic Yarn for Nintendo Wii was done at Superfad in Los Angeles. I returned back to a studio that I used to call home a few years ago, and joined a great team of other 3d Artists to visualize Kirby turning a city into his yarn world. I did regular 3d generalist duties, including the yarn explosions and covering a building in a cloth explosion.

WWE Smackdown. Shilo. September 2010.

This year at Laguna Seca, I shared a garage with Jose Gomez who had just got done directing the shoot for this series of commercials. After hearing his enthusiasm for it, I went down to Shilo in San Diego a week later to work on the post for it.
I was VFX Supervisor on two out of the five 15 second pieces,"Kofi Kingston" and "The Big Show". I also did a good amount of the animation and FX on those 2 spots. Later on, a directors cut was edited to show the highlights of each spot.

ESPN College Football. Troika Deisgn Group. August 2010.

I went to Troika Design Group in Hollywood for most of the summer this year, to join the team to make the broadcast package for ESPN's college football, college gameday, and everything else involved with college football. Lot's of late nights, empty boxes of pizza, and several modifications to the air conditioner later, close to 100 deliverables were made for this season's college football.

Travelers. Watering Hole. Moving Picture Comany. June 2010.

I worked on this Travelers Insurance campaign with MPC-LA. I came in during the last week and a half of the job to help on some fluids and fx elements. The shots I worked on were the elephant shots, the close up, and the wider group shot. The fluids were done with a combination of Maya and Realflow.

Tribute to Lemans. CA Speedway. June 2010.

I teamed up with John Gordon, Vali Predescu, and Bill Fox for this year's POC Tribute to Leman's Endurance race. We all ran GT3 and GT4 classes on Yokohama eco-friendly slicks. The top 3 teams all finished within a lap from each other.

AT&T Blanket. Moving Picture Company. April 2010

We did this commercial at MPC-LA to show how much coverage AT&T has. Worked for 3 weeks of post on this with Dan Marsh, Ross Denner, and Matt Wheeler making up the 3d team. I did cloth simulations on the rear view of the Hollywood sign, top view of St. Louis Arch, and Las Vegas.
