This Summer, Image Factory DC (where I am a full-time Designer / Animator) had the opportunity to do a spot for the Social Security Administration. I did a great deal of keying, rotoscoping and 3D compositing on this project (among other things!). Though the deadline was tight, it was still a lot of fun to work on.
In 2012, I had the privilege of working with Baltimore-based artist and educator Tim Nohe on his contribution to Nature in the Dark. I was responsible for the compositing.
“At the Wall of the Anthropocene” was made from stills collected from motion sensing cameras capturing bush creatures like wallabies, mice, wombats and birds repopulating areas savaged by fires.
The piece was originally screened in Federation Square in Melbourne, and is now traveling to The Gertrude Street Projection Festival, Melbourne (18-27 July 2014), and the Visual Arts Centre, Bendigo (14 August – 5 October 2014).
I’m very happy to share a play through video I recently shot of my good friend — Nick Budosh — for his solo metal project of the same name – BUDOSH (click for bandcamp profile).
Shot RAW using Magic Lantern on my 5D MkIII, I converted the footage to LOG ProRes and then ran it through a VisionColor OSIRIS LUT before doing additional color grading tweaks and other work in After Effects. I will likely put together a breakdown video, since most of the post-work I did isn’t immediately noticeable (and it was substantial!).
If you like the track, be sure to pick up the whole demo. I’m sure Mr. Budosh will appreciate it.
New reel coming very soon! This one is from way back in the day, while I was still working as a Graduate Assistant at commonvision.
I’m in the preliminary stages of rebuilding my personal website — home to my art and motion graphics portfolio, MFA blog and more. Feel free to contact me via email in the mean time.
