I spent a good portion of this year working on the previs team for the latest Star Trek film for Paramount Pictures, both on and off the studio lot. This trailer will also screen before Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so I'm looking forward to seeing those space shots on the big screen.
This year, the short list for movies that could win the Oscar for "Best Visual Effects" was expanded to include twenty films. They are:
Earlier this year I was the Previs Supervisor for five commercials by Honda for their "The Power of Dreams" campaign. Four of them are posted below. For the fifth commercial video and more information on how they were accomplished, visit the Honda page on this site.

Pick yours up and enjoy the parachuting off-roaders, sliding buses, smashing cars, and exploding helicopters.
The shots I presived in X-Men: Days of Future Past can finally now be seen in an alternate cut of the movie, now out on Blu-Ray.
"Embracing the Future," the Julius Baer commercial that Proof, inc. prevised has now been posted on the bank's website. The shots I worked on were all of the water sequence, the wide shot of the man rising out of the water, and some of the skydiving shots. Congrats to the team and filmmakers on the final video. For more information on my site, please click here. There is also a nice "making of video" on the Julius Baer website.
The credit commercial I helped previs at Proof, inc. now has a project page on my website here . I worked mainly on the flaming cherries jubilee shot in the restaurant. You can view it below:
With China and Russia yet to release, Furious 7 has opened to $384 million dollars worldwide on its first weekend, making it the third-highest international opening of all time. Thank you to all those involved in making it a success, including all the fans who kept it sold out all weekend! The movie was a massive undertaking and underwent many wild turns, and it is great to see it met with such a strong reception.
Here is a picture of only some of the team back in 2013, when many of us began transitioning off of it:
Not all of the people who worked on it were given screen credit (as is often the case with previs), but here is as complete a list of Proof previs/postvis artists that I know of:

It was my first project with Proof, inc. and I learned countless amounts from the kind and talented teammates who were on it. Congratulations to them all.
