This year, the short list for movies that could win the Oscar for "Best Visual Effects" was expanded to include twenty films. They are:
At the end of last year, I worked on several commercials at Proof, inc. Two of these commercials, one for TurboTax and one for Pepsi, aired on television yesterday during the Super Bowl. A new trailer for the upcoming Furious 7 feature film aired as well, which contained shots I did previs and techvis for back in 2013.
TurboTax: "Boston Tea Party"
I did previs for the first few shots of the Sons of Liberty storming the HMS Surprise (one of the replica ships in the collection of the Maritime Museum of San Diego), and modeled previs characters for the other sequences. Read more on this here.
Pepsi: "Halftime Touches Down"
Continuing with their recurring U.F.O. theme that they've done for decades, Pepsi's halftime commercial featured previs by our Proof, inc. team. The segment I previsualized involved teenagers playing music in their garage with a nearby dog. Read more on this here.
Furious 7 Movie Trailer
Coming to theaters April 3, Furious 7 has a new movie trailer to get people excited about the upcoming film. I helped previs and techvis the sequence of a Lykan Hypersport crashing through the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, and did previs for the cargo drop skydiving sequence. Read more on this here.
After an emotional roller-coaster of filmmaking, the trailer for the new Fast & Furious movie is here. Entitled 'Furious 7,' the movie will have daring stunts and more of the high-stakes action fans of the franchise expect. Working on it was a fun challenge, and I'm happy with how our previs looks to have transitioned to the final photography.
Here is the official trailer. It starts off with our cargo drop sequence and transitions into the bus rescue. These were the first sequences I worked on when I started on the project last year. I hope the fans enjoy it.

WHAT IS VISUALIZATION?
Visualization is a process that creates an early version of a project quickly and relatively inexpensively, usually through computer animation. It is common in the entertainment and technology fields, on projects like films, television shows, commercials, VR experiences, and theme park rides.
"Previs" artists create a film's digital blueprint early in preproduction by 3D-animating sequences in the computer before shooting begins, normally around the time of casting. Frequent iterations allow for story ideas to be explored, and alternate The detail provided by this blueprint is crucial for the film crew to determine how to best film the story.
