The video for my latest advertising project is now on YouTube. I was the Previs Supervisor for our team of six at MPC/Technicolor. It was my second time working on a Shawn Levy project. My full writeup for the project can be found here. Happy Holidays!
As of October 23, the horror-comedy creature feature 'Love and Monsters' is now available to stream at home! You can read my project page for it here. I hope you get the chance to enjoy the film.
I was only on working on the project less than a week, I would still like to congratulate those who helped it cross the finish line. It was fun to work on another film based on the comics I read as a kid, although I never would have dreamed I would animate those symbiote suits years later. Always leave room for life to surprise you! More at my project page for the film here.
Number eight in the Fast and Furious franchise hits American movie theaters this weekend. I went to the Hollywood screening last night, and highly enjoyed the follow-up to the massively successful Furious 7. You can read about my time on the project as Lead Previs Artist on the Fate of the Furious project page. I hope those visiting this page check it out on a big, loud theater screen, as it was intended.
Last night the long-awated trailer was released for The Fate of the Furious, a project for which I was the lead previsualization artist at Proof, inc. Reception to it has been amazing, with many positive reaction videos, as well as over twenty-four million Facebook views alone for the trailer video. At this point, I think it's clear that people have accepted that "yes, they are making another one" and that they occupy their own space in the market for people wanting over-the-top action movies that know when to blow people's minds and when to poke fun at themselves. You can learn more about my involvement on the Fate of the Furious project page.
Also released last night was the "Toycracker" mini-musical my team prevised for Target's holiday campaign. Our work was needed mainly for shots incorporating the various digital characters. For more details on how we did this, visit the Target project page.
Recently I supervised a series of holiday commercials for Target, in addition to a short musical (called "The Toycracker") that will air during the ABC broadcast of Frozen on December 11th. The team that I helped assemble did a great job handling four commercials and the seven minute short within a very swifly-moving six weeks. Hats off to them for their great work. You can find more info about this on my project page for Target.
The video for the new Clash of Clans commercial is now online, and is up to 15 million views in less than a week. For a small writeup on the project, click here.
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.
Although I have not seen it yet, I have high hopes that our previs came out well in the final picture. Congratulations to all the people who helped make the movie happen.
Like the earlier two movies in the series, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is a light comedy with lots of animated creatures and clever CGI, so it's a great family movie. It releases December 19, 2014. For those curious about what trailer shots I worked on, they include the animals running amuck at the planetarium dinner (0:42), the Triceratops crashing into the case (1:29), the bronze lions in Trafalgar Square (1:50), and the Pompeii lava sequence (2:07). This trailer debuts in theaters today, before Guardians of the Galaxy.
