Some of my HALO jump shots appear in the trailer. Sometimes when you do previs on a project, you have a feeling the movie will end up being very good. This was definitely one of those projects.
Divergent is an upcoming young adult novel adaptation about a post-apocalyptic alternate universe set in Chicago (wow, that's a mouthful). I worked as a previs artist on it earlier this year while at The Third Floor. Some of the parts I helped on were included in the teaser and trailer, including the train jumping, hole jumping, and the sequence with the "group punch" shot. It is set to come out 3/21/14.
It's awards season, and two of the projects I've worked on at The Third Floor have been nominated and even won some awards. Here is a summary so far:
-Academy Awards (Nomination): "Best Visual Effects" The Avengers (ILM)
-VES Awards: "Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project" Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem (Awarded to Illumination Entertainment)
-Annie Awards: "Best Animated Special Production" Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem (Awarded to Illumination Entertainment)
-Annie Awards: "Best Visual Effects in a Live Action Production" The Avengers (Awarded to ILM)
Congratulations to the teams who saw our previs through to a successful end and received these awards.
The new trailer for Marvel's The Avengers went live today, and a few more shots of mine are featured in it. The shots I did previs for are:
1:54 Hulk catching a falling Iron Man and scraping against a building
2:15 Non-CG shot of Thor and Cap looking up
2:19 Monster chasing Iron Man around corner of building
This one is the best trailer yet, in my opinion, and I couldn't be more excited to see this one when it comes out on May 4. For those interested, there is also a gallery of hi-res stills from the trailer here.
_Jack the Giant Killer was the very first movie I worked on with the Third Floor when I moved to L.A. last year, so it has a special place in my heart. The trailer came out great and I'm greatly anticipating the movie when it comes out in IMAX next June. Look for my shots at 0:45 and 1:08:
