Orion Engine Screen Shots
HI-RES SCREEN SHOTS: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

RESPONSIBILITIES
Created animated logo based on product specifications. I was responsible for creating a visual way to explain the technical side of software that was in development. The animation length is 3 minutes and 30 seconds, or 6300 frames, and was developed using a script and timed voiceover. This animation included 3D animation, altered JumpBacks, motion graphics, and various compositing effects. I basically built everything in this project.

NOTES
This video project was a corporate tool that the management team gives to their new sales people in order to explain the inner workings of the software systems they will be marketing.

PRODUCTION COMPANY:
20th Century Fox
FX HOUSE:
O Digital - O Entertainment


HI-RES SCREEN SHOTS: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

RESPONSIBILITIES
Helped the visual effects production team with finishing some of the final fx shots of the film. I textured and lit a few of the space ship models for specific shots. Generated approximate camera angels for 3D renderings. Composited those 3D renderings with blue-screen live action footage at film resolution. Created some 2D effects for hero-villian combat sequence.

Shot 1: Matched 3D camera angle with approximate angle of source sky footage. Composited the two elements together.
Shot 2: The most time consuming. Adjusted quality of sky/blue screen to enable better blue removal. Matched 3D ship angle with gound camera. Composited sky, ship, and actor together. Note the use of a matching lens flare around the actors head to marry the images together.
Shot 3: Though I didn't set up the original composite on this, my main resonsibility was to adjust the hull texture quality and color. Then I generated the final composite of this shot.
Shot 4: The almost-final shot of the movie, I composited the three layers of the background hill, the foreground hill, and the actor. Slight use of blurring helps provide an added hint of distance.
Shot 5: Generated "hit effect" using only After Effects techniques. Though this shot is very short, it needed to match the slow-motion effect of the original film.

The Rock Screenshots
HI-RES SCREEN SHOTS: 1 - 2 - 3

RESPONSIBILITIES
Created this animated piece of granite block destroying the "What's Your Excuse" sign and supporting slats. Initial frames of animation match live video footage of the sign on a side of a housel. This animation was cut into the video at the exact spot where no noticeable change is detected. Everything was hand-animated without any special plug-ins to provide physics interactions. The final product included overlayed text with tag line.

NOTES
This animation was part of a commercial being aired in the local theaters around Salt Lake City, UT. With a very low budget for animation, I tried to give them something special and "cool". As always, my vision for this far exceeded the budget so I wasn't able to do everything I had wanted. It turned out well and added a great deal of value to the impact of the commercial.
