Dressed in (Keyshot)Black

Playing with the JAEGERTECH FRS-XX in Keyshot. Only had a few hours to play with it so far, but thought I'd share some early images. Still messing with it.

New Superbowl trailers of 2 of the projects I've been working on.

First there's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, of which I did some VFX art direction and concept art for...


and then there's Transformers 4: Age of Extinction which I am currently VFX Art Director on. This is my 4th Transformers film and 6th or 7th Michael Bay film since being VFX Art Director on Pearl Harbor. He keeps us busy!

Some of my work on Pacific Rim featured in WIRED.com!





Several of the behind the scenes videos have been surfacing online this week. There's this one from WIRED that focuses on the building of the Jaegers.
      And there's a second one that features the all digital Hong Kong we had to build in order to accomplish the big city fight in the film.

     Although the film was massively overlooked (snubbed if you will) by the Academy, it's up for the BAFTA's for best Visual Effects and several nominations by the Visual Effects Society (VES) including my self for the category of best models in a motion picture. This is my third nomination by the VES and if we win would be my second award.
     I would like to congratulate fellow ILMer's Tim Alexander for his nomination for The Lone Ranger VFX and Roger Guyett and Pat Tubach for Star Trek: Into Darkness VFX. Good luck, it's a tough year for this category!

The Gnomon Gallery at the  Gnomon School in LA is hosting a mix of art and images from this summer's biggest blockbuster film Pacific Rim. Starting on Dec 7th the free gallery will be open to the public to see lots of behind the scenes artwork and images that helped shape the epic film. Including a few of mine which are posted as the main images on the splash page for the site :) As well as many others listed on the site and hopefully a few more that art not listed. I hope you can make it over there and see the art big!... like the movie :)

Pacific Rim ILM photo :)

Here's a shot of Guillermo del Toro, myself and VFX supervisor John Knoll at my desk at ILM while working on Pacific Rim (which comes out on DVD Oct 15). One of GDT's many visits to ILM during production of the film. He really enjoyed coming up and seeing the artists at work and also checking out all the toys that cover our desks :). I had a blast on that show and I hope it all shows in the film and translates to the small screen, although I recommend you watch it on the biggest TV you can with the biggest sound system for full impact! See more of the art in the book Man, Machines and Monsters.
     Thanks to ILM for posting this photo on their Industrial Light and Magic facebook page.

The JAEGERTECH CRS-XX??

So I decided to do a test to see what the FRS-XX body would look like as a car. So I simply dropped it onto a Le Mans cars chassis without much change at all. Seems to work, just need to do some integration and custom wheels and wings etc...
  More to come!
