Features are Out and Series are In

Hey Everyone,

It's been two crazy weeks but I'm back. I've been spending almost 14-16 hours a day at the office trying to get the 'Features' out and today I get my wish. We wrap production 'Officially' and now we're back to the old drill of the TV Series. I must admit it was one hell of a ride, tough at most times but I pulled through when needed.

Amidst all of the chaos, I became Project Manager at the studio and I now supervise a small team of three and I must admit, we have a well balanced team. I feel confident and look forward to future projects.

After wrapping up the Mission Impossible 60 Seconds Competition provided by Virgin Radio Vancouver, I got an email concerning another project in the works ... Another VFX Supervisor gig which I'm never immune to working on Set. Let's see where it take me and I'll keep you guys posted.

I decided to get a bit serious about Camera Projections and I've provided a Wikipedia link for those interested in a bit more detail. I'm currently working on a 5 second shot of a desert scene using Vue, Photoshop, Maya and Nuke to complete the shot. I'm consulting tutorials and exploring the true depths of the software as I'm trying to push the capability of what is considered 'average' for each. I'm looking at another week deadline if all goes well but more so a learning process than anything else.

My fav TV show is back and better than EVER ... Californication is 'Rockin out ...' and it's gonna be yet another enjoyable Season as it continues with Season 4.

Also some Tron loving web stuff: Talking Tron with Digital Domain by Motiongrapher.

Anyways guys, I'm recovering from my 2 week hiatus and with that I bid you farewell ... G'nite World !!!
