Still Here...

I've been offline for a while in an intense production period working on my film. Its going to be a long way to go but am revolving on some interesting ideas. I've also been making a 3D short film on the side so when its done I'll post everything on Vimeo. Don't ask me how but I also managed to write a novel called "The Gothic Memorium' which is coming out very soon. There is a new website coming early next year but more on that later on.

Boom Boom! Phil Phil!

My first show in Melbourne for a while, 'Boom Boom' co-ocurated by a good friend of mine Phil Edwards. See the invite below. My old RMIT printmaking teacher Greg Moncrief, perhaps one of the most talented and funniest artists I've ever known, is showing so its pretty special seeing them all again.

100 new Optical Flares

I've made a total of 100 (series 1) new free lens flares for use in the Video Copilot Optical Flares program which are incrementally being uploaded onto their site over the next week. The next 100 (series 2) will be crafted especially for use in the new VFX stock videos I'm making for Tammy's business which you'll see a lot of in a few months. Am having so much fun with this I might just make 1000 and call myself Mr Michael Bay!

The Big Three

Here are the first examples of the study series for Uber memoria XX in 2D, anaglyphic 3D and Stereo 3D. These pick up from the Uber Memoria Proto series back in 2007 with a new body of work that I had originally sketched out and planned but never got around to filming. These were shot on the Fugi W3 and scaled to 2.35 in post. I'm setting up a gallery on Youtube to release all works together for free in all 3 formats. Now this forces me to go out and buy a pair of red/cyan shades!

VFX Background Plates

I'm making background plates for a VFX 3D stereo project (the projected screens are 4:3). This shot is comprised of a foreground scene, sky replacement, Photoshoped trees, added DOF masks and some colour grading. I shot the time lapsed clouds on a 550D over my back fence. Have learnt a lot about the VFX process in a stereo space but the hard thing is woking in 8 channels (360 degree view). More images to come, its just taking a long time to complete...
