FX artist and other stuff

update!

Works is up at Rainmaker, Escape from planet earth is very close to done. I have to say though, it looks great, not only because I worked on it but it really just looks great, can’t wait to see it in the theaters.

However that’s not what i wanted to talk about, what i wanted to talk about is how amazing the team we had at Rainmaker was/is, i really miss those guys, but of course we will get together to have a beer or 2, or 3. Thank you guys for the great time, hard work, overtime and dinners.

Moving on, however, is that the new place i’m at, Goldtooth Creative, is awesome! We are working on some very very exciting projects, game cinematics, none of which i can say unfortunately. Stay tuned though, i will post it soon as i can!

 

Signing off for now, i hope to have more stuff to share soon!

Photo and wallpaper

Took some pictures today, and turned some into 3840 by 1080 wallpapers. I’ve had some trouble finding wallpapers that are 3840 by 1080 for my dual HD monitors. So i decided to upload them so people can download them if they wish, i’ll also have the 1920 by 1080 versions, should be enough for most monitors.

EVE online

Out of no where a heavily armed battlecruiser drops out of warp right in the middle of a large group of pirates. Drones swarm out from the battlecruiser as the captain orders a lock on the nearest frigate, he knows the frigates may not kill a battlecruiser, but if they get close enough they can slow the ship down enough to double the damage dealt on the ship.  This all happened before the pirates even had any time to react.

Missiles from the battlecruiser races towards the frigate that is 40km away through the vaccum of space, silent but deadly, it takes the missiles about 8 seconds from launch to impact, and the frigate pilot can do nothing but watch as he’s doom aproches at 4.8km/s.  The drones are being launched towards another frigate, but the pilot was way too occupied with the battlecruiser to notice the drones, a fatle mistake that costed he’s ship and he’s life.

The rest of the pirate gang only now have targeted the battlecruiser and opened fire. But it seems the shield is way too tough for any of the pirates to even make a dent. However the pirates are not a bunch that gives up easily, calling more backup while they move into a more favourable position. Little do they know, there is no where they can go to avoid the missile from that heavily armed battlecruiser.

One by one the pirates explode as the missiles tears through the ship’s hull like a can opener. The captain isn’t even breaking a sweat, he has done this so many times he can probably do it in he’s sleep. But it doesn’t matter how many pirates he kill, there always seem to be more, but hey, more pirates he kill, more money he gets. That might not sound very noble, but the man has to make a living, and also pay for all the missiles.


Few movies to watch and watch out for

Since I am in the movie business I thought i’d talk about movies and stuff that you might wanna watch or watch out for.

To Watch

slumdog-millionaire-poster-full

Slumdog Millionaire (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1010048/): this movie was recomended to me by a friend of mine, she says is one of the favorate movies of hers. I on the other hand initially dismissed it as some random movie about some random subject, and well i’m not much of a fan of indian movies, you know how the steriotype goes, cheesy indian films with horrible echoy music and lots of dancing invovled. This movie on the other hand is not one of those. Directed by Danny Boyle, who is a really good director btw (I watched Sunshine after watching Slumdog Millionaire). Anyway you got enough movie review and shit like that out there to read, and this is not another movie review, i’m just saying this is a good movie, great story, makes you think, and go watch it and enjoy the music in the movie too.

benjamin-button-1113

The Curious case of Benjamin Button (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421715/): Right, to be honest i don’t like Brad Pitt, not because of he’s last name, but rather i just don’t seem to have a good impression of him after watching “Burn after reading” in which he was a moron. But anyway i wanted to see this movie because of the CG head that they had put in for the first 52 minutes of the movie to age Brad.  I was kinda half expecting the CG to fell short somehow because well i know how much of a pain it is to create CG human,  especially CG human head with complex actions in close-ups. My worries were proven wrong, the CG is great, I mean there are signs of the head being CG in some of the scenes, and there are scenes in which you just cannot tell the head is CG, and you probably won’t be able to know the head is CG if no one had told you. Not only that, the movie is great too, great story, long movie too, watch it.

(I’mma add more later)

To Watch Out For

Star Trek (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796366/): ‘nough said.

Pixar’s Up: well i mean pixar always have good stuff right?

X-men origins: wolverine (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458525/): i’m a fan of the x-men trilogy, so here’s another one to watch out for.

that’s all for now, really tired, gotta hit the sack.
