Something to show, finally

Fear 3 is due out this may, finally i got something to show,

around the 0:22 mark where the tower is crumbling down, the full shot is longer than that, and 1:50 mark where you see those scavengers disintegrating, also the fire in the background.

oh and if the video is blocked where you are, you can always see it on IGN here:  http://www.ign.com/videos/2011/02/25/fear-3-behind-the-scenes-tone-video 0:17 and 1:47 respectively.

F3ar

finally, got a release date: March 22, 2011, can’t wait till the game comes out, why? As you might have read before, I worked on the cinematics for the game.  It’s gonna be pretty awesome, can’t wait to be able to show it off.

Source Code

Montreal-based visual effects studio Modus FX served as the lead facility for Duncan Jones’ upcoming action thriller Source Code, scheduled for release on April 1. Source Code tells the story of a U.S. soldier who wakes up in the body of another man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train – forced to relive the final 8 minutes of the incident over and over again until he finds the perpetrator. This December Modus FX delivered over 150 shots for the film, including complex digital crowd shots, CG trains, environments and dramatic pyrotechnics.

Houdini

been using houdini quite a bit at work, still not very good at it though, does take a while to learn it, but it seems like a very powerful too, although missing some of the nice pre-made tools in 3ds max or maya, houdini makes it up by letting you create your own tools easily inside the software itself. and it seems like all the studios are jumping on the bandwagon that is houdini, everyone is looking for houdini fx TDs. Might be a good software to invest some time into and learn.

and you can learn a lot from here: http://vimeo.com/user2030228

houdini

have fun houdini-ing!

Tron

check this out:

got a few friends from VFS who worked on the film too. the effects looks awesome, although the movie, i felt, was not as good as the original. not only that, the music is just FANTASTIC, like, it just works perfectly! Can’t wait till the blu-ray comes out for this movie!

Another blog

i made another blog! yay!! i know, i can barely maintain this one with regular updates, but hopefully these 2 blogs will give me more motivation to keep both of them updated.

anyway so this new blog is gonna be about things not related to vfx. things like games and other things that are my hobbies but aren’t related to vfx (but i might post the same post at both places if i deemed fit)

here it is, check it out, i’ll be updating that one quite regularly (i hope anyway): http://zomgethim.wordpress.com/

 

Edit: made the link clickable, i hate it when i have to paste the link into the browser (unless you are super security conscious), so i’m not gonna make you do that.
