Finished up Part 1 of the lecture i gave recently overseas, will try to finish up Part 2 at a later date. A collection of thoughts and experiences from working in the entertainment industry, basically the sort of talk i wish someone gave to me before i started working. I hope this is useful to you all and helps you on your journey.

Childhoods End

A few designs done for SyFy's 'Childhoods End' miniseries back in 2014, was a huge honor to get to get to be a part of the adaptation of one of my favorite Arthur C. Clartke books, check out the show if you haven't already, turned out pretty cool!

You can see the rest on my website:

Blogger still giving me huge issues when i upload, the colors/values are totally messed up, had to tweak this image a ridiculous amount to get something semi close to how it should look when blogger processed the image. Please go to my website or anywhere else to see the work properly, thanks!

Had the huge pleasure and honor to work with Luc Besson again on his recent film LUCY, helping him visualize a lot of the more cerebral portions of his script. Was fun to work with him early on to develop and visualize the future computers seen at the end and visualize some other really out there ideas. One of the first big projects to come out finally working as an independent directly with the client/director, was fun to go on set, see our names in the credits as ourselves and be able to post our work with no hassle...... amazing! :)

You can see more stuff i did for LUCY on my site.

Also noticing blogger really shifts and changes the colors of my images drastically, like everything looks really warm and just 'off'.....anyone else getting that issue? Please view on my site for more accurate colors.
