Urban Decay Matte Painting

Been working on a matte painting.  simple concept and a good self learning/teaching experience.
Shot on the RED Epic, using Maya, Photoshop and After Effects for now.  Will be heading into Vue after the matte is complete.

here are a couple screen grabs of the process.

We shot pretty much in the same spot where Mayas camera is.

Shader network (so far) for just the Canada Life building.

Music video for "Better Idea" by Amy Nelson

well it's finally released! Again, I can't say it enough as to how much fun it was to work with Amy and the band.  She was easy to work with and it was a great experience.  I look forward to working with her and possibly others in the future.  To be able to produce, direct and edit the final product was a huge privilege.

Here it is!  Buy the song on iTunes! Support Sask. artists!

Space Milkshake Update

Over the last month and some we (Red Hat Studios) have been working away at modelling and texturing 3 main spaceships for the movie Space Milkshake.  I think I came close to 100 save versions and this is by far one of the biggest modelling projects I have ever participated in.

And they have been approved! If the guys upstairs love them, then I do too.  We are still tweaking them a tiny bit where we see fit but nothing major.

Such an amazing feeling to have your designs come to life. Can't wait until we comp them in!

Take a peak (and link to Red Hat).
