What a weekend!

It has been a pretty eventful weekend around here. First things first, the Video Copilot T-Shirts are in. FINALLY!

We had a few problems adjusting artwork but the wait is over. I’m literally wearing one right now. We’re going to take some pictures and share them on the blog this week. We ordered a couple hundred of them so as far as selling them, we are still figuring that out. We may do a limited run for a couple of days… our shipping system isn’t quite designed for sending clothes so we need to strategize.

Pro Scores
Our new music production product is wrapped and we are just getting the promotional material ready like the website and promo video. Depending on the replication turn-around, we should have it out the second week of December or so. This product has really turned into a gem, I can’t wait to show you what’s inside.

There is a bunch of other stuff going on around here too so I’d better get back to work. More news to follow.

Cloud City
Continuing the Element 3D fun! This started as a desert scene and soon turned into a cloud city! Typical. Part of the fun of these render projects is just creating random stuff and designing without a specific goal. It’s actually been really challenging and exciting to try various techniques. In this scene, I used an aerial […]
My 10 Cloverfield Lane Contribution
Earlier this year I had the chance to work on 10 Cloverfield lane, on this horrifying matte painting and composite. Many image-searches for road kill have scarred my mind!
