Good news everyone! Things have been a little quiet around here because I was given an amazing opportunity to work with J.J. Abrams and Co. on the main title for an a new NBC show called UnderCovers. In collaboration with Stephen Reedy, who created the concept and Jennifer Horvath as editor, I used 3Ds Max to create the CG elements and composited everything in After Effects for the main title. In fact, I even used AE CS5 for the first time from start to finish.
Unfortunately, I can’t post the intro yet but please check it out when it airs Sept 22, at 8pm on NBC. But, hopefully I can talk about it more after it airs, we’ll see.
It was a lot of fun, plenty of late nights and hard work. I even had a chance to work on several VFX shots for the pilot with my friend Brandon Fayette. I sometimes try to take a minute to appreciate how cool it is to have an opportunity to work on the things you love . You never know, one day you could be making crummy tutorials for a living.. oh wait!
