Things have been busy lately as we have been working on some vfx for a short Video Copilot project that we will be covering extensively on the blog. It is an unusual project but it has been a great opportunity to work on because some unexpected challenges compared to our normal work.

I won’t ruin the surprise yet but we should be close to finishing in about a week.

This story came to me in a dream I think.... Sam fights off the temporary Lord of the Manor named Michael Scarn, giving his face a heck of a time-remapping, if you catch my drift. Then his pet dragon named "Kroma Key" realize they are in the wrong castle, totally forgetting where they parked...

Wow... that felt good to get out! :)

This looks amazing! I'm really looking forward to this.
March 26th, 2011 @ 5:10 pm
AK, is this from something you are doing for Merlin?
March 27th, 2011 @ 2:06 am
Yep checking the site daily too, but it became quiet on here during the last 1-2 months, pretty sad. I do remember the old days of videocopilot. It's not a big criticism, we all know what we were/are able to learn form videocopilot, we do all appreciate it, but I'm just saying. It seems like VC becoms a bigger and bigger company, that's how the personal contact to us gets a bit lost.
Thanks VC and AK for the bautiful time, we are all happy everthing became bigger!
    March 27th, 2011 @ 4:13 am
