I have worked in several areas of art and technology during my tenure at Blue Sky and these reels showcase a range of development and production work I have been involved with since 2,005.
I created this Rio technology reel for submissions to Siggraph; it showcases some of the plugin and look development work I did for the film.
While these reels highlight shots with my own visual and/or technological contributions, it goes without saying that animated films are a major collaborative effort. I owe a debt of gratitude to the Fur, FX, and R&D departments (especially Maurice van Swaaij, manager of the R&D group, for the development of our voxel and fur generation plugins and for being a wonderful and patient mentor to me over the years) and to all of the artists who contributed to the final look of these films. Specific information about my contributions can be found on my site in my reel breakdown, my personal Horton Siggraph abstract and the 'modular generator' sections of the Rio Siggraph abstract.
Thanks for watching!
