Deployment Strategy the Official Trailer is now online!!! I've got tons of different media formats for your viewing pleasure! come see!
w00t!! it's finally done! For past month, work on 3D animated shots has been rapid fire. I wanted to post some progress shots, but decided to wait until it was all complete to show you the finished work along with progress shots.
Why? Cuz there will inevitably be someone who watches a pre-vis sequence and snickers, "the resolution is so low!!!" when the point is to focus on composition, blocking, and animation. so here's the reel of final shots.
In the coming days, i'll have more stills and materials in this post to show you how it all unfolded. for now, click read more and enjoy the shots!!

Gizmodo today has such a great post about a new South Korean campaign for robot rights!!

I was compelled to post the article link here as well as this clip from the film after the jump!

i had to post this work-in-progress shot for you guys!! I slowed it down to half the speed so you can appreciate/scrutinize my handy work. I'm close to the end of these effects and this sequence is one of the fun ones!! I had to encode in divx so I wouldn't hose your bandwidth. check it yo. When completed and played at regular speed, this sequence is only 10 seconds long! hope you like. more soon. mc
yo it's late! here are 6 visual effects clips that I've done this week.(10 megs, divx) Included here is the expanded scene of the headshot posted earlier this week. more info later!!
Here's an animated gif for you to help you decide if 10 megs is worth the download (is it? oh please)
