Spiderman 3

September 15, 2011 in Production

I worked with the teams at CafeFX and cebas to produce particle destruction animations and lighting solutions for Spiderman 3. In the interior shots of the crane going through the office building, I worked on creating a clean and flicker free global illumination solution to match the background plates and action in Maya. In the destruction scenes where the crane is crashing through the building, glass, and concrete, I designed workflows to allow the software to produce the needed effects as well as created production setups to achieve the final result.

Nim’s Island

September 14, 2011 in Production

It was a great pleasure to work with the CafeFX team on Nim’s Island. I worked closely with Michael Sean Foley, the CG Supervisor on the film, to create a flicker free global illumination simulation for the CG characters in the film. I also help to create shaders to achieve the proper displacement and overall look of the CG lizard character. Lastly, I was instrumental in creating the render pass pipeline to give the compositing team the most flexibility after rendering the character passes.
