Qualcomm CES Keynote MAKING OF

Qualcomm CES Keynote MAKING OF

Qualcomm CES Keynote MAKING OFAnother show reunited and wrapped with 1stAvenueMachine 🙂 This time a keynote's supporting animations and vfx for the CES trade show 2012, client was Qualcomm. Check the sidebar to see how it looked live! These are selected shots i worked on mostly during RnD and pre-production, figuring out stuff. The final shots were set up and rendered in their NY facility based on my setups. The final renderings are a mix of Krakatoa, VRay with in camera DOF and Trapcode Form (as well as Plexus for AfterEffetcs). I was not involved in the final renderings and setup so I don't claim any the fame.

Battle of Vienna – RnD and Master Scenes

Battle of Vienna – RnD and Master Scenes I was approached by BlowFishVFX to help them out with some canon fire and dirt hit/mortar impact setups for a polish movie about the "Battle of Vienna" when the turks sieged vienna: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Vienna The international/english title is "September Eeven, 1683" in case you wonder. My part was RnD and master scene setups in less then a week time to create ready made sims/setups that could be popped to objects in scene. Every effect was linked to a master point helper and could be merged and scaled and positioned into place where needed. Like a ready made library item. The canon smoke is pretty violent and noisy. That's due to the windy reference of practical shots. The first few rows of canon would be practical. Some are too violent but that was RnD only 😉 Overall the look was more defined by the practical elements in order to match! Also please pardon my shitty canon animation... Same goes goes for the dirt hits. They were composed in with practical effects like wood bursting, dust and ground/dirt charges that were filmed practical on set.

Droid DNA Commercial

Droid DNA

Droid DNA Droid DNA commercial. This was more of a helping out gig for "The Colony" in NY. I was responsible for hexagons assembling the chassis of the phone, assembling it's 1080p HD hi-def screen and the "beat audio" powered speakers. I used Box# for the random motion and slowing down gradually when getting close to the low res phone chassis i got from the client. The sound was FumeFX driven particles rendered in Krakatoa. FumeFX Follow influence was animated by audio controller, hence the pulsing/bouncing. 5 days total on and off, hexagon elements where exported to Maya and rendered on client side. HTC "Droid Rising."

Wizards of a Waverly Place - The Movie "Alex vs Alex"

Wizards of a Waverly Place – The Movie “Alex vs Alex” Mini Making Of

Wizards of a Waverly Place – The Movie “Alex vs Alex” Mini Making Of I was approached by Encore Hollywood to help out on the Wizards of a Waverly Place movie "Alex vs Alex". I was responsible for most magic wand effects and impacts for ca. 40 shots, this is just a variety selection. The sporty part was the tight deadline of 4 work weeks for round about 260 elements for 40 shots. Each effect was rendered with a geometry core (a spline rig with noise) and 2 different looks that were each rendered with RGB by velocity and by age which totals to 5 elements for 1 magic wand effect. Some times there is both witches fighting and there are impact bursts. So all in all a tight deadline which averages in 3 shots a day setup and rendered 😀 PFlow with Box#3, FumeFX, Krakatoa and global KCMs for the gradients. Peace out to John Rand who helped with the initial KCM madness.
