You know you've reached the pinnacle of spearfishing when 150 lb Yellowfin Tunas swim effortlessly 10 feet from the tip of your spear. In 2014, we visited Ascension Island to hunt in the clear blue water. Regularly we saw Yellowfin and Bigeye Tuna (up to 300 lb), Wahoo (up to 200 lb), and Marlin (up to 1,000 lb). Not to mention the incredible diving with Whale Sharks and Manta Rays. Ascension Island, though not an easy place to get to, is well worth the journey. Sometimes we have to travel to the ends of the Earth to find the fish of a lifetime. View our experience from 2014 in Last Breath Film's "The Grove".
We'll be returning to Ascension Island in 2015 for guided spearfishing trips by Cameron Kirkconnell from May 13-30.

This was the last project i had the opportunity to work at Autofuss. My role in this fun project was to first 3D model the three Google devices, then i had to create the lighting of the scenes, and optimize the render settings for a good but at the same time fast render, and of course work on the animation.
I had the honor and pleasure to animate with Jason Kerr, Ryan Chen, Jarratt Moody, and of course anything of this wouldn't be possible without the great compositing skills of Pedro Figueira. Also a big thanks for everyone else who helped us and kept us going.
I thank everyone from Autofuss for making my stay there, so fun and productive. It was a great experience. Im gonna miss you all, and maybe some day, i will get to see you guys again.
For the launch of the new Nexus family of devices, we imagined a playful world of Google services interacting around a stack of devices. We can't help but smile when the whale emerges out of the water and a pterodactyl leads us into the new Nexus 10 tablet, a visual interpretation of the Playground is Open tag line.
