1. This is the compositors cut of The History of Light, created for TED Conference audiences. Directed by m ss ng p eces, we travel through time to witness the role lighting has played in our lives through out the centuries.

    Stop-motion paper worlds created by Po-Town Pictures brought this piece to life. My roles were as visual effects supervisor and compositor. I worked on set through out shooting, advising shot setups and managing data. From there all sequences were brought back to John Earle, Inc sudios for post production. Working closely with director, Josh Nussbaum, we added secondary camera moves, refined the edit and added additional animation. Compositing was quite elaborate even though many scenes were 100% in camera. We shot everything at multiple exposures in order take full advantage of the qualities of lighting in each scene. I was then able to extract the desired elements from any of the exposures to achieve the final look. Overall a great project to work on with wonderful results.

    Created for MAC Cosmetics to promote their new line of Wonder Woman inspired cosmetics. Using only 5 illustrations, created by Michael Allred, I was able to tell an energetic and engaging story. I wanted to take the retro comic feel and bring it into a contemporary realm; incorporating 3D comic elements that burst of the page, separating the illustrations in order to create a world with depth, dynamic camera moves, and other visual trickery to keep the action going. The icing on the cake is the cinematic original score by Beta Petrol. This was a lot of fun to work on, from concept to delivery. Thanks again MAC!
