Inspired by my recent work at Prologue and working beside the design team I have created a short title sequence for a script which is based upon the story of a mysterious patient who has deleted his memory but not sure exactly for what reason. The plot follows on to him trying to retrace what happen and trying to figure out why he went through this memory erasing operation. Music by Hecq+ More details

I produced this short video to develop my live action work particularly camera tracking, lighting and compositing. The idea was based around my desire to explore Xfrog further and some of its new features. The video was taken with a Panasonic Lumix LX5 and tracked using SynthEyes. The CG shrub was authored in xFrog for Maya with all other elements created in Maya then rendered using Vray 2.0. Everything was composited together in Nuke and finally edited with added audio in Adobe Premiere. For more info and other stuffs visit www.akewt.com. Thanks for watching!+ More details

COLOUR + SOUND -Sennheiser wireless + TASCAM audio recorder (boom mic's on order for 2012). -SOUNDSOAP completed audio cleanup. i have to point out that Soundsoap is FAST + EASY to learn and use. huge thanks to Ray Roman for showing me this software. OUTPUT -prores 422 as a master file, but for web/iphone/appleTv i finally gave try to the 10mps iphone4/ipad format. i couldn't help by notice 720p 5mpbs was producing heavy compression artifacting from all exterior shots with an abundance of leaves/shadows/nature. the 10mpbs iphone4/ipad format gave me a HUGE bounceback in quality. best of all is that this larger format streams and plays flawlessly to the various appleTv's throughout my home without problem. :) -myw follow me via facebook - firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/michaelywong www.michaelywong.com if you would like to share films; feel free to add me as a contact on vimeo. thank you. 2012 EDUCATIONAL SCHEDULE. ==================== looking forward to meeting many of you in the near future as I will be speaking @: infocus // charleston; south carolina USA // jan 2012 *thank you to my friends, colleagues + students alike for the wonderful reception given to me* www.infocusvideoevent.com exposed down under // sydney; australia // early july 2012 myw returns to Australia for the first time in 2 years. www.exposeddownunder.com mayad academy // boracay; philipines // late july 2012 myw is honoured to share the stage alongside some of Philippines top event/broadcast talent. http://mayadacademy.com/ FULL 2012 educational schedule will be continuously updated throughout the year.+ More details
