We have never met or been in contact with Edward Joseph Snowden. We are a band of independent and amateur filmmakers in Hong Kong who were both excited and puzzled as to why Snowden chose to come to Hong Kong. While nearly every media outlet wanted to get their hands on him, we decided to produce a short fictional video to depict his experience in HK, and how it would have affected certain parties: Namely, the CIA contingent based in HK who would be tasked to find Snowden. The Hong Kong Police who would be stuck in between the US and China. And the journalists who want to get the scoop. The idea was hatched two days after he revealed his identity, and principal filming began on June 20th. We were also filming on the same day (23rd) when we learned Snowden had left the city. Therefore we ramped up production efforts and published our short film 'Verax' on the 25th. 'Verax' was the alias Snowden used when contacting journalists via encrypted chat services, and means truth-teller in Latin. I myself loved the idea of having Snowden here and the media frenzy it created. I really wanted to make a film based on such real-life news events, especially as it continues to develop. I also wanted to put something out there that is contrary and alternative to what we see in the mainstream media. With the technology we have today, filmmakers can really produce work at ridiculous speed. This project really tested our mettle especially when most of us had day jobs. I myself highly respect Snowden for doing what he did, and the immense dangers and hardship he put himself through. I wouldn't call him a hero or a traitor (especially since I'm not American) just yet as his story is still continuing. Last update I heard here was that he did not board his supposed flight to Cuba and therefore is likely still in Russia. I was dismayed by his departure - not only because we were making this film - but because he seemed to have faith in our rule of law and I also wanted to see how our HK government would continue to fare due to all this pressure from the US. To reiterate, we made this for fun and for the love of filmmaking. We had no commercial or political motives.

        • Tutorial 6 - Diamonds

          Put together this quick-er tutorial on how to make a diamond. It goes over the way I would model one, then a little info about caustics, and finally how to get that prism effect. Also, C4D and AE are put into one file. P.S. - this is a quick render. If you really want to do a high detail rendering, you want to turn on anti-aliasing to best rather than geometry. But that will also increase your render times and I am not known for my patience. Enjoy!

                    ScareMail 2013 web browser extension ScareMail is a web browser extension that makes email "scary" in order to disrupt NSA surveillance. Extending Google's Gmail, the work adds to every new email's signature an algorithmically generated narrative containing a collection of probable NSA search terms. This "story" acts as a trap for NSA programs like PRISM and XKeyscore, forcing them to look at nonsense. Each email's story is unique in an attempt to avoid automated filtering by NSA search systems.

                    • Smoke filled Prism prototype extruded projection

                      This is a prototype for a unique projection surface. I built a geometrical shape and filled it with smoke to use as a projection surface. I've been using the word aquarium because it is most descriptive word I could find to explain what this is. This is a clear plexisglass prism, that I filled with smoke and projected animated lines. The result was a lot richer than I originally imagined. The smoke gives the light a lot more dimension, everything is extruded and looks deep. What's interesting is that the smoke is limited to the walls of the structure, so this effect only takes place inside the prism. What you are seeing are my initial projection tests. The object inside is the smoke machine, but when I build my larger model, the smoke will be injected via a custom tube. The space inside the prism will be empty and feature only the smoke and projections. More to come soon, I'm building a full scale version next week. 6' to 8' feet. Hopefully better video footage will follow. Music Credit: Wen Uuu (Teebs Remix) (Original Mix) - Shlohmo
