    Hi guys, Finally, after sleepless nights I finished my entry for the Cook Off Contest held by SideFX, the maker of Houdini. Just a few points: - This is my first finished project done in Houdini and it was fun and a great way to learn the software; - Modeling, shading, lighting and rendering is all done in Houdini and the Mantra render; - No composing and no render on passes. This is the complete opposite of how I use to work but the contest rules don't allow using another software for compositing and I didn't had time to learn Houdini compositing part so I decided to render only the beauty pass. Was an interesting take but I missed the flexibility given by rendering on layers approach. - I've applied some grading in post using Nuke as it is allowed by the contest rules; - Edit was done using FCP X; - Average render time per frames was around 20 minutes, peaking at 32 for the shot with the snowy sugar; Hope you like it, Thanks for watching!

              I recently visited family in Northern Norway. This was in the end of summer when berries grow and summer is just about to turn in to autumn. One day I went with my nephews and niece up int he mountains to pick blueberries. I am surprised that we got enough berries to make pie in the end...we all ate more than we picked...=o) This is just a little video from our trip and also a sort of video recipe on how to make a delicious blueberry pie.

                This experimental video was shot in my studio. I wanted to play with the interactions between frames. I liken it to a video version of pinterest in some regards.
