Building projection for the "Moscow festival of light 2015" - Guinness World record for largest projection

I am very happy about last nights building projection "19,099 square metre show, titled ‘Light Discoveries’, was projected on to the surface of The Ministry of Defence in the Russian capital, taking the Guinness World record for largest projection. The projection was formed by 142 digital projectors across six towers, providing five levels of projection across the 370-metre facade – which is over six times the width and twice the height of London department store Harrods."

I worked as a VFX supervisor for the lovely people at Drive productions.
Theme of the 6:30min piece is the history and future of electricity.
My tasks were: concept art, Maya and After FX generalist, on set and vfx supervising a team of 8 artists.

4 new music videos for "Build a Bear/ Honey Girls" out

Just noticed that 4 music videos for the new "Build a bear/Honey Girls" franchise I worked on got released.
I did these with the lovely people at HamptonBluff earlier this year; doing previs, renderman shading & lighting, plus a bit of character animation and mocap cleanup.

My 5 year old nieces should be very excited!
