Fun At Jurassic Park

It’s rare these days to get to do a project “just for fun,” but when you happen to end up on the backlot for the Jurassic Park series, its not hard to let your inner child out.

My good friends Stephenie and Matt had an amazing wedding at Kualoa Ranch on O’ahu, so I had to take advantage of replicating the visuals from the iconic and eye-popping film. As a kid, Jurassic Park was a major inspiration for me getting into animation and visual effects. The movie changed the game in terms of creating a realistic organic life form for film. A perfect blend of practical and digital effects were used to scare the crap out of the audience.

Recreating the famous t-rex was done using a 3-D model in Maya, and then compositing finished in Photoshop.

Looking forward to the new Jurassic World film coming out this summer!

Making Waves

Honokea Surf Villages & Resorts

Honokea is a very unique company with whom I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with this year.  They develop large-scale real estate projects around leading edge wave-making technology.  The result is an eco-friendly surf village that surrounds a wave pool that is created using the only viable man-made waves for surfing.

Needless to say, this is a complex business to convey to potential clients, partners and investors.

Working with members of the Honokea executive team, we created marketing materials that included a new website and sales video. Both pieces are being used to collect leads for potential investors.
