  I’ve updated my demo reel. I just added some of the movies I’ve worked on for the last few film. Just a little bit of tweaking here and there, that’s why I’ll say this is the 1.2 version of the reel. I’ve worked on many interesting projects in the last…

Euan Uglow’s paintings (1932-2000) are the result of direct observation, the model had to sit for the painter however long that took. Uglow’s demand on models was legendary, often painting the same painting for several years. The toll of modeling and life…
Euan Uglow’s paintings (1932-2000) are the result of direct observation, the model had to sit for the painter however long that took. Uglow’s demand on models was legendary, often painting the same painting for several years. The toll of modeling and life itself bearing on the model, Uglow recorded it all with an unflinching, clinical gaze—not …

Ingmar Bergman films are not to easy to watch. They contain themes that can be difficult, obtuse, and sometimes impenetrable. We enter Bergman’s world through the eyes of Sven Nykvist, he makes the impenetrable, digestible. He provides the palette that allows us to understand what is happening, and the language that makes Ingmar’s ouvre understandable …

    Interesting story here about realtime rendering and filmmaking. This technology keeps  getting cheaper and cheaper. No too long ago this was the rarefied province of James Cameron and Steven Spielberg, but it seems like in the not too distant future filmmakers of most budgets—specially well funded independents—will be able to use the technology.

Scott Noel is really a draftsman. He sees clearly, puts down what he sees and then infuses it with color. This is no a process description, but a product description. This is what we gather once we look at one of his paintings. Noel is currently faculty…
