Troll Hunter VFX Breakdown

Came across this breakdown reel the other day and was very impressed.

Of course, that hooked me and I checked out the movie itself. Good stuff & it turned out to be similar in style to Cloverfield – that is, if Cloverfield were set in Norway and was about trolls . . . Regardless, it’s a great film and, despite the PG-13 rating, delivers a fun and exciting ride. Check it out and be sure to give the makers some pub & buzz!

MPC – Revisioning Clash of the Titans

I remember going to the the old school Harry Hamlin flick when I was a kid, and, when I heard about the remake, I thought the same as a lot of people – BAD IDEA.  Then I saw it – sans 3D on Blu-Ray – and I did a complete 180.  Maybe it didn’t hold up for some critics, but I was more than pleased.  So, just in case you were wondering, here’s some of how they made it happen.

Man, it must be awesome to have a team like that.

Something Down There?

Happened across a great location recently.  It’s perfect for one of those “you don’t want to go down there” type flicks we’ve all seen about 100 times.  Never get sick of those . . .

Anyway, with daylight approaching at long last with regard to Choices and the web re-design, it might be time to see what’s Below . . .

3D Portfolio Redesign

Jake's 3D Generalist Portfolio

One step closer to web organization of vfxjake.com.

Go there now!

Threw a bit of the kitchen sink in on this one in terms of jQuery tricks.  Still getting my feet wet with all of that madness, so don’t expect anything to come through your screen and drastically alter the course of your very existence . . . just yet.  The new 3D reel is also in the works but in a bit of a holding pattern as the new Compositing and Editing reels are ahead of it in the queue.  As always, all the new stuff will include exerts from the great phantom that is Choices.  ‘Til next time.

No surprises.  Rick Baker brought home the Oscar yet again.  Adding to previous wins for An American Werewolf in London, Harry and the Hendersons, Ed Wood, The Nutty Professor, Men in Black, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, gives Baker an unprecidented 7 total Oscar wins against 12 nominations.  Congrats to the Maestro!

Ever thought Swan Lake could work as the backdrop for a horror film?  Neither did I until I saw the trailer for Black Swan.  Check out this breakdown clip of the vfx shots from Darren Oronofsky’s newest.
