Nike: Find Your Ground

This is a new short film/conceptual video I directed for Nike at Art Center College of Design. Worked with amazing and passionate people. I was going to list the people that had the most impact on the short... but the list became too large.
Johnny Ngo, the A.D. on the project really held us from the brink of insanity. Couldn't have done it without him.

Katsushi Katayama, VFX supervisor, put in more time than I could have asked. He was the golden savior on the project.

David Chen (  ), the lead UI designer was the perfect guy to work wtih and I hope we can work together again some day.
Gabriele Pasqualino, Saiful Haque, Assaf Horowitz, Joe Feinsilver, Vaughan Ling, and many others were an absolute invaluable part of the team throughout the project.

And of course, Pier-pictures  were the backbone of the shoot. Without them, our shoot-day would have been a disaster. You guys were the best of the best.

you can find some process/concept art I did for this on my website:

Gnomon Class demo

I taught a class this term at Gnomon School of visual Effects. It was a great experience and I will be doing it again starting next month or so. Thanks to the students for making it really fun.
Did this for a demo in-class. I will post some of the other ones I did as I find time and also the walk-through/ work in progress of this if I get the chance.

another one on the side.
