Laser design for fashion film shoot. One of my favorite shoots ever. This type of work leads to fun study time on beam irradiance.

6 short films shot across a couple days.
Director: Fabien Baron
Cinematographer: Philippe LeSourd.
Gaffer: Will Urie
Key Grip: Johnny London Jr.

Fun car treatments with good friends at Aggresive.tv again.
We built a 3 mil LED structure 30' high, 120' linear, 3 sided box with an additional ceiling on motorized trolleys and rigged for tilting.
Custom touchdesigner engine for driving 10 outputs of 1920 x 1080 cued from camera automation.
Live color grading LED as well as painting the position of the LED ceiling on the car per shot proved to be very effective.

Momentum reached out to me about a few water shows at the same time including this one. It went through many versions of grandeur before time and logistics placed us on a pier with a water curtain.
The event centered around a realtime interactivity component with animation engines, sound FX, lighting and lasers responding to players and tennis ball position.
Here are three videos, one of the actual deliverable edit, one a compilation of assets from Volvox, and the third a full event recording.

Bionic League reached out during a very busy fashion week for Kanye. I was tasked with using an LED ceiling as a light box similar to office fluorescents with as much flexibility and color shift as possible. Used Touchdesigner to create the grid and drove each cell as a fixture from the lighting desk for motion.
Working with the broadcast team to find this stark, cold, almost macabre vibe with emptiness behind at certain moments was an interesting coloring task. Models needed to look great in the space while also creating a very stylized look on camera.
Ended up creating an interface in the lemur to run the cells and work the color mixing on an ipad from out on the floor with models in the space during rehearsal creative process.
Designed a projection mapping system for launch of Bentley's GT3 R version continental. Aggressive.tv on the animation. Touchdesigner for the mapping and playback.
