Updates and News


Hello, Everyone

Another year has nearly passed and once again I'm just now getting around to updating the site. My sincere apologies and thanks for your patience. Here are a few highlights of the past year.

In January, I finished an incredible 6 months worth of design work on Steven Spielberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS. The DVD has just been released so look for some cool behind the scene interviews and artwork.

After completing WAR OF THE WORLDS, I immediately signed on to be Production Designer for Robert Zemeckis' next epic film BEOWULF. This film will be made using the same performance capture process that was developed for THE POLAR EXPRESS and MONSTER HOUSE. Creating a world of Vikings and monsters was new territory for me and I learned a lot during the process.

We are now finished with principal motion-capture 'photography' and transitioning to the next phase of production which will encompass the next two years. The final film will be finished by November of 2007.

In other news, Sony Imageworks and I are continuing to move forward with the ROBOTA game development. After a couple of minor hiccups early in the year, we are now back on track. Here's a little sneak peek at some of the work-in-progress images. I hope you enjoy them and I'll share more just as soon as I can.

Finally, I'm very pleased to announce that ROBOTA is on Snowboards! Look for ROBOTA on K2 ReconRiser snowboards this season. Check them out here for more info. Many thanks to the wonderful folks at K2 for this fantastic opportunity. I have always wanted ROBOTA snowboard gear.

Note: The actual snowboard looks much better than these images because the gold metallic finish doesn't photograph well.

Wishing you much peace and happiness this holiday season and I'll see you next year!
