• Rolla - You know you like it

    Who said you can’t chop a rolls

    Monday, June 2, 2014

    I love Rolls Royce. One my favorites is the 1959 Silver Ghost III but I also love hot rods and custom cars. Given that here is my Silver Ghost, I call it Rolla. It has been slammed and had almost 5″ chopped out of it. The only thing it is missing is some Von Dutch […]

    Custom S5 – Everything is better in black

    Tuesday, March 11, 2014

    This is a quick render I did the other day. It was rendered in V-Ray and comped in Fusion. My only thought when I started this image was everything looks better in black which is definitely true when it comes to cars. The gold stag on the number plate is the Mackenzie stag. I will have a making […]

    Ocean Water Test – HOT4MAX

    Tuesday, March 4, 2014

      So a little while ago I wrote a quick article about a plugin I purchased called HOT4MAX . Long story short, this a very short render test of the plugin. I put the test together in about an hour, as you can no doubt tell by the camera animation. I can report, that the plugin […]

    Monday, February 3, 2014

    So I thought I would have a go at creating a music clip for a competition on Genero. The track was challenging and very much outside of your usual music clip territory not just for being a classical piece of music but mainly for its rapid changes in pace and the abruptness of it. As […]

    EXPERIMENTAL: An Idea Is Born

    Monday, January 27, 2014

    I am calling this one an experimental video as it was done very quickly (in less than a day). Very simply, I think it is a visualisation of where or how an idea is created. If nothing else it is a little bit of eye candy. Below is the clip and underneath that is a […]

    Aston Martin short/tvc/video thingo…

    Tuesday, January 21, 2014

    So I thought I would start the new year off with some making of clips from a little animation I have been working on. It was inspired as you no doubt will be able to tell by Joseph Kosinski’s Black Bird spot that he made some years ago. I have always liked it and thought I […]

Tutorial – Fusion, Zdepth, EXR’s, 3dsmax

It is AMAZING how often people ask me about this. I wrote a tutorial way back in 2010 about how to use Z-Depth passes in Fusion. To this day it still gets a lot of traffic. However, that tutorial is somewhat out of date and seems to be causing more confusion than clarity. So here is […]

Shooting – The Sony FS700

The Sony FS700 – A bit of beast So as many of you might have seen I recently shot a music clip. I shot the clip on a Sony FS700 primarily because of its ability to shoot slow motion, slow-mo aside though, I really enjoyed shooting on it. Not having having used the camera before I […]
