The Ambassador (14th Street Renovation, Denver, CO)

This was an exceptional project to work on. I was responsible for the technical direction as well as the vegetation and some of the storyboarding and conceptualization. Getting it to render with all the glossy reflections was a real challenge, but with a little creativity and hackery we got it to work. I wish I were responsible for more in this as it's really an amazing bit of work.

Presidio Parkway reveal video

I was the director and technical lead on this animation. Getting the vegetation and volumetric int he first shot was really tough on such a tight deadline, but thanks to the render farm, the scene made it into the final cut. :D
I was also responsible for the cameras, effects, rendering and lighting as well as modeling and texturing vegetation modeling and placement, and the ocean shader that we use in nearly all out projects that have... oceans and the traffic script that we use for... :D
