Lovaganza from J-Scott on Vimeo.

I had the opportunity to once again team up with the awesome team at The Academy. Working with Director Colin Hesterly, I brought the stunning designs of Dan Matutina to life and the end result is a beautifully fluid ode to a simpler time; referencing things like The Worlds Fair and Disneyland’s World of Tomorrow. Hoping to make the world a better place through the magic of animation, paired with the message of love, I hope you enjoy the result as much as we enjoyed the process.

Part of the creative process of Skylines art installation patriciogonzalezvivo.com/2014/skylines/

Made using openFrameworks ( here is the addon github.com/patriciogonzalezvivo/ofxStreetView ) and google street view.

It was printed in postcards revealing the invisible information of a city that is otherwise trapped inside corporate databases, freeing private information collected from public spaces.

Siggraph 2014 Rewind - Lorcan O’Shanahan, Day 02: Enders Game Interface Design and Mograph Magic from Cineversity on Vimeo.

In this presentation, Lorcan O’Shanahan demonstrates techniques he used in creating HUD and screen elements for Ender’s Game. Lorcan explains how to optimize and utilize complex CAD models in MoGraph-style animations, how to use Cineware in After Effects to composite 2D elements within 3D space, and how to optimize clone systems with the Matrix Object and Effector Visibility.

Lorcan shows a unique rendering technique utilized in the Lilly title sequence. A world-space gradient generates a monochromatic look reminiscent of a depth pass, with Xpresso that makes this technique very flexible and easy to control.

Finally Lorcan demonstrates an Xpresso Car Rig he’s created, and shows how to animate the car along a path and crashing into a pile of tires with the help of Rigid Body Dynamics.

Butter Fingers from J-Scott on Vimeo.

“Butter Fingers” explores some of the more unique items you might not want to let slip through your fingers. Let’s face it, if you can’t relate to dropping at least a handful of the items pictured, then you’re either utilizing duct-tape to it’s fullest potential or it was you who dropped the grenade. Condolences.

Creating “Butter Fingers” was no easy task and entirely a labor of love for the better part of 2 years. Finding time during evenings and weekends, until all hours of the morning occasionally, holidays etc. until the ground was filled with all the bits and pieces of unlucky items.

Although I was a team of one to formulate the ideas, illustrate, design and animate the visuals, that is only half of the pie. I worked with a pair of extremely talented people, each in their own right. Cyrille Marchesseau composed a stunning score based off of a single “Home Alone” reference I provided and created a soundtrack that opens up a colorful world I wouldn’t have been able to arrive at on my own. Wesley Slover brought the items to life with marble hits and soda sprays galore, working from my ambiguous descriptions and requests until they were just the right amount of fun. Once everything was complete, he was also responsible for the crisp final mix that you hear now.

A special thanks to all those who answered my questions and helped solve problems I otherwise would still be stumped by, including Matthew Sienzant, Mike Florio, Chad Tafolla, Ryan Summers, Ben Tucker, Forbes Hill, Michael Dibblee, Justin Demetrician, and my beautiful wife Katie (who put up with more floor crashes than anyone should ever be asked to).
