Breaking Down Infrastructure. Smart!

Here is the breakdown for the Smart Infrastructure video I posted recently. It’s one of my better ones, I think. VFX Breakdown, I mean.

Incidentally, I’ve noticed that I need to qualify the term “breakdown” with the term “VFX”, or otherwise it gives the wrong connotation. Can you imagine? “Here’s a video of the breakdown I’ve spent so much time on lately!” On the other hand, in this line of work, breakdowns exist in potentia all the time.

Anyway, here’s the video:

Tom Learns Nuke – New Video Series

Tom Learns Nuke

I am happy to announce three things:

First, I am learning how to use Nuke & NukeX, the industry standard compositing software from The Foundry that is used to composite on (pretty much) every film that gets made these days.

Secondly, I like cookies.

Thirdly, I am immortalising my Nuke learning experience by way of a video series, cryptically titled Tom Learns Nuke.

(Note: one of those things isn’t all that relevant to this post.) Read the rest of this entry »

Going Green

You may have noticed that I have changed my banner image to, well, this:

UFO_Green

Unless you’re reading this at a time in the future, when developments have, er, developed, rendering (see what I did there?) this image moot.

You may also have noticed a lot of greenness about the site. And frankly, most people looking at this site (I hope) should understand what this is all about. But just in case, let’s have a quick synopsis. Read the rest of this entry »

Locked Out of Monkey Heaven


A while ago, my friend Adam approached me, to ask if I could greenscreen a video. In actuality, that kind of meant “can you shoot, edit, greenscreen, and etc a video?” And the answer, of course, is, “of course.” But sometimes the concept has to be the hook. Boy, did he have a concept. Read the rest of this entry »

Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now

UFO Over Wollongong Harbour

In late 2012, I did some work tracking an aerial shot of Wollongong Harbour, and inserting a company logo into that shot. I enjoyed that work very much, but when you get right down to it, it doesn’t make for a super-awesome piece to show off. So I decided that, since I already had the tracking data, I would do something a little more fun:
