Real Steel
Congratulations to my team and the crew for a job well done on Real Steel! The show is up for the Best Visual Effects, along with Hugo, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two, Transformers 3, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Full nominee list is here.

On a side note, happy new year! It's been quite a while since I last posted anything of merit here.  Last year was the year of commercials for me, as I worked almost nonstop for the last half of the year on a plethora of Digital Domain commercials. I had a great time, and the teams were phenomenal. I had a chance to work with all of our commercial supervisors as well as several commercial directors, and it was a treat.

Real Steel - Comic-Con 2011 - July 21, 2011
Today Real Steel comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD! Be sure to pick it up to see the great work that Digital Domain did on the show. We were the main vfx house on it, with Legacy being the model house that created the full size robots for the film. On the right is Ambush, one of the robots, and this thing is huge.  It only becomes apparent how big they are when you're actually standing next to them in the same room!  Ambush was one of the first robots we created digitally, and I was the compositing lead for the sequence involving him at the beginning of the film.  That sequence also had a digital bull. Try and figure out which shots have the digital robot and bull and which ones are practical!
