Here comes the king

Last week I contacted my friend Mykola Dosenko, a pixel artist from Urkaine, to see if he wanted to collaborate with me on a project for Snoop Lion. I told him that we had a budget, but only 2 days to work on the project. With 48hrs before delivery, Mykola and I decided that he would design, and I would animate and edit the video. Our workflow was solid, the only thing hindering us was the fact that I live in the US and Mykola was in Ukraine. We squashed all that by deciding that we weren’t going to sleep. Here’s our product :]

I’m happy with how the vid turned out, especially since it’s a lyric video and with the time we were given. This is actually one of my favorite tracks from Snoop Lion project. Super thanks to Mykola for working close with me on this one, we had fun meeting via Google+ during it all. Shouts to the 10 hour time difference!!

Sunday shoot 8/19/12

Last weekend I partnered up with my team over at RudeTOON Records to work on a music video for Marvel the Gr8‘s next single, “Sippin'”. We linked with William Carnahan for direction on the vid and Sam Shimizu-Jones for camera work. They brought over their team to help with production, I handled dumping the footage from the Scarlet since I will be editing the footage…

img_0210 When I wasn’t on set, I was on my laptop reviewing shots, backing up footage, and prepping the clips for the transcoding process. Losing our footage is the last thing we would want to happen.

img_0482 It was great working with all our friends on this one. Usually I’m stuck in the office working on projects, so I forget how much fun it is to work with your good buddies on set. It was super fun times, thanks to everyone for their hard work!!!

Weekend shoot

I spent last weekend working on set for The Airplane Boy’s new music for their new track featuring Twista(produced by Diplo).  We had a blast when we partnered up for The Airplane Boy’s Coachella performance, it was awesome to be working with them again…












img_9635 It was a fun 14hr shoot in San Pedro. Our director, Colin Pierce, had everything running smoothly from the first shot to the last. My role on set was DIT and VFX supervisor, I had to make sure our RED footage was dumped securely and our VFX shots were marked properly so that they’ll be good for post. It was definitely a long day, but the crew was determined to have a successful shoot. Now it’s time for some post-production, where I’ll be handling the VFX.
