Working on a side project that will see the need of various futuristic environments and settings. I am not modelling 98% of these assets but kitbashing from various different sources including the Unreal Marketplace. As usual, lit and rendered realtime in UE4. 

This is for a project that I hope to complete next year that will be a fairly linear adventure style game set in a sci-fi noir setting.

It's been a very busy year! Into my 7th semester of teaching at UT, I've branched out into instructing motion capture animation by creating the Motion Capture Studio class. 

Very impressed and amazed with the student work so far, all done using UT's Vicon system and laid out, lit, shot, edited and rendered with Unreal Engine. Which is a game changer... for this level of resolution, which is quite high fidelity, not having to wa...

It's amazing how every semester I see advances in student learning, not only through ease of use and quality of life improvements in Unreal Engine and our 360 video workflow, but also just in a general interest level. We started out with one section and a small number of students and now w...

It's been a while since I updated this thing - but we've had some great news! 

Hard Reset is officially out on it's first VOD platform - STEAM. This is the same marketplace that has recently embraced short form Sci-Fi content from creators like Neill Blomkamp and his OATS Studios as well as ATX locals Rooster Teeth among others.

We had a wonderful couple of days at ITVFest in Vermont. Met a lot of great people, saw a bunch of cool and inspiring stuff. Feel very lucky to have won the Best Director award, but like any other project this size that is due to the wonderful collaborations that have made it possible. Thanks to everyone (cast and crew, UT3D and investors!) who believed in us and stuck with it, thanks especially to David Bukstein and Taylor Mi...
