The wreckage of the Swift.

We never see this much detail in the actual shot; it's blurred and there are a ton of fire elements as well as smoke a a foreground actor. But I really like the mood this sets. Pirates of the Caribbean in Paris was, when it was built, the crown jewel of all of them. There's several wrecks the bateaux pass by and they all have this crazy hot/cool lighting that makes them look surreal. Well, I don't know if I captured it, but I got something I really, really like.

The Adventures in Science trailer!

Joey wanted me to get this ready for the Great New England Steampunk Expo. I had four days to cobble something together, and the results, I think, speak for themselves. All the backgrounds are digital, and for this trailer I ended up using images from other shots. But looking at them, I believe they are all pretty convincing!

The aerobus!

I designed this blimp as sort of a public transportation air bus, for those ladies and gentlemen who don't wish to walk to the street to get a conveyance. I based the seats on the ones in a red car, which we got to ride out at the Orange Empire Railroad Museum. The props spin down (they have an elaborate gear system to be able to reverse quickly, while the main motor sits atop the cabin roof) and the passengers enter from the rear.
