This one's for Joey, who's soaking up the awesome at Teslacon right now!
I hope you like it!

It's coming along very slowly, but I think it looks pretty darn cool. I still have a few places to fix shots- the robot getting splattered and some other shots liek that as well as placement and positioning and backgrounds. But the exciting thing is that it looks pretty nice.

This is the shot that I've spent the most time on, mainly because I wasn't sure how I was going to pull it off. I had the original background image that I cleaned up, but I wanted the camera to reveal how big the Hypatia really is. After adding all the bunting and getting some needed advice from my friend Mark, I was able to come up with something I'm pretty proud of. I also really like the birds- they really give the scene some kinetics that make it feel more alive and not just a flat picture.

This is a test I did to see how well I could blend a live action shot I did with an actress/steampunk named Cherie Savoie and the blimp I made for the first establishing shot of Boston. I think it turned out pretty well- Although at four minutes a frame, the sequence took 24 hours to complete. I would like to add a little rock and ease that stop a little more, but as a test, I think this looks awesome.

Well, it's been a while, but there's a lot of new stuff coming. Here's the finished monorail train, as well as it's station. In the context of the shot it's in, we'll never get this close, but if there is, at some point in time a webseries, well, this is where some of the action might take place.

This is the sword Mulvey and his stalwart manservant Grimmauld go looking for, and find, in act one. However, during the course of the adventure, it is damaged and leads to a parting of the ways between the inventor and his benefactor. I can not wait to make this next piece!
I almost named it insidiarum fabrica, which is "plot device" in Latin. As it stands, it means "Sisyphus' Despair."
It's a mystery, what can I say? I'm pretty happy with the image and when I printed it out, it's pretty much life size...

I saw this flare in my presets and thought, this looks like the flares in Raiders of the Lost Ark when the Nazi's get it at the end, and used it. My friend Joe said, "if I were to make a machine, a light that bright would indicate somethings about to explode."
So, it's changed, but here's what it looked like before!

Yeah. I've been slogging on this shot for a while now. At last I'm ready to put a fork in it and call it finished. There are a number of additions I'd like to add, but the next shot is really big and I need to start focusing on that. Let me know what you think!

Yeah, these shots are getting better and better. This one is the second establishing shot of a retrofuturistic power station situated in the Boston Commons. It's a work in progress for sure, but I think it shows a lot of promise.

So yeah, here's the same scene a little further along. I've added all the people and the robot and a scene at the end showing the clock to give the shot some perspective. Those robots are going to figure in to the plot a little heavier than originally planned, so stay tuned!

Terry is this renaissance guy who makes miniatures, builds floats, crafts interesting outfits for musical stars and writes music for movies. It's in that last regard that he's working on my film! I love it.

So yeah, I started in on the backgrounds for the long haul. This is one of the ones from the "telegram" scene and once it's populated with people, I think it will look pretty good.
