BFA: COMPLETED! ... NEXT LEVEL!

Aye! I've been meaning to post this for days now, but I've been pretty busy since the last post.

First and Foremost, I have finally graduated!
It was a tough semester, but couldn't have wished for a more badass class!


So what's next?
Well, I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter in life and happy to say that I'll be kicking it off with Ghostbot Inc. as an Art Intern! Absolutely excited to be joining their team and can't wait to start working on their projects :)




New work coming soon!

Yep, been working on this for awhile now. While there's some pieces from my previous portfolio, there's a bunch of new stuff too! Take a look.

Anyways, that's all.

BFA: Adobe - Background Style Tests

It's amazing to see how many styles changes our Adobe film has gone through; a lot of trial and error especially in the backgrounds. Here's some that I drafted up (some painted) for a sequence in a prehistoric jungle.

We have yet to solidify a style as of now, but we're getting close!

BFA: Adobe Short Film

Sneak peek of what I've been working on (and therefore, lack of posts). 

Part of our BFA class has been largely dedicated to creating a set of short films for Abode's Creative/Research Team. The goal is to inspire Abode's think tank with the possibilities and impact of future technology. 

My team and I have been exploring the concept of the Future Classroom, and how new holographic and interactive technology can help improve learning (as well as teaching) in a classroom.

Below are some early visuals I made of the futuristic classroom, along with ideas of how holograms can enhance the space.





At one point, we had the idea of making the classroom similar to a simulated-motion ride, where students can feel themselves floating through space, or feel the rumble of approaching dinos. 
But then, what the heck, why should the kids be tied down? 
Let them run free through the classrooms!

This film is currently production, so keep a look out for more Adobe work :)
