Party Info!

Getting close!

Hey everyone!

Enigma is getting close to completion! There were a few bumps this summer and looks like things are rolling forward again. Sound work is almost completed, the FX are moving along great, and the marketing has begun!

Come Join us on Sept 9th, at the Palms Bar in West Hollywood. There is a $20 cover, and that includes 2 drink tickets. It is a fund raiser, so the rest of the money goes to the film. We still have several expenses to get this thing out the door. So come join us and support your favorite scifi film!

I have set many completion dates, but this one is actually in stone.

Enigma: November 2008!

Take care!

Up and rolling again!

Hey everyone!

My time on Hulk is coming to an end, and I can now focus my attention back to getting this epic done! There are 23 VFX shots left to finish (with over 150 finished!), we're about 85% done with the sound design, the DVD design is well underway!

So we're looking at an early summer release. We will throw out details as soon as we figure out where we are going to premiere this thing!

This has been a giant project for Jason and I and we are really excited about getting it out there for all to see. Thanks everyone for your great (and patient) support of Enigma!

How's Enigma going?!

Hey Everyone!

Enigma is moving along well, I didn't quite make my deadline. I got called back to work a bit earlier than I was expecting. They need me to take over as one of animation supervisors on The Incredible Hulk. So for the next 5 weeks, Its crazy 12 hour days, and 7 day weeks. But after that, I should be able to focus on completing Enigma. Things are still moving forward, there is alot of rendering to be done, so this is a good time for that. Also, Sound design is taking a bit longer as well. So all in all, things are still going well, But it looks like its going to be a late spring completion. Not exactly what I wanted, but that just the way it has to be.

On a side note, Rhythm and Hues just won an Oscar for The Golden Compass. This was my first time as an animation supervisor, so Its pretty sweet! and yes, it is as heavy as everyone says.

Thats me and Bill Westenhoffer (VFX sup for compass)

Now I just have to finish up enigma so we can gather up some awards for our crew!

Take care all!
