    Stereoscopic Compositing

    So begins another project at work. This is the first time I’ve ever worked on a stereo movie, so i’m learning a lot. Having a shot count that’s double what we normally have is worrying me a little bit, but i’m hoping this project will go a bit smoother than the last one.

    I’m on the Tee Vee!

    I’m a little embarrassed to be posting this, but i’m always up for a little public humiliation. heh. I was on the Big Breakfast, er, Breakfast Television the other day doing a promo for my Superman presentation with New Media Manitoba.

Oh […]

    Superman Returns – The end!!

    Well, I finally saw superman returns yesterday at 9:30 am at the pre-screening at Silver City Polo Park. There were people from work there at 6:30 am to make sure they had good seats. lol. I have to say, that the movie didn’t suck as much as I had thought it might. It was entertaining, but definately on the long side. Cutting RK probably was smart, since if it was in, I don’t think a crazy si-fi opening wouldn’t really […]
