At the end of each spring semester, the Academy of Art has their annual spring show which showcases the best student work. We produced some really great Visual Effects and Animation work this year.

VFX Cine – RED One shoot – Marina

Sunday, March 29th, 2009 No Comments »

For our second field trip, the school rented a RED One Camera and we shot a few plates in the Marina district of San Franscisco. There has been a lot of hype about the RED so it was really nice to be able to mess around with it. I have to say, it can be quite intimidating at first with all the options that are available on it. The great thing about the red is that you completely bypass any film processing as the files are stored digitally onto either a harddrive or memory card. We shot a few items at high frame rate at 160fps.


VFX Cine – 35mm shoot – Treasure Island

This was the first field trip in my VFX Cinematography class. The location is Treasure Island in between San Francisco and the East Bay. We used a 35mm Film Camera and we also had a Panasonic HPX 500 digital camera. This was the first time most of us ever used a 35mm camera so this was quite a treat.

Thailand – Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket

Friday, June 13th, 2008 No Comments »

I took an incredible trip to Thailand for two weeks with my brother. After another long semester, it was a well deserved break. My brother lives in NY, so we actually flew separately and met up in the hotel at Bangkok. The first week, we toured through the mainland from Bankgok, all the way up north to Chiang Mai. The cities we stopped along the way were Nakom Pathom, Kanchanaburi, Ayuttaya, Sukhothai, and Phitsanulok. While in Chiang Mai, We took a tour further north to Chiang Rai and to the Golden Triangle. This is where Burma, Loas, and Thailand intersect, and there is an interesting history behind this regarding opium production (wikipedia article). The final week, we flew south to the island of Phuket and relaxed at the JW Marriot resort (my brother used one of his time shares). The resort was phenomenal to say the least. It was with […]
