Independence Day: Resurgence VFX Breakdown

Cinesite have released a showreel, most of it shows a lot of the layout work I lead on Independence Day: Resurgence in London. This involved a large of full CG cam moves, matchmove camera, animation, environment and set dressing layout. Looking at the reel it was an incredible turnaround on such a short schedule!

Alien: Isolation Cutscenes

So what seems a long time ago I did some work for the great team at Axis Animation up in Glasgow on Alien: Isolation. It involved producing cutscenes from mocap animation they'd shot on set with actors, producing a sequence of shots almost as a digital DOP, as a result I spent a lot of time watching the original Ridley Scott film and David Fincher's Alien 3 for composition and angles on shots.

Unfortunately a lot of sequences I worked on were cut due to story/directional changes in the game, but here's a few shots from some of the sequences cut together with some of the original score for added atmosphere!
