First App Icon

July 29, 2012 in Design, technology, Uncategorized by Jesse


This is the first icon/logo I’ve ever designed for an actual iPhone app. It’s for an augmented reality app demo that we were working on at MutinyFX last week. The sizing template is by Michael Flarup.

VFX Breakdown

July 25, 2012 in 3D, Behind the Scenes, VFX, video/TV/film by Jesse

VFX breakdown of a shot I worked on with Dustin Solomon and Stuart Lippincott at Mutiny FX. Dustin did the color correction, set up 3D tracking, and tweaked it after I finished. Stuart created the model of the spaceship. I did the composite, created the building background in photoshop, and did the helicopter. This is one of the early projects Dustin let me work on for my internship.


Below is a promo video for a project we’ll do sometime in the future.

Gaffer Work

July 20, 2012 in Lighting, portfolio, video/TV/film by Jesse

I went to Roswell, New Mexico June 14th to work on this short film as the gaffer. It was made as part of the week long film competition for the comic con there. Jacob Roebuck was the producer, Andrew Armstrong III was the director, and Jesse Smith was the director of photography. I worked primarily as the gaffer but also did some visual effects and did the hand acting on the monitor.

While we were there Janna and I visited the White Sands National Monument, the Carlsbad Caverns, and stopped by the Palo Duro Canyon as we drove through Texas. The White Sands National Monument is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever been. You should go.
