ShyB: The Run

This was a triple music video for hip hop artist Shy B. The videos string together to form a short film. I did more traditional CG chores than I'm used to for this project. Normally, I'm hired to take care of the generative elements that need a code artist. This time, I did the 2D/3D rotos, matched shapes in Maya, painted photoshop masks, and did final compositing with the help of Becca Shostak. Shy's handwriting was added to the space, the words moving and reacting to the performer. In one shot, we replaced a license plate. In another shot, we added graffiti to the side of a moving truck.

Black Eyed Peas: Boom Boom Pow

Code was written at Motion Theory to generate content and effects in the Black Eyed Peas' Boom Boom Pow video. Amongst this highly collaborative effort were two other code artists: Keith Pasko and Ryan Alexander. After the video was finished, Keith and I went on to collaborate again on creating custom VJ software used by VSquared Labs in the Black Eyed Peas live tour. The VJ software processes a realtime video feed, and was written in C++ OpenFrameworks. The keyboard was filled with different behavior and content controls. If we had more time, we would have connected it to a Lemur device communicating via OSC. Once again a job well done with Motion Theory, and the beginnings of a relationship with VSquared Labs.

Modest Mouse Dashboard

This music video turned out to be a unique family effort, rewarding in the end. A couple of the island shots feature the pop celeb's face rendered by our custom after effects plugin, Pixel F. Meanwhile indoors, Gabriel takes a simple springy spider web I had set up and activates it artistically using pointer bugs and interpolation error. The JChain addiction is born. Special l33t props go out to Gabe as well for his MEL fish fin wave behavior!
