Tie Fighter Flyby animation. Everything was animated in Cinema 4D R18, and the Adobe Creative Suite was used to bring it all together. Almost 240 hours were needed to render the separate passes for compositing. Enjoy!

A How-To video on repairing a chair leg. There are multiple ways of doing this, but this way worked best for me. Hopefully this gives you some ideas on how to repair your broken chair leg. Enjoy.
Star Destroyer entrance (a la Rogue One), and Kylo Ren’s shuttle flyby. 3D animation was done in Cinema 4D, compositing in After Effects, sound FX editing in Audition, and everything was brought together in Adobe Premiere. Enjoy.
My interpretation of a Star Destroyer exiting light speed. Inspired by the Scarif battle scene in Rogue One. Cinema4D was used to create the animation, and then the output was brought into Adobe Premiere for the addition of sound, and some colour correction.
After I completed the paver installation in 2013 ( LINK ), it was time to finish the rest of the front landscaping. As always, I am not a contractor; there may be better ways to do this.

The tires were starting to buckle, and one of them had a slow rim leak. The threaded 1/2″ […]
Today I decided to change the front bumper on the Fiero. The 300zx bumper, or the “Scarab”, is a rarity. I’ve never seen a Fiero with one installed in Canada; I purchased it via Kijiji. PISA makes the bumper, and the fiberglass work is top notch.
Inspired by the worm hole in the film Interstellar, …I decided to make my own version in After Effects CC 2014. It’s surprisingly easy to do – it’s just a multitude of layers using the lens and bulge effects. This is how the gravitational lensing is achieved – although it’s not scientifically accurate. The working […]
Just shot a quick video walking around the Fiero yesterday.
With the purchase of a Dolphin American 12 Jon boat, I needed a way to transport it to the the river. The solution? Build a boat dolly on wheels. I managed to find a free set of bicycle wheels that someone was parting with – I freshened them up with a coat of paint. I began with […]
