GRABBER - Logo Animation and Video Editing
I was tasked with creating an exciting Grabber intro as well as an intro for the series of training videos "Ask the Experts". Russ Wulf was responsible for all of the video editing as well, using provided footage and photographs.
This striking promo kit was designed by the talented team at Truss. I was enlisted to create a 3D rendering of the kit prior to production, and in order to showcase the kit in a pristine ideal setting.
This was a learning exercise to teach myself how to properly do 3D scanning. In this case, I selected an interesting rock, took around 30 pictures from various angles, imported those using 3D scanning software, cleaned up the point cloud, converted it to a mesh, generated a UV map and texture, and then applied the rock, with several duplicates to create an interesting CG scene. In order to showcase the quality of the scan, the scene includes only scaled duplicates of the rock and a flat plane (water) with two round spheres.
Grabber Training Video
A product training video based on provided video footage, music, and a written script. Russ Wulf provided extensive 3D replacement for machinery, logos, tools, and a shot of the manual. These shots required 3D motion tracking, modeling, masking, and animation. Russ Wulf also provided the intro and outro sequences.
PARC Technology Video
For this project, I did all of the 3D animation, music composition, editing, text overlays, audio recording, and much of the custom video work and script editing. The project was done in conjunction with Truss (www.teamtruss.com)
These 3D renders helped our client to present their product line prior to having physical product.
Truffle Scene Render
This scene was created based on existing package design to convey a sense of warmth and nostalgia.
Loft 213 Product Visualization
3D modeling and rendering for a Truss brand. Images were created for use in a retail buyer sales sheet. Graphic design and product design were done by other team members.
Chocolate Bite Visualization
I took an AI file of the proposed design (created by another team member), made it into a bump map, and applied it to the very simple product shapes. This method is useful for very quick visualization
Trade Show Brochure
I designed this brochure for use at a trade show. The objective was to create a more exciting look for a very corporate brand. The first image is a 3d visualization of the brochure.
Retail Package Visualization
This is a set of 3D renderings for use in promotional materials by retailers. The product model is from the production mold. The packaging was build using the actual die line, and the artwork was created by another team member at Truss. I wrote the copy for the package design and made some minor alterations to prepare the artwork for press
3D Clock With Video
This is a personal project I create to sell on the Blender Marketplace. I did all design, modeling, rigging and material setup from scratch.
3D tablet modeling and rendering for package design.
Fully rendered product and merchandising display, including renderings displayed on package design.
3D Renders based on provided label designs.
T-Shirt design element for the World Folkfest
Book Cover Design
The client approached me with a partially designed cover and asked me to bring it through to completion. Most of the existing elements had to be recreated. In the end, I feel this is a much stronger, more compelling approach.
Sculptris Character Doodle
This is a quick Sculptris character doodle I did as an experiment. Fun tool. I may take it into blender and add detailed texturing and lighting. We'll see.
Holiday Container Concept Render
This is a 3D rendering based on a provided design for a product pitch.
Pot Concept Renders
Created an innovative node setup in Blender to generate highly realistic materials which determine the amount of texture wash to apply to different regions of the containers based on the pattern's height map. These renders need to be able to happen very quickly. With this setup I created, each of these images only takes 30 seconds to render.
Inspired by the need for silence. Created in Blender. Select as the image of the day on the official site for Blender news, blendernation.com.
Chocolate Caramel Packaging Render
This render set was used to pitch a potential product and its related packaging design.
Pouch 3D Visualizations
The client needed high resolution, consistent images of each of the items in their new line for use on their website and in other marketing materials. I modeled a base pouch, scene and lighting setup and created renders using provided artwork for each of the items.
This model was built using a physical prototype for reference. Final renders were used on the package design and in other promotional materials. Multiple images were created to illustrate the installation process.
Multi-Product Merchandising Display Render
This is a 3D rendering of a hypothetical display of Truss products. This was used to pitch the concept to retailers. My involvement is was in the modeling and rendering of most of all of the items. The display itself was modelled by another team member prior to handing it off, and all package and product design was pre-existing.
Seasonal Truffle Box Render
A 3d rendering used for packaging design visualization. The design for the box was done by another team member.
Sports Themed Display and Product Render
This display and product render were created to help showcase a product concept.
