city sequence

The shopping cart sequence is followed by the camera flying out of a city. I've cleared this part up a bit. The look will be stereoptyped a'la sim city where I put out arrows and facts on the different elements that literally points out how much oil they need. For instance, farmland->food production 60%, residential buildings ->electricity 20%(?), a road with cars->transport (80%) and ending with airplane-> flight 100% which then will trigger the final.
Maby that doesn't make any sense but here's the previz.

Stardust in "3d world"

Another article on Stardust that mentions my stuff. Kinda the same words as the other one, intresting because it's not true. There's no "target driven" stuff in Stardust, I only put a lot of effort in making it look like that. The first film that will have a proper target driven fluid simulation of this type will be out in a film next year, that stuff will kick my effect in the behind pretty hard so I enjoy this while it last. I wrote a piece here about the technology behind this development but I don't know what's legal and what's not so I leave that for now.

World Map look dev

Updated look on the world map. Just gonna introduce some hand made work in it and then I call it done. More then half way though and yes it's smaller then the real thing.

animated peak chart

Green is before peak oil red is after. I think this tells the story well and it will substitute my plan for export/import switch. I will put a gradient color on the one who's about to change as I am to stop the time at 2007. I will write some stuff on data certainty but only post it on a webpage as I generally don't prioritize the academic details here.

I also got a nasty deadline taking shape. What's coming after this clip is a boat from west to middle east to get oil. In the real world the US navy is getting closer a strike on Iran by each day -a to good paralell to miss for a director.

Me me me

Me and my effect in Stardust was mentioned in a magazine the other week. Link. I didn't feel like posting it here as this blogg is about my art which I try to clear from narcissism. I do however feel that these stuff belongs to my artistic history and so I will keep it here anyway.
