Gatorade - Inside Crosby (2007)
For this rich scene of what's going on inside an athlete's head, Mark Kudsi had me writing C++ code to generate slowly growing neurons into a stretched screen 'topiary'.
An adhoc rendering cluster was used to quickly render random seeded versions as we evolved the style into the fantasy vision
Buick - Behind The Beauty (2010)
For this project, we tried a handful of intelligent particle
techniques. One of the approaches was to have me write a
renderable simulator in OpenFrameworks that could fuse our
specific mix of generative diagrams, numbers, shapes, and
line-art into a magical fantasy breeze. The app ...
IBM Data Baby (2010)
This project required a lot of research demo programs. The
job holds the new record for most code artists (8) hired on
one MTh job. Our apps began receiving animated curves from
maya, we introduced a new speed-optimized OBJ sequence file
format, and we continued to accumulate maya ex...
Black Eyed Peas: Boom Boom Pow (2009)
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 ...
HP Paulo Coelho (2007)
For Paulo, finger trails of personal photos dissipate like horse hair
underwater. My C++ JImage object is born - something that allows pixel
addressing that can also update its display list cached textured unit
rect. I later based a hair style on this aesthetic. It was a pleasure
to collaborate on ...
Nike 'One' (2006)
Motion Theory's workflow of the Nike 'One' commercials did not just benefit from an applet programmed by one of the team members. This time, the core workflow became a team of four visual programmers risking carpel tunnel to generate a diversity of floating engineering graphics using every trick in...
Bud Select - Just a Game (2007)
For this superbowl spot, I had another amazing collaborative coding
experience with Gabe Dunne. The approach was different in high level
regards. Our generative renders were being used as concept for other
artists to flesh out into several shots and variations. We were also
coasting on a sufficient...
Modest Mouse Dashboard (2007)
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 usi...
HP Pharrell (2006)
had the great honor of doing (more) algorithmic particle artistry with
Motion Theory to produce this stunning new HP commercial, for their
"The computer is personal again" campaign. Spinning spools of
typographic smoke, shaking the pixels off shoes, and of course, a
swarm of gratuitous abstract coo...
