Life of Pi

Life of Pi won best Visual Effects at the Oscars yesterday!!!  Although it came at the price of one of the leading VFX houses filing for bankruptcy and the absolute insult of silencing the truth when being mentioned at the Oscars.

I wasn't part of the Rhythm and Hues team, but I was able to play a part in the film.  Here are some of the characters I modeled in ZBrush which were then rapid prototyped to create puppets, and live action props.



Here is a link to some of the inner workings of the production.  You can see the molds for the jellyfish and fish that I had sculpted.
