For Honor and Glory

Released November 3, 2017

I was tasked with the book end shots of this flashback cinematic featuring Reinhardt Wilhelm and Balderich Von Alder in a flash back to the Omnics invading Eichenvalde, Germany. Responsible for all lighting, rendering, and compositing of shots. Digital matte painting of the sky done for the first three shots, with just supplemental sky work on the first shot (based on Anthony Eftekhari’s work). Lighting lead by Enrique Munoz. Directed by Ben Dai. Art direction by Mathias Verhasselt.

Infiltration

Released November 4, 2016

This cinematic was released during BlizzCon 2016 as a surprise after a long planned ARG (Alternate Reality Game) by Blizzard. I did lighting, rendering and compositing in this project. Lighting lead by Graham Cunningham. Directed by Doug Alexander Gregory. Art direction by Mathias Verhasselt.

The Last Bastion

August 18, 2016

A cinematic for my favorite character of Overwatch, Bastion, and the most heart felt short with no dialogue whatsoever.  All emotion and imagery! I did the lighting, rendering and compositing for these shots. Lighting lead by Enrique Munoz. Directed by Ben Dai. Art direction by Mathias Verhasselt.

Hero

May 22, 2016

The old leader of Overwatch, Soldier 76, cleaning up some of the street gangs of Mexico while inspiring a girl to be a hero. I got to work on mostly the ending sequence of the short doing the lighting, rendering compositing and digimatte for the sky in the last shot. Lighting lead by Fabio Stabel, directed by Jeramiah Johnson.

Dragons

May 16, 2016

A touching story about two brothers, Hanzo and Genji Shimada, lost throughout time but finally reuniting with the clashing of blades. In this short, I did the rendering, lighting and compositing for these shots. Lighting lead by Enrique Munoz. Directed by Ben Dai. Art direction by Mathias Verhasselt.

Recall

May 16, 2016

This was the first Overwatch animated short, featuring Winston, and Reaper.  He calls back all of his friends on the former Overwatch team to fight against new adversaries of the world. I did the rendering/lighting/compositing for these shots. Lighting lead by Fabio Stabel. Directed by Ben Dai. Art direction by Mathias Verhasselt.

Overwatch: Teaser Ad in front of Star Wars TFA

Our first time using Redshift at the studio in this cinematic where there are short one of scenes of heroes in the Overwatch world. This was especially created to be released as a 30 second pre-trailer teaser in theaters for Star Wars: A Force Awakens. I did the rendering/lighting/compositing for the last big shot with all the heroes, with assistance from Mike Hardison and Meg Morris. Lighting lead by Graham Cunningham. Directed by Jeff Chamberlain. Art direction by Stephane Belin.

Overwatch Intro

This was the announcement intro piece to the first new IP for Blizzard in almost 15 years…Overwatch! I had some key shots of the hero character, Tracer through lighting/rendering/compositing and was also tasked to help create the animated logos in English, Taiwanese, and Chinese variants.
