The Beatles Rock Band
a Hard Days Night
A Song from the PS3/Xbox360 video game we created for the Beatles. I was a technical artist on this project. I helped maintain the character rigs, wrote scripts to fix the art assets. Rigged the guitars and helped make things work. The NY Times called us "A cultural watershed that may in fact be as significant as the first time the beatles played the Ed Sullivan show."
Pirates of the Carribean
This is one of the official trailers for Pirates of the Carribean Online. I modeled both Jack Sparrow and Jolly Roger(The skull guy with dreadlocks). I also wrote MEL scripts for the artists on the team, textured and modeled environments, and helped export assets to the game engine.

Here's an example of a MEL script I did that bakes the weights on a wrap deformer onto a high res mesh. It should make it quite a bit easier to set skin weights.View the
