Fresh off the UE4 crash course project that was “Paramnesia”, we aimed to make a more narrative VR experience using the Oculus Rift DK2. As we began to work on this project, videos such as these were all the rage, showcasing high-end screen-space graphics and insanely detailed real-time rendered environments. We wanted to play with this popular notion of realistic real-time generated environments, while also exploring the idea of an "Alice in Wonderland" decent into software calculations and imperfection.

As the tension rises, the intensity of the edit follows. The title captures the drama of the Knick through the different stages of an operation. The preparation; the build up; the performance and the outcome. We show these stages without revealing the actual patients.
Concept, production and execution:
'Digital Shrine' is a projection mapped installation created for 'Are We Content?' Gallery Exhibition.
"The structure references the idea of an idol … what the internet has become to many of its users. The projections represent the way people are perceived and how they perceive others through these antisocial, digital relationships.”
-Moss, Eddy Nieto
Based off Troika's "Something More" tagline, we sought out to create two idents for AMC with the themes Going Deeper and Unexpected Twists. It was important that we keep the premium quality of AMC and make the idents have a cinematic feel.

Revolutions redefine the world’s history one great event at a time. Perhaps one of these moments was the proposal of the Big Bang theory. R-EVOLUTION is about that discovery and the way it reexamined and clarified how everything could have begun. It changed the way we think about our origins and about how else the universe tells the story of everything. In that way, discovery is in itself a Revolution.
This was a concept for a short informative piece explaining what the Big Bang theory is and its effect on the scientific community.
Revealing deep emotions is about being vulnerable and transparent. Like a love letter, when you confess your love for someone you are left in suspense, anticipating a response after unveiling your true feelings. Being that exposed is not easy. These boards speak to that suspense, and the moment when you become transparent and await a response, whether good or heartbreaking.
In the titles, we see Sam, the protagonist, work through the process of creating an arrow, which symbolizes his straight forward thinking and logical approach to life's problems. He is logical, meticulous, and orderly. Both his pre-calculated steps and end result aid to introduce him to us and to get a quick but effective understanding of the personality we will soon encounter, and no doubt fall in love with.
Directly inspired by Wes Anderson's cinematic style, I create a short narrative that introduces us to Sam before actually discovering who he is. Capturing Sam without actually showing him proved to be challenging but payed off in the end by creating an element of mystery as to who this character could be and his significance to the story.
I really enjoyed shooting and editing this piece. Moonrise is one of my favorite Wes Anderson films, so I was excited to work on it. Enjoy!
Brief: Show me summer.
Ahh summer, the season of refreshment! Though I love my fair share of sunshine, beaches, and cool drinks, I spend a lot of time alone truly relaxing and delving into my own interests. I shed away the mid-year stresses and leave some time for reflection on half a year done... right (hopefully).
