Kazuo Ishiguro, the author of "The Remains of the Day" and "Never Let Me Go" was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature today.

I was privileged to have produced the Theatrical Trailer for the Mark Romanek’s film version of "Never Let Me Go" for Fox Searchlight at MAX-Q with Gene Gamache. Gene's sensitive and emotional trailer cut masterfully tells the deeply emotional story of a dystopian future where young adults are raised, groomed and "harvested" for the sole use of this society’s callous and humanistically disconnected privileged class.

Roger Ebert gave this film four out of four stars and wrote, “…a meditative, delicate film… a good movie, from a masterful novel”. This is a touching and deeply disturbing film that I would challenge anyone to watch and not shed at least one tear.

"Lucky's Clinic" Promo Trailer

After creating a Sales Poster for Ashley Park and Tim McGrath, they asked me to create this promo trailer for their independently-produced TV Pilot "Lucky's Clinic". They needed a quick, funny sales tool for marketing their project, and they were delighted with the result. In addition to producing the spot, I created the graphics, edited the piece itself, wrote the copy and voiced the narration.

NOTE: Please contact me if you would like to privately view the trailer since the client has requested that it not be released to the public at this time.

Anti News "Saturn's Rings" Parody (Full Episode)

I created this visual effect shot for a friend's parody newscast, the Anti News dealing with the until-recently top secret information that Saturn's rings are made of Earth's garbage (this portion starts at approximately 01:41).  Originally, I was just going to use Cassini spacecraft imagery for Saturn, but the snap-zoom into the rings wasn't good enough, so I created a 3D Saturn to make the zoom transition better (This is an update from the previous post showing the graphic in context to the episode).
