Under construction colour correction

I shot this footage of a construction site in Busan, South Korea in 2011. I then did some colour correction a fews years later by adding an Adjustment layer with a Curves (RGB channel and Red channel) and a Hue/Saturation (Reduce Master Saturation) Effect in After Effects. I also used the Stabilise Motion feature of Tracker to steady the hand held footage and try to anchor the orange window of the white building in the background to the viewers gaze.

The Epidermis Edit

I created the Epidermis Edit animation  in early 2000. The aesthetic is directly influenced by anatomy,  medical procedures,  macro-photography, electron microscopy and scientific inquiry. Back then, the Epidermis Edit animation was intended to be a realistic study in the movement and manipulation of the skin. A slightly surreal animation, but now it just seems confusing and weird. Unintended.

I used Blender 1.5 for all polygon modelling, animation, textures,  lighting and rendering. I used After Effects  to compile the animation, sound and credits, and then render the final output to AVI and Quicktime format.
