Ultimate Survivor Alaska’s Interactive Maps
Recently, I had the tremendous opportunity at Neo-Pangea to refresh my hands at 3D sculpting and pseudo-realistic illustration. My poison of choice? Mudbox and Photoshop. I sculpted Alaska’s terrain for a new series on the National Geographic Channel – Ultimate Survivor Alaska. There are eleven maps in total and they live on their interactive website located here: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/ultimate-survival-alaska/interactives/interactive-map/
They upload a new map each week when a new episode airs (Sunday night) so stay tuned to see them all!
A Virus Named TOM + PS Vita = Holy Matrimony
A long awaited confirmation for my dreams to come true is here: A Virus Named TOM will be making its way onto the Playstation Vita later this year. I am utterly stoked for this as I own a Vita and can see our game just making perfect sense on the device. The amount of games out for the Vita is still rather slim (allbeit only in its second year of existence), so AVNT will be nothing short of a healthy addition to the device’s roster. In order to celebrate this madness, AVNT will be going on sale at 50% off for the entire 28th week of its run, (Feb 15th – 21st). So, if you haven’t already purchased the game, hop on over to avirusnamedtom.com or boot up your Steam software to grab a copy today.
Kuiper’s Sail – Silver ADDY Award
Great news everyone. My Senior project at Huntington University – Mourou’s first film, Kuiper’s Sail, has just won a Silver ADDY Award for Animation / Special Effects in the Fort Wayne, Indiana chapter of the American Advertising Federation. Super stoked about the award, but I wasn’t the only recipient. It seems Huntington University has brought in quite a bounty of awards this year – over a dozen! Congrats on all the students and their fine work. It’s great to see our little program gaining more and more recognition every year.
