  • Transformers 4: Chicago becomes Hong Kong

    Tuesday, Sep 24, 2013 5:18PM / Standard Entry

    Or "Kong Hong" as they had the characters reversed on somethings.  It took the Chinese actors on set to point that out!   lol

    Transformers Age of Extinction rolled into town and I have been busy as hell.   Add to the 5 other shows shooting in Chicago, and I am feeling it but loving every minute of it.  Due to agreements I have signed I really can't say anything about it except for the fact that I have worked on it.  I will say this, it was one of the most physically demanding things I have done so far but it's also probably the most fun I've had on a movie set yet.

    There is parts of the movie that take place in HK but they are using locations here and in Detroit for them.  Not exactly sure what is next for them but they are coming there next after filming wraps here.  Hopefully HK is ready!!!

    Some of the HK sets

    Then there's this place

    And it wouldn't be a Michael Bay movie with out this...

    I'll post a follow up next year when it comes out but I will be sad when filming ends in a few weeks.   Hopefully some AnDers get on when it comes there next month!!


  • Dhoom : 3 Motion Poster Release

    Thursday, Aug 15, 2013 10:25AM / Standard Entry

    Last fall I got the chance to work on big Bollywood production called Dhoom 3.  It is one of India's highest grossing film series ever.  I had a real blast working on it and had 2 small scenes working with Aamir Khan.  The film was mostly shot in Chicago and it comes out around Christmas.

  • Hired on to direct short films based on the Persona game series!

    Monday, Aug 12, 2013 9:52AM / Standard Entry

    One big thing that has me super excited is  I've been hired to direct several live action short films based on the video game series from Japan.   These are really low budget fan films which we are hoping to expand maybe into a larger project.   I did some minor assistant directing before  and did a small industrial so this is my first big directing project.

    Right now I'm having a lot of fun designing the character looks and feel of the world.  The writer sent me a bible on the world. I'm also replaying the games to get a better handle on the world.   If you aren't familiar, the Shin Megami Tensei and Persona games are mainly rpg based and deal with dark occult themes.  The first part will be a Velvet Room scene with Igor.    I'll post some of the sketches on here in the upcoming weeks,


  • Hello again everyone!!!

    Monday, Aug 12, 2013 9:44AM / Standard Entry

    It's been ages since I've been on here.   Last year was a really rough year for me emotionally and it took me a long time to recover, still not as bad as the events that caused me to leave Hong Kong but right up there.

    The year started out great but took a downturn mid way through.  I had to bury two good friends of mine, a childhood  one and one from after high school.   I also had a break in and most of my possessions related to film work were stolen.  My laptop and back up drive were also stolen.  I lost tons of pics from over the years, including lots of my film work ones.   I lost most of the films I worked on including some signed copies of thing by the other actors I worked with.  Also gone was 70% of my novel which was there and one the back up.  I've only recovered some chapters which were in emails but that's it.

    Despite my state I did work on a few projects and that really helped,   I'll have to update some posts on things I've worked on recently.  I'm ok now and looking forward to the future and a busy fall for the new tv season plus Transformers 4 is coming to Chicago next week.

    Hope everyone is doing good and having success with their projects and business!!
