Gravity wins big at the Oscars

I can’t say this was a complete surprise after the fantastic run Gravity’s had in the awards season, but winning an Oscar is still something else. Seeing our supervisor Tim Webber walking up there and accepting the award and becoming a part of an Oscar winning project feels a little surreal. Visual Effects was not the only award but only a part of an outstanding night for the film, which saw it take seven awards including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón, Best Cinematographer for Emmanuel Lubezki, Best Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing and Original Score.

What a fantastic ride! we worked extremely hard on it and now seeing it’s success makes all those long hours and late nights worthwhile. It is hard not to mention Alfonso Cuarón and his brilliant vision in bringing such gripping story to life and Tim Webber’s leadership in translating Alfonso’s vision into incredible images . Also I should mention the compositing supervision team; Mark Bakowski and Anthony Smith who were provided everyone with opportunities and support. To mark this occasion I’ve just launched my new VFX website at  http://vfx.samsalek.net.

Machine Era Wallet

LOND1046

It’s been 6 months since I got myself a new wallet! and I’ve been on the lookout for another interesting design, but it’s not easy to find innovation in this area. My current wallet is still functional and despite the loosened strap, still does a good job, and the one before; the paper SlimFold wallet no longer exists and has reached its’ fate; recycled. A few weeks ago I received a package that I was not expecting; inside there was a new wallet that I had completely forgotten about.

LOND1067Machine Era Wallet was a project I backed on Kickstarter last September. It’s a very simple wallet made of Aluminum or Brass depending on your choice. I wasn’t sure if the flat design could contain all my cards but thought this could be a could companion to my main wallet to provide quick access to the most essentials. I liked the minimalistic approach to the design and the idea of feeling something solid in your pocket so backed the cheaper Aluminum version for $28. In the few weeks of using it’s been exactly what I thought it would be and I only put most essential things on it. The lightness and built quality has made using it enjoyable and this little wallet has satisfied my new wallet cravings for the time being! until I discover the next good design!
