The Science of Hookah

The science behind setting up a hookah.

I just got a new slider, and wanted to test it out. Really, I just wanted an excuse to film my friends and I setting up a Hookah.

Filmed with the Canon EOS 7D, Canon 50mm f/1.4 and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lenses on Kessler Crane's Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly (Black Traveler Edition).

The Making of The Green Ruby Pumpkin

This is a small selection of some of the assets, and VFX created by Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma
for the short film "The Green Ruby Pumpkin" watch here: https://vimeo.com/51358765

The entire project was rendered on 7 computers, Running Maya for 3D, Mudbox for sculpting,
Mari and Mudbox for Texture Painting, Vray for rendering, Nuke for compositing. A lot of shortcuts had to be used in order to manage our render times Including 3d projections in nuke, miniatures, and practical elements.

The majority of the vfx work was just us two, however we had great help from friends on the rigging and animation side of things. We wanted to make sure everything you see on screen was designed and or fabricated by our team.

We learned a lot and hope to keep improving as storytellers and visual artists. Thank you for watching.

The Dogmatic

An overly-zealous animal rescue group takes the law into their own hands, while risking their own lives, to save jilted dogs by stealing them from abusive owners.
Prior to the making of this film, I initially intended to focus on a "simple" story of animal welfare. But sometimes things don't work out exactly as planned. Instead, I stumbled upon an even more intriguing story of societal neglect, economic despair, morality and self-fulfillment.

I recognize the controversy surrounding the issues presented in the film and have purposely left it to you, the viewer, to formulate your own opinion.
