Well, I just finished up my latest visual effects shot. It is for IO9's and Trekmovie's joint Star Trek fake footage contest. Because of the amount of time required for modeling the saucer and shuttles, I actually finished this shot in under 24 hours from animation, rendering, to compositing.

For those not familiar with visual effects, that is a breakneck pace to finish a shot like that. It's not my best work, because of the severe time limit, I didn't have time to tweak it to perfection. I like it nonetheless, so I thought I'd post it. The winners of the contest will be announced Monday, April 7th. Wish me luck.

Here is my entry at YouTube...

Excellent work.

Congrats on the Win and on your previous work.

You should keep them coming!

You should so pieces that are always a bit ahead of the official trailers.

I know the guys from CBS-D watch the Trek Movie site- so it can't hurt!
Anyhow Good work!
