Young CG Arnold – Terminator Genisys

It is great that I can finally share with you how we did the CG version of young Arnold Schwarzenegger for Terminator Genisys here at MPC.

I’ve seen tons of articles about it so instead of me explaining it I.m going to post the links to all the sites I’ve come across so far, mainly to make sure I don’t tell too much ;).

First of all here is a featurette on Arnie vs Arnie.




And a Young Arnie Making-Of:




Second, here are the links to some other Lead Artists on the team:

A very early Test Screening review of Alfonso Cuaron’s GRAVITY! Surprise, it is described as ‘next level’!!!

This is what aintitcool.com has to say about the early screening of Gravity! So proud of this team amazing work!

Some quotes:
“Gravity is a fucking masterpiece.”

“This is not just next level shit, this is several levels ahead of next level shit, & quite possibly the highest level shit you could possibly make.”

“It’s beautiful, and awe-inspiring, and profound (and a little scary too), everything you thought it would be since you first thought about going to space when you were a kid.”

“It has some of the best uses of first person POV shots I’ve ever seen, making you feel like you too are hovering right over the Earth, so close yet so far away.”

“Sandra Bullock’s character has no family down on Earth. No friends. Her job is up in space. She’s struggling to get back to survive, but in truth, she doesn’t have much to live for down on that planet, so why even go through the effort? To me the film is about apathy and isolation. It’s about people today not knowing why they should be excited about living but only knowing they don’t want to die.”

“This cut still gets my ultra-rare 11 out of 10 rating though, & it can only go up after I see the 100% completed version.  Congratulations Mr.Cuaron, you sir have changed the game.”

I joined Framestore!

Almost 3 months late but here it goes!

Since late February I’m a Rigger at Framestore-CFC. I’ve been really busy between the new job and London so I haven’t been able to write a decent entry on the blog until now.

It’s been 3 months now and I feel like I can fairly say that so far it’s even better than I expected. I’m working in some really cool projects, that I’m not sure if I can’t talk about them or not, so I won’t do it… for now… 😉  and surrounded by this amazing and at the same time frightening REALLY talented people.

I just hope to take the best I can from this new exciting experience and do my best!

That’s all for now… Jose out…
