How we made a full size walking robot costume for Our RoboCop Remake – Scene 9! Watch the laughs, struggles, and triumphs as Dave and James attempt their craziest project ever. Enjoy!
For this ejection seat explosion, we used fluid simulation to create computer-generated smoke and fire. Normally we try to use actual explosion footage, but this required very specific timing, shape choreography, as well as high interaction with the moving van. The final simulation took 8 hours to calculate, and each frame took 2 hours to render.
James, the Director of Photography, shot on anamorphic lenses and graded in 4K, making this our first project finished in Ultra-High Definition. Ghostlight also removed Adam’s front tooth using Visual Effects, which involved animating and replacing his tongue and lower teeth. Produced by Brian Dillingham. Makeup by Salette Corpuz. Music by Alfred Montejano. Thanks everybody!
See more stuff we did with Adam Ray!

This is the last video Dave directed for Disney, which promotes the new Winnie The Pooh movie! Dave, along with fellow DigiSynd employees, made a bunch of watercolor paintings, which were scanned into the computer. Dave arranged them in 3D space, choreographed the text and animated the camera movement. It gets pretty zany at the end, so enjoy!
See Dave’s first Pooh Watercolor video!
Dave directed this video for the new Winnie The Pooh movie. Dave and James animated dialogue from the classic 1977 Disney film The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh. Dave painted using real watercolors, scanned them into the computer, positioned the text, and animated 3D camera movement. Enjoy!
Because of its popularity, Dave got to make a second Pooh Watercolor video!
Break.com asked us to make this short horror film to promote Saw 3D. Click the image to watch our 2D version. To watch in 3D, click here and go to “Scar3d”. Break.com wanted something where an exterminator is killed by traps. Dave wrote and directed. James was the Director of Photography. No time for 3D VFX, so we did it all in-camera.
WARNING: this is really violent and bloody!
