This is my final project from one of my matchmoving classes. I shot this footage at my friends’ apartment and then tracked the footage using PFTrack. I then imported the footage and tracking data into Maya where I added the geometry and nParticles falling down the stairs.
Not only the title of this video (which I’ve been meaning to post for the last 4 months), but “Wasteland” also describes my website for the last 9 months… To briefly catch you up, it’s been an awesome last 9 months that have kept me really busy. School is going really well and this video is one I did for my compositing class in the Spring 2013 semester. Back in March I also started an amazing new job as a Video Specialist at Sledgehammer Games. If you want to know more about what I’ve been up to, just ask and hopefully I’ll have time to post more on my website to fill you in.
A little about this video:
That’s my beautiful wife roaming through the wasteland. I shot her in front of a green screen and then assembled the whole scene myself in After Effects, Maya, and Blender.

This is my final project for my animation and visual effects class at the Academy of Art University. I had never touched Maya a few months ago and I’m really happy with how far I’ve come. There is still so much to learn!
Everything created by me in Maya and composited in After Effects.
