el reel nuevo de mago y amigo Adam Mada

About 2 months ago I went to see my friends Australian Magician Adam Mada, Susie and their young son Finn over in Buenos Aires. It was a great weekend. Adam handed me a disk with videos of his work as a magician and asked me to cut him a reel. Australian Magician Adam Mada returned to Australia with his family and I returned to Santiago and we worked together over various screen sharing sessions and produced his latest reel. Here it is:

vfx: cooler projects from the last 2 years here in Chile

I've been quite fortunate to have been able to work on some pretty cool projects since freelancing as a Nuke compositor in Santiago about 18 months ago. I realised I haven't shared much on here for too long so here is my start at posting some updates and other coolness.

feels.tv has been completely rebranded and hats off the the great work that they are doing. Whilst checking out the site I came across one of the projects I was involved with earlier this year for AFP Habitat.

Entel Campaña Institucional

This was a cool project working with Feels and the guys at Alaska films. Feels got me onboard to help out with the compositing side of things. We comped up a stadium, integrated cg balloons and extended a crowd amongst other things.

La Ruta del Vino

Not a comp job but a 1 hour mega project in which I was involved as videographer, editor, post producer amongst other things. We did this project at Orangutan and is really something I'm very proud of.

Ladybug Reveal Teaser

This was an idea that Juan Paulo at Leyenda had to help promote the business - there are some very talented dudes working over there in the world of animation.

Some of the cooler work we did at Orangutan this year.

fcpxImageExporter and my 5 minutes of coding fame

A little while ago at Orangutan we had a client ask us to export several hundred frames from a 1 hour video we had produced for them.

We worked in fcpx and manually exporting frames can be quite a task.

So I spent a late afternoon putting together a little app to read fcpxml and use it to export still images based on the markers we had put in the timeline.

I polished it a little more and shared it on the fcp.co forums and over the week the little app had been downloaded over 700 times.

It even got a nice review from Larry Jordan and several retweets from other fcpx pros like Richard Taylor and sites like premiumbeat.com. 

fcpxImageExporter is available over at Orangutan.

La Ruta del Vino

Here it is! Our latest project from Orangutan.

Back in March-April we went down to the Colchagua valley for a 2 week shoot for the Ruta del Vino exploring the process of producing, in my opinion, some of the most incredible wines on the planet.

The actual video is one hour long however we have made it available on YouTube as 6 episodes.

Join host Rodrigo Alcalde as he explores the wine, culture and people of this incredible part of the world!

noticias del huertito del balcón – albahaca y tomates

(in english y spanglish)

About 3 or so weeks ago we pruned/trimmed (i’m forgetting too many english words these days, and unfortunately my spanish isn’t getting much better!) the little branches/stems of the tomato plants to help them produce fruit (that’s the theory) y since a week ago the plants have started to have flowers!

And for many weeks we have been able to cook eggs with fresh basil!

Also something else mildly interesting is that our original box sucks up on average 7 watering cans’ worth of water (i’m guessing the can holds about 3L) a week!

Hace 3 semanas cortamos/podamos muchas de las ramas chicas de las plantas de tomates para ayudarlas a producir frutos (esa es la teoria) y desde hace una semana las plantas comenzaron a tener flores!

Y por muchas semanas he podido a cocinar huevos con albahaca fresca!

Y algo que es un poco interesante también es que nuestra caja original chupa como promedio 7 regaderas/latas de agua cada semana (y estimo que la regadera lleva 3 litros de agua)

Creo que es hora de construir mas cajas auto-regantes!

saturday morning cruise on the new bike

This morning I heading out on my new bicycle to explore Santiago.
After half an hour or so heading east from our place I ended up at a rodeo.

I’m not going to try to pretend that I understood the rules of the games that the Huasos were palying at a rodeo, but I’m guessing it was along the lines of what the Charros were doing when we were up in Zacatecas Mexico – with a system of scoring and heavy rivalry! Will get back there soon with a real camera and  try understand things a little better. Only thing I could see that was missing was the presence of micheladas!
