Freefall: QubaHQ VR004

Freefall: QubaHQ VR004


This short VR Experiment aims to replicate the sensation of finding yourself in a free-fall, lost in space. You are tumbling out of control in the orbit of our home planet, Earth. Best experienced using a high-quality head mounted display such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, GearVR or Google Cardboard. For more about the project as well as high-bitrate downloadable version, visit: http://qubahq.com/2015/10/freefall-vr004/

Prismatic: 360° VR Animation


Prismatic is my first independent project since I have left my position as Creative Director at Autofuss and Google a few weeks ago. It has begun its existence as a proof-of-concept animatic for a larger, practical set I am currently developing. Soon though, it took life on its own and became a self-standing animation I am happy to share with you today.

The Making of Prismatic


If you haven’t yet seen Prismatic, strap on your virtual reality goggles and go check it out here. The rest of the article will make much more sense this way. If you are already familiar with the work (or just came back after I sent you to check it out), welcome. In this article I’ll talk about the process behind creating as well as publishing Prismatic, as well as about some of the lessons learned along the way.

ChiChiLand Adventure: Player Walk Cycle


With the look of the character worked out, I begun the basic animation for the sprite. The ChiChiLand Adventure will use a mostly top-down perspective (slightly off vertical), popularized by many Nintendo titles such as Pokemon or Zelda (especially the handheld versions).
I wanted the character to have a cute, bold, slightly stumpy way of walking. Here's a first pass.

Rainy Window (Tutorial)


In this massive, 3-chapter tutorial you will learn how to create an After Effects scene with a realistic rain dripping down a window. In chapter 1 I explain the creation of the background plate - from a single photograph to an illusion of an alive city at night. In chapter 2 I walk you though the creation of rain simulation using Trapcode Particular. The final, 3rd chapter focuses on compositing these elements together to create the final look.

Dance Central 2: Dance 2gether (oldie!)


A few years ago, I have been commissioned by a LA-based production company g-NET to create a post-production look and set of tools for this Dance Central ad. I have completed the assignment and as a part of the process built a cool After Effects Expression for controlling the playback of videos on multiple layers. I will most likely make a tutorial for it as a part of QHQ Tutorials Season 2.

Nexus Q: Lights (cancelled)


You may remember a cool media device named Nexus Q created by Google in 2012 and subsequently removed from sale. At Autofuss we created quite a few pieces for the launch of the device that never ended seeing the light of day.

Here is a set of boards I created for one of the spots.
