60 Moto G from J Dates on Vimeo.

At the time of this posting, the Youtube video was viewed 460k times! with over 3k likes!  Woah!

On the back of this, Motorola has asked for 2 additional :30 broadcast versions, as well as 4 :15 Youtube bumpers!!  ( the annoying commercials you skip at the beginning of the video you want to watch )

It's a great feeling to see how much traction the first project I've Directed for The Mill+ NY is getting!
Couldn't have done it without the best team I could have asked for!  Thanks guys! You made me look good.

The Man Who Couldn't Slow Down

Hennessy Beyond from J Dates on Vimeo.

So the Hennessy spot that was Directed by my friend Martin De Thurah is now online!
I served as VFX Supervisor for the Mill on set... and CG Supervisor in Post.  All the Dust Storm was created and rendered in Houdini.    The project was completed for Droga 5.

There is more Behind-The-Scenes about it on the Hennessy site... here:


So the Nordic TD Forum has the speakers up!  

I'm super excited and honored to be in such esteemed company!  Lets just hope I don't get exposed as the hack that I am.  I head out next week!  I'll be looking to update the blog with how it goes!  Stay tuned.
