Unreal Visual Effects Demo Reel (September 2011)

The player will show in this paragraph


The gatling gun was modeled and textured by Nick Kingsland, and the environment was created (from custom assets) by Brendan Muir. I added some Epic Games assets to fill in some parts as he wasn't showing everything in his demo. Unreal Tournament 3 was developed by Epic Games and published by Midway Games. The music is from the soundtrack of the first Unreal game.


UPDATES

September 14, 2011

Reel updated. Chopped some stuff, made the weather effects look better.

May 18, 2011

Reel updated. Added some new stuff and chopped out some of stuff that makes me wonder why I even bothered to put in there.
Also, I am making a cartoon called Afterworld. You can watch episodes 1 to 5 on YouTube, either censored or uncensored. Afterworld follows a group of ghosts on a journey in a strange world guided by a robot. Hikinks and pop culture references ensue.

Added Client Work to Gallery.

January 10, 2010

Rehauled the site a bit, took the Demo and Resume buttons out and dropped both the demo video and resume link to this page. Also made a new banner to better reflect what I am doing with Unreal. Updates will continue as normal here.

January 5, 2010

Fixed the muzzle flashes on the Assault Rifle (looks less cartoony and more firey), and now demo reel has updated footage of it. Also added some motion graphics stuff to the gallery.

October 7, 2009

OKAY! So it turns out my site for a while has been reported as an attack site. I contacted my provider and they said they removed whatever scripts was causing it, it was an iframe attack or something like that. I'm overwriting all my HTML files for this site.

September 3, 2009

Added an "in-progress" piece that was intended for my demo (before I switched to Unreal stuff), a Fume FX car bomb explosion. Non-Unreal video updates will be added to the Gallery.

September 2, 2009

Alien Blaster video added to its appropriate section..

August 31, 2009

This past weekend was Fan Expo, and I got to take a go at the new Bioware game, Dragon Age: Origins. Only played for a bit, but it was fun and the controls were easy to get used to. They are using their own engine for this game. I also got to try out a 3D monitor playing Call of Duty: World at War. When I aimed down the sight of my rifle, the gun was literally right in my face. Now, if I could only see Prototype on this monitor...
More importantly, I have a sneak peak at my latest weapon for UT3. I still have some work to do on it, but I do have some pretty pictures up.

August 25, 2009

Site has been updated with new video content, in a new section. Check out the Misc. Unreal Stuff section for more Unreal Engine stuff! I'll be adding a new Unreal weapon to the website soon, once I get the kinks worked out.

August 15, 2009

SIGGRAPH was great fun, met many great companies there. Working on new stuff, namely Kismet and Matinee. Will hopefully have something to show soon.

July 29, 2009

Flash Video stream version of demo added! It'll autoplay when you load the Demo Reel page, and it has music. Default setting should be at about half of max level though.

July 21, 2009

Site has been updated with glorious new content: new demo reel, galleries are finally up, resume is up and also my weapons and vehicle mod for UT3. Enjoy.

June 2009

Oh, right, I do have a website! Anyway, I'll hopefully have some cool stuff up real soon. I've been working on getting some assets into Unreal Tournament 3, as well as learning how to use Kismet and Matinee, creating cinematic style camera shots within the game... I'm quite happy with how things are turning out so far. Also working on some FX shots at the same time. I'll hopefully have my first test video up soon.

May 5, 2008 - Site Up!

Well I finally have a somewhat-workable site. I am building this by hand, since it was how I learned how to make web sites. Anyway, I'm hoping to have the gallery up soon. School finished recently and I really need to just relax for a bit.
