The FARM!

So... I got a render farm in my basement. 

Long story short. I was the Director of Animation at a company called the Material Group (an Interactive/Animation studio started in 2010). 3 years later It was bought out by a big marketing firm who later ended the experiment. They became owners of a render farm with no production artists to use it.

In 2014 I became a freelancer again. Knowing the farm would be collecting dust, I nagged the firm every 2-3 months about buying it. They finally agreed.

A few weeks ago I showed up at their office with a screw driver and a check book. Oh and Luca (My 4-year-old) to help me collect the screws. I Left with a truck load of render farm parts, or "JUNK" as Luca called it. I've been slowly getting it set up in my basement ever since. 

Here are some pics of the madness. 

It all connects to my home office upstairs. Temp freelance station on the left. 

Big Thanks to Sal Oceguera (electrical), Mike Moe (IT) and Marie Kelly (Dope chick) for making this all possible. 

Making Moves! :)

Finally developed the first two rolls of film I shot with my Canon AE-1 35mm camera. Using two lenses, a 50mm and a 70-210mm Macro zoom lens. I need to buy better film but its still a good first run. The contrast I get with the zoom lens is amazing. I love the car and flower shots the most.  

ITS LIVE!

OK it took a while to get my shit together but I'm finally done! The site is up and everything seems to be working... Now I have to spam everyone with links. 

I'm feeling pretty good about everything except for this pathetic looking blog. I need to fill it up with stuff so here is a pic of this new camera I snagged at a local garage sale. 

Shit just got REEL

Finally got my site up and running, DNS servers resolved and all that. I'm going to try the blog thing and see how it goes. I have no idea what the first post should be so I'm just rambling. I hope the new site doesn't annoy too man people with all the animated gifs.

If you dig the reel please share it around. I'm back in the freelance game and I'm looking for work :)
