On Top of the World

I recently was asked to create a few elements for the most recent Imagine Dragons music video, “On Top of the World”.   This was a quick chaotic build to meet the deadline and have the props done for shooting day.  My biggest focus was creating a nearly full scale lunar lander for the video.  The concept was roughly based on the real Lunar Excursion Module or “LEM” built by NASA in the 60′s.   However, I was able to add my own details to the lander and make it fit a little more into my personal aesthetic and style.  Not to mention it was made almost entirely of found parts and shapes from around the studio.

Man in the Moon

This last year has been extremely busy with some big projects.   The biggest was being heavily involved in the creative process for the live event “Man in the Moon” which was held at USANA Amphitheater in Salt Lake City, Utah.   Not only was I lucky enough to be able to weigh in heavily on many of the creative aspects of the show as a creative director, but I was also given the responsibility of fabricating two HUGE animatronic robots.   The process of creating these two robots was no easy task. However, I was able pull it off and Kilroy and Klaus where a huge hit as part of the show.

“Props”

A new area of my art I have really wanted to put more time into is creating sets, and props.  This is my latest dive into the world of film.  Directed by my good friend Ben Mcphersen.  A great opportunity to create some fun stuff.

Adobe

I am currently in the final stages of fabricating a new rolling ball sculpture for Adobe’s new campus located in Lehi, Utah.  This has been a really fun, and different piece.  Here is a local write up about the project.
