I’ve been working with water and particle simulation for some time now. It’s fascinating how computers software is able to mimic real world dynamics, and translate that to amazing visuals that sometimes wouldn’t be possible without the insane control of nodes, and rigid bodies. This was just a simple product test having the particles interact with a tabletop product. Still a work in progress, but shows potential in the amount of control that an operator has while simulating.
On December 2nd,2010 Asylum Artists held a Jazz night with Toronto Jazz Legend Archie Alleyne and his Evolution of Jazz Ensemble. Over the fall months we were busy producing, and developing a website for the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF). Through our efforts with the website, social media, and the jazz night we were able to help raise over $7000 for the fund, and help more underprivileged youth find a voice in the music community, and get the proper training that they need to get into post-secondary and to find their place in the world of music.
If you would like to help contribute to the fund visit www.aasf.ca for more information. Special thanks to all of our sponsors.
You can now purchase your tickets for the event being held on December 2nd, 2010 @ The Asylum 100 Carlaw Ave, Toronto, ON.
All of the proceeds from the event will be going to the AASF, to help ensure young musicians can get financial support and learn from some of the greats in Jazz music.
Without the Past… There is No Future…
The website for the AASF.ca will also be launching on December 2nd, 2010. We have been in production on the website since late August, and now are working with TA2 Sound + Music, and Xerogravity.net to finish off the post of the production, and develop the flash site for all of the amazing content we have been getting. Thanks to all the support of our sponsors, and all of those who have come down to the studio to talk about Archie.
I went out before most of the leaves were gone in Northern Ontario and shot some backplates and HDR spheres for cg car visualization.
There was a big rain storm two weeks ago, and since it wasn’t too cold I seized the opportunity to get some great backplates and hdr spheres with lots of light reflections, and ground details.

The studio has been working on a production about Toronto luthier Joe Yanuziello. Earlier this week Joe brought in his collection of stringed instruments for a product shoot. It was a pleasure to capture images of such beautiful works of art. Check out Joe’s website to view some of his other creations.
I’ve been working on a side project using MOGRAPH 2 to have objects fly in from outside of the web browser screen and land into a banner at the head of the page. The thing I’m trying to do differently is have the motion fly behind the page content. I’ve found it really annoying and frustrating when there is an expandable or rich media that is being intrusive and hard to close, when all you want to see is the latest news or content of a page. I will be finishing off the renders in the next couple of weeks, and should have an online version for people to try out. Enjoy the boards for now.
