optix sent me to dubai for a month. i was setting up a working environment for 3d artists and made some visual effects for mesmer tea. also comes with the next reel.
the wachowski brothers are shooting their new film "ninja assassin" in berlin and the babelsberg studios. i went to work with pixomondo in babelsberg on some very bloody effects for the movie. our office was right between the different sets and it was not unusual to meet dozens of bleeding ninjas with throwing stars sticking in their back and a cup of coffee in their hand. unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos.
since february i worked with optix on several differnt projects. among other things i did a lot of fluid simulations for osram.
i will put it in the next reel.
