LEGOs - Battleship

Many months ago I posted images of two LEGO models, based on board games, that I planned to build, Clue and The Settlers of Catan. I am now in the process of building the Clue board. Due to the expensive of LEGOs this will take some time. However I'm hopeful I can have it finished by Christmas. This got me thinking about what other games would translate well to LEGOs. I quickly realized Battleship would be perfect.

After some trail an error determining the scale to go for I can now present my take on Battleship with LEGOs.

Video - A Brief History of Time Travel

My first short film I made as a graduate film student. Filmed during the spring semester 2011. Starring Dudley May with special effects by Daniel May. We hope to expand this into a longer film in the near future.

Indiana Jones - Posters 2004 - 2007

Along with James Bond and Star Wars I'm also a huge fan of the Indiana Jones series. Since the release of "The Last Crusade" in 1989 rumors of a fourth film circulated for almost twenty years before the release of "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" in 2008. My posters were created in a four year period leading up to the release of the film. The challenge with Indiana Jones posters is trying to capture the look and feel of the posters created by the definitive Indiana Jones artist Drew Struzan. Here are my attempt to capture a bit of his magic.

I eventually plan to go back and make new posters for the series and look forward to the possibility of a fifth film.
