"Rio" Visual Development (Part 1)
As Blue Sky's "Rio" has now been released i am aloud to share some of the visual development i did for the film back in 2007.
I have loads to go through and will get round to posting lots more as soon as i have more time.
I wanted to share some of my artwork now, as i have been receiving lots of wonderful messages from people who have seen the film and wanted to congratulate me for my contribution to it.
Some of my you may know, that i co-directed a short film "Favelados" (which is also set in Rio) back in 2007. After completing Favelados, Carlos Saldanha (The director of Rio) hired me as an environmental designer to mainly focus on the visual style of the shanty town and market.
It was an amazing opportunity and fantastic experience working with Carlos and the rest of the team at Blue Sky.
I am very happy to see the film finally complete. It looks incredible and it was an honor to be a part of it.
I must say a massive thank you to Carlos for hiring me, and wanting to work with me and also thanks to all the amazingly talented artists at Blue Sky for their incredible hard work and their kind support.
I'll be posting some more of my work for Rio in the near future as well as my finished Edward Scissor Hands tribute piece for Gallery Nucleus and more!
Thanks again to every one who gets in touch and for all the fantastic support.
