United States
I believe that SciFi makes the world a better place by helping people understand others who are different than themselves.

I’ve been a producer, director, and editor in film and broadcast TV for… well a long time. Watch a Discovery Channel show I co-produced and edited: Tank School!

Recently I produced Let’s Knit2gether, a pioneering online video series about knitting. My wife CAT was the host. The show became well known in the knitting world and ran for five years.

I met my wife in college. She was a Computer Scientist and I was a Filmmaker. Today film making is all about computers so now we’re basically in the same business.

I also speak at conferences about online video, social media, and TV/film production.


Who Are You?
This is an update of the first CGI image I ever completed in DAZ Studio.  Back then I didn't know how to do lighting so I moved the character into the lights that were already pre-built into the set.  This is the original:

around the corner by EricSusch 

It took me days to place the character properly and learn how to aim a camera and render.  The image is dark and I've grown to hate it as I've become more experienced.  And so, like George Lucas, I decided to go back and change my earlier work to add new characters and "make it better."

More on how I made this image on my blog:…

Frozen In the Life I've Chosen
I was testing out special snow shaders I purchased and decided to make an image of frozen pants.  Why?  Well, a fellow discreet logic – D/Vision editor from back in the day, Tom Grotting,  started a trend in Minnesota.  He freezes jeans and stands them up all over town.  It’s caught on in other places this winter.  Check it out.

In my image, special shaders called Let It Snow created the snow on the pants and the tops of the mountains.  It took a bit of fiddling but in the end it looks quite good, at least from a distance.  The shaders are added to an invisible shell around the object and if you look very close, especially along the edges, you can see the shell and the snow hovering above the object.  You can shrink the shell but that changes how the snow looks across the surface so it might be a bit of a compromise to get the right look.  I set the mountains in the background a bit out of focus which helps.  All in all though, the shaders work quite well.  What do you think?

Gimme Some Candy!!!
This is just a quickie I did for Halloween.  I followed SickleYield‘s demo for creating volumetric lighting in DAZ Studio’s Iray.  It’s the first time I’ve ever done an effect like this. What do you think?
