Death Note

Main On End
Working alongside Ben O’Meara and the team at Deva Studios we set out to capture the gory playfulness of the Death Note world. Driven by exploration, this project was hands down one of my favorites as of late. Half practical half CG the Main on End was a science experiment gone right. Full of burning, melting and troubleshooting, and I am not talking about the computers.

Process ︎


Everything from the highly detailed Death Note book, to Ryuk’s headpiece. Working closely with the prop department, we captured a library of the films iconic characters. I was in charge of working as an adaptive camera department, functioning as Gaffer, Grip and focus puller. My second responsibility was creating a series of motion backgrounds for the individual credits. Each background was crafted in 3d space for maximum control of textures and lighting.
