Machinima project - Art 381

Movie: Forrest Gump

We started developing our characters and choosing different locations to shoot the scenes in the clip. The first avatar we wanted to focus on was the star, Forrest Gump.

Climate Apocalypse! - Art 451

Will our world survive the effects of global warming? When pigs fly!

Well here they come soaring up and away from the land surface destruction we created through our own ignorant neglect.

Not just a saying anymore, this flying pig it is your rescuer from the melting ice caps, ghastly hurricanes, and scorching ground temperatures. So throw on some shades, enjoy a nice mojito, and enjoy the breeze flowing through your hair as your trusty winged farm animal takes you to the only place left after global climate apocalypse – up in the sky!
