This is the second trip of my home made high altitude weather balloon photography project, Pacific Star.
The balloon launched at 5:37pm,PST from Oxnard, CA and reached an altitude of 124,176' snapping photos and recording video along the way.
At its apex, the balloon burst, a parachute deployed, and the payload floated down for 35 minutes, landing near an olive orchard Northeast of Santa Paula.

Rodeo FX was once again called upon to create exceptional environments and immersive 3D matte paintings. However, Rodeo's CG contributions were much larger than on any previous motion picture. In addition to environment work, ILM trusted Rodeo FX to create, simulate, and animate fully CG creatures and vehicles for a variety of sequences. Rodeo FX was also responsible for all the variations of the interior Robot Head shots, which included building and animating a complex CG rig used to control the actions and movements of the robots – a seamless photo-real blend of both CG and practical FX.

Imaginary Forces, the leading independent production company, has been nominated for three 2010 EMMY's for main title design: The Pacific, Nurse Jackie and Human Target.
For The Pacific our artists used the history of battlefield sketchers as inspiration, and hand drew the likenesses of the soldiers in the film to create a poetic and beautiful opening title sequence for this epic miniseries from HBO and Playtone.
In addition to the title sequence, we designed and animated maps within the miniseries as well as produced the epilogue to the series.

After years of seeing imagery of the lush green trails from the Pacific Northwest have overwhelming influence on the media and culture of mountain biking, we decided it was time to go experience the rich, dark loam of the coastal regions for ourselves. So in the spring, we dusted off our trail bikes, packed up the rig and headed north to see what we could find.

Labor Day weekend hurricane swells were very kind to many of the beaches around Orange County - especially Newport. Extremely warm water, sunshine, light offshore winds, and great waves made this weekend one for the books.
Footage is from Sunday and Monday early mornings (9/6 and 9/7).

The Pacific Northwest is a geographic region in western North America bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west and loosely by the Rocky Mountains on the east. The area has diverse geography covering volcanic mountain ranges, temperate rain forests, and of course coastal beaches. We crisscrossed Oregon and Washington trying to take it all in and this video shows some of the best scenes we captured in the summer of 2016.

The Radionuclide tests returned negative.
It's been almost a year since the launch of Pacific Star II. The whole time I had wondered how could I up the ante; throwing together a styrofoam box with some hacked cameras felt like it wouldn't suffice to the challenge I was looking for.
In mid December, I received a call from scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Department of Energy who asked if I could launch a Black Carbon experiment to test atmospheric levels of the pollutant. It was the perfect challenge I sought and together a symbiosis emerged that was able to open doors and gain access to things I normally would not be able to.
Launched from Ventura County, Pacific Star III traveled nearly 200 miles South, South-East, over the Eastern County line of Los Angeles and into the Mojave Desert.
Using a huge 3000g extreme cold weather sounding balloon I was able to go higher and farther than my previous attempts.
I wanted Pacific Star III to fly many months ago, but unfortunately, prevailing Santa Ana winds hampered any launch unless of course I was willing to take the chance that the payload would miraculously parachute from over 100,000 feet and land on Catalina Island off the coast of CA.
I plan and plan and plan and plan and plan and sometimes at the last moment the plans change as quickly as the wind changes directions.
After four scrubbed launches, it was a bit frustrating but anything worth doing usually is.
In the end, it's about the adventure of traveling down roads I've never been and never will travel down again while tracking the beast down and I smile to myself because I never know exactly where I'm headed. It's really all about the adventure and the challenge.
I want to thank everyone who has been supportive towards the Pacific Star series. For those of you who donated to the cause, this could not have happened without your support. Thank you so much!
Additionally I would like to thank Victor Gonzalez and

This was the animatic that won us the job. This has a few drawing I did that didn't make it into the final. There were 33 in all I think. It was a lot of fun to work on. Good to work with pencils and charcoal again. One of the last projects I worked on at Imaginary Forces. Thanks to: Lauren, Cara, Corey, Peter and all the animators that helped out with this. Gary Goetzman and Tony To really pushed us on this one, but for the best.

"Haz lo que te gusta/ Siente cada desafío/Construye tu camino" ese es el lema con el que trabajamos en Pacific and Co. Y así lo demostramos. Las montañas no son un obstáculo, sino un desafío, un reto diario.
