Torchlight: Frontiers

Torchlight Frontiers combines the heart of the beloved Torchlight series with a shared, persistent and dynamically generated world.  I helped animate many of the characters in this announcement trailer, as well as more characters appearing in the game itself.  More details about my involvement will come after the game is released.

Darryl Isaacs Superbowl 2013 TV Spot

Popular Kentuckiana Lawyer Darryl Isaacs ran this ad during the 2013 Superbowl for the Louisville and Lexington markets.
I was the sole artist on this project and developed the concept, filmed Mr. Isaacs on Green Screen, and composited him into the 3D environment.
Maya and Mental Ray were used for the 3D. The Car Wreck was a complex combination of NCloth, Rigid Bodies, Lattice Deformations, and Hand-Animation. After Effects was used to composite the shot.

Black Mesa

Black Mesa is a modern re-imagining of the 20 year old videogame classic "Half-Life".  Starting out as a free fan-released "modification", Black Mesa became so popular that it was granted a retail license.  With 500,000+ copies sold on Steam to date and "Overwhelmingly Positive" reviews, it's been a massive success.
I've been Lead Animator on Black Mesa since the project's inception.  We are currently working on finishing the last 1/4th of the Single Player Campaign.

International Princess World VR Application

This fun little skit was hand-animated and rendered on an aggressive 3 week deadline.  A live stream of the audience on the exhibit floor is merged with these CG characters to make it appear like everyone shares the scene together.  Preset characters were provided, and I rigged and animated them in Maya.  V-Ray was used to render, After Effects was used for compositing.

About Me

My name’s Nate.  I’m a 3D Artist, Character Animator, and overall pretty cool guy.

I have a huge skillset that includes extensive experience with Maya, 3DS Max, After Effects, Photoshop, and Premiere.  But I specialize in Character Animation for both 3DS Max and Maya.

I’ve got experience with the complete CGI and Video Game pipeline, including Modeling, Texturing, Rigging, Animating, Rendering and Compositing.  That’s in addition to my traditional media experience such as video editing, sound editing and even voice acting.
