My wife and partner Kristen Hollinsworth is a pilates teacher and a modern dancer from New York City – today based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
One of the highlights of 2019 was definitely the work I’ve done for The Artery NYC on the one and only Queen Bey’s movie about her journey to the legendary Coachella performance.
You can follow the link below to the trailer, and watch the movie on Netflix, and you’ll see my name in the credits next to names of some fantastic artists I got to share days (and nights) with for the duration of the show.
Promax on today’s daily brief had an amazing write-up about the great Eurovision project that has put together 20+ artists together. A video like no other, the work organized by The Artery NYC provided a rare opportunity to collaborate with a fantastic international crew of artists.

I helped bring Stevie Wonder’s and Ariana Grande collaboration on song “Faith” to life. I had another opportunity to supervise the amazing MPC’s VFX team and work on solving the creative task of bringing Alan Bibby’s vision to life. The animation was loosely based on the famous “Muto” animation by Blu and we had to achieve the similar wall-paint effect for the outdoor animations. Then, in 2D, using camera tracks, we put together a treatment for the interior shots where the animated animals from “Sing”, the blockbuster movie out in theaters now were rotoscoped out of the provided footage and composited into the environment using the magic of spotlights.
Amazing team by the MPC team, yet again! Enjoy the song!
Slipped my mind completely, but my collaboration with Ulf Johansson through MPC New York was on the cover of Advertising Age back in the day when Puppymonkeybaby happened . (Superbowl 50 – 2016). What a ride it was. Look around the website to find the spot. Four manic weeks of working till the wee hours payed off with the weirdest ad to hit Superbowl ever.
MPC has in 2016 provided VFX for a number of Super Bowl spots, and I have a mention in the article on CGW.
The go-to portal of the Nuke artists world-wide has published my article on compositing practices.
A while back I made this Nuke tutorial that still gets a lot of views on YouTube. It’s about a not-so-often used functionality of the software.
