    Augmented Reality Project

    Project Xenon has started exploring the possibilities technology will provide us in the next 10 to 20 years. Our mission is to foresee how we will use new devices with augmented reality, and other technologies such as GPS data, biometric data, sound, video and computer graphics. After researching the possibilities for newer technologies, a video will be made to showcase the group’s vision of how we may use the technology of tomorrow.

    Concept Art

    One of the fun things about working on a film is getting to come up with the look and feel of it. Concept art is important in the early stages of filming because it enables everyone to get on the same page and envision what the film will look like in the end. I've gotten to create some really fun and interesting images on my current project. It deals with madness and is all about diving into the mind of someone who is delusional.
