TRAILER: SyFy’s ‘Tasmanian Devils’

A movie I animated on premieres… today!

Danica McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years,” breaks out the big guns and fights wild beasts in the new SyFy film “Tasmanian Devils.” Directed by Zach Lipovsky, who was a finalist on Steven Spielberg‘s 2007 Fox TV series, searching for the next great filmmaker, to make it On The Lot.

  “Six daredevil friends break the rules and BASE jump into a remote area of Tasmania – where legendary creatures protect the land.”

(I had a ton of fun animating on the film)

  Enjoy the trailer!

Behind the Scenes: SyFy’s TASMANIAN DEVILS

  “Six daredevil friends break the rules and BASE jump into a remote area of Tasmania – where legendary creatures protect the land.”

   I recently completed some CG-Creature-Animation on a upcoming SyFy Channel creature-feature movie called Tasmanian Devils, starring Danica McKellar (aka Winnie Cooper) and Kenneth Mitchell, directed by Zach Lipovsky.  Here is a look at some behind-the-scenes footage of the live-action shoot… Enjoy the videos…

Tasmanian Devils BTS – Day 9:  Behind the scenes with Danica McKellar.

Tasmanian Devils BTS – Day 10:  Exploding a helicopter on the set of Tasmanian Devils

Tasmanian Devils BTS – Day 14:  Blood explosion into a helicopter on the set of Tasmanian Devils.   You know it’s going to be good when the call is “3… 2… 1… Splat!”

Tasmanian Devils BTS – Day 15:  A closer look at one of the visual effects shots from Syfy‘s Tasmanian Devils.  In this shot Roger Cross is pulled out of a helicopter, while pulling the camera back to create the illusion of him falling out. All shot in slow-motion.

So needless to say… there will be some explosions, and all of our heroes may not quite survive to the end.  Of course all this footage will be amped up in post-production, composited, CG creatures added, and color corrected.  I look forward to seeing how it all turns out.

Starring Cast:
… and a bunch of giant-mutant-Tasmanian Devils  ^__^
