This is my online magazine for all the various projects involving visual effects I am currently involved in as they happen.
In addition to movie props/costumes or animation and digital compositing work, I'll occasionally post pics of my custom toys and minatures.

Detective Genaro Ortiz in Dark Knight suit.

A year ago I was contacted by a police detective in Newark New Jersey who is what you would call a celebrity Batman there in town who was interested in a suit upgrade. This guy suits up 5 days a week to entertain children for charity and to inspire them to lead a drug free life. He is the first Batman to work directly with a police department like the real Batman and even has his own Batmobile and trading cards! I've met a lot of guys who want to be a real Batman, and this guy is the closest I've ever seen! I was asked to upgrade his appearance with a Dark Knight suit as seen in the 2008 film. Here's some pics Detective Ortiz sent me of his first outing in the suit last weekend. This guy is truly an amazing piece of work, thanks Detective for all the work you are doing for the community under the mantle of the bat.
