A SCANNER DARKLY

After a month-long audition with Richard Linklater's animation department in Austin TX, I joined the team of fifty animations to rotoscope the film using a proprietary interpolation animation software which created a hyper-realistic, nausea-inducing effect to emphasize the feeling of paranoia the film's characters were experiencing.

 

The bulk of my work involved scenes of Keanu Reeves' undercover cop character in his "scramble suit," which is a smart membrane that is constantly shifting the identity of the wearer with images and features of random people (yes, it's a metaphor). This film was a very enjoyable experience to help make.
