La Brea

Research & developement

A short stint in pre-production for NBC's La Brea series. I loved researching this show, which culminated in a full visual breakdown of some of the key vfx sequences. I had not come across suburban sinkholes before and what we uncovered was fascinating.

We also looked at lighting, tone, and some detailing on the kinds of breakage and disruption beneath broken city streets to share with vfx vendors at the briefing stage. A quick look at some of the fauna and flora of the world that's discovered before having to move on to another project.

As with all shows, I also touched on it's wider themes and did some very early dev on a main title and some early concept for a HUD system for its exploratory drone.
