It`s interesting how common problems can sometimes stop things which would otherwise hardly change. For example the dates of execution in USA prisons. These are going into longer delays as the system has a lack of the lethal drug for the injection. Now the administration is looking for an importer from Europe, but lot of countries started boycott. UK has actually legal restriction on exporting this drug.

There`s new rigger in town! And he actually came from Prague :) Martin Ruizl has recently started in Prime Focus in London film division to work on their new project. Here is a link to his website and demoreel (really nice biped and facial setup, plus a cool vehicle rig):

so I have found there is this really cool google map, but for searching CG studios. Isn`t that genius? I still couldn`t find lot of them in Prague, but it might get better. Below is a screengrab of London Soho, with about 44 studios :) And this is not the final number. Nowhere else in the world is such a high density of computer animation/postproduction houses as there :)
When you`re looking for a job, this can definitely help. Still lot of studios are missing there, but it`s quite easy if you know there is a studio missing, just use ADD STUDIO button and fill in the information about it (they do some check before it`s actually added).

this is a deformer plugin I made to test hermite curve interpolation. Using a single target and inbetween in this prototype. Plugin is scripted (python API). In this example I wanted to show the curve, so the jaw moves a bit more forward then usual. There is also a simple polyCube example.

Posted again Making Of Tron video, as the user removed this from public acces on vimeo. This is link to youtube now. Courtesy of Digital Domain (they probably used their tools from Benjamin Button for digital Jeff Bridges and from Speed Racer for all the cool bike racing fx).
here is a trailer for Mr.Choco, a short film about a kitchen chief and a charming lady. My friend Petr Marek finally finished this and also published his personal website with his animation work.
