Nexon Releases Zombie Game


Finally a Facebook game that is actually a game. Nexon will be releasing a zombie-themed tower defense game shortly. I love combing live-action and 2D animation and this spot was a great opportunity to do that. It’s pretty fun too. Watch it!

More Combat Arms Shorts


Back in June, it was my turn to direct the newest Combat Arms shorts. We shot three over the weekend. The First, “Name Callin'” is embedded above. The other two should release in the future (initiially within episodes of Blabberbox). These were fun to do and I look forward to seeing them hit the internet. Below are some production stills care of Kirill Popov. (or you can look through more photos on Facebook).

MapleStory Introduces Three New Character Classes


MapleStory is one of the world’s most popular free-to-play online games. When it came time to advertise a new set of character classes, Nexon’s creative video maven, Luis Reyes, challenged us to take a different approach than just unleashing some flashy animation (although that’s certainly cool too!)

So… what if these new characters had to actually audition for the job? How would they handle the casting process? Hilarity ensues. And violence. Make that hilarious violence. And a giant walking robot.
