Fondling Oscar

One reason why I've been out of touch for a while (especially towards the end of last year) was that I was hard at work on the visual effects for a movie called The Curious Cast of Benjamin Button. The company that I work for, Digital Domain, was responsible for creating the completely digital, aged heads of Benjamin that you see during the entire first hour of the film. It was challenging, ground-breaking work, and last weekend it all paid off at the Academy Awards.

To the right is a photo of me holding one of the Oscars we brought home.

If only wargaming were this glamorous... ;-)

Thanks, Marc! I aspire to the level of artistry you bring to your maps, but I doubt I'll ever achieve it.

Congratulations. It's always cool to receive public recognition of your work.

Thanks! An Oscar is very solid, that's for sure. But it doesn't feel as heavy as a BAFTA award (we won that one too). Those suckers weigh a ton.

Superb but wargaming has a different and I believe better audience...despite my buddies Matt, Jim and I being involved in it!
