Great review of Roko's Basilisk

Great review of Roko's Basilisk. Captures why I wrote it, to tell a ghost story for gen-internet. One that, should we create advanced AI, could be true!

Summoning your own savior is not for the faint of heart.

Short story cover reveal

Here they are... The covers for my pair of short stories / novellas about Roko Kasun, a genius AI programmer and the consequences he faces by being the architect of a super-intelligent machine mind.

Both are 0.99$ on Amazon Kindle or free if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited. Click here for the link to Basilisk. The link to Labyrinth is also now live: Labyrinth

Each story is its own little twilight-zone style contained episode. You really don't need to read one, then the other. But you can. And you should!

Hit me up on twitter and let me know what you thought. Take me to Michael's Twitter Page, Now!

MockingJay 2 VFX breakdown

Here is the breakdowns (behind the scenes) for the work we did at The Embassy for MockingJay 2.

Work in progress cover

This is for a short story I'll be publishing soon. It's the first of (at least) 2 stories about the rise of AI, and how it effects the people close to the event.

Nissan Commercial for the SuperBowl

Here is a Nissan Canada commercial we did for the Super Bowl.

It was a lot of fun to work on and the team did a great job with the rock monsters and mud monsters. I hope we get more work like this in the future.

I've been quiet on here for the last little while. It was a busy end of year 2015 and that took my focus off my writing for a bit. I'm getting back into my two short stories I've been trying to finish and will hopefully have them all finished in the next month or two. Everything takes longer than I usually.

The first of the two sorts is basically done. It's the second that needs another big pass of editing to polish it up.

I worked on three big projects at work in 2015. Mocking Jay part 2, Disney Playmation, and the 5th wave. I learned a lot on all three and still feel incredibly fortunate that my job is to create fantastic images that tell stories on the big screen (Or small screen in the case of Playmation). But we approach advertising weather its on the web or TV with the same passion we do with our film work.
