The VFX Arsenal Now Available!

My textbook, The VFX Arsenal: VFX Solutions for the Independent Filmmaker is now available!

This book comes from my classes in digital film-making, computer and motion graphics, and collects classic visual effects techniques and collects them in one place, demonstrated in commonly available software (such as After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Combustion, and Photoshop). Full of step-by-step tutorials, color images, and a DVD with lessons and tutorial elements, I think it is a great learning tool. A long time in the works, I'm so glad to see it completed, and available to the public.

Thanks to the folks at Focal for publishing this book, I hope everyone who is kind enough to buy it enjoys it.
