An Audience with Alien: Isolation

An Audience with Alien: Isolation

The original Alien is an incredible film. Arguably the granddaddy of space horror, it took the 70's corporation paranoia into the black, littered flawed and earnest characters throughout a floating factory and gave birth - quite literally - to one of the most terrifying creatures in cinema history.

The Art of Oscar-Winning 3D Modelling

Cancer Research UK host Game Jam, the result? Genes in Space.

Superbowl Commercials - VFX wins!

I have intentionally waited until the afternoon to post this blog, so that all of you UK based sports fans that actually stayed awake to watch the coverage of the Superbowl last night, are now wide awake!
