So I've decided to go the world building route. Looks like there's more job opportunities there than anywhere at the moment, so I figured it would be wise as a career.
Michael Mercer's Environment Showreel Mar 2010 from Michael Mercer on Vimeo.
The portfolio blog moved to http://michaelmercerenvironment.blogspot.com.
And here's a few of the new things I've been working on...got several more on the way!!
PS - if you visit my environment portfolio, you'll get to see some of my textures for Pajama Gladiator I did back in 2007 as a sophomore...unfortunately not all of them made it into the film as there were some props that just got discarded, and I lost the files a long time ago. I'm not sure anyone but the director and producer knows I did these textures because there was no one on campus that summer. Have a great day! Best of luck to everyone in their job hunts!
