Invasion: North Rim Grand Canyon
Shot on location at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon July 2012. While I would like to imagine I witnessed this creature setting up shop in the middle of the breathtaking view, it was slightly less mundane as I hiked a trail down into the canyon. CGI post effects rendered using Luxology's Modo (now The Foundry) and Photoshop. Incidentally, the North Rim requires about 3 hours of additional driving to reach and there's NOTHING there except a lodge and amazing views. But if you want to spend the night, view the unimaginably beautiful stars from the the patio of the lodge and wake up to the sun rising on the canyon... not to mention a COMPLETE lack of the madness of crowds you get on the south side. It's worth it.
