Historic Video Series – Logan Utah Temple (1884)

The longest, and possibly most complex video I have ever released. This temple model represents the Logan Temple as it probably looked in 1884 when it was dedicated. This model features the interior rooms of the original temple. These rooms have since been removed during a renovation in the 1970s. I had a good time… read more »

Historic Video Series – St. George Utah Temple (1883-1887)

This is the second historic variation of the St. George Utah Temple, and it features the first appearance of the new, taller, spire for the temple. The Lightning Myth Much has been said about how the spire came to be, and the stories are, more often than not, wrong. Tradition holds that Brigham Young hated… read more »

Renovation for the Hong Kong China Temple (2022)

Well, here you have it: This weeks video is the planned renovation for the Hong Kong China Temple. I have a prior post on the differences between the current renovation and the prior temple design. Enjoy the new video!

First draft video for Moses Lake Washington

Most of this, especially the side windows and the back window, are just guesswork. This one went fairly quick, compared to some of the others I have worked on recently, This design is small, and fairly simple, and I really like it. Alternate embed for YT errors:

First Draft Video for the Tooele Valley Utah Temple

First draft video for Brasilia Brazil Temple

Well, the Brasilia Brazil Temple is the last temple I needed to model to catch up with the Church. Personally, I expect things will get harder to keep up with once conference is over, so I was happy to be able to say I at least caught up!

First video for Auckland New Zealand Temple

I finished a first attempt at modeling Auckland New Zealand. Now I only have one more temple to go before I cam caught back up to the Church (at least in regard to officially released renders!) I fully expect my attempt to keep up with all the temples to become significantly harder this coming conference… read more »

Alabang Philippines Temple video

I have another video for you today, my first draft for Alabang Philippines. I have 2 more temples to be caught up to the Church again, which I am hoping to be able to do before General Conference. Enjoy the new video!

Phnom Pehn Cambodia Temple video

You may have already seen the official render for the Phnom Pehn Cambodia Temple, released a couple of months ago. You may not have noticed a couple of unusual details on the already unusual temple design. The first thing I noticed is that the render does not show the front door. This makes it difficult… read more »

Angel Moroni and the Earthquake

As many of you who read this may know, a couple years back I wrote a book on the history of the Angel Moroni Statues called Know Your Moroni: A Fieldguide to Angel Moroni Statues. What you might not know, is I that I am working on a complete and total re write. This re… read more »
