Animator, Cartoonist, and a Killer of All Things with 6 or More Legs
Animation Demo Reel 2014
My 2014 demo reel featuring work I've created throughout the year. All animations were created, written, and directed by me.
List of work: 1, Not Kansas: gouache cutout (no joints) 2. It Came From Down Below: stopmotion 3. Morphing Skulls: pencil 4. Nothing At All: acrylic paint 5. Crevice: Photoshop and Flash 6. Lurking Beneath: Maya
A short cutout animation of a lost toy robot.
The animation is painted in gouache and instead of using a jointed character, the robot is free form and is animated with subtle changes of his individual parts under a camera.
This animation was featured in Exposé's Human + Computer Exhibition 2014
The first animation is a quick test in Flash of an environment I drew for fun. I might explore this some more later. It's still in its rough draft. No sound.
The second animation is a quick Maya environment, camera, and lighting test. Environment based off of a sketch I drew recently about a lurking sea monster and an unsuspecting fisherman. No sound.
Lurking Beneath (Maya Test)
A couple of my favorite shots from my film final last semester.
For this project, I was limited with my one actress and tried to take advantage of that by exploring the different uses of film as a medium, mostly scratching on film and double exposure. In the film, there is a simple double narrative of two characters going to the mail room where finally in the end, we realize it's the same person and she comes in contact with herself. The film was shot on a Bolex with 16mm film and the soundtrack is the distorted songs of layered crickets. Enjoy!
