Looking for "my thing"

A while ago I started thinking about putting out a periodic short animated vignettes that comically addresses adult subject matters. I know, groundbreaking! 
Here's my take on it, and hope it sticks.

Animation Nights New York

Hey readers.

Living in NYC offers no shortage of animation driven events to attend/submit your film. 
There's ASIFA East, The Animation Block Party, Rooftop films, and one of my favorite animation events the monthly Animation Nights New York. I love this event!
Last Thursday they hosted their "May Movies" night my short film included. 
The event is organized and curated by Yvonne Grzenkowicz  a New York based animator/ director.
Everything about that night was charming, from the venue itself to the tremendous attendance -as you can see here- to the amazing films line up. 
I highly recommend it. Here are some moments from the show.

24 in 24 #2.

This must be what it's like to watch an Arm Wrestling match on acid. We're up to 28 crazy animators this time around, and things got a bit weird. Enjoy.

24 in 24 #1.

Out of boredom I came up with this random idea: what if we give a bunch of animators 24 hours to animate a 24 frames ping pong shot? Sure enough, after bouncing the idea around and getting a positive response I created a set with two rigs and two cameras and... well, you get it. 
Here's 24 in 24 round #1

These things you can't wait to skip

2.5D Fanta

Fanta spots are a lot of fun to work on. They're usually CG spots animated and rendered to look traditional. We get to smear, exaggerate, and animate in on 2s and 4s. Here's a spot I got to layout and animate all by myself, MINUS THE EFFECTS!! They're usually done by a team of awesome traditional animators.

Yet Another Short Film.

Another indie short film is out this week and I had the opportunity to animate on it. I use the term "Animate" loosely here; I only animated the CG faces over the stop-motion plates, which in and of itself is a great experience. Animating on 2s, 4s and 6s forces you to think about EVERY pose you create. Here's "The Sea Is Blue."
