Yet another new project


God I love this process, brain storming, bouncing ideas, story-boarding, coming up with gags...Prepro is simply the best part of any production and the lack of pre-production in my daily job is what makes me hate that job..pure amateur approach.
Well, to make up for it, my partner Christina Faulkner and myself decided to start this baby project, we called (operation freedom declaration). And here's a sneak peak of some of the art done by Christina.

First Full Commercial

So I finally got to animate a full fucking commercial, all by myself, and let me tell you, it is not fun. In theory it should have been good, but working with clients is simply, awful. It gives you no time to polish anything, lines and beats keep changing till the last minute, and flat out no vision..but it's watchable!!

Live-action Move

This is my very first live-action gig EVER!!!... I finally did it, and it's way tougher and harder than I thought, it put things into perspective. The video initially had an animated part (2D effects, and fun text) but due to the time constraints and the limited budget the client decided to skip on the animated part. If you're a coffee fanatic like I am then you might just like it.

ASIFA East Awards Night

One great night and some of the best animated work I've seen in a while, top it off with the very first ASIFA East Statuette. Ain't it cool?




With animators Dave Han and Nick Dubois


And with the one and only Joanna Davidovich and her husband.

Old Pencil Test

I did this while still at Moonbot Studios a couple of years back..It was meant to be a motion style test/whatever and I just thought I'd share it with you.

My very first try with DSLR film-making and Magic Lantern

For the last couple of months now I have been obsessing over live-action and DSLR camera's and all that jazz, and finally I wrapped my head around some gear and installed Magic Lantern on my Canon and here's the outcome....It is so fucking exciting (To me) and I can't wait to implement it in my next project.

Favorite Short

I came across this little gem. I hope you like it as much as I did. Just to clarify, I didn't work on this, it just popped up on my feed and I enjoyed it so much that I had to share.

Some traditional Pitch

If you didn't notice I wouldn't blame you, but Yahoo! underwent a "re-branding" process lately and they approached us and Pandapanther to help them bring this process to life. Each animator picked a font Yahoo chose for us and we needed to create short aninmated segments of the logo forming, dancing, running,..etc.
This is what I did in about 5 hours, and they didn't really like it "It wasn't slick looking, aka Flash and AffterEffects look", so I'm sharing it on my blog.

Skylanders

In my last post I shared the trailer of the game cinematic I have been working on for the last 7 months, and today I'm going to share a "sizzle reel" or highlight clips from the game. Unfortunately none of these shots are mine, leading the animation team was big enough responsibility for me so I hope you like it.

Latest Spot

For the last two months we, at Pandapanther, have been working on this long Skylanders spot. I was the animation director on the spot and quite honestly, this spot took a lot out of me, well, a lot out of all of us, so I hope you enjoy it.
