Another Live-action gig.

Acting students approached me to shoot this little practice scene for them...kinda proud of it.

Another end of another era.

Today is my last day at Pandapanther, and while it is exciting to break free and try other things around the studios in New York City, it is a bit saddening to realize that over the span of three years this short project was the only thing that I actually loved working on, and the rest is, well, SHIT!


Enjoy.

From the old days of Morris Lessmore

While cleaning up one of my drives, I came across this thing and thought it's worth sharing.

Live Action Scene

Like many of you, deadlines and due dates get my blood pumping and make me a lot more productive, and that's why this month I decided to take a week off animating and other things to submit to the Monday Challenge organized by the guys at Film Riot. Here's my very first stab at live action story-telling, which turned out to be MUCH harder than promo work.

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.
