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

This is great, I got to animate the one spot EVERYONE on planet earth despises and can not wait to skip; the ad before Youtube videos. I will say no more.

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."

I keep getting lucky

I feel so lucky my career's been mostly comprised of "long format" commercial work, short films, and TV pitches. That type of work offers me so much freedom and allows me to express and contribute so much more to the entire body of work compared to feature film animation. Who the hell likes to be a little cog a big loud machine!
Here's the latest long commercial spot I had the pleasure of working on for Cineplex. 
The studio responsible for this work is Hornet Inc. located in New York city. 

 

And here's a little look behind the scenes.
