Third Year Film

Here's my third year group film!

It was super fun, and we were one of the few groups who essentially went through the whole year without any inter-personal issues.

For those interested in what I animated, the most notable shots would be the opening shot of the rabbit, the two kids looking at the clouds as the camera rotates, the squid exploding the train, the robot deflecting lighting, and the main clouds blowing away all the dark clouds (lets try to not get into the intricacies and politics of the cloud world and why certain clouds are sentient and others aren't). I wish I was able to animate more, but I was also the head of animation for the project, and so my time was largely spent assisting others.

I was mostly found animating on this film, but my biggest responsibility outside of that was cloud character design. Below you'll find some of the vis dev and character design I was responsible for.

Chef Animation Test

Here's something I debated on including in my reel for the summer of 2014, but decided against it. Either way I think it would be nice for it to see the light of day in all of its poorly rendered glory.

So once again, it's been a while. This summer has been a very interesting one for me, as I was given the incredible opportunity to work on my first feature film, while still being able to return to my fourth year at school this September.

I was fortunate enough to be animating on Hotel Transylvania 2 at SPI, where I interned during the summer of my first year at school. It seemed fitting that my first internship gave way to my first real job. Obviously I'm not able to share any of the work I contributed quite yet, but be sure to see it in theaters this September! I'll be sure to post my (small) contributions to the film as soon as I'm able.

As far as my third year film, my group and I are involved in several smaller festivals and are waiting on the OK to put the film online. Stay tuned!

Third Year Preview

So I'm saving the majority of my third year related stuff for when the thing is done this April, but until then here's a bit of exploratory work I did. Both of these are radically different takes on how our film (about clouds) could look.

Action Analysis

This is my third year action analysis. I really don't have anything else to say to make this make any sense. All I will say is that the screams are from a goat.

Stop Motion

If my terrible memory serves, there were only 3 stop motion assignments for the semester. The first one was boring, so here are the second two!
