This is a very short, loose collection of things done in Maya 3D Dynamics. The character model and animation in the first clothing shot were provided by The Spine and is courtesy of the NFBC. The basic truck model, island and head model in the hair shot were obtained from TurboSquid.

Stoopid Buddy Animations
This is a collection of the stop-motion animations I did while learning from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.
Selected and screened at The Roseville Animation Festival (2012) and the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival (2012)! This is a short animation made by myself and two other students at DePaul University. We were going for a "paper cutout" look for the style, but it was actually made in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects and edited in Premiere. Our team was so small, we all had a hand in pretty much everything at one point or another, but we gave ourselves a little credit for the main tasks. Hope you enjoy it!
