The character models for "The Bookworm". These are pretty much created directly from the character designs.
"Narwhal Love" 2D Short
This is a short that was hand drawn by me in Flash. It will receive more refinement and eventually color work, but I like the “sketchiness” of it. No audio.
Stoopid Buddy Stop-motion Production Puppets
These are just some of the puppets that I have created for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios' various properties. In most cases, the costumes (if applicable) were made by the Costume Department and the sculpts were either pre-existing or made by Digital, unless noted otherwise.
In The Park
I entirely created this stop-motion short from pre-production through finish. I created all models and miniatures, animation, ect.

Lighting, Texture and Layout: Study Scene
A progression through my work on a Study Scene. This work was done primarily in Autodesk Maya utilizing Mental Ray.
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!
