This is a short piece of raw video from "Grandpa" followed by some production shots. This project is currently in post. More detailed information on the pre-production and puppet/prop construction can be viewed under my Works In Progress listing. If you are interested in the story, the animatic/story reel can be viewed under "Animatics and Storyboards" in my Portfolio.

I entirely created this stop-motion short from pre-production through finish. I created all models and miniatures, animation, ect.
Robot Chicken CG Hallway
This is a quick breakdown of a shot from the Robot Chicken Season 9 finale episode that I worked on. I did all the comp work, created the CG hallway in Blender and the parody 2D drawings in Photoshop (available on my 2D Work page) as well. No audio on this.
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!

"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.
