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.

More Stop-Motion and 2D Animation Tests
A grouping of my better miscellaneous non-CG animation work.
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!
