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.

VFX Samples Stoopid Buddy Stoodios
A selection of some of the best work I did for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios on their VFX team for their various stop-motion and puppet shows and spots. Breakdown below. More un-aired samples are available upon request.
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!
