A quick experiment in pixilation. After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Special thanks to my live shoot teammates/actors Joshua Tewell and Robert Greasham!

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.
This short vid is of a stumbling robot that was textured, lighted, basic rigged, animated and comp’ed by me onto a photographic background.
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!

Animation Parody Drawings for Robot Chicken CG Hallway
These are some custom animation parody drawings I did for a sketch in the Robot Chicken Season 9 finale. They are meant to be posters on the wall of a CG hallway I also created (viewable in my CG/3D Work portfolio page). Done completely in Photoshop.
"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.

This is some of the puppet production work I am doing on "Grandpa", my most recent short stop-motion work in progress.

I spent my summer studying both stop motion animation and character fabrication with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios in Burbank, CA!
3D Dynamics Experiments
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, island and head model in the hair shot were obtained from TurboSquid.
Character Animation with Dialogue
These pieces represent some of my character work with lip sync/dialogue. They were created with the Generi model/rig by Andrew Silke.
