New Animation

Working on a new piece for my demo reel. My intention is to replace some of the older pieces over the next couple of months which no longer represent my abilities as an animator. So far this is just the bare bones blocking of poses. Any comments or critiques thus far?

Well, i've finally finished the animation of my short film!!! Hooray!!! I composited it all together but its all just playbasts at this point with a sprinkling of rendered scenes here and there. Its essentially a ruff cut of the shots with the music, no sound fx yet. Im going to take a week or two off and let my mind regroup, then come back and decide if theres any thing extra i want to add. The plan after that is to render over the break and put the film all together in January, when i have access to the schools programs again. Then after that its off to film festivals!

I was fortunate that the animation department head, Becky Wible Searles allowed me to spend this whole semester working on the character animation, rather than spending weeks worrying about the rendering. I was able to make a much better film this way and i truly appreciate it.

So in the meantime, check out my brand new website! I plan to update it as often as i can with new sketches and animations and definitely the short film sometime in February!
