The Monstrocity!

From July to the end of September I was employed as one of the four Quicktrack participants at Quickdraw Animation Society. We were hired to create an animation that functions as a loop and that will be projected onto the side of a building. These animations were to promote the GIRAF animation festival that Quickdraw holds every year.

My idea was to play with the scale of the projection and create a series of monsters that interact with each other. I was inspired by classic Japanese and American monster movies, urban legends and graffiti art. I wanted my animation to be playful, colorful and entertaining.

Production was fast and I found I had to work quick and come up with ideas on the spot. After I was finished production we sent out animations off to 6 Degrees sound studio. I was blown away by the amazing job they did.

The Monstrocity was eventually screened November 5th at the Jubilee Auditorium at the Log Drivers Waltz Gala. It was an amazing event. I felt honored to participate in this residency alongside so many talented people.

It has been awhile since I posted anything, so here is one of my line tests form a project that I have been working on for the past two months. I can't show you much more than this. The final animation will be done in November just in time for the GIRAF film festival.

Cartoon Concept

I forgot to post these. This is a concept for a cartoon revolving more around the teachers then the students. Each teacher has their individual personalities and motivations.

Grad Poster Test

Animating the graduation poster has been taking up all my time lately. The poster is designed by Euny Choi while Luke Callahan designed the sound. It looks and sounds great! I have a bunch of small hand drawn animations and here is one in color. I will post the finished poster once its done.

That Salamander Wood Shop Teacher

"Jeez! Mr. Baxter got blood all over my project again. He was going to show me how to use the radial arm saw but after cutting both his arms off he just hid in his office, sulking until they grew back."
"Yeah. You should have seen him when the Principal was was shouting at him for finding one of his thumbs in his coffee. Mr. Baxter's tail popped right off and he hid behind the wood plainer."

There's an elephant in the room.

Here is my final piece for the Market Mall Avant Garden contest. I changed the coloring to suit spring colors better. I also added some cute, little birds. I like how they look on their own. I may need to see what I can do with them.
