Spare a Square




Finals come way too soon! Argh! would've liked another week to fix the last few bugs in it, but feel accomplished as it's my first maya animation and done in less than 3 months.

Big thank you to the crew! Juan, Sarat & Sol! And the music by Kevin Macleod. And another big thanks to the UCBUGG [University of California, Berkeley Undergraduate Graphics Group] Facilitators that helped us: Philip Ly, Ben Wu & Janel Drew! Already started developing my next project! Woot! Woot!

To Fetch a Snowman




This animated film explores the relationship between the abonible snowman, who wants nothing more than to play fetch, and a workaholic eskimo gathering sticks for firewood.

Done using construction paper, scissors, Adobe photoshop, Garageband and iMovie.

To Fetch a Snowman was made in 3 days for the Campus Movie Fest held at University of California, Berkeley.
The screening for films that are part of this festival will be held on September 23rd, 2011 at Wheeler Auditorium on the UC Berkeley campus in Berkeley, Ca.

Next time I do a film, I'll try and save enough time to add a making of.

Snow Throw Animation



I animated The Snow Throw with pencil, ink, watercolor and adobe photoshop.
I jumped at the chance to bring life to a little mischievous bear.

Wee Drunk Mouse by Alishea Gibson

Well, this was my final 2D animation for my Animation Principles class. Last night I had the honor of having Frank Gladstone, animator for DW/WD/Aardman/and more, take a look at it and tear me a new one. God bless him and his no-bones-about-it-way of giving it to you straight. I had Marco Merenghi of Sony Image Works review it and I did what he said before I turned it in. But Frank was, well, frank about how much more I should do to it. Best advice is always the hardest to hear. But now, i have a handful of ways to push this little mouse to the limits of his drunken film!
A big thanks to Frank Gladstone, Marco Merenghi and the AcmeAnimation.org for connecting us. I'll repost the revised version soon as I finish.
