A breakdown of one of my favorite shots on the film I got to work on. Sam and Barry learn to communicate. Shot breakdown, boards, video reference, blocking and final animation. With these astounding storyboards by Kris Pearn, 90% of the work was done. I just had to not mess it up. Thanks to everyone who helped on the shot! SAAASPA!!!

Cloudy 2 is out!

I spent 5 glorious months animating on this fantastically funny film, and encourage anyone who likes silly animation and goofy or uber cute characters (as you can see below) to go enjoy it themselves. The few months since leaving Sony have been spent doing freelance, enjoying an amazing summer in Vancouver, and catching up on some important video games, like The Last of Us, an equally amazing project I am very sorry not to have been part of. But luckily I was part of this crazy Cloudy film! Huge thanks goes out to all the awesome peeps and the sups and leads that helped me make these shots what they are; Hugo, John, Josh, Tim, Kevin, Alan, Pete, Bianca, Brandon, Avner, IT and everyone else who gave great advice and reference.

Back in Vancouver

Back in beautiful Vancouver working on Cloudy 2 since Feb. The movie is hilarious and has been a joy to be part of. I got some boarding in since it was still the dead of winter when I returned, but now spring is upon us here, so time to strap on the hiking shoes.

Was able to spend a few days in Stockholm to visit friends (thanks Anna and Micheal!) and I got to see several of my AM students from past classes! And even visit Marie and Juan at Easy Studios. What a great city, will have to return in the summer some day. Brr...

My 3 months in Australia is now over. It was an fantastic time working with the cool people at Iloura, Mags, Nick, Matt, Elana, etc. And the best part was exploring the coast with Ilana; from the 12 Apostles to the Great Barrier Reef, Brisbane, Sydney and Tasmania. What a gigantic wonderful country filled with crazy creatures. Can't wait to go back someday!

Ilana has a Koala sighting!
