Because work on the transformer short movie we were doing has currently ceased, I thought our internet viewers might be interested in seeing how it was looking.  So I decided to post one of our test clips, we filmed the road then put the computer model of our rig in, man the short movie would have been cool. 

 

>>>Warning, the rig does not transform.........Yet<<<

More bad news  :(

 

Rainbow Studios dissolved it's animation department today, so I currently find myself a animator-for-hire (as does Thuan who helped me on the VW clip).  This probably means the end of the short transformer movie we were doing.  If anyone knows a good job lead, go ahead and give me an email.

 

I will animate for food....

Bad news :(

 

In order for my Transformers clip to be on the DVD I have to have permission for use of the VW bug from Volkswagon.  So I emailed VW's marketing/public relations office at VW.com and they refuse to give me permission.

 

So my VW clip will not be on the Transformers DVD in America.  

 

Bummer.

Sweet....I got a email from the Transformers DVD people saying they would be interested in having the VW clip on the series 2 DVD in America.

BIG NEWS!!!!  I've finally got an image up in my 2DImages section!!!!  It's a pencil drawing that was scanned and painted by Adam Schimpf , you can check it out in my 2DImages section or click here.   As far as other drawings, all I can say is...

 

The 2D Images section is still being worked on.

 

I've been reading all the emails and replying to as many as I can.  I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to write me emails, reading them always makes my day every morning.

 

Thanks for visiting.

Oh.........my......... word.

 

Thanks to everyone that has visited the site!  Wednesday, of last week, I threw a web counter on my animation page, just for the heck of it, and it's recorded over 20,000 hits in one week!!!! Amazing!!!!  I have officially fallen behind on answering my emails (I try to answer every email).  It seems everyone loves that video of the VW bug we did in the parking lot.  It even made the headlines of CGChannel!   Due to it's popularity I'm working on a webpage that will be devoted to just the VW clip so check back soon.  Thanks to BigBot for posting the video first (BWTF was a close second).

 

Thank you Transformers fans (and thank you Hasbro for not taking legal action)!!!!

 

Oh and the 2D Images section is still being worked on.

           After years of saying I'm going to do one, I've finally launched my first ever website (although the 2D Images section is still being worked on)!!!  Of course now I'm totally bored of the design (I still like my buttons though), we'll see how long it takes me to change it.

 

Welcome and thanks for visiting!!!
