Added a bunch of new transformer video links to my list of live action transformers on the internet. You can check 'em out on the VW transformer webpage.  I especially like the Devastator one that was done by just one fan, although the music starts to grate on you pretty quickly.  Don't miss the Nissan commercial in the Honarable Mentions section either, I think it's pretty sweet.  I'll hopefully be posting some of my own new animations soon.

Wanna see what I've been working on lately?  Run over to the Twisted Whiskers website and check out the video of Goosers Gets It (check out the Potty Animal animation that was done by a friend of mine too).  Goosers Gets It is one of six 30 second animated shorts I completed for American Greetings.  Hopefully they'll be releasing some of the other ones soon for viewing.

Switched hosting to one that won't change when I move so hopefully that's the end of the website going down for awhile.  I think it's all back online and running at this point.

Well I just moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles and switched from comcast to adelphia, so most of my website is offline.  I don't get as much webspace anymore so I'm going to have to figure out a different way to host my animations.  I'll hopefully have everything up and running again soon.  Now it's back to unpacking boxes for me!

Added a new animation to the website.  Click on the picture to go to my Animations Page where you can download it.  It's my third 10 sec club animation.  Thought I would try and loosen up the animation a bit by adding some squash and stretch to the acting.

Alright kind of a big update this time.  Added a few new animations to the website.

 

Click on the pictures to go to my Animations Page where you can download the new animations.

 

My second 10 sec club animation.  The sound clip is from Singing In the Rain which I just watched for the first time.  It made me want to go stomp around in puddles...again ;)

 

 

 

 

 

I did my first ever animation for the 10 sec club animation website.  The sound clip was from Raising Arizona and the character is a free model for use in learning animation.  You can download the character for you own animations here (you'll need Maya to animate him).

 

 

 

I realized my website was getting a little cartoon heavy so I figured I needed to add some more "realistic" video game animations.  I finally got around to rendering this work I did for Realm Interactive.  I think the game is cancelled now so this is the only place you can see these.  Too bad, the game was looking really cool

 

 

 

 

Added the portion of the "FX Break on Through" animation I did for Autonomy to my animation page.  A rare chance for me to texture and light as well as model and animate.

 

 

 

 

Also added a new video to my list of live action transformers on the internet. You can check it out on the VW transformer webpage right here.

Added a new video to my list of live action transformers on the internet.  It looks to be secret test footage from a transformer movie done by ILM, but apparently it's a hoax.  I can't wait to see the real stuff if it's indeed fake, cause it will be even more amazing if Industrial Light and Magic is working on it.  You can check it out on the VW transformer webpage right here.
