Animation

Over the years, I've been fortunate and thankful to have had the opportunity to create animation in a variety of different styles. I have enjoyed the creative challenges that each style brings to the production process. It has allowed me to grow as an artist and animator. Here are a few video samples of the different types of animation I've created for movies, episodic series, advertising, educational content, music videos, explainer videos, and PSAs. 

Spy Optic Happy Series - A spot created for Spy Optic sunglasses. I designed and animated all of the characters and props and provided all of the character compositing.

The Little Rascals Save the Day - I had the pleasure of animating the title sequence for the film. I designed and animated all of the characters, BGs, and props. Directed by Mark Simon and Alex Zamm. Contracted through A&S Animation and Universal Studios. All Copyright Universal Studios.

Axe Cop S2 - I had the opportunity to create some  special poses  for season 2 of Axe Cop to aid in key animation. Copyright Fox Broadcasting Company

NFP, B2B, B2C Videos - I've also animated many videos for commerce, like this one for Epipheo and their client, Medici.

FTC spots - Here's one in a series of award winning spots I animated for FTC - in collaboration with John Lemmon Films and the Brandon Agency.

OUYA Spot - This "edgier" spot was created in a style similar to Superjail. I created the character and BG designs and provided some of the key poses for animation. Contracted through Mightypants Media and directed by Tony Grillo.

Protect Don't Infect - I created all of the characters, BGs, and animation for this award winning PSA. It was comissioned by the Orange County Health Dept. to bring awareness to the importance of certain hygene practices to prevent the spread of germs. It's a combination of animation and live action segments. Contracted through A&S Animation and Omni Productions.
