2014 Projects

Posted by | Animation & VFX, Personal, Pixar, Speed Sculpts, Tutorials, Uncategorized | No Comments

2014 was a great year. I had a lot of fun making things with cool people. I backed off of sculpting for a bit to focus on directing and producing some live action short films. A group of friends and I collaborated on a 48 hour festival short film project called “This Boy,” and on two additional shorts called “Voice Memo No. 5” and “Reconnecting.” I’ve learned a lot throughout those little productions and hope to keep creating things in 2015!

MOJO is a comic book series created by Everett Downing, a former animator/story artist at Pixar and now a story artist at Dreamworks.

Hey all, I haven’t posted here in a bit, but I have taken on some small projects in my spare time.

Speed Sculpts: “Baseball Guy” and “Unicorn Ogre”

Posted by | Personal, Speed Sculpts | No Comments

I took a week off from sculpting and decided to do some speed sessions today as I warm back up. I took a more stylized approach to these two characters and had a lot of fun with it. The friendly baseball player was just a generic warmup, but the ‘Unicorn Ogre’ was created as part of the Daily Spit Sculpt’s (a sculpting group on Facebook) daily theme. Each of these sculpts took about 50 minutes. Thanks for checking them out!

Creative Closure: Gift (Short Film) + Previs

Posted by | Personal | No Comments

This is one of a few short film projects that Roxanne Paredes and I decided to film to get some more live-action experience. It has been a while since I’ve shot something, so I was dusting off the cobwebs with this piece for sure. Our friends, Rob Little and Brett Warne, volunteered to act in the short for us and we’re happy with what came together. That being said, we definitely learned a lot and I decided to make a post including some of the biggest take-aways from this project.
