This is the final for my animation course through Animation Mentor.com. The music and sound were done by . Muchos thanks to him for doing all that. Uhm I haven't much else to say... I'm sick of looking at it. D< I'm glad it's done.

Please note that I had a very short time limit of 30-60 seconds to fit my story into so I had to cut a lot of ideas out. I also had a short amount time allotted to me to finish this film, three months, so some of the animation is a bit rougher than I would have liked.
Edit: Not sure why it's stretched in 4:3, but in any case, you can view it in HD here: [link] c:
So, you guys get to meet Oscar for real! I'm not sure why I waited a year to post this thing, other than I'm not as proud of it as I was a year ago. But hey, I took nearly a year to do it, why not post it here! (Plus, the access to posting films here takes so much time to acquire!)
Animated short produced entirely by me at Cégep du Vieux Montréal in 2010. The the pre-production to the touch-ups, the short took roughly 10 months to create; the rough animation and cleans were done traditionally in less than two months.
This short won Best Artistic Direction of the year 2010
Music was make on volunteer basis by a musician (Alex Boucher) assigned to my project, pretty much like everyone else in my class ;D
This is my diploma, a final project for college that I've finished back in 2007 (2 years I've spent in that college). The college is: Театрально-художественный колледж №60 (бывш. Лицей 333, 2005-2007 годы обучения)
The composer of the film, Danman87 made restoration of the image. Changed colours, added "motion blur" and more.
We had only 3 months to do our own animated film. I was the director, animator, and etc. I made half of this cartoon on animation paper, and half of it in Macromedia Flash 05 (with mouse and sometimes tablet). It's fully coloured
This wonderful music is composed by
Anyway, please enjoy my first fully completed work!
An Eskimo hunter sets out to the stormy blizzards of the snowy mountains in search for a pray to hunt. The hunter stumbles upon an unlikely Prey, an egg that just hatched out of the snow and mistakes the hunter for it's mother. But when the angry Yetti notices what's happening, the hunter shortly becomes the hunted and finds himself in need of assistance from his former Prey.

Yet again, I got the wonderful opportunity to work alongside one of the gifted music majors from USC over the winter on an original score for Birds of a Feather.
For my most beloved animated film, I worked alongside David Stanton for an original score for the animation. I couldn't be more pleased with our collaboration; the end result is a completely original film that is now ready for film festivals! Well, next year, perhaps. :3 Things are a little too busy at the moment.
I animated this short over the course of 11 weeks last summer using Macromedia Flash 8. Guh. . . that was my 8th quarter. . .eh, so long ago! Good times.
My Junior Thesis from Fall 2007 Semester. I worked hard on this lil guy. There are still lots of mistakes in it, and I plan to go back and fix them some time over the summer to make it festival worthy (maaaybee? i figure trying is better than not, even if they arent big festivals)
All the animation, sound, compositing, etc done by myself. Voiced by the lovely and Classmate Jonathan Schneck as narrator. Enjoy
An ancient castle, crumbling and overgrown, is home to strange animal-like people.
This was my classical film made in 4 months, during my time at Vancouver Film School. All of the animation was hand drawn, and inked with a crowquill pen.
I decided to make it somewhat in the style of a movie trailer because I wanted to get across the style, emotions, and feelings of a much larger story condensed into a short time period... It's a story I've been working with for a long time, and this felt like a good opportunity to get it animated.
Well... I haven't had much luck with submitting this to festivals, and I finished this back in March, so I figured it's about time I caved and shared it with you all. I'd still like to try submitting it to some festivals next year if I could, but.
Anyway, this is my film from senior year of college. I started working on the story in my second semester of Junior year, did most of the animation in the first semester of Senior year, and got about half of the clean-up done by the end of Senior year. After I graduated I spent the summer finishing the clean-up and the layouts, and I finished most of the color in a couple weeks earlier this spring. Almost all the work on this film was done by myself. It was no small task to be sure! A lot of people are surprised at the amount of work that goes into animation. The fastest I was able to work on this project as about a second of rough animation an hour. This is for only one character in the scene. Many of the scenes had 2-5 characters in them! Clean-up took twice as long as rough animation, then color, etc.
The story is actually inspired by an event in my own life, and represents a lot of my own feelings about being an artist and being in-between childhood and adulthood.
Anyway, enjoy! My goal for the film was to create something that anyone could understand or relate to in some way, and I hope I have accomplished that if nothing else.
EDIT: Wow that was fast, thanks for the Daily Deviation!! I am serious, nothing means more to me than that people are seeing and enjoying the film. Thank you very much for all your kind words and sharing your thoughts with me. I'm really glad you guys like the film.
My senior film from SCAD, finished back in November 07.
I don't know much of what to say about this. It's taken over 400 hours of work, over the course of three school quarters and a summer. It's the largest artistic endeavor I've ever undertaken.
Animated, cleaned, and colored completely with Flash. I did all the animation, layout, most of the cleanup, and some of the coloring. My friend Spot helped with cleanup, and my sister =fyuvix helped with cleanup and more than half the coloring.
... Hope you like it.
