Brand new piece commissioned by the music artist epsilon-blue. I really enjoyed doing this piece, it's been such a long time since I did an animation that was strictly about animated typography. Originally I had only planned to spend three weeks getting this done in a very straight-forward way, but new ideas kept popping up, and epsilon-blue and I kept refining things, so that it took three months in the end.
Completely designed and animated in After Effects.

Learned a lot from this one, I think I succeeded to the quality I want for a few shots, but not every shot turn out the best, hopefully, on the next film for E-Depth Angel pilot I will be able to make every shot the best shots.
I'm the sole animator, layout artist, compositer on this film (which is probably why it's not pro quality yet, not the best on everything) X.X Next film will be better!
For the TEAM: (Big thank you time!) Animation is not a lone-sport, so here's spotlight to the team who helped out!
A suffering creature who is trapped within its vicinity unintentionally attracts the attention of an artistic boy.
Characters animated in Adobe Flash, backgrounds painted in Adobe Photoshop, everything compiled in After Effects.
Its been a very long time since I first mentioned Minty Marrows. But now its done!
This was my final year project which I did during my time at RMIT University. I experienced lots of stress and lack of sleep during this project, but at the same had lots of fun and learnt a lot doing it.
Anyone who has seen the test clip of Minty Marrows will realize how different it ended up. Hee hee.
Here's my first assignment for my independent study. I'm not completely happy with it because of the persistent geometry intersections on his fingers. I also think I might be imagining hitches on various places because sometimes they're there and sometimes they aren't. My prof. didn't see them either.
Here are all of the shots that I have renders for. Shot 1 is the rendered version of the redo playblast that's on my reel. As you can see, she bangs her head against an invisible wall in this version thanks to the frame that's been dropped. Pascal in the first shot and all of the characters in the rest of the shots were animated by me from scratch, except for the last shot. I only did Pascal in that one. Rapunzel and Flynn were animated by Ron Smith, I believe.
I have a bunch of other shots but they're tests and animation fixes so I wont be showing them.
Since Hop is out in the UK and purchase-able in the US via amazon, I figured it's safe to post my work from the show. Sadly, I only got to animate one shot. The others on my plate were either sent over to India or had to be taken over by another animator. The one shot I had is awesome though, so I'm very happy to have it.
Here is the short film "Hero" as I promised you. ^^ It's a short film I worked with Feltenstudentone. [link] It's officially an solo project for Felix Meissner, but we worked as an team on it. He modelled a bit part of the things, I made the slime-pudding-monster and animated a few things like the runcycle and the item presentations. Felten worked on the hero and he modelled and designed him, but he also animated a few scenes like the bummerang hit or pulling out the sword out of the ground. This project was very funny and I hope I can work more projects like this one. ^^
Oh yeah, before I forget it, hero was spoken from BakaPsychoNeko [link] and she was the perfect voice for him.^^ Thx again Bakaneko-chan *g*.
