Oh my God, a Daily Deviation. You guys are fantastic, thank you so much!
"Monster Boy" is based in a world where humans carry invisible "monsters". These creatures are bound to their human hosts, and represent all that is negative about that person's personality: they are the manifestation of a problem that human current has in their life. They exist in a plane entirely seperate to reality, they cannot affect the real world, nor can they be seen or heard.
However, our main character (whose name seems to escape most) is sure that he's hearing voices. Soon enough, he discovers that these voices belong to his own monster, Vex, who has recently claimed the boy as his human host.
Naturally, the boy promptly panics, until he discovers that he is not alone. He soon meets two children that, like him, can see and interact with monsters: Viola and Chris. The story follows their relationship as they explore the idea of monsters, what they mean to humans, and what it is they really want.
Monster Boy is an animation project currently in the works at Bournemouth University. Thanks again to all those who helped me with this project! And to my animation team: I greatly look forward to working with you in October. c:

(I misspelt two people's names in the credits, my deepest apologies. I rendered a second version with the names corrected, but it seems that DA Film, much like YouTube, won't let me edit video files.)

This is the short movie me and two colleagues ( Anais Mallegol and Fabien Fallet ) realized for our graduation in the animation school Supinfocom in 2007.
The story is about a little gypsy family going from town to town in Italy. That short is a big mix of cuteness, warm colors and dreams ! It was a lot of fun to make and hopefully I'll have another chance at making short movies again sometime.
And thanks to Yan Volsy for the music score !

Here's the film that ~Ahvia and I have been working on since February. We made it for our 3rd year animation class at SVA in the second semester. And yes, Demos really lives up to his nickname in his cameo.
Thank you so much to those of you who helped us ink and color the scenes!

Gift of Ages is an animation I made in about a week and a half for my church's Christmas program.
Ah, there's so much to say about this one, but I somehow feel that explaining it will make it weaker. I should hope that the piece is strong enough to stand on its own without my having to prop it up with words.
And so for some of you I might have ruined Christmas. But to everyone else, I hope you've enjoyed this presentation and that it brings new meaning to the secular symbols we see annually.
Programs used: Flash 8, openCanvas, 3D Studio Max, and Sound Forge. All 3D work was done by my brother Brian (thanks!), and the music is Chopin's Etude in E major Op.10 No.3.
I present you my very first animated short, a year's worth of work. Ratchet's animated debut! Animated traditionally, worked on this on a full-time basis, i cant even begin to think how many hours went into it. Spending many hours in my room, in the dark with my light table haha. Was frustrating, but rewarding as well.
Im not a crazy animator or anything but im glad i was able to do what i wanted to do
I hope you all enjoy, i had a blast and cant wait to find the time to do another. Thank you to my wonderful classmates, teachers and to Ika for the wonderful music and for his constant support. Je taime!
