Finally The artist gets a upload on Deviantart. The sequel, the Salaryman will be up on my youtube channel soon.
Check out the sequel, "The Salaryman" on youtube over at youtu.be/hjmJymlEH0Y


the life that most of us artist may have experienced...
this animation should not be taken seriously. its just a visual exaggeration of how some artist maybe facing in their life.

I'm abit concern on people who may misinterpret the ending but this is my reason to the suicide scene. Because I know that suicide is a very sensitive issue to some people.

Basically, 2 guns appear in the entire animation. the shotgun and the pistol.
and, both guns appear within the room of the boss's office.

in the first scene we see the boss shoot down the artist's quote. its basically a visual metaphor of the boss not agreeing to his quote. it didnt meant literally the boss did took out a shotgun and shot it above him.

so with that said, the 2nd time we see a weapon, the pistol also happen within the confines of the boss's office. the artist took it out from his folder and shot himself.

we may say this could be literal suicide, but in the context of the first scene where the boss took out his shotgun, this scene of suicide is again a "visual metaphor" for the artist after he realise how little hes paid for the project.

also to further solidify the aspect of this theory, the rest of the scenes the artist experience is pretty much normal and nothing out of the ordinary. it only happen within the boss's office.

I play it from my personal experience of visiting the client's domain of wild thoughts going through my mind, like how the client may not take my offer or I end up blowing my proposal, its the same when I return back to get an update from them or my paycheque from them. So visually, the 2 scenes that happen in the boss's office is more or less a visual metaphor of what went through inside the artist's mind at that moment.

hope it clears up.

Death comes to claim a little ghost girl. (He's not great with kids.)



Shadows is my senior film at MCAD, a one-person labor of love that took about a year to complete. It's a piece that draws on my own experiences in working with kids; how it can be both frustrating and fun.

A special thanks goes to my family for supporting me, my friends for encouraging me, my teachers for making me get my rear in gear, and the kids of cabin five for inspiring me. You guys are awesome.

Created with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects.

My graduating film from RMCAD 2013 - The Dollar Menu

Two best friends, a sheep and a dog, are poor and starving. So when a dollar floats by in the wind, best friends turn to enemies as the race for the dollar begins. The finish line: The Dollar Menu.

An experiment in disguising digital visual effects with analog techniques, A Flourishing Awakening presents a mythology depicting a fantastic fable of creation. Incorporating influences and inspiration from ancient creation myths, this modern folktale follows the footsteps of two Divine Creators and their journey in forging a new world. They represent the duality and balance that must be maintained in order for the universe to flourish. This dual nature echoes throughout the film as it harmonizes digital and analog. A Flourishing Awakening conveys a moral message to the audience emphasizing the importance of moderation. The fable resolves in a balancing of unbridled creative forces.

----------------------------------------------------------

This was my final thesis project at Parsons School of Design, and took over a year to complete. It is mixed media; incorporating both digital and analog animation. Please pay no mind to the large watermark, its unfortunate but necessary.

Sound: The sound was composed by me as well, using various royalty-free sound clips, the sources of which I credited at the end of the film.

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.

Enjoy~

This was my junior project. It's still not totally complete. It needs music still and a couple of the holds at the beginning are waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long. This ball can fly for freaking ever.
