FULL FILM HERE:[link] password: thesis **Be sure to watch it in HD!**
Because the copyright to my film is owned by USC, I am not allowed to host more than 10% of the film on DeviantART.
If you would like to watch the complete film, it's hosted on Vimeo and password-protected. For a limited time, I'm providing the password here in my DA description, so I don't get overly swarmed with notes in the next two days.
If you didn't click on the link above, here it is again!!
I want to give a special thanks to for helping me through almost all the backgrounds of this. I could not have finished in time without her help, and everything she's done means the world to me.
I'm so glad to finally have some free time again. I was often working 17 - 20 hour days on this animation for months on end. I tallied up the hours for just my summer alone, and I totalled 740 hours. Since the end of May, that's over 29 straight days of 24 hours each, in the span of 2.25 months, NOT including all of my hours working with my composers and my sound designer, and all the rendering that I've had to do over the course of the summer. Animation is a lot, lot, lot of work. But it's -SO- rewarding in the end. And, hopefully, I can crack a laugh out of you guys in the process : )
A Cake for Cherry is my senior thesis at Emily Carr University of Art and Design (2011) and my very first film.
I've never spent so much time on a project before. Took me 8 months from start to finish. Loads of blood and sweat went into this project. It was a huge learning experience and I literally went crazy (and paranoid)! XD There are a lot of things that I want to modify, change and improve in the film (like timing, pacing, shots, animation... etc.), but I did my best.
Even if I'm not truly satisfied with the outcome (there are a lot of things that I hate/love about it)... I have to move on and create new art!
Special Thanks to my family and friends for supporting me and helping me make this film possible! Without you guys, I don't think I would've survived.
Enough with my blabbering, hope you enjoy!!

A new project I finished recently... All the frames are hand-drawn. I made the animation in a minimalist way on purpose, It's meant to be a simple illustration for my music. I created the music and sound effects from A to Z using synths, my new Roland drum kit and Ableton Live. I'll post another short animation soon (Walking Lion) with more frames per second and I might start time-lapse projects as well in the near future. Thanks for watching...

**This edition of Birds of a Feather for DA's Film Gallery**
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.
this was part of a trailer that was never used for the show. Randy premiered sept 17th on Disney XD and its been animated by Boulder Animation in Ireland. it was all done in flash, hand drawn, no puppeting or symboles. I did the FX, chains, and clean up in this segment.
(sorry you cant dl this one incase of some copyright issues even its unused work.)
