Short animation that was going to be about corruption but due to deadlines, the underlying story isn't evident and it's way too short. XD Regardless, it took me somewhere over 20-30 hours. Anything above that is beyond my comprehension time-wise but easily possible. D:
Music is by Ugress (duty free! [link] GO LISTEN THEY'RE AWESOME!)
All frames (400+) drawn in Corel Painter IX and put together in iMovie 6 LOL. -lame-
Note: I advise a download. ): Because deviantart is causing frames to skip every so oftenI'm not sure if this is just my computer freezing it up or not, but if it looks a little wonky, it's either freezing or... it being wonky already LOL. >_>
My Grad film!!! We were finally allowed to put it online! I was lead character animator/clean up and director! Working with MJT, who was lead effects animator/clean-up and director and gillianimation, who was in charge of the Backgrounds, an animator, producer and director. Check out the film blog on [link]
This video tries to show that even though most of my works have a gloomy athmosphere, im a very happy and positive person. So i tried to create once again this gloomy mood but added a little happy-spin at the end. The video's other purpose was to try out trapcode form, and to use big panorama photos as base of animation. Made it with : After Effects with Trapcode Form plugin Sony Vegas Reason
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 figured that at least for the time being, i would upload my MFA Thesis film for you folks. I was looking into film festivals and such (and still am), and found them to be to expensive and time consuming at the moment.
But i want people to see the film, so here you go.
This is the result of 3 years of tedious work and generous help. Hope you enjoy it.
Feel free to link to it and share it, but PLEASE do not sell it. Its mine, and only I do the selling around here.
**This edition of Pandora's Book for DA's Film Gallery**
I got the wonderful opportunity to work alongside Michelle Toh from USC on an original score for Pandora's book over the winter. I couldn't be more pleased with our collaberation; the end result is a completely original film that is now ready for film festivals!
I animated this short over the course of 8 weeks last spring using Macromedia Flash 8. Guh. . . that was back in 7th quarter! Good times.
**This edition of Scalawags for DA's Film Gallery Premiere**
We had the wonderful opportunity to work alongside a handful of talented graduating music majors from USC the past winter, and as a result Scalawags now has its own beautiful score composed by David Stanton. This makes Scalawags a completely original piece, ready for film festivals!
From concept to completion this project took us 11 weeks to produce. We spent four weeks in pre-production and five weeks animating and compositing. One week at the end to enjoy our pizza and watch the movie. . . .And maybe do some post audio work.
***Please visit our journal for more information regarding the production, and learn what software and techniques were used in the creation of this film.***
for slashTHREE, 30th century This is my first motion and very experimental, it is collaboration with & Direction:me Conceptualization: me Illustration: me Animation: myaka Character Illustration: myaka Sound: neo
It started off with my concept, which i based off a dream in which I felt like i was dying ( i have these weird lucid dreams) I layed it out to myaka, and using the dream as the entire storyline we came up with this :
At start there is a storm, a boy (me) falls into the water in water and feels like hes dying. he awakes, Thanks God it was only a nightmare. Panting, he hurries down stairs, After a few seconds we realize this boy lives in future world. And when he goes outside he comes to the realization that reality is even has become a thousand times worth then his nightmare EVERYTHING dies, and a dark, decrepit tree as a main symbol of it( trees are used as symbols of life) . So the boy realizes that in his nightmare he could die and wake up, but here there is no waking up, his tear-drop symbolizes hope, because there is always hope, but it so small this time Also this tear-drop symbolize that humans can actually save situation, but not in future, we must act now. Hence the title 'the reprieve of humanity, this boys tear'
software: c4d, photoshop, illustrator, after effects. This is my first motion, but not my last ! portfolio coming soon
