2d Animation Studio - Final

Hey all (all that never see this anyway),
Here is the final for a short 'commercial' our team put together for one of our classes. i think it came out well, considering the circumstances in the class. It's kind of a recruitment advertisement representing animation at the art institute. we've got nothing but good feedback from everyone at school, which is really exciting! well, check it out, lemme know what you think!

Animatic for Asifa Competition

Ok, so the story is that a little girl wanders out of the house while her parents are fighting. she happens upon a grazing dragon, and in wonderment goes up to pet it. they become comfortable with each other and then take to the skies where the little girl feels free of her problems. up in the clouds she sees mystical things happen, like a pirate ship emerge from the clouds, and great big castle resting on white puffs, and a million fish go jumping by. eventually they land and enjoy the evening together, away from any worry or care.

Animatic for March

Here is our animatic for our march monthly, headed by myself.

Untitled from Drifting Eddy on Vimeo.
note: don't pay attention to characters popping or pausing, it's only a rough animatic.

The project is a cast of carnival performers who are well out of their prime, but still doing what they do. Preceding this scene is a young boy watching the show, disappointed in what he sees. Following this scene is, well, i can't give that away. The rest of the scene won't be animated until my turn again for our monthlies, unfortunately.

Music by Michael Lopez & Erik Griott.

Demo Reel

My demo reel, compiled in January 2008. This is a really crappy reel, thrown together in a week and a half (that's including all the animation except for one of them, which was done for a class). Yes, it is going to get fixed.

Drifting Eddy?

In short, what I live by. I am a rock in a river. The water flows around me as I roll downstream. It pushes me, and I push back.
