AMC spot on Boards

Check out the AMC spot I worked on. It was a lot of work but it came out really well. I did the animation on the shot with the rack-focus, lots of flowers, and the first man eating orchid. I was responsible for all of the flowers, the vines, the fireflies, and the trees....pretty much everything that is moving.

Down time.

Rachel, Caleb, and I took a nice rest at the state park today. I really enjoyed fishing and relaxing as we watched the sunset. Times like this are very important for me to have. A lot of people here in the city get caught up in themselves and work, but it can be so refreshing to get out into the open air and enjoy the things around us every once in a while.

P.S. I caught a catfish!

Webosaurs Vignettes

Here are some shorts that the animators here at Reel FX have directed in the last few months. We have seen them go from simple scripts to full blown high quality renders. I think they have really turned out well.

Here are the first two, there will be 4 more to follow!

Open Season 2 screening

Tonight was a very special night for me, being the first time I've ever seen my animation on the big screen in the theater. Reel FX rented out a studio movie grill and I got to take Rachel, Caleb, and my mom to see Open Season 2. Rachel had already seen the movie, but this was the first time my mom saw it. It was very gratifying to hear the laughter of her and the other people in the theater (especially the kids). After seeing it so many times myself, I have difficulty seeing the parts that are supposed to be funny... all I am really able to see are the mistakes I made. I think this will always be something I will have to live with no matter what I work on. Don't worry though, I still saw all the great things about the movie too. It looked like Roger the cat stole the show, so maybe Open Season 3 will be all about him.

Os3 could be the prequel that shows all about how Roger came to lose his memory. Coming from an abusive home, he was forced to live outside and was eventually hit by a car...thus the deformities in his back. Young Stanley, on his way to Pet Paradiso as a kitten, found Roger and snuck him back onto his RV, nursing him back to good health. They go on to have many adventures until he gradually loses his memories. Stanley thought it would be easier to leave him to live his life in the wild again, only to visit him when he stops for visits at Pet Paradiso...

Well, maybe not.

Open Season 2 Trailer!

This is the first trailer for Open Season 2, available also on the Reel FX website. I've got a couple of shots in here but don't blink or you will miss them.

I have the shot where there are about 8 or 9 dogs circling around Mr. Weenie sniffing him. The other one is a quick shot of Mr. Weenie running away from Fifi and Rufus.

Animation test

I've started a little animation test tonight, and also posted it up on CGtalk. The bulk of what is said will probably happen on the forums, but I will post the vids here too. :)
