Tinpo Aired!

Today marks the first time I have seen my own work on television!! This morning CBS aired several 30 second shorts during the "kewlopolis" kid's block. The characters are called Tinpo and are being sold by UNKL toys. They are small collectors item toys and come in various sizes. The different designs are very clever as are the shorts. Basically these little guys overcome strange situations in very abstract ways.

Here is the episode I had the honor to animate. I also did the short bit at the end where Frekpo jumps across the logo.

To conclude it all...I would like to congratulate all of the RFX apprentices that worked on this project....this marks (in my opinion), our biggest professional accomplishment to date.

If you would like to see the rest of the episodes...and there are 10 total...then be sure to watch CBS on Saturday mornings from 7am. They are included in the "kewlopolis" childrens block and are aired with Strawberry Shortcake, Cake, Care Bears, Horseland, and Trollz.

Until next time!

Apprentice check-in

Hey everybody, just a check-in here. Everything has been really going great here at Reel FX. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. Right now we 7 apprentices are at the 5 month mark. The 8th apprentice, Yi-Ming, has another month or two left after us. So, with only 1 month left I am really trying to shine here as best as I can!
