Trailer for Ginevra

I have finished my first project using the multi-plane animation stand I built this Fall. The trailer for the short film Ginevra is now online. Based on Percy Shelley's poem "The Dirge", Ginevra depicts the aftermath of the murder of a young woman. As her distraught mother looks on, she learns that life after death involves a transition she never could have imagined. [more inside]

Girl With Pearl Earring

I worked on a video for Ted Ed, the educational branch of TED Talks. It’s about the Dutch Renaissance painter Jan Vermeer, and specifically, his painting The Girl with a Pearl Earring. It was created with frame by frame animation under the camera, some paint on glass animation, some Photoshop animation, and a lot of After Effects compositing. This blog post has a link to the video, stills, and behind the scenes shots.

I built a multi-plane animation stand

I’m really happy to finally finish a new multi-plane animation stand set up after two weeks of building, visiting hard ware stores, hunting for fabric and transporting heavy glass in a suitcase by bus. Link includes a time lapse video showing the building process, followed by detail shots with more information and a test shot inspired by Blade Runner.

Oh My

I am very happy to announce that the music video I was slaving away over in February and March has just come out! Made for The Animators, out of Melbourne, it features a chase through the snow, some magical realism, a very cute animal, and a whole lot of painted plastic cut-outs. I have some stills and 'making of' pictures on my blog.

Loop GIF inspired by The Shining

This animated GIF was created for the Loopdeloop competition, based in Australia. Each month there is a different theme, and this month’s was….sisters. I immediately thought of two sisters and two hotels: the twins from The Shining, perhaps the most sinister sisters of all, who live in the movie’s Overlook Hotel, but also the Hotel Budapest, shaped like a cylinder and with more than a little Overlook-creepiness to it.

animation marathon segment

A few months ago I took part in an animation marathon as part of the Fete de L’Anim in Lille and Tourcoing. Myself and two classmates from St Joost created 10 seconds of animation in two days. It was super fun and you can watch our segment here, and the whole compilation here. Our little clip and its companions are playing at this year’s Annecy Off, an alternative festival in Annecy dedicated to young filmmakers.

Whale Story

A fisherman experiences a moment of connection with a female humpback whale in the waters off of San Francisco. Is this an example of inter-species communication or a mysterious fluke? This true story, originally reported by RadioLab is retold in paint on a 16 foot high wall with the help of the passing public in Seattle's Cal Anderson Park.
