Fancy Armature Walks


video

I got a fancy ball and socket armature as a loaner after I finished "Bringing Up Bigfoot" to do some more tests and animations for my portfolio. I put this walk together for my demo reel. I really wish I had more time with this puppet and my take home stop motion kit; but there was just so many things I had to do for my portfolio and stop motion was already one of the areas I had covered. That in mind I found it very pleasurable to animate with such a nice puppet, once I'd gotten used to it of course, very different from what I'm used too.

Movie Poster!!! - Bringing up Bigfoot


As part of my program's industry day promo we are required to create fun movie posters for our short films to be used as promotions in our booklets; or at least that's how I understand it... I think I get grades for doing this too. Anyway, it was a fun little distraction from all the portfolio and demo reel work I've been doing, cheers.

2D Animation Wave


Traveling off the beaten path right now; into 2D land. In preparation for my program's industry day and my eventual excursions out into the working world, to find that first job (yikes), I am bolstering my portfolio/demo reel with 2D animations. This first one is a lip sync, which took my longer than I expected it too; since I've been doing stop motion exclusively for quite a few months now that it's a very different flavour, I enjoy doing both, and I've got the feel for drawn animation back, a plus. I'm planning on doing three in total for now, as there's still so much that I want to get prepared; and from those three I'll choose one to clean and colour. That in mind, this animation is rough, and could use some more refining but I felt its at a place where I can start to show it off.

Beam me up, Bigfoot!

I want to post so much from my film but I'm going to have to thoroughly read about festivals and submissions before I post the whole thing online. Just in case posting it all will disqualify it from submission, that being said I don't know enough yet but it will all go up one day or another.

Anyway; I like sci-fi, like a lot, and that's where this teleporter comes in; its hard to discern from the overall story from the bits and pieces I gave out but you can start to guess. And I did quite a few SFX shots and wanted to show at least one. So, here is one groovy teleportation, very pleased with how it turned out.

19 Finished Shots

Whew; I'm at that stage with my thesis film where I can technically call it quits with a completed film. Bringing up Bigfoot; a mockumentary with a run time of 72 seconds. There's still some extra gubbings I have to take care of like texts, credits and whatnot but in terms of footage I'm satisfied with the results. If I get some good suggestions in the comings weeks for changes before it's technically due at the end of the school year I may implement them, but otherwise, YAY!!!
