Some Samples

Here are some samples of my flash work! For anyone that might be looking here specifically for samples of my flash work...

^My Metalocalypse Test

^My Animax Test

^Clip from my thesis film "Coffeemug!"

So there you go! Three samples, for you to check out

Fjorg! Film

So there it is, the film we made in 32 hours at siggraph during the Fjorg! I think it belongs to ACM or something like that throughout the universe but I worked on it so I should be able to show it right?

I know its not the most phenomenal short ever created, there are some story problems but Hey! lets see a short you've made in that little time!! It was a crazy experience, and apparently all the other teams had done and Iron Animator contest before, we had not... All three of us animated on this but we all kinda touched on each scene so I cant say "oh! that scene with the guy, yeah thats mine" They actually did more animation work I think, I created the opening and closing credits/title sequence, and edited the whole thing on top of touching some of the animation. I'm just not so into 3D work anymore... And I was rusty as hell! I've been sticking to flash lately.

Overall it was a great experience looking back on it, while I was there I just wanted to walk out, it was f&#king brutal! But the goodie bags were rad and it was amazing to be in the first Siggraph Fjorg! ever!

Man! I'm just babbling waiting for the video to upload, its taking foooooorrrever!

See what did I tell you!

I would never keep up with the blog! So I'll give you a quick update.. (crickets...) I know I know, a quick update for my vast audience!
So I graduated in May, well sorta.. I still have some math classes to finish up but... good god math kills me..
Im working full time now as a flash animator on Metalocalypse! If you have no idea what that is, look it up.
I think soon I'll post my finished film up here for you to check out, I need to do some work with it to try to get the file size down low enough I can have somewhere host it though... There might be some issues with the sound..
Anyway, thats what Im up to, just animating away!
Oh and last month I was on one of the teams competing in the Fjorg! at Siggraph 2007. It was quite an experience, 32 hours to create a short while dealing with multiple distractions, and no sleep! It was hectic, the worst part? Alllllll night techno Djs, they started at about midnight and played until 10 in the morning, just so we couldnt sleep!
I think I'll post that up here too! There are definitely problems with the short but give us a break it was created in 32 hours with hardly any sleep! I think I got the most out of our team which consisted of lying down for 2 hours with my eyes closed cursing Techno music!
Anyway that was kinda long for a quick update wasn't it?
