Nathan Love: PopSecret "Dark Knight"

And now, the first of the Pop Secret spots I've been working on at Nathan Love!  (click image below)

I animated most of the shots of Grandma, except the first one and the wide shot when she jumps off the chair.  I have to say I've had a ton of fun working with these characters and the ones on the next spot.  Added to that, the rigs were great (and fast!), making our job as animators that much more enjoyable!

Psyop: UPS Holiday

Check out the spot I worked on for a few weeks this fall at Psyop!  I animated the characters in the clock scene as well as the dad, mom, and daughter in the Christmas scene at the end.

For the past couple of months I've been animating some characters on a commercial at Nathan Love, hopefully I can post those before too long as well!

Speaking of Animation

My buddy and fellow SCAD alumni Ben Willis has started a new animation podcast blog with some of his DreamWorks co-workers.  Among them is Stephen Melagrano, whom I had the pleasure of working with on Horton.  Their first interview is with veteran animator Ted Ty.  Great stuff, check it out!

Speaking of Animation

And "speaking of animation"...(har har), if you haven't caught Disney's new Christmas special, "Prep and Landing", you owe it to yourself to check it out on that glorious website known as Hulu.  Great animation and story!
