Notes on Reel contents
I was among the first artists to work with the new Disney XD brand. These projects required realistic 3-D background modeling and lighting, complex compositing, and tight editing.
For this spot I modeled, textured, lit, and animated the background, composited the greenscreen footage, and built the final spot using Disney XD's proprietary elements.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products
I animated these flat characters in 3-D space while maintaining a painterly feel. For these spots I created, textured and lit the backgrounds and text, integrated the consumer products in the environments, and animated the camera and cartoon elements.
To make the Baby Looney Tunes interact with live babies, I rotoscoped and composited the live footage with characters that I animated using Illustrator, Flash and After Effects.
I modeled, textured and lit the 3-D backgrounds for these Toon Disney spots. I also animated the camera and 3-D Toon ears.
The footage for the playground spots was originally used in a completely different campaign. Toon Disney wanted to refresh the look, so I pitched and implemented this asphalt theme, complete with animating paint textures and 3-D background elements.
For the special features on Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" special edition DVD, I rigged and animated a duel between a spoon and knife, as well as several other games and scenes. These special features won a DVDA Excellence Award in 2004.
My thesis film, "Leaving Home," screened at UCLA in Spring 2005. I created it using Painter and Photoshop for textures and Maya and After Effects for animation and compositing.
