My most up-to-date reel!
"The Button on the Desk!" is about of a girl who wakes up one morning to find a note from her roommate, telling her to not press the button that has mysteriously appeared on her desk. I served mainly as an animator on this short film, with other duties entailing troubleshooting, lighting, and camera work. The film debuted at the Vermont Animation Festival in 2016.
This digital phenakistoscope was made to represent the Black Dog of Hanging Hills, a Connecticut folk tale. There's said to be a silent black dog ghost that haunts the Hanging Hills region, and that seeing it once grants joy, the second time serves as a warning, and a third time is a sign of imminent death.
The three animals present, each native to Connecticut, symbolically represent these three stages.
A series of animations of basic human motions to convey a sense of understanding of 3D animation.
Mannequin created for use in production for an indie animated series I'm working on with a small team, titled "Restart". The animation consists of 2D characters set in 3D scenes, with this character created for the sake of A) easily tracking background characters in the 3D environments, and B) putting together 3D cycles for the lead animator to quickly draw over.
"De-Face-Ment" is a short animation about the (tragically short) lives of two characters on a wall of graffiti.
"Splash!" is a short exercise in 2D animation, also used as a bumper in the 2015 and 2016 Vermont Animation Festivals.
