Play Time! Using deformers in Toon Boom Harmony

In-between teaching classes the past couple of days, I’ve been messing around with the deformers in toon boom harmony. It is a really cool process once you get the hang of it. I have barely scratched the surface of all of its intricate functions, but I’m excited to learn more about this process. I’ve seen several animated television shows using it, so ii can be a useful tool to have under my belt. Here is that quick test!

AIGA Animation

I was one of 10 animators who chose a decade of art and created a 10 second animation for AIGA Jacksonville’s 25th anniversary. My decade was 1964-1974, and the animation was inspired by Milton Glaser and his design style. To add my own personal touch, I decided to use clay and stop motion in order to create the animation. It was a really fun project, and I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it.

48 Hour Film Competition

Hey All! Back in June I worked with Team Best Friends on a short film for the 48-hour animation film festival. As per usual, I created opening credits for the film. The concept was based off of child-like imagination and drawing of monsters and fear of the dark. I really wanted to sell the idea of child-like quality animation, as well as a creepy vibe considering we had Suspense/Thriller as a genre.

I drew a lot of influence from the titles for Drop Dead Fred (one of my favorite movies) and the creepy title sequence from the movie Mama.
For the sequence, I create some really simple animation cycles and composited them in after effects.

I hope you enjoy them!

JUICED! 2013

Hey all–

It has been just about 24 hours since I worked with my buddy Ajay (The Devil’s Garage) on an animation for JUICED! JUICED! is a 24 hr animation competition held in collaboration with the Citrus Cel Animation Film Festival.

It was quite a fun, interesting, and extremely draining challenge. Working from 2 different time zones, assisting students, hosting/running the event, and trying to work on your own animation in 24 hrs…INSANITY! Here are the characters I designed for the project, and a few of the layout I created as well.
