Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. My last semester before graduation was crazy, but now I will post a lot to show you all what I have been up to for the last 3 months. I’ve been learning to digital sculpt, producing motion graphics, created an animated layout for my film “Pigeon Wizard”, and creating a portfolio site. Here is the animation of “Pigeon Wizard.” I am hoping to fully animate it someday!
This is a character I made based on a story my sister told me about a pigeon who got onto her train. She claimed that the pigeon kept on flying into a particular man’s lap, because he was a pigeon wizard. My character starts out as an ordinary man until one day he starts being followed by pigeons. Hilarity ensues. I’m in the process of making a short film with this character. I’ll keep you updated.
So, I’ve stayed away from it for years, but I am now trying to delve into the mysterious ciaos that is Tumblr. I will still be posting here of course, but feel free to follow me on my Tumblr as well. The stuff I post there might be rougher and less finished than some of the things I post here. More works in progress and funny gifs. Should be more soon so be sure to check it out!
I updated my demo reel with some of the work I have been doing this semester. I hope you enjoy it! Some of the shots are from our student film “Nautia” which will be showing in film festivals soon. After we put it in festivals it should be available online as well. I’ll let you know when that happens.
Demo Reel Breakdown:
“Nautia”: Shots 56, 57, 57a, and 58 (Fall 2014) responsible for rough animation

This is the character from my previous post in different time periods/places. See if you can guess them all!
I designed this character based off a description I received from my friend Emmett. She was described as a 13 year old swamp witch living in the Southern U.S. She is not very good at magic yet and has a bullfrog as a friend. You should check out Emmett’s site! He has some awesome character design and animation!
Here is a sneak peek of our student film “Nautia”. The storyboards shown were some of mine from when we were first brainstorming different story lines and characters. For more videos, sneak peaks, and updates visit our site.
