Jeopardy Vadio

Here is the Jeopardy "Commercial" that I did whilst at Curious Pictures for my internship. All the sound was given to me, so I just rolled with the animation from there.

This was a another class assignment near the end of my junior year at UArts. The only requirement was to collaborate with someone, so I worked with a classmate, Albert Trong and my brother Matt. I was happy with some of the animation but the most interesting part is the sound that Matt did. He found these old LP's that had all foley sfx and digitized them. The LP's were the only source for the sound, they had some strange stuff on them.

The Pretentious Illiterate Ogre

This was my first crack at Maya 3D. The assignment was to make a 5 second film, so naturally I took an audio clip from the stand up act of the great Zach Galifianakis. The cross over from stop motion to Maya felt pretty natural, whilst that may be true, I doubt I will do any full length films with it.

The Brothers Quay PFF Trailer

This is the trailer I did along with my classmate Jamison Conti for the Brothers Quay festival during the Philadelphia Film Festival. The music is by Sean Paulsen. The best part about the whole experience was getting to meet the bros in person. I couldn't tell what they thought of the trailer, I'm sure they hated it. They were nice guys though.

Here's what I did for my junior thesis at the UArts.
It was my first real film I guess, I can't even watch it anymore.
My good friend Ryan Wickham took a crack at voice acting for the first time for me, pulling off all three of the voices. A future career for him most def.
The music was done by a fellow UArts student composition major, Jim Scanlan.

Here's my first Stopmo film.
It was a mess.
