Nixon / Star Wars
A series of projects I worked on at Already Been Chewed for the Nixon and Star Wars collaboration Dark Side watch sets. It consisted of seven teaser videos and two trailers, each 15 to 60 seconds in length. They were broadcasted online in intervals over the course of four weeks. My role involved various tasks ranging from animation to modeling to texturing to lighting. Below are finals, styleboards, and concept pitches.
Impacts, Tears & Twists
A brief exercise in collisions, impacts, tears, twists, and hits. Sound Design by JM Cifonie.
I decided to do a sci-fi horror themed animation for this year's Halloween, and several sketches and concepts later (most of which found their way hurling towards the trashcan), I landed on something that was organic in nature.
The Droids : Nixon x Star Wars
Two Spots I worked on at Already Been Chewed for Nixon’s release of the Star Wars Light Side watch set C3PO and R2D2. Collaborating with Nixon and Star Wars / LucasFilm, we developed the iconic droids into watch form with C3PO dismembered into pieces and R2D2 assisting within an X-Wing. My role involved leading the C3PO spot and animating shots 2 and 4 on R2D2, along with other various tasks. Sound Design by JM Cifonie.
