An animation vignette depicting forms of mechanical structures, possibly futuristic, otherworldly and once advanced, but long forgotten, mingling with the creation of natural environments. A self-initiated side project.

Some snips of WIP previews.
AsDroid
A space chase. The little guy. The underdog doing the unexpected. An animation created in my spare time that was inspired by stark throwback arcade games and graphic novels. Sound Design by JM Cifonie. Thanks for watching!
Lightsaber Phrenesis
A quick, frenetic animation created to help promote the Star Wars themed Art Show "Powerful You Have Become" hosted by Already Been Chewed at Atama. It looped with other Star Wars themed animations on display. Concept, direction, modeling, animation, texturing, lighting, compositing. Sound Design by JM Cifonie.
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.
Crystal Vice
A short animation following a vivid blue through a dark and mysterious atmosphere, inspired by bits of artwork from silent hill and wonderland.
Bot Sledder
A super-short side project revolving around miniature astronauts, mechanical devices, and face-plants; elements coexisting together in an unlikely setting. Sound Design by JM Cifonie.
Hull Breach
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.
Devices (pitch)
This is a quick 3 series animation pitch for AFC's new apps and web presence. Sound Design by JM Cifonie.
Training Mask 3.0
Work created for the performance respiratory conditioning device, Training Mask. A series of design and animation projects created by Already Been Chewed for the release of their 3.0 version. I worked as part of the in-house team as lead motion designer, from creating look-development styleframes to compositing, exploration and final animation. The series included teasers, trailers, spots, loops, print pieces, and packaging artwork.
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.
DC Shoes. Sole of It's Own.
Renders and animations created for DC Shoe’s release of “A Sole of It’s Own” spot. The final piece involved projecting animated shoe-eating-shoe shadows against surfaces in live action footage. My role included animation, rigging, and texturing of the shoe, as well as designing and modeling the interior mouth. Created at Already Been Chewed.
