FIRE AND ICE

An exploration in growth and forming — controlling the effect with a single shader in a procedural manner. The creeping melt of lava-esque surfaces and the formation of crystalizing ice.  
Xtep : Reactive Coil
Animation spot for Xtep's new performance shoe technology, Reactive Coil. At Already Been Chewed we worked with an international client based out of China to bring this spot to life. Working as one of the in-house lead artists my role involved rigging and animating the running shoes and waves, camera moves / animation, some shoe build-on, styleframes, and some live footage / CG compositing.
Dude Perfect | Intro Ident
Dude Perfect's Opening Ident animation — part of their graphics package including illustrative artwork pieces, video intros and outros. The animations can be viewed on their channel, website, and videos. My primary role involved developing + animating the intro ident, and designing the logo lock-up.

A brief exercise in collisions, impacts, tears, twists, and hits. Sound Design by JM Cifonie.
Tree Golem
A short teaser animation that sets up a journey about discovering others that share a connection through the ages. A self-initiated project.

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.

Lawrence and the Ruby
An exploration of two worlds colliding from vastly different universes — taking inspiration from one historical setting and combining it with one of fantasy. It originally started out as a kind of cinemagraph, almost a gif, but transformed into a bit more — Lawrence of Arabia meets Ruby Weapon. Concept | Design | Animation Sound Design by JM Cifonie
Brand Black :: Rare Metal
Animated spot for Brand Black's Rare Metal: athletic performance shoes revolving around the themes of lightning storms and thunder clouds. I worked on this as in-house lead motion designer at Already Been Chewed. Developed animated shaders / textures, spline PLA and cloth sims for laces, stitching, metal strips, and fabrics, along with other various tasks.

New Balance All Terrain : Hierro | 850-AT
The animation spots showcasing New Balance's all-terrain trail running shoes — The Hierro and 850-AT. The concept incorporated the idea of highlighting the key features across a stylized and rugged terrain, and with a single step, hit the different tech-points that make up the shoes. Working as one of the lead artists at Already Been Chewed, my role involved designing the animatic, creating styleframes, camera animation, shoe rigging and animation, terrain and vegetation animation, clear-coating on side of shoe, and rendering final animations.
