:30 Spot
Bog Scallops
An abridged super-short. In a land where the trees and plants grow with memories of a mechanical age, sits a bog lit by lost technology. Bob, the last remaining caretaker, keeps things running by trolling the waters in search of small pods known as Bog Scallops. Created as a self-initiated project.

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!
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.
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.

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.

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 run snip — Redshift and run patterns. An in-between-projects quickie. Developed and modeled character suit to explore rig options, shaders, and motion clips.
