Nixon | Star Wars Solo Behind-The-Scenes 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. Concept / Design / Animation Sound JM Cifonie
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
Mammoth Mountain : Let Fun Rule!
A fun :30 spot created for the Mammoth Mountain ski resort, mixing low-poly geometric shapes with live action footage.
Under Armour | HOVR HAVOC

G-Shock 6900
The relaunch of G-Shock's DW-6900. Created at Already Been Chewed — part of the in-house team. As one of the lead artists my role involved creating the animatic to block out the flow / shots, animation, design some of the environments, water displacement, and composite scenes together. ABC: We worked with G-Shock to help relaunch the DW-6900 from... back in the day. It originally released in 1996! We developed this concept drawing inspiration from the past and realizing that it all comes back around to... nowadays!

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.
