CLOUD DANCER

A brief project exploring volumetric VDB clouds, simulations, composition, and skyward visuals through a ride on a living sky glider.

Animation / Design
Malibu Boats | Monsoon Engine | Command Center
A series of animations created to highlight the many high-end features of Malibu Boats — from the Monsoon Engine's Front End Accessory Drive and Direct Injection technology, to the Command Center's multiple points of control over the boat's different functions and features. As one of the lead artists at Already Been Chewed, my role included camera animation and choreography of shots, piston animations, UI design and animations, look-dev, styleframes, compositing, and other various tasks.
OPKIXONE | LAUNCH
The Launch video for the tiny, powerful OPKIXONE Camera. Created at Already Been Chewed. As one of the in-house lead artists, my role involved designing and animating assets, environments, and scenes for the spot, inlcuding the computer dash, launch tunnel, thruster attachment, astronaut rig, camera work, compositing, and edit. Look-Dev, Styleframes, Animation.
Nixon | Solo : A Star Wars Story
A collaboration between Nixon and Star Wars for the Timetracker watch — an animated spot for Solo : A Star Wars Story, inspired by the films characters and environments.
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.
FOX RACING V3 | RPC
The animation spots showcasing the Moto V3 and MTB RPC Fox helmets — highlighting the features that make them two of the most technologically advanced helmets on the mountain and track. As one of the lead artists at Already Been Chewed, my role involved developing styleframes, animation, flow / timing / edit, foliage, x-ray development, water-bead displacement, compositing, and other various tasks.
Adidas Lightstrike Dame 6
Animation spot for the release of Adidas Dame 6, Damian Lillards signature Ruthless basketball shoe. Already Been Chewed was tasked with creating all the CG shots of the shoe performing on the court. As one of the lead artists, my role involved animation of the shoes and rigging, blocking out shots, styleframes, lighting, creating the court light strips, and helping with the edit.
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.
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!
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.

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
