Project London!

Hey everyone!  For any of you who have yet to hear about the progress on Project London, the film is essentially finished (excepting sound design)!  For anyone who doesn't already know what Project London is, find out at  I have been given the incredible privilege of working on visual effects for this film over the past few years, and it has been an amazing growing experience for me.  Anywho, here's the fun stuff: a sample from the first press release and some fun links and images for you guys:

New teaser clip!  Watch it.  Do it.  You know you want to.

From the press release:
     New teaser clip about the “movie that will eat your planet” unveils today, highlighting significant storyline elements and exclusive music from Half Acre Day.
Bothell, Wash. – Tuesday, March 23, 2010: As the final touches of independent, feature-length effects marvel Project London are now underway, the film is quietly gaining attention among special effects experts and social networking communities all over the world. The virtually no-budget, live action movie features more than 650 vivid, intense visual effects and animations that help drive a compelling story about a boy battling with a moral dilemma in a present day sci-fi epic. Unique to the film’s production is the use of the open-source software, Blender, for the core of all animated visual effects in the film. As called it, Project London is likely one of the “most ambitious no-budget effects movie ever.”
     “The entire concept of Project London is enough to make anyone excited, from science fiction fans to software engineers, from movie buffs to post-production artists, and it has,” said Phil McCoy, Project London Executive Producer and founder of Spiral Productions LLC. “An undertaking like this film wouldn’t be possible without a storyteller like Director Ian Hubert, the support of many talented Blender artists, and the more than 250 worldwide volunteer artists and craft people who joined our team.”
     Progress and new reveals of Project London are chronicled on the movie’s Web site at, where, today, the newest teaser clip has been released to the public. The clip introduces fans to the world of Project London and its two significant forces: the London Underground and the Joint Command. The song showcased in the new teaser clip, “Multiply,” is a brand new song by Half Acre Day. It will be featured in the film and available exclusively on the Project London soundtrack.

Stuff from this quarter at SCAD

Heya everyone!  I've just finished my finals so I'm taking a little time to post some work you haven't already seen from this quarter at SCAD.

NOTE:  you may need to play the videos twice to see the beginning of them, sometimes the first half-second or so gets cut off.

Here's a few of the animations I did in my 2D Effects Animation Class with professor Gustafson:

And here's the other half of my final for my Caricature class (the previous post was the first half of the final):

My new website design at was created for Animation Professional Development class.  Be sure to check it out, I have some new 2D work and a completely new demo reel up there with some of my work from Project London!

Enjoy :)
