Stop animation is a passion of mine. These videos express the enthusiasm that I have for both animation and film alike.
The top videos here are my most recent works. The first one is a potential kickstarter video for my graphic novel tentatively titled "Loup" You can find more images and information about it under the illustration section. Then there is an animation done in honor of Jimmy Fallon taking over for Jay Leno. A little homage to the Kings of Late night.
Next we have an animation I worked on with Razor Productions. It was a fun project for Showtime's website advertising the new season of Shameless.
These videos have been edited and created using After Effects, Dragon-frame, Photoshop, Final cut, I-Movie and Flash. The Inevitable Alliance stop animations are student films my friends, classmates, and I put together. The First Inevitable alliance was completed with over 3000 photos and without any software except Photoshop and I-Movie. It was painstakingly difficult. However the second Inevitable Alliance was created using Dragon-frame and After Effects. Needless to say it was a much more enjoyable experience.
Finally the TV spot animations were a class project during my undergrad using Flash and After Effects.
The bottom most video is the first of a series that will explain how the create your own animation puppet as well as stop animation overall.
