Croc WIP

Hey Everybody,

So like I said before, I'm on a track now to do a bit funnier stuff. The idea I got was a boxing match with two appropriately cartoony characters. The first one is this guy:
Croc Adams

I'll upload the idea for the opponent on another day. For the moment I'm working on the animatic trying to get the timing and rough camera moves thought out. Check it out.

That First Night

Hey folks,

Right now I'm in a space where I'm trying to really vary the different types of animatics/storyboard work I can do. Last time out of course was very much in the action packed kinetic style. This time out I wanted to showcase more subtle and thoughtful work with an audio clip from The Shawshank Redemption. Shawshank is for me one of the great great films of all time, not to mention one of the primary reasons why I'd never ever want to go prison (HBO's OZ being a close second:-)

Enjoy

ps. I want to continue to push myself. Thusly, I'm opening the floor up to requests. Please feel free to send any challenge you guys would like. Up first is a request from my friend Danny. This will be a humorous piece with characters inspired by the film Ice Age. Standby

Rope Bridge animatic

Hello all.

Yes yes I know its been months since I posted. I have no excuse. I have been working on the films however. This newest clip is part of the animatic for Harbinger. It's a major action sequence that takes place on a suspended rope bridge. The most immediate influence being the Indiana Jones films, which of course were paying homage to the adventure serials of the early and mid 20th. Beyond the purpose of getting the timing and pacing correct it was also important for me to put the Adobe Suite and Painter workflow through its paces. The entire sequence is just over a minute long. I did however leave out some more detailed elements as there is still more to be added at a later date. I'm happy with it so far.
