In 2014 I created and directed a 4 minute Google Spotlight Story called "Buggy Night". Here's the trailer, which I also directed. You can watch "Buggy Night" on the Google Spotlight Stories app, which you can download from Google Play or iTunes.
"Piggy" (2018) is about a jogging pig who falls for a delicious cake. Google Spotlight Stories Creative Director Jan Pinkava asked me to co-direct. You can watch the 3 minute short on the Google Spotlight Stories app, available from Google Play and iTunes.
THE PUMPKIN OF NYEFAR
"The Pumpkin of Nyefar" is a 2D animated short I made with Tod Polson, based on an idea he had with Maurice Noble, the legendary Warner Brothers production designer. The (also legendary) June Foray narrated. We animated it in Thailand with the help of Wang Film.
Early sketches for Warner Animation Group's "Storks". In 2014 director Doug Sweetland asked me to create sketches for characters based on a loose treatment. At that time "Storks" had more of a "Top Gun" vibe, and much of it was set in Australia.
When Pixar had Monsters University in a pre-script phase, I created concepts for random university characters.
Story, Character Design, Animation
I was brought on to the first Google Spotlight Story, "Windy Day" (2013), by Jan Pinkava and Doug Sweetland to storyboard, design characters, and supervise the animation.
