Current Reel and Next Feature Job

Hey all,

A couple weeks ago I updated my reel and now I’d like to post here. In this reel, there is also some of my shots from “Buggy Night” Motorola short-film, directed by Mark Oftedal.

I hope you enjoy it:

Besides that, I’d like to announce that I started working on a great feature film called “Snow King” this week, it’s a sequel of “Snow Queen (2012)” by Wizart Animation Studio, from Russia. Click the image to watch the trailer:

I started in the middle of production to help them finish the animation work. They have been doing an amazing job and I’m excited to be part of it.

WindyDay Animation Reel and People Reaction

I uploaded a video showing the segment that I animated on WindyDay. There is more animation work that I did but didn’t show because that  involves more people on the process that is hard to say the right credits. It was an awesome collaborative process and great direction by Jan Pinkava, Doug Sweetland and Mark Oftedal.

One of the greatest thing on this project is being able to see people reaction on the internet. The great result is due to all talent people invovled that I had a pleasure to work with.

Check it out!

“The Nut Job” Trailer

Sneak Peek of Motorola Project

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 11.09.57 PM

On the previous post, I mentioned a cool project that I was fortunate to be part of. It`s an interactive short for Motorola/Google, directed by Jan Pinkava, produced by Karen Dufilho, written by Doug Sweetland, storyboarded and character design by Mark Oftedal. Concept Art by John Klassen and sound design by Scot Blackwell. With a crew of great creative and technical guys.

You can see a sneak peek of what this project is in the following link:

It shows part of the short. The animation until the Mouse gets close to the bush is mine. After this, it`s  Jais Bredsted`s animation. Other animators also worked on this short who I mentioned on last post: Ryan Hayford and Daniel Paul.

Now I got the chance to work with some of those guys again in another show and here I am, in SunnyVale during next weeks. This time the director is Mark Oftedal and it`s been a great experience.

The Nut Job and other things

Hi everyone,

Once again I haven’t updated this blog for a while. Many things happened in the meantime, but I will be shortly.

I’m finishing a job for a feature film called “The Nut Job“. It’s a Canadian movie by ToonBox Studios from Toronto, and Duncan Studio has been helping with some animation work on the film. I’ve been animating remotely for Duncan Studio in this project since April and now is the last week.

It was a great experience receiving feedback from legendary animators like Ken Duncan and most recently by Chris Sauve. I’ve learnt a lot from them. I didn’t have the chance to meet the team personally but it has been aspiring seeing what other animators come up with for their own shots each day.

It was my first time on a project like this, and it was always my goal working for feature. So, I’m very happy with that!

The film is gonna be released in January 17, 2014 in USA and Canada. Once released, I’ll update my reel with the shots that I animated.

ImageFrom February to March, before “The Nut Job”, I got the opportunity to work on another cool project. Unfortunately I’m not allowed to say much about it, but I can tell you that it was fun and I got the chance to travel to Portland, Oregon and Sunnyvale, California.

There, I met some amazing people that I had a pleasure to work with. Some idols and mentors that ispired us to get into the industry. Like Jan Pinkava, Doug Sweetland and Mark Oftedal.

I also met some great animators graduated from Animation Mentor like Ryan Hayford, Daniel Paul and Jais Bredsted. You guys rock!

Updated Demo Reel – 2012

Finally, I finished my Reel after doing Animation Mentor.

I am very proud to present my updated Animation Reel , most part of it consists of Animation Mentor assignments.  Huge thanks to all my mentors: Anthony Wong from Pixar Animation Studios / Shaun Freeman / Dimos Vrysellas / Greg Kyle / Drew Adams and Sean Sexton, both are from DreamWorks Animation Studios.

I am responsible for all animation in this reel. Rigs provided by Animation Mentor, except the woman warrior shot that was done by me.

I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks.

ShowCase 2012

I know that it’s been a while since I update my works and post here, but today I wanna post to show my happiness of having one of my shots at the Student ShowCase of this year.

It’s an honor and a great motivation to keep the hard work.  Thanks!

Soon I will post some more works and perhaps show the progress of some AM shots. Right now I’m working to polish all the previous shots and planning to do a couple more to put on my reel.
