This is my senior thesis film for MICA! (2017)

In the Peruvian rainforest, a shy vampire bat named Quilla would like to dance Marinera Norteña with an outgoing long eared bat named Sikuri.

This film took an entire year and I finished it completely by myself. My film had the honor of being included in the MICA film festival!! (2017) I hope you like it!

Oh look, it’s the reason I didn’t have a social life in the past few months.
*cough* I mean this is the first animated short film Sarah, Maya and I worked on, I’d love to hear what you think! :D
Quite proud how it turned out, if I am being honest.

This took exactly three months longer than expected. Any sane person would have reconsidered before dumping a quarter of a year into making a parody short about a minor character in a stage play. .

If you’ve read the hilarious wild ride that was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I’m sure you too were caught off guard by the ridiculousness that is the trolley lady sequence. Under her kindly facade, she is in fact some sort of ageless homunculus that threatens school children with her arm spikes. Yikes.

You might also notice that the animation on Albus and Scorpius vastly outpaces the crap I usually churn out. That’s because Styxtwig kindly offered her animated talents in the pursuit of this madness. 

It’s been a surreal, almost dadaist expenditure of effort. Hopefully, you’ll get a chuckle out of it!

Hey all, so I made a film this semester! It was supposed to be a 30-second film but I went a little overboard. This was a lot of fun to do and I’m pretty happy with the results. Featuring the wonderful tunes of @everydaylouie, thank you for letting me use your music! Anyways, hope you all enjoy!

My Senior Thesis Film is finally up online! A lot of labor and love went into it and if you love doggos and big dragons you should definitely take a look!

When Studio Ghibli temporarily closed their doors a few years ago, many of the talented artists that worked at the studio had to hunt down new places to create. 

One artist that’s been fun to follow is Yoshiharu Sato, a longtime-veteran of Ghibli that did a range of high-ranking animation and design work for many of Ghibli’s features in the 90s, like My Neighbor Totoro

Since leaving Ghibli, he has been directing commercials for Japanese brands that also stand great little films in their own right. 

Above is a compilation of brief commercials for a Japanese bread company, cut together here into a short film telling the story of a baker falling in love. It very clearly is going for a Ghibli vibe, pulling particularly from Kiki’s Delivery Service and Whisper of the Heart

There’s one more commercial that doesn’t appear in the above film, which you can see below. 

And click here if you want to see another beautiful commercial Yoshiharu Sato created last year.

It’s here!

The teaser/voice cast intro for the upcoming Roz Wells + The Vortex web short, “Ant Agony!”

“Ant Agony” is a 3 minute short that will introduce the main characters and vibe of the Roz Wells world. When Crimson Canyon Junior High is overrun with an ant infestation it’s up to Roz & her bandmates to help an incompetent sasquatch exterminator in order to liberate Roz’s guitar from homeroom.

Check the video to see the cast (don’t wanna spoil it).

Here it is you guys! My thesis film from my final year at CCAD! Sorry if this took WAAAAAY longer to come out. I had to finish up a couple of scenes and fix audio that got corrupted. And even though the film isn’t 100% the quality I had hoped for, I’m still proud of it. It’s the first longest short film I’ve created so far and I feel like I accomplished a lot (Despite my seasonal depression, anxiety, and other personal stuff)

I also want to take this time to congratulate all of my peers at CCAD who also graduated this year! You guys are some of the most talented and kind people I’ve known for these last 4 long years. I wish you the very best of luck out there in the future! 

With all that said I hope you enjoy my film!! Please Comment if you have anything to say!

Let's Talk About D.Va

While most Overwatch heroes and villains have had their lives turned upside down (soldier 76 and Reaper), been lost in time (tracer) and have had to fight against forced relocation in the slums(lucio), I don’t feel like one hero in particular receives her due recognition from the expanded universe makers.

D.Va is literally a young adult gamer at 19 years old drafted into the military to pilot a mech to fight a kaiju-like sea omnic that learns from it’s mistakes and has hacked machines that destroyed most of South Korea. She is facing life and death everyday yet she makes sure people still have hope against a colossal beast machine. She streams her battles knowing full well one day may be her last yet she won’t go down letting people live in fear.

Where is D.Va’s animated short, Blizzard? You can’t give a character a backstory like this and throw it away.
