At Sony Imageworks I served as a Technical Animator on the Spielberg / Zemeckis production "Monster House." I integrated motion-captured animation into final shots using Maya and MotionBuilder. Here are some of the shots I worked on - click for video.
At Rhythm & Hues Studios I was a Technical Animator on Disney's "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe." My duties were to prepare motion-captured combat animations for use in the climactic battle sequence. This work was done in Nuance and exported to Massive for crowd simulation.
At Activision I directed cinematics for "True Crime: Streets of LA." My responsibilities included preparing storyboards and animatics, directing voice-over and motion capture sessions, integrating motion capture data into the cinematic sequences, and supervising final animation of more than an hour of real-time cutscenes. Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, Michael Madsen, Ron Perlman, Michelle Rodriguez, Russell Wong, and James Hong were among the many voice talents with whom I was privileged to collaborate. Here are my interview and some cutscenes.
While at Activision, I also worked on the Shrek 2 video game title. I did some character animation and created the following demo loop from gameplay footage. It plays when the game is left unattended for a period of time.
"Ornaments" is a 3D computer animated short that I began during my senior year in college. A year in the making, it follows the antics of a mischievous Christmas tree decoration as he pursues some milk and cookies. It has won more than twenty awards at film festivals worldwide.
