Animation Tests: Dog Characters

Howdy y'all!! Long time no post!

So I'm back from Pixar, back in school and back in action! I'm currently at Ringling wrapping up my senior year as a Computer Animation major. I've started production on my first short film! I've spent the last several weeks modeling, rigging and preparing my characters and shots for my personal favorite part of the production pipeline, you guessed it, ANIMATION. Time to light the fires and kick the tires.

Have a taste! Meet my dog characters, Runt and Big Dog!

Hope everyone is doing swell!

7 Days 'till Emeryville

Gee golly wiz! The blood sweat and tears have paid off!

One week from today I'll be flying out to join the folks at Pixar Animation Studios for an internship in Character Animation! I am both humbled and absolutely thrilled to have been selected for this! To work with the masters at Pixar has been a personal goal I have aspired to from the moment I feel head over heals in love with character animation.

Respecting the wishes of Pixar, I will not be updating my blog during my employment. If any friends out there plan on being in the Bay Area at all this summer give me a ring and lets try to catch lunch. !

Have a great summer everyone!
