Wild Dogs Parody Poster

At Ringling, all of the computer animation major seniors create fun parody posters for their thesis short films. This year's poster theme was Oscar winners. I decided to do last year's Best Picture winner, No Country For Old Men. That and There Will Be Blood were my favorite films of 2008, I'd say. Sadly I only had about 40 minuets to work on this, but here's what I cooked up.

I also was pleased to find out last week that Wild Dogs was selected for the annual Best of Ringling show! It's both a huge honor and a personal accomplishment. I have accomplished my goal of being accepted into the BOR show 4 years in a row.

Two weeks until schools out forever!

Pack the chew toys, we're heading to the Big Easy!

This week I was shocked to receive the news that my senior short film, Wild Dogs, has been selected for the 2009 SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival!

I'm honored to have my film selected this year and am very excited to have my film screening for this event. This will be my first time attending the international ACM SIGGRAPH conference. Ringling College of Art and Design placed eight films in the festival this year. Totally awesome! This year's conference is being held in New Orleans on August 3-7. The wild dogs and I hope to see you there!

Keep an eye on my blog for updates about Wild Dogs. I'll be wrapping this baby up here sometime in the next two weeks. The film will debut online sometime this summer.
