Here is my short film created for the MG Collective 2013 49 Hour Animation Competition. All work completed in 49 hours!  The theme this year was "Nothing good happens after midnight... or does it?"

I was lucky enough to get 1st place this year in the Professional category, but there were some really great films in both the Pro and Student categories.  My little brother Mariano helped out again this year by modeling some of the background props and the car.

I really liked working in this 3d/2d style, going to try and explore it a little more.  Also my first time working with a quadruped rig.  Used the new Tribe rigs from Animation Mentor and they worked out really well with this style.

Looking forward to the 2014 49 Hour competition!

49 Hours

Just finished working on the 2013 MG Collective 49 Hour Animation Competition about an hour ago.  The theme this year was "Nothing good happens after midnight... or does it?"

Decided to go for a more simplified style this year and try to do something that closer resembles 2d animation.  I think it worked out pretty well!

Here's a still frame from the beginning of the animation.

Look forward to posting the full short online around May after all the films have been screened at the event.

Need to lay down now, my back hurts after 49 hours of hunchbacking.

New Site

Decided to buy a domain with my name and make a simple portfolio site to have as a stand alone to this blog so it's easier to get directly to my reel and info.

Bedtime Layout

Started working on some new stuff after work.  I've had an audio clip I wanted to work on during AM, but never got the chance to.  I really wanted to do a scene where I would get to animate a little kid, and this one provides a good contrast to the father character.  More soon.

Recently picked up a Cintiq!  Such a huge difference being able to draw directly on the screen, and a lot easier to control line work.  Here's a few quick paintings/sketches I did testing it out.
