Videos and Animation

3D Animation

It goes without saying that films have become riddled with 3D animation.  Whether it is 3D animation to create special effects in big budget and low budget films or using 3D programs to animate cooky characters who bounce around and say funny things, 3D animation is one of the leading industry techniques. Used widely in news segments for graphic appeal and in many commercials, 3D animation tends to bring a professional visual effect to many media elements.  Creating 3D animation goes way beyond just creating a character.  Animating in 3D involves acting, movement and anatomy, expression and emotion.

The first time I heard the term "ink and paint" was during the classic Disney Channel segment appropriately titled "Ink and Paint Club".  Although now and days a majority of inking and painting is done electronically using programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator, it would be nice to be born 50 or 60 years ago and enjoy classic inking and painting of animation cels.

This is a commercial I had produced for a couple of Doctors.  They had a ton of ideas that I had to implement into this commercial and although the process was a bit of a hassle (trying to fit all those ideals into a 30 second commercial) I found that it taught me patience and I found that although this commercial isn't what I usually do, it does have a quirky charm to it.
