FEAST

I’ve had the opportunity and privilege over the course of the last year to direct my first short “Feast” at Walt Disney Animation Studios.  With Jeff Turley as the production designer, Josh Staub as Vfx supervisor, Brian Scott as the Head of character animation, and  Marlon West as the head of effects animation, I can’t wait to show the animation community at the Annecy International Festival on June 10th…

and the rest of the world in front of Big Hero Six this fall.   More information will come soon.

Big Hero 6

I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth, I’ve just been busy.  Late last year I started work on Big Hero 6 as Head of Animation along with Zach Parrish.  We’re working hard and it doesn’t leave all that much time for personal painting.  I can’t wait to show the world in the fall 2014!  Disney released a simple city test on the web a few weeks ago.  Take a look!

Oil on Canvas, 2.5 hour study from life

Got back into the studio last week with sean cheetham.  I was missing scarlet lake, must have fallen out of my bag or something…  making the warmer skin tones pretty tough.

Paperman is out there in the world!

What a few people out there are saying about #paperman, the short I supervised the animation on last year.  I’m so happy the world can watch it now in theatres, before Wreck it Ralph…

“SWEET MOTHER OF GOD WRECK IT RALPH AND PAPERMANARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN”

“Also the Disney Animated short Paperman was Pixar-level incredible. Wish they could use that animation style on a feature length film.”

“Wreck-It Ralph was pun-tastically entertaining & Paperman was one of the most breathtaking shorts I’ve ever seen.”

“Wreck-It-Ralph is a pleasant surprise and Paperman is one of the most amazing looking shorts I’ve ever seen!”

Go See it this weekend!

If you happen to be going to ctnx  John Kahrs, Jeff Turley, Sarah Airess and I will be doing a Q and A panel.

…  and if you’ve been to see it already,    Thanks!
