Demo Reel

Hey Guys,

I graduated from Full Sail University on the 1st of July! My demo reel is done and now it's time to step out and start looking for a job in the industry. It seems like school flew by so quickly looking back on it. I feel that I'm definitely prepared for what's ahead though thanks to the great faculty at Full Sail and I can't wait to start working!

Here's my demo reel. Hope you like it!

New Update!

Hey guys!

I forget which week we're in now so I'll have to cone up with a more creative title for the next update. Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I've been pretty busy working on my animation for PCC3. This month I'm working on a dialogue and I think it's going pretty well so far. There's still plenty of work to do on it obviously, but I hope you like it!

Week Eight Update!

Hey guys,

Sorry for the late entry. I recently got back from spring break back home in Chicago. It was nice to take a week off and relax for a bit. Before I went on break I finished PCC2 and even had time to work on an extra quadruped run cycle. I didn't have time to finish the extra run cycle before break but I got a good amount of work done on it.

I start PCC3 tomorrow and that means working on my dialogue which I'm really excited for!

Here's my finished animations from PCC2 and the extra quadruped run cycle I worked on. Hope you like them!

Week Seven Update!

Hey guys,

I'm definitely making good progress this month. I just finished my third week of PCC2 and I've got all 4 of my game animations pretty much done. I still have some things to tweak in the graph editor, but over all I feel pretty happy about the way they came out. I even had time this week to go back and improve my PCC1 asset!

I'm really impressed with the level of improvement of not only me, but all the animators in my class. It seems like we've improved alot just from PCC1 to PCC2. I can't wait to see the quality of animation we'll be producing in the future! I know I've still got A LOT to learn, but I'm happy with my progress.

Four videos for you this week! I finished my knock back animation and worked on my first 3 assets from this month and here they are for your viewing pleasure! Hope you enjoy!

Week Six Update!

Hey guys!

I'm into my second week of PCC2 now and I feel like I've had a really productive week! I had lab everyday this week so I had alot of time to work on my run cycle and ended up getting it to a point where I can start fine tuning it early. So since I had time I started on my attack animation and actually got that to the fine tuning stage too!

I got a really good critique from Sean Springer, the art director of animation, and I'm mainly working in the graph editor now to work out some kinks and making small adjustments. I'm really excited to see where these end up!

Three videos for you this week!

For some reason Viddler sped up the end of the videos so the timings a bit off at the end. You get to see two good cycles on the run and walk at least before it speeds up. The timing on the attack seems to be right up to the exhale.

Week Five Update!

Hey guys!

I finished PCC1 and this week was my first week of PCC2. This month I have 4 game animations to work on which means I'll be animating, roughly, one animation each week. This first week I worked on my walk cycle.

Since spring break lands on this month I actually only have 3 weeks to do 4 game animations. Luckily, they're all already blocked out. So it shouldn't be too hard to finish them. I just hope I can get them looking the way I want them too before months end.

Here's my walk cycle. I hope you like it!
