I recently did character animation for this “Ice Cream Headache” project. The project was produced at Hue&Cry, working with The Martin Agency.

Hue&Cry produced 3 other spots, "Do Not Disturb,"   "Automatic Door," and "Boombox," which can be seen on Chips Ahoy’s Youtube Channel. These other 3 were animated by Richard DeForno.

The old post for this animation was causing some issues. So I’m gonna repost it. This was for the 11 second club competition in November of 2013.

Done with my submission for the 11 Second Club competition for March.

Two oddly paired friends going on a surfing trip, and the driver attempts to enlighten the passenger.

Gotta wait a few days for the voting to go down. I’m hoping for top 11! 

Update. Got 7th! Woot!

I had the wonderful opportunity to work on this project for Sony’s Wonderbook: ‘Book of Spells’ over at Blind. It was an amazing experience to work with such a talented collection of people on a truly exciting project. I was lucky enough to help out with assorted aspects of production, and ended up doing some previs, rigging, animation and composting. Great times with great people! Here is a link to the case study that Blind made about it.
