Yellow Light


I had the privilege to work on Pharrel William's music video for song Yellow Light as a collaboration between Bento Box Entertainment and Illumination.

I animated the 8-bit minions in a few of the hybrid shots and completed some retake animation on a few of the video game shots. I also created walk, run, and jump cycles for the larger versions of the minions that were based on the cycles of the small designs.

Educaution


EduCAUTION is an upcoming documentary that examines the alarming concerns around the Student Loan Debt Crisis. The film is directed by David Esfeh  and produced by Ben Bhatti.

For this film, I directed a 30 second sequence of animation in which the American flag transforms into hands which plant a seed of "loans" that grows into a heavy tree of debt. My friends Bethany Craig  and Eli Hoyt  joined me as additional animators and background painters respectively. I animated the sequence in which the hands plant the seed.

Quicksilver: Infinite Story


Quicksilver: Infinite Story  is a computer based RPG created by Mike Sennott  as a thesis project for the USC Interactive Media program. The game is inspired by animated adventure television series, and therefore each story in the game is generated. In the story, four heroes travel the fantasy world of Lyria on a train named the Quicksilver, chasing down a mad inventor to stop his trail of destruction.

For the game, I animated the fighting moves of the main characters alongside Sullivan Brown  and Ben Brownstein.
