Animation & Art
Duskwalk - my thesis film from animation school! I made everything from scratch but the music. I’m proud of the overall story and the ambition of the project.
Below are some sketches and paintings that are essentially ancient history - drawing is a big part of how I communicate, and lately I whiteboard more than anything else.
In addition to my training and general knowledge of the world of animation, I spent a few years at Illumination Entertainment and was a part of their production and story development departments for Despicable Me 2, The Secret Life of Pets, The Minions and The Grinch.
During this time, I was fortunate to learn a huge amount about storytelling, blockbuster media, animation production techniques and balancing artistry with economy. Illumination is a one of a kind place with masterful talent at every level, and witnessing their process taught me so much.
