“CAT BIRD COYOTE”

“CAT BIRD COYOTE” is a film I designed and animated for Amy Raasch, as part of a larger project of hers about animal behavior. The film premieres today on Huffington Post Entertainment, and will be available to watch on every Virgin America flight through January on the Boing Boing channel! It has also been collecting awards at multiple film festivals. This little film is going on a big journey!

Animations for Six Flags’ Holiday in the Park


This year I had the pleasure of creating animations that were incorporated into the “Rockin’ Universe” light shows at Six Flags Magic Mountain! There are three 5-minute shows, which blink and flash over 42,000 lights across multiple buildings and a Christmas tree.

Lighting wizard Zach Moore did all the lighting design and programming for the three shows — he gets credit for making the whole thing come to life; I only supplied animation sequences. People really like it! I got all warm and fuzzy inside when everyone applauded at the end. It was quite a fun experience to animate on my computer and see it up across the buildings just a few minutes later!

This dazzling display is in the DC Universe of Six Flags Magic Mountain, should you decide to experience it alongside roller coasters :)

Dresden

Dresden from BrightEye Studios.


Official music video for Cliff Hines’ song ‘Dresden’. Animated by Tahnee Gehm.
The peaceable and artistic city of Dresden, Germany is bombed relentlessly with little reason given other than to stop the train lines for military purposes. The abilities of hands are observed — to be creative and caring, or simply press a button that causes massive destruction. The regret of abolishing a beautiful city is realized, and history is erased.
