“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!

Spike Driver Blues Zoetrope

This is a zoetrope I made for the CalArts Re-Envisioning America show 2012. I had the idea of getting more mileage out of zoetrope animation by controlling the images by turning on and off different colored lights. In this one (hopefully the first of several), red, green and blue lights turn on and off to reveal three different images.
It’s a little floppy, it’s not perfect– but it was a pretty successful learning experience!
Powering everything is an Arduino Uno, Ardumoto shield, motor, and a BlinkM MaxM light. Animations were done in TVPaint.

Credits Intro for The Fear of Short Men Finale

Created for Alter Ego, the fifth and final episode in Amy Tofte’s series, Fear of Short Men. The players interacted with this intro by jumping out from behind and gesturing at their on-screen selves. Performed May 6th and 7th, 2011 at the CalArts Coffeehouse Theatre!
