"Home" Opening Sequence

These are my two scenes from the opening sequence of "Home". My favorite shots to watch were done by Andres Espinosa, they are the ones with Sharzod and Kyle.

The full scene is a a few frames longer, catch it on Netflix!












This new trailer has a ton of killer scenes by Anne-Marie Cyr (Tip and "litter eater" Oh in the car) and awesome closing shots by James Sugrue. I animated the shot of Oh and Lucy dancing in exercise outfits.

HOME on IMDb

Dreamworks uses a pic from my shot in the opening for publicity again, this time on IMDB.
My supervisor on this scene (and the whole show) was Ryan MacNeil. If the BG artist and character designer see this, please drop your names in the comments, I'd like to credit you!

TAAFI 2016 was a huge success!


Priceless souvenirs from our happy speakers! It was an honour to be their liaison! So happy to have brought my friend from the Spumco chat palace days, Michael Rianda to speak about storytelling and Gravity Falls! Everyone was a huge hit!


Old chat room friends united, Michael Rianda and yours truly

Hot Wheels: "A mega race! That no one will ever forget"

Since I've started working full time in animation (over 4 years now) I really haven't spent much time blogging. I wanted to update this space with some of my favorite animation drawings from one of my favourite projects, Team Hot Wheels.
