GROW GRASS GROW

After winning "Best Lawn in America" for 25 years straight, the newly inaugurated president of PETA, Hank Greensfolk, must choose between his two greatest loves when groundhogs begin tearing up his prestigious lawn.

Shot and edited in one week, I was the visual effects supervisor and visual effects artist. Grow Grass Grow went on to win "Best Comedy" in the international grand finale of Campus Movie Fest in 2010 in Las Vegas.

In addition to approximately 20 VFX shots, I also designed the opening title and credit sequence, using Cinema 4D to render realistic grass effects.

Techniques used in this movie include 3D tracking, 3D models, matte painting, vfx compositing, clean plating, rotoscoping, and other minor effects.

SCRABBLE: THE MOTION PICTURE

Over half a century of competitive gaming takes an unlikely turn in Scrabble: The Motion Picture. Joe, the deeply devoted and fearless captain of the Bridgewater State College Scrabble Club must shine a light in the darkness for his steadfast club members after being contacted by a man named Hasbro.

Like Grow Grass Grow, Scrabble was also shot and edited in one week. I supervised both practical and digital visual effects, and also performed all the compositing myself. Scrabble won "Best Comedy" in the international grand finale of Campus Movie Fest in 2009 in Los Angeles. I was also nominated for Best Visual Effects.

I designed the title and credit sequence as well as all the visual effects shots.

HERO FOR A DAY

December 16th, 2008

I was drawing stick figures in my notebook a couple weeks ago and came up with the idea for this movie. Another short animation project of mine, this time in HD! Music Credit: Express Yourself - Charles Wright and the Watts 103rd Street Rythm Band

DANGER ROOM 3

November 19th, 2008

In the third installment of the Danger Room series, a conflict of epic proportions arises. This is a month long animation project inspired by Kyle McCauley. If you haven't seen Turtle Room: Danger Room 2 yet, I highly recommend that you check it out first.

A RODENT ROMANCE

October 25th, 2008

I was trying out some new(ish) animation techniques using some drawings I made and liked what I came up with. I whipped up a little short in my free time this week using the stuff I made. A simple story of a mouse in love. Music Credits: Black Label Society -- In This River

TURTLE ROOM

January 26th, 2008

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles battle in the city. This was my first attempt at making an animated short movie, and I learned more with this movie than any project I had done before. Even though it's pretty short and simple, I love this movie. You should too.

ULTIMATE LOSS

February 21st, 2008

When an over-competitive rival is beaten enough, you will receive the ultimate loss. This is an awesome movie we made in 4 hours while playing video games. Excellent.

GANKED

February 20th, 2008

When you combine aggravation and griefing, you get ganked. A great case study providing evidence for the necessity of anger management courses for choice individuals.

ABOUT ME V01

January 27th, 2008

A stupid little movie that pretty much sums up what's in my head. One of the first things I made in After Effects.

ABOUT ME V02

January 27th, 2008

An updated version of my original about me movie. A suggestion made by a friend gave me the drive to make some improvements to my original.
