Sing That Beautiful Song

Since music is wonderfully important to me, I've updated the site to have a little info on the current album I'm listening to. It probably won't be up to date often but people can see what types of music I love. Anything that is not listed is noise to me and shouldn't be exposed to anyone's ears. Am I joking? Maybe. Enjoy!
Dresden Dolls "Missed Me" Music Video online

I've uploaded the group project I worked on with a bunch of my friends at RIT two or so years ago. It was supposed to be a music video for the Dresden Dolls song "Missed Me" though it was never totally finished. The project was produced in ten weeks and includes 2D and 3D animation. Click on the image below to see the video.

Independent's Film Festival TV Schedule

The TV broadcast schedule has been released for the upcoming Independent's Film Festival in Tampa, Florida. Beetle Blasphemy will be broadcast on Saturday, September 15th after 8PM on The Education Channel. My film is near the end of the program. The film will also be simultaneously streamed online at www.indiefilmfest.us. There will also be a few theatrical screenings but I am unsure if my film will be included in any of those programs.

FJORG! Ahead

Prosthetic Foreheads LogoThis past week I attended SIGGRAPH in San Diego and competed in the first Iron Animator event called FJORG! (pronounced "forge"). The competition had 15 teams of three in attendance. For 32 hours, my two team members and I animated our butts off with little to no sleep (no sleep in my case). We didn't place in the event but we did well and were up for the top 3 spots. The event was a great experience and we got to network with many very important people in the animation industry. Most importantly, the competition was tons of fun what with such "distractions" as a contortionist, fighting monks, bellydancers, and random acts of pillaging. Here's the final animation we produced entitled "tp".

I've Been Simpsonized!!!

Ferris simpsonizedI went to this Simpsonizing site today that apparently everyone already knew about thanks to the Burger King marketing machine. After sending my headshot through the flashy gizmo, this pic was the result. I personally think the Simpson's character designers just got lazy and now they are making us do their work. If I see this likness of myself walking in the background of any upcoming Simpson's episode, I'll be suing before you can say Apu's complete name.
