filmwerk + nonsense

Here’s my final project for Will Vinton’s Stop-Motion Animation class at Portland’s NW Film center.
We were given several audio files to choose from, which we then used to build a story around. I chose this quote from the Godfather, which I supplemented with some extra dialogue (can you nerds out there tell me what it’s from?).

An animated music video made in 2004-5 for the musical group Health & Beauty.

A Red Room/Black Lodge-themed invite for a Twin Peaks Halloween party we had last year. Pretty much just an excuse to speak some lines backwards. (Also, apparently those cheap plastic shower curtains from IKEA work great as greenscreens)

Here’s my second submission to the NOTLD:R Project. The DVDs of the finished project will be shipping soon. See my other piece here.

I had always been interested in challenging myself to make a 3D figure move around in a 2D space (somewhat) believably, and I hope I achieved that in this short piece.

The making of it utilized model-making, green-screen/compositing, and the creation of 2D backgrounds.
