Ahoy, all! It's been a while, but I've been keeping busy, and I'm happy to announce that the wife and I's collaboration project is slowly coming to fruition in the form of an animated trailer. That's right, there's a trailer...cause our story is so epically awesome that it warrants one. The following are screenshots from our pre-visual clip or animatic. I'm currently working on all the final animation.
Here we have a polaroid of Pachechi and her grandfather pinned to an old map. "A map of what?" you ask...you'll see.
A shot of an infamous pirate crew that our heroes encounter. Friends or foes? Not sure yet.
Oh snap, it's a sea monster! No high seas adventure is complete without sea monsters. So that's what I got for you. I'll be releasing more screen shots and sketches as we progress. Stay tuned.
Picking up Flash after not using it for such a long time results in simple, silly, and useless animations like this; which perfectly convey my “hushed excitement ” over finishing any Flash project, great or small. I’m a dork!
This is a video, with some minor animation, that I made for my best friend, Andy. He is currently serving in the armed forces and is stationed in Qatar! I couldn’t send him a present, but at least my wife and I were able to send him some warm wishes via the inter-webs! Happy birthday, Andy. We love you!
I had to create an animation for the virtue of “Service,” as in sacrificially serving others. I instantly thought of this amazing French restaurant my wife and I ate at for our anniversary. Their service and food was excellent! My favorite two dishes were the duck and the dessert. I can’t remember specifically what they were called, but they were top notch! Unfortunately the place closed down recently, however the memory of our experience there will live on. This illustration was a simple concept piece of what the animation would look like.
