A Mime's Death

Done in 2nd year Animation at Sheridan College. It is for the expression change assignment. The assignment is simply to show a character change expressions at least three times. I had a very ambitious idea, due to very tight time constraints I had to cut a couple corners, but overall I am very happy with this one.

Weight Lift and Toss

2nd animation for 2nd year Animation at Sheridan College

video

The assignment deadline was really tight and I was a little too ambitious, so it is missing some facial expressions and the cut scene needs to be staged better. But hey, that's what these assignments are for, learning.

Wave Boat Sack

video

This was the first assignment of 2nd year animation. This was helpful in learning to animate various different physics

Flour sack-cloud interaction

This was the final project in 1st year animatation at Sheridan. I have another version that is 12 seconds (the assignment's time limit cut-off). The 12 second version communicated fine, but I prefer my version without the time constraints because it has more opportunity for proper atmosphere and pacing.

For the assignment we all drew an item from the hat and had to convey a clear emotion from the flour sack. I picked a cloud out of the hat and so I went with sad and made it a rain cloud. The story was thought up by me and my friend Minh, we thought it would be funny if the cloud was one of those stereotypical rain clouds that form over depressed cartoon characters. The flour sack becomes annoyed with the cloud when it does not continue to follow him in his depressed state.
