Done February 2010 in my spare time. Not my best work, but still entertaining to watch I think.

Animated during the first session of the eveing stop motion sessions that me and Jen Bamford are currently coordinating together with Chris Walsh's blessings. I shot him against a make-shift green screen and edited the green out afterwards in photoshop, then adjusted the colours to suit the background, which was also painted in photoshop. I used After Effects for the camera move and shadow behind him. The sounds are from the Sheridan sound library and were assembled in Premier.
If you are curious, this is the original video shot against the grean screen (although I still had to use photoshop to beef the colour because it was so faded before. Chris's digital camera's are good, but they're still obviously not as good as professional cameras. You may notice there is some extra footage at the end, think of it as my own deleted scenes, lol. I thought it was a stronger peice with just the 1st half.
Built in my spare time out of readily available and inexpensive materials: armature wire, epoxy putty, shredded foam stuffing, salvaged denim, stick tack and acrylic paint.
Here is the skeleton inside if you're curious. Didn't have access to proper facilites when I did this so I made due with a digital camera and a light disk to rotate on.
My Second walk. As you can see I got better. I'm especially proud because I did this in the afternoon on no sleep from pulling an all-nighter.
First attempt at a walk.
2nd marked assignment in Stop-Motion.
Getting to know the puppet. Co-animated with Sandra Loke.
For this assignment, the cars had to follow this exact path, just miss each other on that exact frame and crash on that exact frame. I had to tailor my timing and performance to those specifications.
First day in Stop-Motion class. Co-animated alongside Sandra Loke. Just playing around.

Done for 3rd year story class. Because of time constaints we cut the first half of this sequence out pretty early on. The end result makes the film less about Apollo's fame and more about his stive for the moon. We had to keep the helicopters cause they're just freakin awesome!
While I was working at Economical Insurance as a summer student, they liked it when I drew caricatures, so my resource manager two years ago requested that I caricature everyone in the service desk team. This copy you see here is from my last work term but has some in it that were done in the first term. So some caricatures are a lot better than others because I got better as I went (by the way, that one of me the the bottom right corner was actually done by Emslie, not me. you can probably tell).
These were done on sticky notes, most with a mechanical pencil. This was mostly to boost employee moral. I gave each employee the signed original and made a photocopy of each as I went. What you are looking has some generation loss, especially that one of Raghav in the middle, he smudged it before it got photocopied, lol.
