Animated (very) shorts

posted on July 7th, 2014

Things have been a little slow at the Off With Her Headquarters. So after reading the latest Steven King novel, catching up on the internet, and really considering cleaning the house I decided to put my free time to use.
When I was in college I worked in the editing suits, as 1 of my work-study positions, and there I would while away the hours animating whatever popped into my head, until my shift was done. I have always really enjoyed this medium because it is something I can do without anyone else. Whereas larger productions require exponentially more people and support and scheduling, animation is just me and a computer and that freedom is really nice.
Here are 2 very short animations I made in the last few days to ward off boredom. Teeth searches for enlightenment and Temple is about the process of growing up and becoming one’s true self whatever that may be.
Take a look.

Yoga

posted on May 28th, 2014

In early spring Chris Durai and I visited Steadfast and True Yoga again (you may remember our acro videos from 2012) to shoot a teaching demonstration for studio owner, Gillian St. Clair. This video is supposed to show Gillie’s teaching style, but in a way it also highlights what’s important and too often overlooked about yoga: the breath. It’s always nice to be reminded to focus on the little things get good at what’s simple and important.

Loved making this video and love taking classes from Gillie. Win win!

Cigarette Waste Brigade is Kicking Butts

posted on April 6th, 2014

I spent some time last week animating a fun video for the Cigarette Waste Brigade’s indiegogo campaign. It is a great effort to eliminate cigarette butts from the streets and keep them from getting into the cities drinking water by recycling them into industrial shipping pallets. It’s pretty cool and I’m proud to have been a part of it.

Here’s the video and the indiegogo page.

Top 10 / Staff Pick

posted on March 7th, 2014

At Studio 360 they are still waiting for Wes Craven to choose his favorite 30 second horror short. But in the meantime they decided to choose their 10 staff favorites. And out of over 300 submissions, we made it to the top! Check out their choices here (scroll down a bit to find ours). We all worked so hard on this, it is truly amazing to be recognized at all for it.

Wes Craven will be choosing his favorite and announcing on the radio next Sunday (3/16).bookworm
