"Turkeys" 2014 release, now with distributor!

Just before I left ReelFX, I had almost completed one whole shot for their first feature film "Turkeys." If it's not cut by the time the movie is released in 2014, you might be interested to know they now officially have Relativity Media as their distributor. Good for them! It's been a long process I've heard.

Blue Sky Studios

To all the both of you who keep up with my blog, I've got some exciting news! I've begun my position as Junior Animator at Blue Sky Studios in Connecticut! Closer to my family, I'm very excited to be a part of this spectacular group of talented individuals to work on the the 2013 film "Epic."

Chuch E Cheese redesign

We keep busy here at ReelFX! I worked on commercials for Chuck E Cheese's new look. I'm very blessed and excited to be a part of this guy's legacy, and it was a delight to animate; one character, fast rig, locked camera, interesting moves.

Despicable Me ride completed

ReelFX teamed up with Duncan Studios and worked long and hard for about seven months to bring you the new attraction at Universal Studios Florida. It was fun for me to work with more beloved characters in their cartoony style. It was not easy, I admit, but the end result was worth it. Seeing people get enjoyment out of my hard work is what makes it worth it.

Billy West & Matt O'Callaghan Daffy's Rhapsody Interview!

Matthew O'Callaghan was a great director to work with. It was a dream being a part of his clear, creative vision. He knows how to direct animators and I very much hope to work for him again in the future.

Reel FX's new branding

I had the joy of animating on this marketing campaign upstairs with the commercial department! I animated the the octopus 'R' and timed out the city 'R' in 3D as planning for the stop-motion part. Take a look, if you're interested!

Daffy's Rhapsody out this Friday, February 10th

In front of "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," "Daffy's Rhapsody" will probable blow your mind! This was the first project I had worked on as an apprentice here at Reel FX and I'm ecstatic to see its release!! Animating to the original voice actor of Daffy was really something else. Mel Blanc's voice, taken from an old song he sang in the '50's, is front and center in this short, as it should be. If you have any interest in seeing Journey 2, I hope that you enjoy our hard work on, what I feel to be, a magnificent effort to preserve what made Daffy and Elmer a classic.
