A family of robots trying to be human. Sort of an animation/design test for an idea in development….

Strange things happen when a group of friends attempt to see the space shuttle landing at Edwards Air Force Base.

My first foray into film-making. Shot on Super-8 when I was 10 years old, with the help of my family, friends, and an incredible teacher named Craig Call, with whom I’ve since regrettably lost touch.

Because who doesn’t love stop-motion animated, anthropomorphic tomatoes? Evidently, the Heinz corporation…
I threw this together in a couple of days for a contest sometime in 2007. Sort of my chauvinist answer to the California Raisins. Needless to say, I didn’t win. Still, had fun making it.

As I’m wrapping up principal photography on my new stop motion short, “Bygone Behemoth,” I thought it might be interesting to show the process by which the main character was designed and constructed.
“Bygone Behemoth” tells the story of a washed-up B-movie monster called Al, a relic of the past akin to the fantastic creatures brought to life by special effects artists like Ray Harryhausen and Willis O’Brien. As such, I decided to create Al using the old-fashioned latex/foam build-up method pioneered by Marcel Delgado.
