Here is a bit of recent work from the past year. I've posted some of this already, but I just had it together for a small portfolio thing so I thought I'd post it, since it's been like, 6 months since I've made a post here.

A Balanced Breakfast

My baby this semester was primarily my visual storytelling project. It turned out to be a 15 minute almost 200 panel storyboard about a family during breakfast time. It is partially a heart warming tale about a young boy and his beloved ant farm, but mostly it is just silliness and stupid people commencing in chaos. (See this post for all the pre-vis work I did for my mid-term...I still really love those rough layouts. It's too bad perspective dies in storyboards, heh)

This is another project I'd like to work more on. My teacher had some great story suggestions after my final pitch and I think it'd be really fun to take it to animatic format. We'll see if I have the time. It was a lot of fun to do in any case. This is the first big storyboarding project I've ever undertaken. I didn't have a clue what I was doing, but I think I learned a lot. 

Since there are so many boards, I'll post just a few sequences that I like. 



30 Second Film: Late Night Snack

Here is a selection from my boards for my upcoming 30-second film (to be completed in Animation 2 next semester)
I'm only posting a few just for fun, and also because I need to go and play around with some staging. When I have the whole reel complete to satisfaction, I'll post that. And then I'll animate it.  

(That makes it sound so easy)

(But it won't be)

Starring Bonnie Lopez, who I have concocted to be another addition to my beloved Lopez family. She is the living-on-her-own, 20-something, hipster daughter that Rainbow and Seamus had when they were much younger. She is kind of a pretentious mess. Hmm...wonder where the inspiration came from?
