Adobe Achievement Awards 2012

So Chris and I are currently amongst 3 Finalists for the ADAA Animation catergory. We're traveling to Toronto this week to attend the awards ceremony. Wish us luck! It will be live streamed! Yay (scary)!

Thanks friends and family for all of the love and support during our project! It was a tough one, but the hard work seemed to pay off! Now off to hopefully bigger and better things. More shorts!

This is such a delayed post, but we've been sort of busy and freelancing since summer started. We weren't technically allowed to post this online for a bit, but now we can! Here is Ramus!


We're happy we're finally done of course (we're finally getting some sleep!!) and have a lot of good news about the short. We recently spoke about the short at Autodesk headquarters in NYC, were semi-finalists at the Student Academy Awards, got Jury Award Best in Show for our class, got through the first round of the Adobe Achievement Awards (ongoing), amongst other festivals and interviews which we will formally list at another time. Danica was also a Top 10 Finalist for the CG Student Awards this year, along with winning the USA Internship Award at the Mill.

Ramus will also appear at Siggraph LA at the Electronic Theatre this year in August, yay!!

Thanks to everyone that supported us, including Muchachos y Nachos, and thanks to all of our super cool classmates who also have really awesome work that you should check out HERE.

We Almost Did It!

We still have some final tweaks to do on color and sound before final output on Thursday, but seems like we are, for the most part, DONE!! Here are some stills from the final piece.

So I have only 7 shots left until animation is over. Here's one I did the other day from blocking to polish. Forgot to turn the leaf dynamics on :(.
