The Stuff I did on Sintel

Here is basically all of the shots I worked on for the Blender Foundation's open movie "Sintel". It was one of the greatest learning experiences of my career as a pixel monkey...

For the record, I wish I could further polish every one of those shots. Like I said, it was a BIG learning experience.

Facial expressions - sketchbook assignments

Here are some of my sketchbook assignments for animation mentor. The idea is to pick a photo that conveys a clear emotion and reproduce it with a cg character rig. The rig they supply,"Bishop", can be a little tricky to wrangle into shape, especially given the HUGE eyes, lack of the bridge of the nose and lack of forehead.
Any way, here's what I've done so far...

(This is my favourite one so far.)

Sintel is finally here!

After months of work, it's finally released. It was such a big learning experience, and I'm so glad to have been involved...

Durian Timelapse

Here's a time lapse I did of the Project Durian team at work at the Blender Institute:

The music is "Perambulator" by my Simon Leonard

Amsterdam Timelapse

I've been experimenting with making timelapse movies with my stills camera.
This all goes a little fast, but it's cool to watch...
