quick experimental project

I enjoyed stop motion very much but after studying movies like Coraline and Fantastic Mr.Fox, I fell in love with it. I love the physical/personal relationship designers get to have with the characters/puppets and the sets etc.

for this experimental project, I wanted to marry my illustrations and animation together and make a short stop motion piece.

This is a story of a girl who longs for acceptance from society.
I set this animation in the bathroom because it is a place where people get made up. It's a personal space that allows for a private and a intimate moment with yourself-just you and the mirror.

It was perfect timing. My boyfriend had just scrubbed cleaned his bathroom the night before so I took advantage of that. yey for Tom :D

Kodak-it's time to smile

project i've worked on at Paranoid as 2-d designer/artist with one of my favorite director Sophie Gateau.
I helped with drawing out the character on Flash, cutting and organizing the life size character printouts, designing and making the paper doll, post production animation, and the title cards.
Working with team of talented, awesome people such as Sophie was such a pleasure and fun!

i am also the proud parent of Piglet the bulldog in the movie :)

is your dog constipated?

intro for how to treat a constipated dog

Piglet my bulldog was constipated for about 48hours. He normally goes potty 3times a day...and this was not a good sign. I had to figure out how to make him feel better and finally through process of belly rubs and some pumpkin, Pig was relieved. This inspired me to make a animation. I'll update the rest soon :)

Rat City Complete!

Special thanks to Tom and Mike Borowski for making this animation happen!
The amazing Borowski brothers.
