The inspiration behind creating this short animation was - I envisioned this domesticated, miniature T-Rex and if I did indeed own this pet dinosaur - what would happen?

Newscaster on Planet XYZ
To help with my acting development in my animation, I started watching actors audition tapes on You Tube. I picked this voice to animate because I really liked the awkward pauses in between his speech and breathing and felt it would be a great opportunity to practice weight and timing.

My Gypsy Bro
To be honest I couldn't think of any creative "full body" acting choices to go with this dialogue, so it became a great opportunity to focus on just facial expressions and this gypsy - fortune teller idea just came about.
(Also I totally started getting into the show - " Through the Wormhole" with Morgan Freeman )

Earlier Animations (2013)
Years ago I went to this skate park and did some photography work there and took some video footage of these skate boarders ; so since I had the reference footage, I figured I'd make this animation. I do feel that I might of given him some extra - dynamic because I placed him in this "space world" environment - where gravity can possibly be different?

I picked this scene from the movie Step Brothers because it was chock-full of energy and just thought it would be fun to animate. I've actually re-done this piece several times.

11 Second Club Submission
I originally submitted this piece in November 2013 for the 11 Second Club monthly competition. When I submitted it, it was not as polished as it is now, along with other things that were off - so I was rated 91 out of 367. However I was excited about this because at the time I really had no idea what I was doing. So as I developed I re-opened this piece and corrected it's errors.
