Assignment #2 - Haunted House

Here are some of the thumbnails I did. Tom ended up choosing a futuristic idea I had, so its more of a haunted laboratory than a house. The second part of this assignment is a close up shot (interior or exterior) with Wendy in it.

Joseph Gilland at Algonquin College

Joseph Gilland, who does traditional hand drawn and CGI visual special effects, was here at Algonquin College giving us a little workshop on February 25t. He was a supervisor for the visual effects department in movies such as Lilo and Stitch, and Brother Bear. Also worked on many other movies such as Mulan and Pinocchio. Here is a shot of him, signing his books 'Elemental Magic'.

Life Drawing Stuff

This semester in life drawing, we started using Conte. It takes a bit of getting used to and hopefully I'll be able to master this!

Assignment #1 - Music Sound Sync

Wendy got to rock out with her electric guitar. We learned how to sound scrub, which was nerve wrecking at first, but we all started to get a hang of it.

I included the video without the background, since I had 2 more layers; the background and the overlay, which made the video really dark.

Assignment #1 - Harmony Lip Sync

This was our first Harmony lip sync assignment. The famous phrase, "What are you looking at me for?" is used in this assignment and for our traditional animation assignment which will be done in 4 weeks or so.
