Hawaiian Flinstones

The sarcastic, intelligent daughter and the obnoxious son.They said I took the Flinstones thing too literally .
After the design direction changed I was relegated to secondary characters like these horny sargeants and entitled tourists .

"Happy" Faux Music Video

This was a down time project at wildbrain that was originally intended to be a quick turn around CG piece that would show off a "down and dirty" style of CG that we normally didn't get considered for. We cobbled together a couple of Yo Gabba songs for the soundtrack and didn't fuss about the story too much since it was just supposed to be a "look" piece, not a short film. Later we added the forest animal flash sequence because the story was .... ahhh .... too minimal. I wrote, directed, story boarded and designed the characters. The wildbrain CG department did a great job of modeling, rigging, animating and lighting despite the fact they thought that it was weird and indulgent. Nick Hewitt art directed and made it pretty while Nathan Stephens went crazy with the AfterEffects lens flare action.
