2D Animation Demo Reel August 2013

The software packages I used to complete these scenes are Toon Boom Animate 2, Adobe Flash, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, and Manga Studio 5.

I’ve begun using Vimeo to host my demo reel updates, mostly because the interface is streamlined and less distracting to the viewer. So from here on out they will be hosted on Vimeo and the previous versions on youtube will be removed, which will effect the previous posts on this blog.

2D Demo Reel Update June 2013

Video

 Here’s the most recent update to my animation reel. I added some scenes from recent projects over the past few weeks, as well as a new music track provided by https://soundcloud.com/yannick-jason .

I’ve also started a new casual blog where I post various small animations which you can check out here http://rokusho1345.wordpress.com/

Storyboards!

Hey everyone! In this post I will be putting up a bunch of rough storyboards of various projects I’m either working on or would like to work on at some point.

BlackDogComp Bobway and the Apple of Contempt Rough Boards

 

The first set of rough storyboards is an idea for a short I had called Black Dog (Working title). I wanted to do something about this post apocalyptic setting without explaining the history. So I decided to go with this action based story about a boy and his dog battling a monstrous creature in a destroyed city.

The second set is for a Bobway idea. Bobway is a character that always seems to pop up in my brain so I like to work with him. In this story he encounters a sassy apple that mocks Bobways inability to partake in the bounty of the apples from the tree. Bobway eventually knocks the Apple from the tree but is left stuck and again unable to eat an apple.

Sun Flare Rough Boards

 

The final set of roughs are for a piece I’m currently working on using Toon Boom Animate, Photoshop and After Effects. A young boy and his father discuss the profound nature of their cosmic relationship with the sun, only to discover the sun isn’t such a nice guy.

Scene 9 Basic Layout

 

Above is a screen grab of the WIP on scene 9. The fire and smoke still needs to be added but this image reflects the style I’m going with for the short.

New Stuff! Hooray!

So as you can see I have updated the header and background of the site, that’s exciting. If you want to check out the rest of the background image (depending on your resolution you might see very very little of it)

I haven’t updated this blog since fan expo so there’s a lot of news on the projects I’m working on. I’m working on a short film for my final project of college. It is a 2D animated film that is without title currently, but it will be done soon and I will post it for your enjoyment!

Also there is a bunch of little animated projects that I shall also upload, and some cool illustrations too.

Fan Expo 2012

Hopefully you got a chance to stop by our booth this weekend at Fan Expo 2012. We had a great time and met a lot of fantastic people.

Now that Fan Expo has ended and my final year in Tradigital Animation is about to begin this blog will be going crazy with updates (after an extremely long lull)

Since I’ve got a lot to update this blog will be a little eclectic, but first off, for those of you that didn’t get the chance to attend Fan Expo or stop by our booth. Kris Auger and myself had a booth set up selling some of our prints and various other things from our personal works as well as our works at http://www.skullkidsproductions.com ; We also were making a good effort to get knowledge out about our development blog for an animated webseries we’re working on over at http://www.sedrik.ca (The blog goes live tomorrow so check it out).

So Here are some images of a few of the pieces I had available at fanexpo (and I still have some copies if you are interested in getting a hold of them)

We had a ton of fun and we will definitely be attending more events like this in the future (I’m not 100% aware of all the events worth checking out so if you know of any let me know)

Now as for the animation. I am starting production of my final film for school which I’m expecting to be pretty exciting. I will be posting a ton of updates as I’m working on that as well as many study animations in the next few weeks (I’m working on preparing some show reels).

Thanks for checking everything out 😀
