I animated this trailer for a conceptual game about country musicians through a distorted, mixed-media world while having experiences, completing objectives, and then writing songs about it. You use those songs to tour, perform, make money, and upgrade or downgrade your life as you see fit.

My friends Zim+Teemo asked me to animate on this upcoming project they produced for the FX network. Zim+Teemo made all the artwork which I assembled and animated in After Effects. There are excerpts of the show in their reel. Click the banner above to view.

A charming little 3D spot done for the 2018 Holiday season. I wrote, storyboared, and animated the characters in this spot and Justin Babin created the environments, colors, and animated the camera. The NOLA Ad Club gave this spot an AAF Addy Award in 2019.

I collaborated on this site with the artist Cai Sinead. The interactive front page was created with a javascript library called Three.js, which renders 3D graphics in the web browser. Click above to visit the site.

As the lead animator/illustrator/video editor on this creative team, I create a lot of explainer videos, editorial illustrations, infographics, and UI/UX assets for various B2B marketing teams.

My first commercial project! I actually had quite a big role on it, too. I storyboarded, created the artwork, and animated the chicken.

This was produced by 808 inc. In Houston, TX.

Part of the same series as above. The scene where the fellow is carrying boxes, trips and then morphs into a electrical outlet is the first scene I animated as a professional and it remains one of my favorite pieces I've animated.

Various illustrations and animated GIFs I've done for honky tonky shows, progressive magazines, and personal satisfaction.

I was sitting in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and while bracing myself to leave the car and go shopping, I had the idea for this film.

Here is the first Holiday card I did for WGNO in New Orleans, LA. I once again worked on this with Justin Babin (he built that wonderful street car). We spent about 2.5 months building the sets, characters, and then animating them. By next Holiday season, most of the anchors in the video no longer worked at our station, thus nullifying this spot, hence why the 2018 version features no personalities (except Santa). Still a charming spot.

I made this for The Backyard Film Festival in New Orleans. The theme was "Macho" and this is what I came up with. I made the silly song in GarageBand and finished it in about 2 weeks in my spare time. I had fun doing it, but don't plan on tackling topical subjects again.

I can't remember why or when I made this, but people seem to enjoy this more than my serious films that have been in film festivals and stuff.

seinfeld

I painstakingly re-created the apartment from Seinfeld in this promo. I used cheap craft paint, cardboard, and a hot glue gun. I think the most expensive item was the wood panel used for the floor.

My first short film. It's a bit odd but we keep it around the for the good memories
