Final Classical Film

Here it is, my final student film "Papercut". It's the same film as shown on the Frederator webcast down there, but as a standalone video for the more impatient types.

It was an amazing, sometimes maddening, experience. And I just can't wait for the next one. Enjoy.

--------

Aqui está o meu filme tradicional, "Papercut", num arquivo de Youtube só dele. Para quem não teve paciência de ver no webcast do Frederator. Seus impacientes...tsc, tsc...

Spread the Fred Love!

I can't believe that "A Pug's Life" also got into the Channel Frederator webcast. Wow. I cannot thank these guys enough.

And the nicest thing of all is that all the 3 cartoons featured in this webcast were made by awesome folks in my Vancouver Film School class. Wow. So, congrats to the quirky minds of Debbie Sun and Korik Jones (links to their blogs on the right). It's an honor to be alongside you guys.

Here's the webcast. Huzzah.

--------

Ueba. Depois de "Papercut" entrar no episódio 131 do webcast do Frederator, o Pug agora entrou no 133. E o melhor: entrou junto com dois amigos e artistas extraordinários da minha turma na Vancouver Fim School. Parabéns, Korik e Debbie pelos curtas maneiríssimos. É uma honra.







In different news, today it's the first time my cartoons are ever going to play in a festival. It's "The Really Short Shorts Film Festival", and features mostly live-action stuff. Somehow, me and my goo pal Graham Peterson (link to your right) sneaked our silly drawing in there. And, best of all, it's taking place in a pub. Now that's a film festival I can support.

Run, Brainbot, Run

Here's a quick run cycle featuring a random robot. Because run cycles are fun, especially when applied to robots.

Done in Flash, of course. Took me about 3 hours of a sunny day to build the model and animate it.

-------

Aqui vai um teste que fiz rapidinho usando Flash. Um robô correndo, por nenhuma razão específica. Ou talvez porque ciclos de corrida são divertidos, e robôs mais ainda.

Feito em 3 horas desde o design até a animação final.

Yay for Frederator webcast!

Better than the Colbert bump, it's the Frederator bump!

I just noticed that my short film "Papercut" got into episode #131 of the Channel Frederator webcast and that's pretty neat if you ask me. Thanks a bunch to Fred Seibert and the Frederator guys over at NY.

So, here's the youtube video of episode #131. It's the first time "Papercut" is out and about on the web like that, and I'm honored.

-------

O Frederator, além de ser um estúdio em NY e LA, também é um dos maiores divulgadores de cartoons na internet. O webcast deles sempre foi muito bacana, com animadores novos e experientes lado a lado. Então dá pra imaginar como fiquei feliz de descobri que o "Papercut" foi escolhido para o episódio 131 do webcast. Valeu, Fred.

The pug's out of the bag

Finally, I put my Grad Flash Film out on the web. It's a little tale of love, loss and how nice dogs finish last. Sigh...

Tons of thanks to the guys over at Cold Hard Flash for putting poor old Pouglas in the spotlight. If he could smile, he would.


-------

Finalmente, coloquei online meu filme de Flash feito nas últimas 3 semanas de curso na Vancouver Film School. É uma pequena história de amor, solidão e como os bonzinhos sempre terminam por último.

Obrigado demais ao Aaron no Cold Hard Flash por postar o curta no site. Se o Pouglas conseguisse sorrir, ele sorriria.
