Rhythms and Visions

This footage was shot at the Rhythms and Visions event at USC in April. The animation was projected opposite to the main event, the musical and video collective D-FUSE. Some of their images can be see reflected on the wall. The Animation was on loop throughout the entire night.

Lip Synch Exercise

Here is my final project for stop motion class, a lip synch exercise. I wanted to try out using replacement mouths (for Egg) and a Flapping 'Muppet-style' mouth (for Bird).

Miss the Misery

Miss the Misery finally made it's online debut last week. I was fortunate enough to volunteer on this Foo Fighters video back in March. The animation director was Musa Brooker, stop motion extraordinaire. I only volunteered for a day, but I did get to operate the camera for the camera move at 2:59! (Which involved being instructed to turn a dial at minute increments). Still, Foo Fighters were childhood heros of mine, Big Me was the first song I ever learned on guitar, and this was a really awesome experience!

Video was directed by Pete Levin
