    Artemis is wrapping up her festival rounds, and will be made available on Vimeo later in 2017. Wish her luck on the rest of her journey!

    Moving Image Workshop: Introducing animation, motion graphics and visual effects in 45 practical projects

    I'm published!

    Head over to Bloomsbury Publishing to check out The Moving Image Workshop: Introducing animation, motion graphics and visual effects in 45 practical projects, the textbook I wrote with my animation and motion graphics students in mind.

    If you end up adopting it for your classes, or end up writing a review, please let me know; I'd love to hear how it works out.

  • New Animation Finished: Artemis

    New Animation Finished: Artemis

    Busy, busy year.

    I finally finished Artemis, a stop motion animation I've been plodding through for the last year. It's just starting the film festival circuit, so it's not available on line yet, but shoot me an email if you'd like to include it in a film festival or screening, and I can get you access.

    Artemis combines 3D printed puppet parts (faces and heads) with titanium silicon bodies cast from 3D printed molds. With the financial support of a Mecklenberg County Arts and Science Council Regional Artist Project Grant, I was able to purchase a ZYYX 3D printer and PLA filament for the faces and molds.

    I was also fortunate to include the voice talents of Voices: Jeff Murphy (Driver), David Smith (Ghost of Elvis), Tyler Smith (Apollo) and
    “Beautiful Man” by Stephanie Fagan. (Music/Lyrics Copyright 2011, Stephanie Fagan, under License to Big Mavis, LCC. Sound recording Copyright 2011, Big Mavis, LLC.)
