The emphasis of this basic character animation project was to use phonemes for character speech along with basic body movement and character expressions. This was created as a demo for an animation course but it was fun to create at a personal level as well.
A Demo Reel
My demo reel is just a random fireworks display of clips from multiple projects over the years including hand-drawn pencil tests, 3D type, content that was broadcast on television, promotional content, web animation, and interactive multimedia.

OLPH Festival 2018
This animated promotional piece was authored in Adobe after Effects and was then shared via YouTube and Facebook to promote our event. I volunteered for ten years as lead chairman for the event and I learned a great deal about leadership during that time. I wrote a case study article about it too!
After Effects Demo
This is a video sequence I share during early lessons in my After Effects courses. It shows students a few examples of masking and other techniques. We carefully dissect the authoring file together so students can see how the various effects are achieved.
