Thesis Blog Activate!

I’ve decided to make a blog chronicling my journey through thesis. As a result, I’ll be updating that page much more often than this one. You can check it out at www.bookends2014.tumblr.com


Please check it out! Thanks everyone!

A simple 2D animation lip sync using Photoshop, Flash, Aftereffects, and good ol’ pencil and paper. 

After 6 weeks, my group’s finally finished our mini-thesis short, “Fright Shift”! Directed by yours truly, co-produced by the talented Michael Altman and Anne Yang, alongside the talented team of Thomas Shek, Cody Hann, Pun Sintharangkun, Joseph Szokoli, and John Kim.

Haven’t updated in a while. I’ll get to fixing that. Here’s my 2013 reel, currently a work in progress.

My 2012 Student Demo Reel, updated for the end of the school year.
