Twenty Eighteen

Most of 2018 was spent putting the short film “Spirit of the Woods” together, which was a lot of fun. After the short film was finished time was spent putting the DVD together for the cast and crew, which turned out great. Other things created in 2018 were animated gifs with Trapcode Tao including some Gingerbread men and a Caterpillar character. I also started playing with the kaleidoscope program Inspirit which can be hypnotic!

In 2019 I hope to make more animations and would like to make another short film.

Merry Christmas (2018)

Merry Christmas.
