"Bippy and the Bug", 2015


Bippy is a little robot living in a computer and he does his best to figure out a strange error in the computer. This is relatable to anyone who has been frustrated by technical difficulties. "Bippy and the Bug" is my student film from SAIC, screened at The Gene Siskel Film Center, May 6, 2015. It also screened at the Visions6 Student Film Festival & Conference, April 15, 2016.


Animated in ToonBoom on a Cintiq and Wacom drawing tablet, with the exception of traditionally pencil-drawn animating the first full view of the computer bug (final-lined in ToonBoom). Sound mixing was done in Adobe Audition, and the video was edited and compiled in Adobe Premier.


"Louie the Otter: Louie Cooks", 2015


Louie tries his paw at making some hot cakes.

Animated in ToonBoom Studio, with sound mixing in Adobe Audition, and compiled in Adobe Premier Pro.

"Do You Have A Flag?", 2014


An exercise from my 2D Computer Animation class in the spring of 2014. We had to take an audio clip from a comedian or sketch and animate it through text and images. This particular segment is an excerpt from Eddy Izzard's "Dressed to Kill" (1998). I had a lot of fun with this assignment, and it was very satisfying to make.

All of the found images and text were animated and exported in Adobe After Effects.
