At Titmouse we have one day out of the year to put aside our daily work to make a 5 second short, it’s called 5 second day. Some of the shorts people have made are just simply incredible! esp when you realize you only have 1 day or the weekend at best to finish. Here are the backgrounds I designed for my old buddy Mike Moloney. Excellent voice acting from Ryan Self and Parker Simmons.

I designed the backgrounds to be very economical, since we didn’t have a fully finished animatic as a guide and Mike was animating at the same time. At the end of the day we had to use every part of the buffalo and create a background that we could use for multiple shots and not feel like we are just reusing it. In the end we wanted the shadow patterns but we couldn’t figure out where the character acting would take place, so we pulled it out for maximum flexibility. Hope you guys enjoy!  I’m actually in short too…floating around.   

If you guys want to watch the short feel free to check it out here!

After David Tennant, I wasn’t sure how anyone could carry the torch…but Matt Smith performance sold it every time and even when the material seemed at its weakest, he never once phoned it in. Thank you Matt Smith for creating such a memorable doctor! I’m glad I had some free time on my plane ride to crank this out.

I worked on a short commercial project for Blind Studio (incredibly fun studio to work for) This was a matte painting I did for the TV show Witches of East End. I ended up painting all the backgrounds and learned a lot about the magic of after fx. I figure this was the best time to post this, seeing how it’s Halloween!
