Family Guy

So normally I don't find Family Guy all that funny. In recent years it's sort of devolved into an intentional parody of itself- which is a little annoying. Occasionally, however, I'll be surprised. I was watching an episode, and was struck by a downright intelligent reference- and not to sound pompous- one that most people probably would not pick up on. They took a quote almost verbatim from Marshall McLuhan in a cameo in Annie Hall. I grew a little more respect for the writers after seeing this. Below are the two clips. He doesn't appear in the Annie Hall one until the last 20 seconds or so. And the Family Guy scene is around 3:45. I know this is quite a bit of effort to point out a little reference- but it shows that even stupid shows can have moments of brilliance.

Hambushed is done!!!! (ish). This morning after a week of absolutely busting our butts I submitted it for SCADanimate. We're still going to fix some sound issues before sending it off to festivals- but it's pretty much there. YAY!!!!

Suck It Up is also done and in. YAY again!!!!!!

Here's another animatic I did over the summer. We were given 3 images to construct a story around. Unfortunately I no longer have those images, but they were an old lady, a dog, and a bank. If this story doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you clearly have no soul.

*Amended- I do still have the pictures.

I decided to create a blog dedicated solely to my thesis work. It is

The link can also be found to the right.

So I just realized that my "home" link off to the right didn't actually link anywhere. It's fixed now, sorry about that.

So I'm in a storyboarding class right now. This has been the first thing I produced in it that I was mildly happy with. So I thought I'd share. Also, disregard the closing music. I was scrambling to find something to put in.

Secret of Kells

A fellow at the SAS conference, Thomas Walsh, was talking about a new movie from Ireland- "The Secret of Kells." The style looks absolutely beautiful, and I am already super excited about this. Any time something like this comes along every so often to completely blow away anything mainstream. Persepolis did it, Waltz with Bashir did it, and I'm guessing Kells will as well.
