Cinematic Animation


I was an animator at the cinematics department at Oddworld and also did some cinematic work at Highmoon. These scenes were animated and produced between 2000 to 2005. Hope you enjoy them!


Please be patient, Youtube Videos might be slow.

In “Abe at the Well” I animated both main characters, Abe and Alf. Because the cinematics department at Oddworld was so small animations had a to have a quick turnaround. This scene must have taken about two weeks to produce, starting with just storyboards and sound.

Directed by Lorne Lanning.

This is a collection ofAnimations from when I worked on the cinematics department at Oddworld and Highmoon Studios (2000-2005)

All Oddworld scenes where manually animated using Maya, and the Darkwatch Trailer (zombies) was directed and shot in a motion capture studio and later modified and stylized using Motion Builder and Maya.

All characters in the shots where animated by me except the extra aliens in the opening shot and some of the background zombies in the shots where they are growling.

This Teaser was a lot of fun to work on. At Highmoon we had a Motion Capture facility at the studio, so for this project we got to shot acrobats doing some amazing jumps and leaps which we later cleaned up using Motionbuilder. I did not direct the motion Capture shoot for this particular project, but I did get to direct multiple motion Capture sessions for in-Game animations.

Directed by Farzad Varahramyan.

DARWATCH TEASER

This was one of a few tests we ran while working on Oddworld’s Stranger’s Wrath. This particular test was to see if the in-game “ckakker” models could be used in some of the cinematic sequences and be able to talk and act properly. Voices were done by Sound Engineer and good friend Michael Bros. Directed by J. Mauricio Hoffman.
