Cloudy 2 Animation Reel
Sony’s Popeye Animation Test
While being back home in Sydney on a short vacation, I’ve finally had enough time (and motivation) to put together the shots I did while at Sony Imageworks on “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” back in 2013.
Looking back at this amazing and fun project, I became all nostalgic with a permanent smile on my dial as I reminisced on the good times and great friends I made. Not to say it wasn’t a challenging and or difficult show, but I have incredibly fond memories of the time spent working on this film.
Here is my reel:
Thanks for viewing :D http://dlvr.it/731Lx8
"The Little Prince" First Japanese Teaser
Sony Imageworks have released the animation test for “Popeye” directed by Genndy Tartakovsky on to their YouTube page.
Incredibly inspirational and insanely cartoony!
I’m so glad they decided to release this and hopefully it becomes a feature sometime in the near future! http://dlvr.it/6xq7Ny
There’s a Man in the Woods
Here’s the first of many posts that will be “The Little Prince” related over the next several months as more and more starts to become released.
A Japanese teaser (that can only be described as the teaser-iest of teasers) has been released. Showing one shot of the fantastic stop-motion work and one tiny slivered sampled section of a huge amazingly animated 3d shot done by Tania Simeons.
Here’s the translation :
Dear Le Petit Prince, where are you now, what are you doing? I miss you……..(StopMo)….(CG)…….Title: The Little Prince and Me…..brought by the original animation… to you… 2015 WINTER http://dlvr.it/6tsm9d

Haven’t had the chance to post anything in a while but I felt I had to share this short film by Calarts Student Jacob Streilein entitled “There’s a Man in the Woods”. Thought provoking, intense and with perfectly themed music I really enjoyed this. http://dlvr.it/5nY0pn

Cloudy 2 - Chester V featurette
Full Winter Jacket
With the release of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on DVD and bluray in a few weeks, Sony have released a short featurette about the movie’s antagonist ‘Chester V’ with commentary from Senior Animation Supervisor Peter Nash.
Chester was one of the best characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of animating. The insane ideas we were able to get away with on this movie, made it a once in a life time experience for me. http://dlvr.it/4kYrzD
My friend Andrew came up with the concept of me doing a side blog detailing my experiences during this coming winter in Montreal.
If you wanna read about how I deal with the on coming -30 degrees winter and how many times I’ve fallen on my ass because of ice (count stands at 1) then check out this:

Montréal and The Little Prince
Since last I blogged, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” was released in cinemas and I was given the offer to embark on a new adventure and move to the east coast of Canada and call Montréal my home for a little bit.
This is Montréal
But right now it kinda looks more like this…
And it’s not even winter yet
I’m now currently working on Mark Osborne’s (director of Kung Fu Panda) adaptation of the famous french novel ‘Le Petit Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, at Mikros Image in Montreal.
I’m really excited to be on this and grateful to be apart of this project! http://dlvr.it/4Pwlxv
