The official GENERACIJA Y (Generation Y) music video for the band PUPPETZ.
I was discovered by the Slovenian band Puppetz via YouTube back in February of 2011. They contacted me about an Idea they had for a stop motion animation music video. After discussing the details, I agreed to do it. After two months animating my computer crashed and I lost about half the animation. . . So after re-animating what was lost, and months later, it was finally done! A little while after the band received the video they said the premier was going to be on MTV! The video then went on to win "Best video of 2011"

Boinx Software came to me and asked if I could create a short animation for them showing off their new software iStopMotion for the iPad. The animation was captured entirely on the iPad using IStopMotion and cut together using iMovie for the iPad. The animation was then imported into Final Cut where the final edit was made.

Twist Ninja was the first stop motion animation I ever wrote, animated, and edited to completion. It was shown on the big screen at the 2011 Taos Shortz film festival in Taos New Mexico.
The idea to use paper twist ties for the animation came form years of building figurines out of twist ties at local grocery stores and placing them in poses on displays to spice up the average shoppers day. I started doing it to see peoples reactions, but then I thought "Wouldn't it be cool if they could come to life" And thus Twist Ninja was born!
