Nike baseball commercials

I did this animation for a series of Nike Japanese spots a number of years ago for Natterjack Animation Studios. It hasn't improved my game or my Japanese any.

Nick Blob in 3D

Sorry - it's a bit blurry. This was done for International Rocketship for a 3D show for Nickelodeon, (you'll need your 3D glasses for the full effect, kids). It also came in handy for inbetweening assignments. I did the designs, story & animation in the middle. The late, great Paul Boyd did the animation for the beginning & end.

testing 1, 2, 5...

Time to try the video function. I figured out how to shoot pencil tests on my lap-top by shooting with the built in web-cam and editing in After Effects, (do I sound like a geek or what), so now I can shoot line tests while on the top of Mount Rushmore, (if I so desire). This is a cycle from the Sesame Street bit that I posted designs of earlier. This one isn't at colourful, but it moves more. There's always a trade-off.

Here it is in color, but now it's blurry and there's no sound. Why can't I get it right?
