Lady and the Sandwich Boy

I boarded a little side story of "LADY and the frog" as a storyboard sample. This is not in the film, but it has been stuck in my head while I was making "LADY and the frog" and I am glad to get it out of my system :).

The Domestic Goddess (working title) WIP stuff

These are WIP from a project I just started a little while ago as a portfolio piece. I am slowly flushing out my ideas. I am still trying things out and will be updating this constantly.

Some Designs just so I know who these characters are.

This is the story reel of one of the scenes at the location designed above, sort of an early/opening sequence.

I have not had the time to separate all the layers and put in the camera moves so these are just the storyboard panels roughly cut together. I hope the distinction between continuing panels and cuts are not too confusing.

In Her Shoe--Story Sample

I boarded another story about a girl and what is in her shoe.
This story focuses more on character interaction and has more dialogue.

Some Character Sketches so I know who I am drawing.
The grown up version of the heroin did not end up in the board.

The box

My first stop motion piece!
Made this in a stop motion class in 2012 summer.

BGM from Maoudamashii
I made everything else from scratch with help from my professor,
the school lab and my classmates.

Little suit jacket

A little suit jacket I sewed together for a collaborative project spring 2013, and my glove is modeling for me.

It is made from given pattern and materiel, part machine sewing and part hand sewing. All the edges have wire in it.

Personally I find the fabric on the thick side for something this small, but perhaps there is a reason for it. So far it has been a very interesting learning experience and I hope I will get better at it.

Marquette sculpture

I made these around summer 2011 as part of the character design process for my MFA thesis film "Lady and the Frog". Their models changed during the animation process, but the maquettes are still very useful for working out the design and as reference.
