Zebtoonz DVDs

Well, I went and did it! I compiled some of my animations together on two half hour DVDs and got some copies made. These are for distribution at film festivals that a friend of mine will be hosting over the coming weeks. The first one has my three Parables and all six Tiny Bible Treasures. Volume two is stuff like Wide Mouth Toad, Little Pebble, Construction Crew. They look very nice.

I often wondered what I was gonna do with my animations. People would ask me and I'd say, "Um, I dunno! I'm just learning and having fun!" Since then it has become part of my regular freelance work and has led to some exciting possibilities. If I had it my way, I'd quit cartooning and just be animating.

2011 Demo Reel

Here's my latest demo reel from some of the stuff I worked on last year. I've learned a lot and there is still so much more to learn, but at least I'm having lots of fun doing it! This past year I graduated from Animate Pro to Harmony and have been very happy with all the new features. I think I have come to the realization that animation is a lot like mountain climbing. It's a lot of hard work and difficulty along the way but once you reach the top and finish your work, there is nothing like it!
