    This is my Junior Degree Project that I worked over the Spring semester at RISD. I got the original concept of creating a cutout animation for art made with a single sheet of paper and the stratastencil technique.

    I wanted the animation to have a dream like quality exploring the reality and space in which the dream exists and felt that the cutout technique fit this idea. Color was another consideration that I built into the design of the animation to help enhance the dreamlike qualities of the film. From here the idea grew and as I did studies involving birds, umbrellas, water, trees, and other things I was able to refine my idea and break it down to find the core essentials of the film.

    Once I had my subject matter down and I was able to start animating. Most of the animation is hand drawn (the tree was drawn by hand then animated in Adobe After Effects). Once I had the animation drawn, I filled it all in with black marker, shot it, and brought it into Adobe After Effects and ran an auto trace on it to create that cutout effect.

    To create the final look of the film, I started with a basic mockup frame that I used to make rough style frames and an animatic with. Later applying the animation over the animatic to create a fine cut, while using it to do render tests and get a feel of how the workflow was going to work out. From there I made the final frame and created 7 colored backings for it, which I swapped out while hanging the frame in different places on the wall. I lit the frame to give it the shadows in the image and used these pictures later, compositing them together so that they were all hanging on the wall at the same time.

    After that it was matter of compositing in all the animation, adding a drop shadow to the paper to make it flow better with the look and feel of the frame, and lots of rendering.

    For the sound I partnered with a student from the Berklee School of Music in Boston named John Nolan. I explained to him what I was looking for and through different sound tests and experiments he was able to narrow down specific instruments to use. With every edit to the sound I would provide some notes, feedback and things I thought would help add to the sound as well as strengthen the animation. John took those ideas and applied them with other elements to create a really beautiful final soundtrack.

    All of this came together over a 12 week period to create this final film. Feel free to comment and enjoy!

  2. As a in house test case, we created a unique physical 3D video mapping experience by turing a white living room into a spacious 360° projection area. This technique allowed us to take control of all colors, patterns and textures of the furniture, wallpapers and carpet. All done with 2 projectors.

  4. "The Particle" is a kinetic sculpture that experiments with color, sound and movement. Around the space occupied by the sculpture defines a surround sound system that reacts and becomes one with the movement and light.

    LYRICS ---------------------------------------- ------------------

    Your heart that gently reflects in the puddle
    is your tone, as you pass through the maze of everyday

    Footsteps of spring
    the city starts adding color
    The melody flowsLE LU LA LI
    Through the colored lenses

    ReggaeDubHiphopTechnoLatin
    Between the waves of all the different values

    Whats the most important thing?

    Spinning and turning on the overpass
    as we overtake that season
    this and that, which color is your melody?
    Sometimes you could get confused

    What are you thinking of now?

    If we can embrace all the differences
    It will shine the sky in rainbow colors
    Your heart that gently reflects in the puddle
    is your tone, as you pass through the maze of everyday

    You can see it in any color, because of your clear feeling
    Dont worry about it, lets just go as we are.
    If we can embrace all the differences
    The rain will stop, and the sky will shines in rainbow colors

    Your heart that gently reflects in the puddle
    is your tone, as you pass through the maze of everyday
    You can see it in any color, because of your clear feeling
    Let your tone shine like the rainbow

    Pass through the maze of everyday
    And start playing your tone
