1. In April 2010 a massive oil spill began in the Gulf. The entire country was glued to the news until the well was capped, and then we forgot about it.

    As the year anniversary was approaching I became curious, just how much oil was that exactly? Where would it have gone? What I found was shocking.

    So in an effort to further our discussion on oil dependency I created this short animation to help illustrate just how dependent we truly are on oil.

    UPDATE: A few people have mentioned strange things with the audio. I've changed a couple audio settings and hope it fixes any problem people may have had.

  2. For school (VFS), we had to make a Title Sequence and I decided to make the movie of my life (so far we just have the title sequence :P) and its everything in boxes and circles... It took me a lot of work... there is thousands of key frames made in after effects...

  5. JESS3’s longtime content partners at Mindjet wanted a carefully crafted visual story to complement their product relaunch. Partnering closely with Mindjet, JESS3 crafted a script that was not limited to one brand, one profession or even one industry. Building off the idea of "work inspired" JESS3 created a fantastical world to tell the story of a worn out worker in a growing, global environment.
