These are gross and rough but I am posting them anyhow just because I want to show nearly everything I do on ym film so people can see the process I am going through. These are a few ideas I have been having. Hopefully you can follow along.

The beginning is to show how the rat has used the "traps" to his advantage by using a trap with cheese as a slingshot to shoot a piece of cheese/food into the air and catches it. he goes to take a bite when he hears the rumbling sound (of the exterminators truck coming) so he gets out of his hammock to investigate. he has to hop up boxes to get to the window, which i want to through up the idea of adding character in the climb as he stumbles to get up it. Then he approaches the window and looks out.. to the exterminator intro which i haven't boarded yet.

Then there is the chase scene where he is running away and nearly hit a trap and it flies in the air.. that is small (2 panels)

then is the end of the film, where the rat is climbing up the exterminator and the camera follows him. he has the "poison hose" from the exterminators backpack in his mouth in an attempt to eventually poison the exterminator. This is a tricky shot to tackle because i want the exterminator to be moving a bit too.

I am 100% sure I am going to have to rethink a lot of these ideas, but this is a start. Also, Expect a "film themed" blog coming soon. Woot!

So last school year I worked on a short film called 'Just Deserts' with Classy Ass Productions. It took all of 8 months and was a fanciful fun time. We ended up winning third place by the instructors of our program of all of the films out of the year though their were plenty of outstanding candidates. It was recently uploaded on the Youtube thanks to Kyu.

Check-er out or click HERE for the Hi-Res version.

I am responsible for animation scenes at 0:24, 0:54, 1:33, 2:33,2:44, 3:36 and 3:41

I am picking up good vibrations about a new film idea.

I have been struggling with the fact that I have two films I love and need to pick one for this year. I will be posting more concept stuff from both ideas very soon, including art. I can't wait to post some of my doodles and ideas (mostly character stuff). Anyone browsing by I would love to hear your input on these two ideas.

The one some of you know. It is a gritty, horror parody including a rat against a Jason style exterminator.
The second is about a gawky teen trying to pick up hot girls with his less than perfect surfing skills.

More soon. (UPDATE: MORE NOW)

Rat film stuff:

Surf film stuff:

Sketch dump stuff:

This last one comes from me applying for a 'comic' job this summer and being complimented saying my style was too Disney. I decided to take a step simpler to see if I can do a comic style anyway and this is what turned out.
