(2018) Ringling College of Art and Design
'Tiffanys' is my senior short film produced at Ringling College of Art & Design. For this project I partnered with two other students, Sean Esser and Caitlin Chiusano to develop an original story about a planet conquering alien who mistakes a high school queen Bee as queen of Earth, into a 5 minute CG animated short.
I was responsible for a bit of everything from storyboarding to rendering but I focused my efforts in lighting/compositing.
Software: Maya, Arnold, Nuke X, Substance Painter, ZBrush, Photoshop, Premiere
This is a color script that I was tasked with creating for my thesis short film. It was used as a guide for lighting the film and shows the progression of tone throughout the sequences.
Software: Photoshop, Nuke
'This is a personal project I tackled. I wanted to challenge my lighting and compositing skills by integrating a CG element into a live action video.
I was responsible for all aspects of this project, from filming the initial video, camera tracking, creating the HDRI, lighting the food truck and compositing it all in Nuke.

DRAGON BALL SELF CARICATURE
(2017) Ringling College of Art and Design
This was an assignment at Ringling where we were tasked with creating a 3D self-caricature. One of my all-time favorite anime series is Dragon Ball so I thought it would be fun to play with the idea of putting myself into that world. Here I play a grocery store cashier who is a bit too invested in the hunt for the seven Dragon Balls.
I was responsible for all aspects of this project but focused on the compositing and layout of the first half of it in order to really get that anime feeling.
Software: Maya, Renderman, Nuke, ZBrush, Photoshop, Premiere.
