I made this animation for my family and friends this holiday season. It was really nice to work on something purely just for fun! The characters were drawn in flash and the background is a cut paper pop up card. At work, Untravel Media, we just finished creating a tour of historic beacon hill that can be downloaded for iphone and ipod - Walking Cinema: Murder on Beacon Hill I worked on the videos, animations, and objects/props that are hidden along the walking route. One of the objects was a popup book, and is what got me so into cut paper construction. I definitely want to continue exploring the possibilties of paper animation.
I also think I need to keep making things just for fun, so thats my New Year's resolution. Make something cool every week and share it on this blog. It definitely helps that me and my friends have built a kick ass art studio in the basement of my house in Malden...Studio 42. Stay tuned.

Well it's been almost a year since my last post and a lot has happened. I've been working hard as a video producer and animator at Untravel Media in Boston, this takes up alot of my time but still no excuse for an entire year without blogging. At Untravel we create multimedia videos for to be watched on mobile technology in specific locations. To get a better idea of what I'm talking about check out our latest project for the New England Aquarium. It's called Blue Impact and its a series of videos about climate change and its impact on ocean life. Go to: http://www.neaq.org/visit_planning/tours_and_programs/tours/index.php
