An App I worked on Launched today!

When I was interning at Disney Consumer Products I animated a lot on Read with Doc Mcstuffins: Letters and Sounds. It was originally under the Imagicademy branding but may have changed due to it being terminated last year. Here is a short reel with some of the animations I did for the app, this is only a small sample of what I animated and does not include animation that I revised or animation that had more then myself working on it. Big thanks to my old team, and I hope you enjoy!

My Animation Internship was Extended to a Year!

Here is some released Animation from my Internship with DCPI (Frozen Science & Mickeys Space Math Games). The shots in this reel are from games that have been released on the market. All Audio and animation I am showing has been approved to show.



This is only a portion of the work I have been able to work on with DCPI, although a large portion of the work I do involves working on shots that have had many hands involved so I have chosen to only show some of the better work that I animated 100% of.

I animated all of these shots myself. Many of these shots are from my current Internship with Disney Consumer Products as an Animation Intern for the new Disney Imagicademy branch, part of Disney Learning.

Final Angelo Shot with reference and pushed poses


Here is a more polished version of my latest shot. I worked on polishing and eye trace so that the viewer would have an easier time tracking the characters movements by smearing the Rig. I was able to accomplish this with a few Squash and Stretch techniques.

Here are a few of my favorites in the shot. 




Here is the original reference so that you can see how far the shot has come from the original idea
