The Inventor Production Diaries

I am in production on a short scene from my (hopeful) upcoming feature animated film, The Inventor.  My team and I are hoping to showcase a beautiful segment of the film in an effort to secure funding for the film proper.  I am posting regular production diaries talking about the process and will be adding them here as they are released.  Check em out, and thanks for supporting independent animation!

Red Pill - Stars

A traveling sword for hire finds himself in larger than life adventures. Unfortunately, the pay doesn't measure up. An allegory for the freelance lifestyle.

The Friar and the Pea - The Life and Legacy of Gregor Mendel

My wife and I collaborated on an animated biography of Gregor Mendel and his contribution to science. It was a fun project that we managed to make really quickly. I'd love to make more pieces in this vein.

UPDATE: Life on Paper

I recently edited together all the episodes of Life on Paper into one 35 minute long short film. I have always intended this project to eventually become a feature length memoir/documentary on the pregnancy, birth, and first year of our daughter Lily's life. This block represents the half way mark. I hope to one day be able to finish the rest of the story. I am biased, but I feel it gets pretty good. Right now, enjoy this first part. I welcome any feedback. I, personally, feel like I can make it tighter and there's a lengthy list of things I'd like to tweak. It's an evolving film at this point, but I'm fond of it. Thanks for watching!
