2016 Stop Motion DEMO REEL

I put together a demo reel showcasing my work in recent years. It's been a while since I've done this and it's kind of cool to be able to see all the various styles edited together in one video! Special shout out to my favorite composer John Dixon for The Inventor proof of concept score I'm using here. It's really awesome to be able to hear this isolated from the sound design of the trailer. So, I suggest watching the animated reel then going back and rewatching with your eyes closed to fully immerse yourself in the sound. Check out his other work here: www.manybirthdays.net Oh and hire me if you need fantastic animation!

Life on Paper - Postpartum

Birth is a crazy thing. Now, what happens after birth is also quite intense. In episode 3 of Life on Paper we take a look at the postpartum period and Alicia's recovery from a very dramatic birth experience and c-section. Also, the shock of being parents starts to set in.

WHAT'S NEW WITH ERIC?

Hey everyone!
I wanted to take a moment to write a quick update about the goings on here in the studio.  I am about to launch a HUGE campaign to begin production on my second feature animated film; The Inventor!  This one is VERY different from Path of Blood and is a project I've been wanting to make for almost 10 years.  I will discuss it in more detail soon, so look for news on it!
 In Path of Blood news, I am happy to say I am working with a distributor to get the film a proper release on Blu Ray and other digital platforms.  I worked on a ton of bonus content for the film, such as an in depth making of documentary as well as a commentary track.  I'm crazy excited to share it all with you, but it's still a little ways off.
I have also been working with a team from California on something very big, but that's all I can say about it at this time... :O
My latest animated content is, of course, my continuation of the Life on Paper series (see below post).  I'm quite fond of it, so give it a look! 
Check back soon.  2016 is going to be incredible!  Oh, I had a son three days ago too! :D
