Some of you may know; Petra and I are considering moving to Denver, Colorado. This past weekend we took brief trip there to scout it out. See some family and friends and get a general idea of what it might be like to live there for a bit. See the photos HERE.
My latest venture into the world of green screen, 3D modeling and animation comes in the form of an instructional video for work called “Call Centers of the Future!” All the footage was shot in the new studio downtown. We rented a vintage switchboard from an amazing place called Zap Props here in Chicago who […]

England will always be dearest […]
This latest animation was a collaboration with a fellow animator named Patrick Cheng of CatTrigger.com who did a great job bringing our piggybank to life.

It’s not that often when I’m working on a new project that I have a smile on my face, but during the filming for this one and subsequent post production work, I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself constantly. A special shout out to Brian Shumaker for an incredible job bringing Figaro’s voice to life.
