More Oldies From 'The Vault'

Hey all, putting 'Frog Family' up online inspired me to get up some more old animations for the world to see! First, after much begging and pleading from so many people, I have finally put up 'Happiness,' The film that took me over 2 years to make and was my first collaboration with Robert Litton. Its about a small woodland animal that falls in love with a stuffed moose head. It's 13 minutes so it's up in 2 parts.

This is definitely a film where I bit off more than I could chew and you can understand how, after this, I really embraced short shorts like Critter Song, Frog family and Fox & Calf. Below is the 'Making Of' that shows the animation process as well as the scoring by Litton.

Next, a handful of environmental commercials I did for the cities of Vacaville and Rohnert Park between 2002 and 2005. You can see we are trying very hard to make recycling sound interesting enough to get the point across in 30 seconds. These all feature Rob Broadhurst very prominantly doing his voice work.

Hope you enjoyed those. That's it for now, should have more up soon, will try to be better at posting from now on.
