A second international trailer for "The Little Prince" has been released. With Japanese subtitles this trailer shows a bit more and introduces the voice and look of the mother character voiced by Rachel McAdams.

The renders are looking amazing, I'm so excited to see how this all came together in the end.

"The Little Prince" International Trailer

The International trailer for "The Little Prince" directed by Mark Osbourne has finally been released! Unfortunately for English speakers, it's in french but I'm assuming a English trailer will be released soon.

It's great to finally start to see trailers and promotional materials be released to the public, this movie was amazing to work on and hopefully it will be received well around the world.

Vancouver 2.0

(I spent a lot of time making this)

Back to the beautiful west coast city of Vancouver. After a year stint out 'east' in Montreal, my time at Mikros and on "The Little Prince" finished up and I have fortunately returned to Sony Pictures Imageworks to work on the "Angry Birds" movie directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly set to be released in 2016.

I had a great time in Montreal (even though half the year was covered in snow), and "The Little Prince" was amazing to work on.

Can't wait to post more "The Little Prince" and "Angry Birds" movie related posts on here!

Cloudy 2 Animation Reel

While being back home in Sydney on a short vacation, I've finally had enough time (and motivation) to put together the shots I did while at Sony Imageworks on "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" back in 2013.

Looking back at this amazing and fun project, I became all nostalgic with a permanent smile on my dial as I reminisced on the good times and great friends I made. Not to say it wasn't a challenging and or difficult show, but I have incredibly fond memories of the time spent working on this film.

Here is my reel:

Thanks for viewing :D

Sony Imageworks have released the animation test for "Popeye" directed by Genndy Tartakovsky on to their YouTube page.

Incredibly inspirational and insanely cartoony!

I'm so glad they decided to release this and hopefully it becomes a feature sometime in the near future!

Here's the first of many posts that will be "The Little Prince" related over the next several months as more and more start to become released.

A Japanese teaser (that can only be described as the teaser-iest of teasers) has been released. Showing one shot of the fantastic stop-motion work and one tiny slivered sampled section of a huge amazingly animated 3d shot done by Tania Simeons.

Here's the translation
Dear Le Petit Prince, where are you now, what are you doing? I miss you........(StopMo)....(CG).......Title: The Little Prince and Me.....brought by the original animation... to you... 2015 WINTER

There's a Man in the Woods

Haven't had the chance to post anything in a while but I felt I had to share this short film by Calarts Student Jacob Streilein entitled "There's a Man in the Woods". Thought provoking, intense and with perfectly themed music I really enjoyed this.

Cloudy 2 in your home!

Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2 is out on DVD and Blu-ray! Yay! By far the best and most rewarding project I've ever had the pleasure of working on. Go buy it now!

Cloudy 2 Deleted Scene

With the release of "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" on DVD and bluray EVEN SOONER THEN BEFORE, Sony have released a deleted scene.

Watch it here:

I'm super glad this was released as so much amazing work went into every shot of this movie, and even though it happens on every movie, its always hard to see such great work and gags get cut from the movie. I love Flint's puppetry arm waving at his dad, it was such a brilliantly executed gag. And the glimpse into Flint's OCD neurotic behavior when he fixes the remote on the table.

Cloudy 2 - Chester V featurette

With the release of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on DVD and bluray in a few weeks, Sony have released a short featurette about the movie's antagonist 'Chester V' with commentary from Senior Animation Supervisor Peter Nash.

Chester was one of the best characters I've ever had the pleasure of animating. The insane ideas we were able to get away with on this movie, made it a once in a life time experience for me.
