FOOD AND FALLOUT rough sketches

My personal favorite of the 4 episodes of the Z-FILES, is the 4th one. I am really hoping to get started on some new episodes in the new year.

WIND DIRECTION rough sketches

Episode 3 of THE Z-FILES was the most complex. It had the most cuts, the most scenes, the most BG's, and the most characters.

WONDERFUL SIGHT rough sketches

Yep, this is all the sketches for episode 2 of my animated shorts. All I needed was this to go ahead and start animating. The whole episode is one single medium shot, with very understated animation and lip sync.

Awful Gas rough sketches

It is less than a couple of weeks away from the Ottawa International Animation Festival. My web cartoon series, THE Z-FILES, will be screening at the festival. Here are the scribbles that I did for the first episode, AWFUL GAS. On the bottom right, you can see that my original idea was to have the lady mutate into a plant like creature, it was my tribute to LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. I ended up not going with the plant and instead had her mutate into a multiple eyed octopus type creature.
