Animations at Hot Docs film festival

My animations for the the documentary PREY (2019) premiered this weekend at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. The film won two major awards: DGC Special Jury Prize and the Rogers’ Canadian Audience Choice Award!  I created 20 animations (rotoscoping and 2.5D parallax techniques) over 3 months and I’m super excited to finally share them with you all.

You can catch the screening at TIFF Lightbox in Toronto this week!

Thankful to dir. Matt Gallagher, prod. Cornelia Principe, and ed. Nick Hector (I wasn’t able to catch a flight to my lovely Toronto for the premiere as I’m teaching on the weekends but here is an awesome photo of the team 🤗🇨🇦)

University of Toronto wall art

Soo honored to have a permanent art piece at University of Toronto! This project for UofT has been 1 year in the making, and it feels incredible to see it come to life. The University approached me to illustrate for a new donor wall, featuring the historical Skule House. The art was then etched onto a large scale 3.0x 2.6 meter metallic surface, now up in the Engineering building atrium. If you pass by 55 St George Street, do check it out on the 5th floor : ).

Guest Lecture at FAMU University, Prague

Had a blast presenting at FAMU University this weekend on Contemporary Artistic Animation in Practice, specifically on the rotoscoping technique and freelancing as an animator. Still digesting the beauty of Prague and walking the halls of 5th oldest film school in the world…
