I like to maintain this page as an archive of work I've done over the years, an ongoing portfolio.

Animated Short

Fall 2018
This year I've been working on a youtube video series using Character Animator & After Effects. Character Animator has been a godsend in creating the lip syncing for the characters. After Effect is still the best option for creating the scenes. The entire process of creating the animation took about 4 months of part time work, that was after 2 months to create the characters in photoshop and then build them in Character animator. Now that the characters are created it'll be easier to knock out new episodes. Each episode requires a script, audio scratch track, lip syncing, animations, music & sound effects, editing, and then publishing, so it takes a hot minute to do all of the above on my free time.
Super Craps
Mobile Game
Chickywicky LLC
Spring 2018
I started this app in late 2017 and released it in the Spring of 2018. Super Craps is a free casino craps game I made from scratch in Unity for android, available now from the play store. I really didn't like the existing craps games on the play store so I made my own. I coded Super Craps to have the closest thing to true craps odds in a game, using physics instead of random number generators to create realistic dice rolls and outcomes. Ads are limited, gameplay is fast, and includes quick bets if you play the game bets over and over again.

Quick animated short using after effects for the creating multimedia class I taught at La Salle University in Fall of 2017. This was the 2 characters one scene assignment, this was the demo I created for the class to show off what is possible with the lessons taught in class throughout the year using stock after effects.

3D Animated Short

Spring 2017
Played around with the process of modeling and animating in blender, using character animator and a custom coded tool to do the lip sync, and finally Unity 3D to render the end result to create a 3D animated series aimed at kids. The process is a little too involed because creating the 3d scenes required too much time lip syncing the characters, even with my lip sync tool to help reducde that time. The end result is good and I like using Unity as a render engine but it was very time consuming and Unity keeps evolving. I may come back to this idea in the future. I made 2 total episodes.
Year Off
Year of 2016
In 2016 I moved to a new home and took time off developing games and animations to concentrate on getting the new place up to our liking. I created a new company called Chicky Wicky LLC to use for publishing games and animations. I worked on a number of game concepts and ideas, worked on various prototypes but didn't release any games or animations. I made some info graphics and wrote a couple posts on medium.com to highlight the scale of the over-saturation of the app stores.
