BREAKDOWN:

1. "Outgrow" Short Film

Watch online here!

Selected for TAAFI (Toronto Animation Arts Festival International) and Florida Animation Festival.

Outgrow is a film I directed about growing up, and growing out of the place you once called home. 8 SVA Computer Arts students collaborated while in quarantine to create this film, battling against the odds to make something we could all be proud of. Created by Ollie Yao, Mav Vitale, Westine Leung, Ben Meyer, Heather Yun, Deniz Mani, Alex Yun and Kaitlin Yu.

2. Medieval Meadow Environment Model:

Modeled in Maya, textured in Substance Painter, rendered in Blender Cycles. Vegetation created in Houdini.

3. Stylized Fire:

Simulated in Houdini, composited in Nuke. Proof of concept test for my upcoming thesis film.

4. "The Devil" 3D Illustration:

Rendered in Blender. Tarot card rendered with the Parallax Occlusion Mapping node plugin in Blender created by Anton Neveselov. Original illustration was created by me as a present for my Dungeons and Dragons group.

5. "The Broken Egg":

Modeled in Maya, textured in Substance Painter, rendered in Blender Cycles. A moody neon-bathed environment model of a sweet, janky little diner.

6. "Your Favorite Sidekick":

An animated music video created in Houdini. I used the beat of the music to animate various elements. I learned a lot about particle FX and rigid body simulations! Music is "Your Favorite Sidekick" by underscores feat. 8485.
