Bus Sequence Stills

I've been making great progress on my thesis, and it's exciting to see everything start to come together! My friends Zach and Pat have been doing an incredible job on making my shots look polished, and without their help, my film wouldn't look nearly as good as it is. Very happy with the turn out!

Pug Study

We had to pick an animal to study for our animal drawing class. I like pugs, and I'd like to own one someday, so it was the best pick for me. I'm going to paint it in photoshop, and I'll post that version once it's done, which should be sometime later this week. Good night!

Page Museum Drawings

I drew these today during my animal drawing class. These were fun studies! I realized later that the bison skeleton's head wasn't going to fit, so I did a detailed study of his head below it... lol

Process and First Completed Shots

Mom Sees Bus Coming from Dante Buford on Vimeo.

I was curious to see how far I've come from my storyboard version of this shot, to the final composited one. I slightly alter the angle and zoomed out the view, which I think gave it a better looking composition. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the final look. These are the first couple of shots that my good friend Zach Wong helped me complete last weekend. Hope you like them!

Struggling to support her small family, a pessimistic single Mom, accompanied by her two young children, makes her way to an important job interview that will hopefully change her family's circumstances. Along the way, however, a vindictive Sexy Woman discovers that she is competing against the Mom for the same job, and stops at nothing to sabotage her. Luckily, her children are there to foil the Sexy Woman's plan.

Yes, "Sexy Woman" is her real name. Sorry her character isn't depicted in this image. I'll upload some screen shots featuring her soon.

Thesis Backgrounds

I want to kick off my first post with some backgrounds from my animated short film, "Interview". Done in Flash CS5.

I'll post some animation and final screen shots soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy these!
