My first demo reel of school project animations and films from UMBC; 2013 through 2016

My Senior Project from Fall 2016. I created a build in Maya and animated it. I will be developing this animation further.

I created a self portrait in Maya and lip-sync’d animated myself as a Luchador.

School Films Portfolio

My School Films Portfolio highlights some of the many films I was able to create while attending UMBC for my Visual Arts Degree in Animation/Interactive Media.

I found myself going well beyond the assignment parameters, pushing the limits of my knowledge after receiving instruction the specific syllabus unit.

One observation in this regard, something shared among all the students, is there was never enough time to take a project to its fullest completion.

Pre-Planning was one of the most important lessons to be learned from this.
