Buncha stuff

It's been quite a while - but that's a result of keeping busy and moving!  Adam and I left Hoboken recently for a larger place in Jersey City.

The early stages of Burp's Christmas are underway... new site will be up in about a month and then fundraising efforts will begin full-force.  $200,000 is a lot to raise, but it's extremely bare-bones for an animated feature.  It's going to be a labor of love.  For regular updates, check out our production blog, to which I will be contributing from time to time.

Below are a few snippets of some of the projects I've been working on with my super awesome team at ATM.

Goldfish: Super Slugger Baseball
Our role: programming and animation - visit the arcade to play

Goldfish:  Lights! Camera! Action, Dudes! (Web Cartoons)
Our role: storyboarding, creation of new 3D assets/environments, animation & post for 4 new shorts - visit Goldfish Films to view

Pearson Education:  Culinary Cooking Methods

Our role: design, 3D, animation & programming

Pearson Education: Management:  A Focus on Leaders (promotional website for the book)
Our role: video production, site design & programming

We're also working on some mobile apps and touch screen kiosks. More on those in the future. Fun!

Scenarios USA

Just wrapped up judging for this year's Real Deal contest. The annual contest, run by Scenarios USA, fosters creativity in the areas of writing and filmmaking by encouraging teens to explore and express their views on masculinity.

Scenarios USA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that that uses writing and filmmaking to foster youth leadership, advocacy and self-expression in under-served teens. Scenarios USA asks teens to write about the issues that shape their lives for the annual "What's the REAL DEAL?" writing contest, and thousands have responded with their raw and revealing insights.

The winning writers are partnered with some of Hollywood's finest filmmakers to transform their stories into award-winning short films. 15 million people a year watch the Scenarios USA films at film festivals, on television and in high schools nationwide. Scenarios USA believes that by valuing youth and listening to their opinions we can have an impact on promoting healthy relationships and lowering the rate of HIV, STDs and pregnancy among teens.
