The Sheik and I Animations

As I mentioned yesterday, I have been busy working on the documentary feature The Sheik and I. It's interesting in that the director wanted to animate a lot of audio that he recorded but didn't have footage for. In a way, the scenes I am animating are a form of "animated documentary" which is something I think I want to explore further on my own. But to give you an example of some of the work I've been doing I am posting this clip, which is a conversation between the director, Caveh Zahedi, and his lawyer.

SXSW 2012

My poor, neglected blog. This is my first post of 2012, but I have good news to share. The feature documentary film The Sheik and I which features my animation has been selected by SXSW in the documentary competition. Very exciting for a number of reasons. First being, this is the first feature film I've ever contributed my animation to. And second, the first feature film that has animation shot entirely with an iPhone (to my knowledge). More info below. If you are in Austin this March please take in a screening!
