I'm a NYC-based 3D Generalist with 10+ years experience as a CG Animator for TV commercials, films, music videos, video game cinematics and more! This is my latest demo reel featuring my skills as a 3D modeler, animator, rigger, and lighter.
I was the CG lead for this photorealistic CG sneaker project created for Nike's main website featuring the debut of their new Free 5.0, 4.0, and 3.0 sneakers, produced at HUSH Studios. I personally 3D modeled and textured the Free 5.0 and 3.0. I helped manage a fantastic team of 3D Artists in completing the assets for 6 photorealistic sneakers, and also contributed to animation, and lighting at various stages to deliver a very complex deliverables package to allow for interactivity to show the simulated barefoot running flexibility of the Free series.

Working with a photo-real, 3D-animated goldfish as the star of your indie film is no easy feat. Fort Lee, N.J., filmmaker Roger An spent years perfecting his hybrid computer-generated/live action short, using two home computers and a shoestring budget. A 3D animator by trade, Roger also wrote, directed, and acted in the 9-minute comedy. His efforts have paid off with 2018 season acceptances into 11 film festivals with screening locations across the U.S. and internationally, and more to be announced soon!
“Alpha Fish” is about a feisty pet goldfish named Rodrigo (voiced by Lou Mann) and his hapless owner, Conner (Roger An). Beautiful marine biologist Bianca (Amber Dickerson) enters the scene and changes everything.
The World Premiere of "Alpha Fish" was on Wednesday January 31, 2018 at 7 PM at the New Ohio Theatre located at 154 Christopher Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets in New York City.

I was tasked with creating character rigs for a literal ARMY of monsters in this video game cinematic for Cartoon Network's Fusion Fall MMO at Freestyle Collective.
I also skinned weights for many of the hero characters like the player avatars, and Dexter of Dexter's Lab fame. I contributed to modeling props like the laser weapons, teleportation portal, and making sculpting adjustments to Dexter.
I 3D Modeled this Hoover Cyclonic Vacuum in Maya, for a TV commercial produced at SuperFad. This was done with the product in-person, and no CAD file. I took high resolution digital photographs of the vacuum to get accurate image planes as reference, and completed the model in under 5 days.
I exported the completed vacuum model from Maya to SoftImage XSI, for the SuperFad team to complete lighting.
I 3D rigged all the characters in this fun music video for Yo Gabba Gabba at Panda Panther. Also took care of the 3D fur on the cat.
I 3D modeled, textured and lit the photorealistic 3D Lebron James 3 Sneaker for a NIKE web product video at Stardust. This was done with the product in-person, photo reference and no CAD file.
I was VFX Supervisor on this Drake's Lil Abe commercial working with Nick Woythaler and Them.tv to create a completely CG Yodel Log Cabin to replace green screen

For this Virgin Broadband commercial produced at Golden Lucky, I did all the 3D modeling, animation, lighting, and layout for the backgrounds behind Samuel L. Jackson over 3 weeks. I worked with a lighting specialist to develop shaders, and an excellent team of compositors to deliver the final result.
I 3D modeled the furniture & props for all the interiors and some patio furniture for these house planets on a project for Hornet Inc. I also did some camera animation.

I was the CG Supervisor for the 5 second 3D Marionettes section of this Dish Network commercial for the production company: Wee Beastie. I 3D Modelled & Rigged the Marionettes, and lead a fantastic 3D team of my good friends and colleagues: Eugen Sasu (Character Animation), Christian Day (3D Lighting/Shading/Dynamics), & Aaron Ray-Crichton (Render Farm Services). I also helped with planning / budgeting / scheduling of the CG Marionettes section.
