Let's Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy!

Apparently it's "Trailer Week" on here, because here's another trailer for something I had a part of:

This is a book trailer for an interactive children's book by Jan Thomas. After NEST was put up and shared all over the web, Jan contacted me and asked if I could help create a trailer for her. And it was a heck lot of fun to do!

The animation was puppeted (with a few hand-drawn bits) in Flash using pieces of Jan's illustrations and compiled together with titles and images in AfterEffects. Jan gave me a lot of creative leeway when it came to the little bits the characters did throughout the trailer as well as the overall timing, which was really great! Overall, it was one of the most straight-forward  and happiest job experiences I've ever had, and I'm very proud of how it all  turned out.

Make sure to pick up a copy when it comes out later next month, either as a hard copy or an eBook for Kindles n' such through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes or whichever bookstore you prefer and visit frequently!

Adventure Babies is COMING!

Here's the sneak peek trailer for something I did a little animation on (Everything in the trailer and about 95% of the final short was animated by Josh Palmer, who is an insanely incredible animator). It's sure to be the beginning of something really fantastic, and I hope we have the chance to make more of 'em!

I'll post more about it when Episode #1 comes out, which should be really soon!
