I love Dave's Killer Bread. Not just because its a tasty product, but because each type of bread has a different character on the label, my favorite being powerseed. Inspired by this, I naturally had to animate it.

Animation is mine.
Character design and logo belong to Dave's Killer Bread.

Nazi Invasion Plans - Animatic from Nawbeman on Vimeo.

After the attack on Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, Americans realized that they were not as far removed from the war across the sea as they thought. In fact, it was quite possible for them to lose this war. In February of 1942, a science fiction novelist by the name of Philip Wylie published an article on the possibilities of losing the War. in response, Life Magazine created a set of maps, detailing the routes and battle plans the Nazi's might use to invade the U.S.

My goal on this project was to bring these maps to life through animation while holding on to the style and illustrative quality of the original. I wanted to really visualize what this invasion would look like and change it from arrows on a map, to an advancing army on the march.
The original maps, as they appeared in Time Magazine:

A project for my Type in Motion class at Cornish College of the Arts, Junior year. The assignment was to create a 5 second transition between two opposite words. I got Simple and complex, so this is what I produced. Done in Cinema 4D and composed in AfterEffects.

This was the final project for my Type In Motion class at Cornish College of the Arts, Junior year. The assignment was to take the 7 deadly sins and create a type piece displaying those qualities. My idea was to relate the words to different parts of the city (Lust: a strip club, Pride: a football stadium, etc.) and have the words, personified as beings relating their corresponding sin. Done using C4D & Aftereffects.

This was a test render for a North West Film Forum spot intended to introduce what the company does. Seeing as the purpose of the company is to promote and nurture small independent films, my idea was to build a movie projector one piece at a time. Done with Cinema 4D.
