What's New:

Deadpool and the Damsel

I recently upgraded my storyboarding software to the latest version and I saw this intimidating little button that says 3D.

I reimagined this interview originally produced by Great Big Story with some characters from the game as a tribute to the voice that is responsible for so many great childhood memories!  Read more about it on my blog.

Ferdinand the Bull - Blue Sky Studios

An early scene with Ferdinand and Lupe. 

Women with Drive - Shipsticks

The best of both worlds is when I can storyboard and direct. I helped co-direct this spot with my partner Skip Bowers, long time golf buddy and Ringling college roommate.
