This is a work in progress for a potential olympic commercial; a project undertaken during our senior year at San Jose State. There are still many things to sweeten and add into this piece, but it's prep work for this project shows a promising end result. Team Awesomeness, the muscle behind the work is broken down to the following elements:

Sean Petrilak (Muah) - Storyboards, Directing
Scott LaFleur - Animation
Jon Mendez - Environment and Prop Design
Derek Brand - Character Design and Research
Jesse Warren - Maya Modeling Master

You can find everyone except Jesse in my link list. They're going to kill me for putting it up at this stage, but the publicity couldn't hurt them (being that they're recent grads). I'm changing the stadium colors to match our color key and adding some more elements in the scene, such as the crouwd and animating some female olympic gymnasts in the foreground in the beginning. Oh yeah, the sound. Most of these things like the bad sound effects are placeholders for the final. Enjoy!

Mom and I were painting outside by Tina's koi pond. She had her oils and was having a fun time, so I had to bring out the tablet.

This is the greatest thing I have ever done and ever will do. Just take the shrunken headman sticker and cut out the negative spaces. As you can see, The stitching is hard to cut. I did this a little over a week ago.
