"It's Alive"
Work Journal

In May 2002, I began teaching character design, storyboarding and animation for the Computer Animation program at Seneca College in Toronto, Ontario.

In order to fully understand the outcomes that the students were to have, I was given the opportunity to take the Maya course over the summer of 2002.

This allowed me to finally produce a film that I have been wanting to complete for the past 15 years. During my time at Sheridan College I had neither the time or support to do this. What I want to show here, in these pages is the results of the 16 week course. Hopefully it will give you some insights into what the course and program are all about. You might even want to come out to the college to visit and take a look around.

Below are the links to the various stages that I went thorough in the course as well as the production of the film. I hope you have fun looking around.
