Thing i did for robot day on newgrounds
Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode. Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall. We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.
I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time.
The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved. The rest of the drawings I did came through though! Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.
Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots. The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings. It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked. I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.
If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future. For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.

Life after Pi
*sigh* I just want a house, a dog, and a middle class life….
The thing that frustrates me, It doesn’t have to be this way. It just is because misinformation and “behind the scenes” like this one. Convinces everyone that technology does it all. They pay actors Millions of dollars when that money could easily go towards providing animators fair pay and hours.
