Wayne The Stegosaurus


Wayne the Stegosaurus: A Motionpoems Animated Short
from The Mill on Vimeo.


Enjoy Wayne's deluded yet charming sense of the world that he lives in and hopefully you'll receive some affection and good times out of it.
I was fortunate enough to co-direct this vid with Aran Quinn for The Mill Plus  and Motionpoems offered us to contribute to their 2014 film festival. We choose the Poem, Wayne the Stegosaurus by Kenn Nesbitt to make a short animation to. brilliant fun bringing Arans illustrations into a 3D world that we created while keeping the handmade cel look dominant.

Also, Wayne the Stegosaurus is featured on the Mill blog. He is also quite popular elsewhere on the internet, having been today's Staff Pick on Vimeo, being featured on Creative ReviewMotionographer, io9, Creative Planet Network, and Creative Inspiration. He has gotten close to 37K hits on our Vimeo page.... and rising. 



Jameson's "Iron Horse" named 2013 Top Five VFX/Animation


So SHOOT posted this chart, naming Jameson, Iron Horse #3 for 2013's VFX spots!  Pretty cool!
Also of note, PETA's "99%" was #1.  Both done here at the Mill NY.
