GNARLY GHOST SHORT FILM

AFTER SIGNING ON AS A DIRECTOR WITH MOSOMOS STUDIOS I WANTED TO MAKE A SHORT FILM SHOWCASING THE TECHNIQUES AND STYLE I WAS INTERESTED IN EXPLORING AS A DIRECTOR.

THE RESULTING SHORT TELLS THE STORY OF A REANIMATED SKELETON PURSUING SICK TRICKS INSTEAD OF EVIL. IT EMBODIES THE HOPE THAT OUR CREATIVE ENDEAVORS WILL BE RADICAL BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS, KICKFLIP OVER A PIT OF SERPENTS AND SKATEBOARD INTO THE NIGHT.

WE ENDED UP USING A NUMBER OF INTERESTING ANIMATION TECHNIQUES, FOR SEVERAL SEQUENCES WE INTEGRATED THE CHARACTERS INTO DIGITAL SETS TO HELP EXPAND THE WORLD BEYOND WHAT WE OTHERWISE HAD TIME FOR. CHECK OUT THE MAKING OF GNARLY GHOST AS WELL!

I BOARDED GNARLY GHOST ON A STACK OF POSTIT NOTES WHILE COMMUTING TO NICKELODEON, CHECK OUT THE BOARDS BELOW AND SEE HOW THEY STACK UP AGAINST THE FINAL FRAMES!
