Animation Reel

Selection of works I had the opportunity to create and direct. Looking forward to update this compilation soon. :>)


Microsoft Anti-Bullying GIFs

Partnering with folks from Edelman we created GIFs for teens to speak out against cyberbullying. The animations were uploaded to Giphy website which feeds the most popular messenger platforms. Kids can use these to speak up, be a friend and turn negativity into positivity during National Bullying Prevention Month and beyond.


Mime Academy

Virtual reality is on the rise, but no one has made use of the ridiculous arm gestures people make while using a VR headset. Mime Academy puts those arms to use, but teaching you how to become a mime.


Collins

Animations for a design proposal I made in my time freelancing with the talented folks from Collins.

Gamers want to play more and wait less on-line. On a busy game convention wouldn't be different.

Also shot...

Apple's "Shot on iPhone 6" campaign consists of beautiful photographs taken with iPhones. The campaign's only flaw is that it ignores the most common type of photos iPhone users take: unflattering ones. We set out to solve that problem by installing our own satirical versions of the ads around San Francisco. Within 24 hours of launching the Tumblr, the project received global attention and media coverage.


Google Cloud

I was invited by friends from ElevenInc to help develop a series of concepts/characters for a Google Cloud campaign. Working closely with Buck, we turned my sketches into polished 3D illustrations. This was a fun one.

Doritos - Bold Emojis

Our challenge was to create a light content that catches people attention in the middle of the Facebook time-line chaos. We then created the Doritos Bold Emojis.Taking advantage of Facebook auto-play video feature, we were able to surprise people connecting regular emojis with animated bodies.

When the Blue Angels came to town for San Francisco Fleet Week, my buddy Pablo (the talented actor on this video) and I decided to shoot a little goofy video.
