“Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”
Hello, thanks for stopping by, don't forget to grab a glass of milk (or non-dairy) and cookies at the door. (lol)
Anywho...I'm Butch and I am a well educated Filmmaker, Photographer and Visual Effects Artist with my last Degree (Master's) being from NYU. I'm long on education and short on experience particularly my 3D animation and Visual Effects. I've been out of the field for a while and now I'm trying to work back in developing my own stories for niche audiences for the time being. I'm very much interested in working with models that can deliver reference photos for me to digitally sculpt Photorealistic characters, exotic creature characters and fully animatable stylized caricatures. If you're interested in being a muse for these types of creative projects I definitely want to here from you ASAP. I'm also interested in developing animated projects for performance art programs/installations so if you have an idea let's talk.
Just as a note I'm very interested in incorporating Black/Brown/Olive human features in many of the creature characters in the science-fiction/fantasy story I'm building currently, HOWEVER professional and attractive people with a look that will help to propel the look of a particular character take precedence.
I'm trying to start fresh after a self imposed hiatus to recharge and improve my understanding of human anatomy for digital sculpting purposes, but here's some old stuff I'll post links to. (Must update soon)
This is the final project I did for my Master's thesis at NYU. Not perfect, but it was a lot of hard work that I am proud of. It is supposed to be a bit of a tease to entice investers to to buy into the concept and pay for the production. If I ever get the investors I'll hire a writer and co-write the screenplay.
Short animation test for a project on hold that I'd like to restart ASAP. The story of this scene is that there is a Centurion that is an animated, shimmering metallic statue (think Jason and the Argonauts/Sinbad.) This character is scouting ahead for a large army...He sees a bird flying overhead that could only be the pet of the offender returning to it's master...the centurion is immediately is on the hunt and needs to descend into a deep valley to track the bird further and. He signals the army, a short distance away before descending into the ravine.
