I could have started posting individual shots of this here earlier but, I decided to wait till all the shots were completed and assembled into a nice compilation. This pterodactyl is for a film being made by Peter A. Montgomery called 'The Omega Device' and we decided to release my animation for the film early so as to boost interest in the project.

Peter build the puppet and did all the video effects compositing, all I had to do was push the puppet and I'm really thrilled with the way it came out...

What's old is what's new... Peter took one of the shots I animated that you've already seen an recomposited it into a new setting and lighting situation and I think it looks AWESOME!...

I'm just happy that you ARE getting the work, and making it on stop motion. I just try to keep tolerating the work I'm doing, so sick of paying dues, wasting talent to make a few measly bucks. Forgive me, please, it's the middle of the season, all my waking hours spent on painting or waiting for the next ice cream eating hedonist to deem it worthy enough for me to paint a shark on their brat's t shirt...Arrrrghhhhh! I'm such a spray-jerk!

Well if it's any consolation, when those "brat's" show up in class on Monday morning I get to have a nice conversation about the shops on the boardwalk and great whites and all the good and bad. Then later it might come up again when they're journaling. 7 & 8 year olds keep no secrets. Those shirts do make connections. Sometime so that we ask the kid to toss it in with the wash once in a while;) Once a boy  wearing an air brushed race semi-truck-shirt blurts out ''My uncle and dad set the Guinness land speed record on the salt flats. I responded with something dismissive like, sure kid, sure kid. Then he says, "want me to bring the video?" ...sure as shit they set the record in this massive streamlined semi. I just had to smile.

Yes, I like it a lot with those awesome rocks behind it.
