The Diner at the Center of the Earth

A diner at the center of the earth.  That's what I started with for my final student film, which I will share here soon.  It'll be a little while to do some color correction and prepare the video for internet upload.
So, I finished my film, and it'll be screening in the Open Show here at Cal Arts on Saturday the 28th of April.
I have some phenomenal mentors and friends here and I could not have gotten to the finish line without them.  I'm just starting to get used to the reality that I go to school here, and now it's time for me to graduate.
In the meantime, here's this test thing I made last month:

This was a pre-visualization test that done for my fourth year film at Cal Arts. I just sort of threw this together one evening to stretch my After Effects muscles.
There is an intentional retro goofiness going on here.

Morning Coffee

Had this drawing lying around.  Threw some color on it to relax after working all morning.  It's major crunch time right now.  It's also the most beautiful weather outside this time of year, yet my classmates and I must hide away and work on our films.  Every now and then we might come up for air, and see the sunrise like this little guy.
