The Laureates “Robbers” music video was a total blast to make! Working with Brian Keller (of Brain Killer), and my wife Sara Jean (of Lady Lens Productions), I was able to add bring to life this tale of robbers who rob the world of real objects and replace them with their animated counterparts. Sara Jean and I then worked together for three months illustrating, animating, rotoscoping, compositing, and creating images that would fit into the original scenes and make this an animated world to remember.

Murder By Death 'As Long As Their Is Whiskey In The World'
This was the first animation I did in collaboration with Lady Lens Productions- and what better way to start than with a video for Murder By Death!! I did a lot of experimentation, a TON of hand drawings, and just about blew the bulb in my scanner. Sara Jean of Lady Lens Productions took all of my drawings and expertly composited and animated them into the live video. Time for some whiskey!
