adult swim bumper

hey gs and gs,

got some news i've been wanting to share with y'all since september! check it out here:

back during the third round of nata i was contacted by titmouse, the studio i interned with last spring. they were commissioned by adult swim to make like ten bumpers, and they wanted me to direct one. a nice chunk of my time during the final round against @thesilleguy was divided to do concept, pitch, and rough animation for this so that i wouldn't disapoint my friends in los angeles. it definitely felt weird to have a project going on that i couldn't share anything about publicly. in the end, i had what you see above, and i've been waiting to share it for like four months now.

and speaking of nata, 'your art is shit' got a staff pick on vimeo!

it's been a busy couple weeks dealing with press, licensing, and other junk for it, and it feels like it's already been a solid boost to my career. if anyone out there is interested, i'd be happy to do a writeup on the promotional work i did for this piece that ended up having a big hand in getting the staff pick. it's information that i think would be beneficial to indie creators on all these sites, because i really don't feel like many of you are doing a decent job at self promotion.

all my loves,

Beautiful works man, cool to see people on NG breaching into the professional/ contracted world of art entertainment creation. Awesome flicks.

Congrats man, Titmouse chose well!
And I agree on the self promotion part, I suck at it as well.

Looks great, dude! :) I've also thought about making an edit to my final NATA animation to fix the sound but I don't have that many good sound effects, lol.

Still, great work, and it's awesome you did an adult swim bumper :D

Congrats on the bumper and staff pick!

A writeup on the promotional work would probably be a great read.
