ACCENTS – TED-ED
“Accents”, a spoken word piece written and peformed by the talented Denice Frohman, is an ode to her mother’s Puerto Rican accent. I was invited by TED-Ed to turn Denice’s singular poetry performance into animation. We took on the energy, soul and rhythm of Denice’s performance, and translated it into moving image, transposing her rhythmic vocal motifs and allowing her lyrics to propel and lead the imagery using vibrant and raw frame-by-frame animation work.
RED ROOM POETRY
I was invited by the educational non-profit, Red Room Poetry, to create an animation for the 2018 edition of the Poetry Object competition. Poetry Object invited young writers from around Australia to submit poems about objects curious and special to them. We created an animation inspired by the words of the three winning poems, using a combination of traditional 2D animation, hand-generated linework and textures, and CG.
I was commissioned by the ESPN NBA team to create animations which helped break down Kyrie Irving’s ridiculously good handles.
