Home on the Range

Disney's Home on the Range was a very troubled production.  It started as something totally different (and more interesting) than the final film but the executives thought it was not working for them and changes were ordered.
I had a great time working on it and visually it was beautiful thanks to designs by Joe Moshier and David Cutler's art direction.

Above is the final drawing of Grace I did for the model sheet. The design is by Joe Moshier.
Below are some animation and model drawings.

One day, Joe Moshier went to my office looking for me but I was away.  I was working on a scene of Pearl talking with the sheriff and had a drawing on my desk.  When I got back, this is what I Found:

Here are 2 shots I animated for Enchanted and supervised by James Baxter and the final color scenes. It is always a thrill for me to see my scenes with the final color in the movie and with the BGs, camera moves, EFX, etc.

It is still amazing that we start on a blank piece of paper.

Goodbye LA (for now)

My work for Ken Duncan on the new Kung Fu Panda 2d short has ended and now it's time to go back home to Sao Paulo,  Brazil and on to new projects.
It was a lot of hard work but what I have seen so far looks great.  Beautiful art direction, animation, cleanup, efx, After Efx, etc.
Big thanks to Ken Duncan for trusting me and to the whole team.   I can not wait to see it all done.
