Toyota Savings Event

Toyota spot I built for a sales event. I had a tiny reference of an older spot that was made somewhere else. I was told we need an updated version of this and we had no assets except for the car. It was a fun and quick challenge to duplicate.

Nicktoons Network -Three Headed Monster

A series of bumpers I animated for The Nicktoons Network at Interspectacular. This was part of their weekend cartoon block. The monster had three heads named Friday, Saturday, and Sunday respectively.

WeMojis

WEtv Emoji's

A series of short animations that feature the WEtv Emoji’s goofing off. This was a pitch for a series of spots that never made it to the final stage. The animations were fun to do and so I wanted to share.

Animated pilot for series.
The crew of the Manta Ray plumbs the depths of Cartoon Lagoon in search of the best and the worst cartoons ever made. 90 minute DVD and online series.

In the tradition of Howdy Doody and Captain Kangaroo, a new crew of kooky, kid’s show enthusiasts are setting sail this Fall on DVD with their eye on misadventure and cartoon glory. Created by Manny Galán, co-produced by Pat Giles and Galán and directed by Euralis Weekes, Captain Cornelius Cartoon’s Cartoon Lagoon is a love letter to 70s and 80s Saturday morning that stars a cast of puppet sailors (Axel Rodd McGee, Wet Willy Jones, Franky Planky and the titular Captain Cornelius) as they search for the best – and the worst – cartoons ever made aboard their submarine, the Manta Ray.
I think Galán put it best in his nostalgic observation about the loss of Saturday mornings:
…it’s really become obvious to me how little Saturday morning means to this generation. I’m amazed me to see what once was my holy grail become relegated to complete unimportance.
We loved being a part of something that couldn’t be re-created. Living in the moment and knowing that all your friends were having the same experience at the same time.
