UV Blacklight Ink Marker

Since I can't post any pictures from Kubo and the Two Strings, I will share some great tips that I've learned from the animators here at Laika.

For example, UV Blacklight Ink Marker!

I was animating one of the heros and he had to cross the scenario in 10 frames. So, I just made a mark in the scenario where he was supposed to be in each frame. Then, I turned on the UV flashlight to see where to place him!

I am really happy (and lucky) to say that I am animating at LAIKA for Kubo and the Two Strings!

First, I survived 4 weeks at test unit and one of the things that they asked me to do was "make Kubo alive, switch weight, breathing!"
Sounds easy, but if you are an animator, you know how challenging it is.

So far, I approved 3 shots (around 10 seconds of animation).
And I have to tell you, I fought for every single frame that I took!

I have had the pleasure to work for Vetor Zero again. This time I animate the classic character Pinocchio for a Brazilian documentary called "A Vida Privada dos Hipopótamos" . The doc is about foreign prisoners inside Brazilian jail.

  Pinocchio and the whale was made by the incredible hands of Fabiana Fukui.

My talented buddies Alexandre Elaiuy and D. Lee.

Since July, I have had the honor to work with a very talented crew at Clay Animation studio in Valencia, Spain.

We are 16 animators working hard (120 frames/day) with animating the 2nd Season of Clay Kids TV series!

The best part of working here is that every day is a surprise.

It can be action scenes, jumping, running, skateboarding, walking like a cat and... sleeping!

Here is the first episode released from the second season:

This beautiful piece of  #stopmotion film is my latest job as a senior animator.

Created for Global Commission on Drugs Policy, the animation has a powerful message about the criminalization of drug use.

I am really proud and honored to be a part of the crew who created DRUGO! 

Thanks for VetorZero!
