In the following clip, you’ll see an except from an episode of the Tom Bosley hosted show, That’s Hollywood. The show inspired my interest in special effects as a young child. Featured in the video is Ray Harryhausen, for those of you that don’t know of him, he created a brand of stop-motion model animation known as “Dynamation.” Among his most notable works are his animation on Mighty Joe Young (with pioneer Willis O’Brien, which won the Academy Award for special effects) (1949), The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (his first colour film) and Jason and the Argonauts, featuring a famous sword fight against skeleton warriors.
Thanks to the hard work of Executive Producer Robert Parham, the short film Buster Jones: The Movie, has won 1st Place at the Chico CA Show Us Your Shorts Film Festival. Buster seems to have legs and keeps creating a buzz wherever it ends up. We are all hoping the fans will have their day in the sun and the entire film will be released. For now, you can see the short here: Buster Jones Trailer

This is a quick demo reel to represent what our 3D department can do for your company image. Chief animator Geoff Hecht uses Maya for his designs and Director Jeff Cavanaugh prefers the ease of use and intuitiveness of Maxon’s Cinema 4D. The use of both packages enables us to create with endless possibility and deliver on a wide range of timelines, budgets, and formats from Broadcast to HD and 3D cinema output.
