Music- work in Progress

Music is going to be my next animation, an its based on this super cute, chubby, short , 10 year old boy named Rob. He is a stand up Bass Player and he loves music, he lives in one of the Painted Ladies in San Francisco and  he goes play Bass at the Powell street (SF downtown) where he gets teleported to this parallel universe.
Music is so powerful, it can gives you an infinity of feelings and sensations, and that's what I want to explore through a musician perspective.
Its going to be tons of work but I'm having fun, I don't have a lot of experience doing scenarios, but I see it as a great opportunity to push myself on doing it! 

PS: The boy is based on my awesome Boyfriend Rob! he isn't chubby or short anymore.
And ohhh boy this guy is so damn talented! *__*
Talent is aphrodisiac hehehe!

Mari Has a Dream - Animation

Here is the final piece! 
I worked super hard mainly because I was learning as I was doing it!  I think the best way to learn is by struggling on doing something you really care about.

I made this animation to get an scholarship at Expression College in Emeryville California, which I did! I'm super happy to say that I got 16K off  the total cost on my education with this short movie!

And I'm already working on my next animation which hopefully I will send to some festivals next year. It will  definitely be way more complex but in the same scrapbook- paper cut style, I'm going to use After Effects again, since I didn't start learning Maya yet, and I'm in love with AE!
