This was an ongoing personal project. This movie consists of only 3 completed shots out of (about) a 5 minute short story. Free to design and animate anything I wanted, I unfortunately never gave myself a deadline, and the time has come where I cannot dedicate anymore time to this. For now, please look at this piece as a work in progress- that hopefully one day finishes.
1AM's concept is about the human race's extinction because of its dependence of fossil fuels. Aliens come to earth to re-seed and start over. The first two shots, which are missing had a team "cutters" slashing down dead trees and foliage, clearing the way for the reseeding process. That narrative would lead the viewer to believe that these little machines were destroying the earth, rather than trying to help it. A lone alien decides to abandon it's job, curious after questioning why it is tasked with destroying what's left of life on the mostly barren planet.
Thats where these three shots come in.
It turns out these cutters (and the aliens driving them) are just grunts doing their job. When it finds this old broken down gas station, his curiosity gives a clue to what happened, and confirms that this is earth in the future. The story obviously goes on, but I'll leave you with that. Maybe one day this piece will get finished.
Thanks to Roy Burns, my little teaser now has music and sound design.
This project initially began after I designed a robot character for Imaginary Forces. The character was a spin on a "fire eater" in the circus and the project was AICP.

So, while trying to avoid work and a project for college, I came up with this crazy idea: I would, in 60 seconds, describe what I'm doing, and what I think Nathalia is doing at her house. There, she would do the same thing: in a 60-second-video, tell what she is doing, and what she imagined I would be doing.
We are friends for a long time now, so we thought our guesses would be correct.
Well... the results are in the videos. This is Nathalia's: http://www.vimeo.com/clip:155850
The idea of SSS (Sixty Simultaneous Seconds) was for us to interact - although we were in different places, we shot this at the same time, with the same "idea" in mind.
PS: Of course, we couldn't do it in only 60 seconds. But SSS is a great name (that Nathalia came up with) for this useless project, so let's pretend Nathalia and I were fast enough!
This is a stupid bike made for the 2009 sea otter classic by members of the engineering department at santa cruz bicycles. It includes two boxxers acting as front and rear suspension, a sram hammerschmidt, a jackshaft and a fixed gear final drive that utilizes two deraillers for chain tensioning top and bottom chain runs. It also has a shocker head tube badge, 900mm wide bars, and a little plastic pig jammed in one of the bottom bracket tubes.
