    Digital Media International

    During the fall of 1995 I animated a cartoon GUI (graphical user interface) funded by Fujitsu Electronics. Provided layout for this project. The animation and layout were accomplished within a 2 month period. In this project, 16 individual characters, well known in the Japanese entertainment culture, were specified by the client. Each one was put through several humorous antics. Two distinct settings were developed, an office and a home scene, the latter of which was laden with Japanese cultural effects. In order that the background characters to be rendered the same size as foreground characters, isometric perspective was required. This mandated rendering all the characters from an elevated angle. Avi files available on request.

    In 1994 I did all of the character development, character animation, and layout for an edutainment multimedia title featuring 8 multi-cultural cartoon characters with lip-synch speech. This title, "Eureka, I can draw" is presently being published and distributed by Nu-Millennia of Hollywood Avi files available on request
