Finally, episode #2 of my new series has been released...
This was supposed to be released a month after the previous
episode but scheduling ran through a few setbacks.
I'm proud to say that this is the first time I have ever released
a second episode for any series I've tried to start!

I can't remember the last time I posted a completed episode
but here we go, finally...
I think I have finally found a style that I can quickly produce
while at the same time, looks visually appealling. The visuals
are inspired by the 8-bit Mega Man games, and the 16-bit Final

Here we go again...
Earlier this year, I was working on a new animation project
that I was really excited about. However, production was suffering
from the same problem my animation projects usally have; it
was taking too long to make!
To briefly summarize the premise, the series was about a washed-up,
professional American basketball player who, against his wishes,
was forced to try his luck playing in Asia. It mixed comedy
elements with somewhat over-the-top characters. Like Adrenaline,
it's a story I will have to tell another time.
With this project on the back burner, does that mean my animation
is finally dead?
I have something else planned which I will share when I'm ready.

I can't put off animation forever...
It's always been my dream to put out my own series on the net.
I tried first with Adrenaline Street Racing.
I was able to release two episodes that I was very proud about,
but it took MASSIVELY long to create. Lacking time to animate
the series myself and money to hire animators to do it for me,
I knew it would be impossible to continue the series.
I then experimented with other mediums like using 3D rendered
comics or live actors, but those had problems of their own too.
The picture above represents my last attempt at putting out
a series on the net. I won't go into details about the story
or the medium. But if it's successful, it will lead to more
work from me and possibly a continuation of Adrenaline.

The first shooting has completed for the upcoming movie "Misplaced".
The series is being shot in Korea using real life actors. The
movie will be released as a series of videos over the internet
as scenes are completed.
A mini-site and second teaser trailer are coming soon!

It's been a long time since I have updated this website, but
I do so with a teaser trailer:
These are mainly school assignments and not production renders.
July 3, 2011
There are so many freaking blogs already on the net. That is
why I decided to start one of my own (lol):
I'm thinking the layout of my website needs a slight update...
June 30, 2011 Adrenaline First Episode Released!
The first episode of "Adrenaline - Street Racing"
has been released. Watch it... now!
April 25, 2011 "Street Racers Anthem" song
We finished up the song "Street Racers Anthem" for
my upcoming show:
This is the second vocalized song I have written. My friend
performed the amazing female vocals, and I even did a few lines
myself (not singing vocals though, lol). Overall, it was a lot
of fun doing some of the lyrics; I'm not sure if I'll ever record
myself again for a track, but at least I tried it once. =)
March 28, 2011 "Still Waters" 3D Sculpture
I had a small role in the production of my friends' music video.
Check it out (change quality to HD):
I sculpted the stone figure that appears partway through:
March 6, 2011 Adrenaline Closing Sequence
The closing sequence has been released for my upcoming web
It felt like the universe was trying to stop me from finishing
this. One thing after another came up, but finally... it's done!
I'm currently having it screened. Look for a release in a week.
April 30, 2010 // Animation Complete
The animation is finally complete for Moving On!!!
After months of working on this in my free time, I never thought
I'd reach this point. While I'm happy it's done, I'll miss working
on this project.
What's left is rendering and editing everything together (two-thirds
already done) which is a relatively fast process. Look for a
dual release of both my shorts coming soon!
March 30, 2010 // "What is Adrenaline?"
finally finished the animation for my 2nd short (I'm working
on two shorts concurrently). What's left is editing and compositing
all the rendered animations together as well as adding sound.
I'll also take this opportunity to explain what exactly that
animation is. Unlike "Moving On", it is a very
short animation, more of a teaser promo for my next project.
The title of the animation is "What is Adrenaline?"
Well, what is 'Adrenaline'? I'll save that for another day.
March 4, 2010 // The Last Stretch
busy... as always. =P
After work, school, homework, misc junk, I get about an hour
(if I'm lucky) to work on this which is FAR from enough time.
I'm currently animating the last scene which has been loads
of fun b\c of the character movement and poses involved.
One thing I've noticed is my animating has gotten much
faster. When I first started this project, it could take me
at least a week to animate a full minute of dialogue. Now, I
can animate a full minute in less than two days (hypothetically-speaking...
if I had two whole days).
I was supposed to finish "Moving On" over last summer
but got extremely busy when the semester started. As for progress,
I'd say 100% of the sets and props are built, 50% of the animation
is done. Check out the Moving
On section for some screengrabs of actual shots.
As for that other "thing"... it's coming along also.

Coming soon! This + "Moving On".

Voice acting complete! Thank you to my actors. The lines came
out exactly as intended. Now it's just up to me to provide convincing
I've given myself 3-4 weeks to complete the rest of the short
film. This includes animation, rendering, and editing. Wish
me luck. =P
June 22, 2009
Most of the sets are done for my short film. Enjoy the comps!
May 23, 2009
The sets are coming along for my short film. Just a little
bit more to go, and I can finally start doing the animation
and recording for the voice acting.

Here's a promo shot for "Moving On":
This is the look I'm going for and will probably be the look

Happy new year to everyone! I made some very minor changes
to the website. I decided to rename my short film from "The
Date" to "Moving On".
December 27, 2008
This is my new website! I'm guessing most people have arrived
here from A-SR.com. On this website, you can see all the projects
I'm working on (although keep on visiting A-SR.com for updates
related to that project).
This website uses a non-standard font viewable on Safari, Opera
10, and firefox 3.1 (the latter two will be released soon).
