Ice Age Reel!!!

Here it is! My reel from Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs! These shots are what I completed during my 6 weeks as a temp animator at Blue Sky Studios. All clips are copyright Twentieth Century Fox. I am responsible for all character animation in the shots except for the following:
Shot 1: “This is my kind of place” - Only animated Diego and Manny; NOT Buck.
Shot 5: “Plates of Whoa” - Only animated the part where Buck is drawing; NOT the falling plates.
Shot 6: “I never thought of going back” - Only animated the background characters; NOT Buck

(Click the image above to see the reel)

And here's an image of my name in the credits.
(Thanks to Alexiss for this)

"Thief!" - Spline Stage

So, it's been a while, but here's an update to my shot. I've finished refining the spline pass and am posting it for comments and critique. I need to go back in for another polish pass, but I've been watching it waaaayyyyy too many times, and I can't tell what I like about it or not anymore. Advice is always very much appreciated!

Thanks again!

The website for the LeapFrog hardware I've been working on at Chewy Software is up! Introducing Zippity. I did most of the animation for the Little Einsteins game that's included with the system.
