Animation!

Classical Animation Medly

Here is a sample of some of the commercial animation work I have been doing over the last few years. All of these commercials were for Chuck Gammage Animation in Toronto.

Stop Motion Medly
I spent a year doing stop motion animation for Disney's Jo Jo's Circus, at Cuppa Coffee animation. It was a lot of fun, but I missed drawing. I'd love to try out some feature stop motion at some point though.

Great work, man!
It's nice to know that you did those commercials, I love those, especially the cereal ones. The one about sports is also great. The stop motion is really funny, love the 'Elvis' bird.

Amazing stuff Blair! The only one I haven't seen on tv is the Rice Crispy Squares commercial. And that's some of the best tv stop motion animation I've ever seen. Good stuff.

thanks for the comments guys. I've got to find a way to get a better quality quicktime up. For now this will do I guess. The commercials were done at Chuck Gammage animation, one of the best commercial houses around, and one of my favorite places to work.

What a treat!!! I still remember from the Boot Camp your fat ballerina in a tiny tutu tip toeing off the screen. This stuff just blows that away obviously.


I think you handled the stop motion stuff real nice. Movements feel natural in consideration to their design. Love that Dorky dude with the glasses turning on the hose. Was this all done with the Lunch Box?

Rob: I actually used that ballerina for my final film at sheridan college. I can't believe you remember that. I can't remember the name of the system the stop motion stuff was done on. If it wasn't a lunchbox, it was very similar.

arezoo: Thanks. The zebra designs were done by Hal Mayforth. His stuff is realy fun. I have a link to his site on my links. Check his stuff out.

Murray: Are you making fun of me?
