05 - 32 seconds: The South park sixth season opening was an opportunity for me to be creative as an editor. I was given creative control to use clips from the previous five seasons as a back plate for the new opening. Collaborating closely with Director of Animation, Eric Stough, created a time lapse film of his hands cutting South Park characters in the style of the original stop motion pilot episode. This opening ran for six seasons. I updated the back plate clips each season. 33 - 47: In 2005, recreating the South park open for HD up res. 47 - 1.27: 24 hour time lapse in my Avid bay for South Park Episode 1104, “The Snuke" From script to final color each episode completed in six days. 1.27 – 1.39: Collaborating closely with creator Ryan Quincy, used Wacom, Photoshop and Final Cut to create storyboards and edit scenes for out-of- house animation. I drew this this storyboard animatic from scratch using a Wacom cintiq 21ux. I used existing storyboards and animated keys from previous episodes as reference.
