Posted in Animation, feature film with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2016 by pablonavarro

Some months ago I worked for Duncan Studios, animating on the upcoming project Middle School: the worst years of my life.

It was a blast to work with Ken Duncan and Chris Sauvé, whom was animation director, a very good one by the way!

All the team at Duncan Studios was great, so…..only great things can come out of that!

I leave here a link to AWN article about the feature film, and a featurette showing the animation process and such.

Happy to see some of my shots there!

Like the one of Rafe (the kid) sitting at a table and the bear put the pawn on the hair and leave it full of honey.

and several more, but…..just enjoy the whole thing, go see the movie when it comes out!, the animation  on it is great, it is gonna be a cool movie.

Once movie gets release and all, I’ll ask permission to show some of the rough animation  I did for the film.

untill then, enjoy the article and featurette!

I want to share here the trailer for the Tv Series Cracke, or Cracked  (French or English Title).

Cracked was produced and created by the talented people of Squeeze Studios, located at Quebec Canada.

I have the Honor to collaborate with them as Animation Director, and credited has Director of one of the episodes.

It was a blast of fun to work in this project, and my thanks to all the people at Squezze studios, for their incredible work and commitment to the project!

I hope that soon everybody can see the show on TV, so far I know it will in air time at Teletoon Channel.

We wanted to bring back the feeling of cartoons from the golden age, but into the present media capabilities, the result it is a fun, entertaining, slapstick action driven comedy, with time enough to put a smile on your face with each episode.

Here it is the Trailer, enjoy!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2014 by pablonavarro

Hi there, long time since my last post.

I’ll post one of the latest works I’ve done, and some of the reasons I didn’t have time to post anything lately!🙂

It is a great commercial from Samsung, very imaginative and creative, see it for yourself, it looks and sounds great!

I did animation direction on this one, plus some shot here and there, I can say it was a ride, direct all the actions to match what was going to be the live action, but hey! it was great fun to do.

I worked for Martin Allais and he’s Studio.

I had a wonderful team of animators that made my life all easy too!

Worked digitally using traditional animation, wacom cintiqs and tvpaint animation software.

Hope you enjoy the video!

and here it is a making off for the short, enjoy too!
