I am so exited to finally be able to share this secret project that I have been working on. The fine folks over at Procreate asked me to try a very early version of their BRAND NEW Animation software to see what I could do with it.

It’s called Procreate Dreams and all I can say is: WOW! – For portable software on an iPad it is incredibly robust and the price point is a game changer! Be sure to watch their reveal keynote below. It will be available to everyone on November 22nd. 

Speaking of the keynote I had NO IDEA that my little short was going to be included as the climax of the event. They kept that a complete surprise and I found out in the audience just like everyone else. So a HUGE Thank You to James, Georgie, Nate, LJ & all of the amazing crew over at Procreate.

In just a few weeks I was able to create the animation above. This is actually the first piece of animation that I’ve been involved with that has gone all the way through to color since “The Bear & The Hare” and this is the first fully colored & finished animation that I’ve produced entirely in house. (Don’t worry though I am also still hard at work on “Snow Bear” and that is coming ASAP).

I also want to give an extra special shout out to Max Mueller who did the amazing job on the score! Max is a wonderful young composer and working with him on this project was a total joy! He has a great future ahead of him in the film world. Watching him record the score with a live orchestra was breath taking! Be sure to check out his website: HERE

I’ll have a full reaction video to the news later this week. Plus, I am pleased to announce that I will have a FULL Course on Animating In Procreate Dreams available the day the software drops! (or very soon thereafter).

It is hard for me to believe it but June 19th marks the 25th Anniversary of Disney’s MULAN!

This film has always been special to me for a number of reasons:

First, off it was the first time that I was cast as the supervising animator of the lead villain in the movie… Bao Gung!

What’s that you say? There is no Bao Gung. Well, you are right. Over the course of developing the film the character of Bao Gung was written out and the character of Shan Yu became the primary villain. At the time, the role of Shan Yu had already been assigned to the very talented Pres Romanillios.

This left me without a character in the film… That is until the directors sat me down and asked if I could do several characters? So I ended up designing and animating the character of Yao as well as all of the ancestor ghosts.

This film is also special to me because it was the first film that was really the baby of the Florida Studio. This film was produced and directed out of the Florida animation studio and I think it is one of the best looking films of the 90’s animation era.

It’s clear that we were firing on all cylinders.

Over the years, I have shared a number of videos about Mulan on my YouTube channel and my TikTok – So, I thought to celebrate this milestone I would gather a few of the highlights here. I’ve also included a gallery with some of my drawings from Mualn below.

This film was also very important for my fellow Creature Art Teacher, Tim Hodge. It was his first feature film project as a story artist!

To celebrate the occasion, he has created a new video in his “Tips with Tim” series. Give it a watch below:
