Animations

Welcome to my Animations Page!

Since I usually do animation services for a major animation studio, I rarely have time to do my own personal animation. It’s either I am too swamped with work or I don’t have an idea for a story. But early in my career I had the time, and I had some ideas.

Here are some animations that I made using Flash from way back when I was still trying to learn it:

ICE COLD GREEN JUICE

I made this animation when I was still trying to learn Flash sometime in 2003. It was based on a joke that I use to tell way back in college. This particular animation is very significant; I purposely made it so that I will get noticed by the animation director! Suffice to say, it paved the way to my career in animation:

THE SHALLOW SADIST

Shortly after completing “Ice Cold Green Juice”, I followed it up with this piece. Way back then I was experimenting on how to do frame-be-frame animation in Flash. As luck would have it, the system that I was trying to learn and develop was the same one being used in actual production:

  1. Hi Thousand_Master!

    It takes me quite a while to do these movies. It all depends on how complex it is and the availability of all the elements such as the background and the character elements. Sometimes it would just take hours, some would take weeks depending on how complex the movements are. It’s all fun and games so I never think about how long it takes to do them!

    Regards,

  2. Hi Randy

    I just started with animation and wanted to know if you could give me some pointers on where and what to focus on. Please help eager to learn.

    Thanks and keep up with the creativity.

  3. Hi Tomas,

    I can only give you the advice that I got from my mentor when I first started in animation: work on your drawing skills. Study anatomy and just keep practicing; the rest will follow. Oh, and have fun while you are doing it!

    Thanks for dropping by!

  6. Even though I’m not a person who enjoys reading blogs, I must admit – yours [which i found accidentally] is very interesting to visit! I love everything: the animations and your photographic skills. Great job!

    I might even reconsider applying for a business university as my drawing skills are quite good. Seeing someone like u, who has achieved so much through doin’ smth he loves makes me wanna try too.

    Hope everything in your life goes well 🙂

    Appreciate your ARTwork & sense of humor 😀

  7. woow…….. was not in touch for a long time seeing your work makes me come back in touch with it i mean animation………..can i see your more work,,,,or can u teach me something so that i can also gain something……..my id is far_jnc2@rediffmail.com ……….

    • Hi farzana, thanks for dropping by!

      Unfortunately, I don’t have much personal work to show. Most of my animation work are from the projects and job that I have worked on as a independent contractor.

      With regards to teaching you something, I would rather suggest that you read up on animation and try your hand at it. Nothing beats trying it out for yourself.

      Good luck!

  10. Hi Randy,
    I do not know if you remember me. I am Gilbert L. Concepcion, the aspiring flash animator that wrote you before. I am really inspired by your works, and now I am working as a flash animator in a gaming company. Now, I put a blog (www.guhitgalaw.com) for my fellow Filipinos who want to learn the things I learned from many people including you.I wish to add your blog in my site if you will permit me and mention you in my blog posts in the future.

    Cheers,
    Gilbert L. Concepcion

    • Hi Gilbert,

      Congratulations on your new blog! I completely remember how you first started it and I am glad at how you progressed from then. I am also happy that you have achieved your target to become an animator too!

      Please feel free to add my blog to your site, I am very flattered that you had to ask for that.

      Have a nice day, and congratulations again!

      Best regards,

      Randy
