"Mashed" in Its Entirety

I know it's been a long time since I've posted. That's for a good reason--our family is very busy right now, expecting our second child and trying our best to orchestrate a move to California as painlessly as possible. Really sorry I haven't posted anything in a long while--even more sorry that I haven't had much time to draw for fun while taking care of all this grown-up stuff.

I promised some time ago that I would get around to posting my cartoon movie, "Mashed," and today is that day. Without further ado, I present to you the fruits of my BYU education.


I hope you love it. If you do, spread the word, because I would love for many people to be able to enjoy it. Thanks so much!!


Also of note: somebody else produced a student animated short this year called "Mashed." From what I understand, it was a student from RIT. Sorry, other kid, for stealing the title to your short film. Luckily the twain shall never be confused, because while yours is a sophisticated animated short, no doubt, mine is a stupid cartoon movie.

A new take on Mr. Potato Head...upping the game for those guys at some upstart studio who just premiered their final sequel of a little computer-generated movie called..."Toy Story", I think.

Great job! Very clever!! Hope you earned some good chocolate for all your efforts. And congrats on graduating, the soon-to-be baby and the move to Californeeya!

Anthony!

First of all, congrats on the new job at DW! You def. deserve it.

I sent the you tube link to practically every artist here at Digital Domain, and so far everyone really loves it! One person said, "this reminds me of the triplets of belle ville". I thought you would like to hear that.

I loved it as well! nice work.

Pillowy mounds of mashed potatoes Batman!
I'm so excited to watching this again and again and again and again ...

Pretty much this is one of my favorite short films of all time. I am not even exaggerating.
The #1 thing that really caught my eye was how "deep" your camera felt, things moving in front of and behind other things, the focus of the "camera" etc. etc. provided a very real feeling of depth.

Super sweet dude. Dreamworks is lucky to have you.
