• January, 2016   In October of 2014, I was asked by Phil Tippett to build several armatures for the Dejarik Holochess set to be used in Star Wars Episode 7, The Force Awakens. I am very honored to have had a hand in building this small part of the Star Wars universe that has inspired me so much over the years. Below are several videos showing us building and animating these famous little monsters.

February, 2016 After more than ten years of work, Fabricated is complete. The film is, at the end, a beautiful and intense nineteen-minute-long stop-motion animated journey with a dense, detailed soundscape and an exquisite musical score. Making this has been such an adventure and I would like to thank everyone who helped out or supported the project. I would especially like to thank the sound and color team with whom I had a wonderful and enjoyable collaboration: creature vocal specialist John France,composer Andrew Poole Todd, sound designers Ryan Mauk and Chris Vibberts, mixer Dan Olmsted and colorist Bradley Greer. Thank you all for your artistry, your contributions and for being exceedingly patient as I felt my way through this strange universe.


  • March, 2015   The final frame of animation for the film has been shot. It has taken me three cameras, four cities, five puppets and ten years to shoot over 27000 frames of animation to tell this story.
  • April, 2005   After several years of designing and building my hybrid creatures, I begin to shoot a short stop-motion film. I think the whole project can be finished within three years. I definitely do not know that it will take ten.
