I grew up fascinated by animation. My parents would periodically allow me to rent 16mm Disney films from our local library, and would marvel at the artwork, resolving to do some of it myself. When I was in junior high, I created several stop-action animations using an 8mm movie camera, some with 2D cut-outs and some with 3D dolls (think Rankin-Bass’ Christmas specials).
With my first graphics PC, I discovered 3D animation, and a new hobby that fulfilled my childhood dream like nothing else had. Below are stills from some of my animations.
I hope soon to have a lot more web space, so I can host animation clips myself, but for now I have provided preview images, and links to where I have currently posted the animations on Dailymotion.com. I am available to do freelance 3D animation work, and anyone who likes what they see here can E-mail me at: DaveH47SPAMGOHOME@gmail.com (Please remove ‘SPAMGOHOME’ from the address).

magical continent of the Marvelous Land of Oz. The Emerald City,
Glinda’s palace, the Scarecrow’s farm-tower, and the mysterious
Forest of Burzee are among the highlights.
