Film

I have been a filmmaker for 35 years - from Super8 films to modern all-digital productions. I've directed and/or produced over 100 short films, episodes, and commercials - for live action, animation, and hybrid productions. I've written and directed original entertainment content for Mark Cuban and other producers, and have co-developed properties for Adam Sandler, Tim Burton, and several of the major Hollywood studios. In addition, I've spent hundreds of hours on feature film, TV and commercial sets, as FX supervisor, Art Director, and other roles, giving me a broad perspective on the big-budget production process.
Graphic Design,

Graphic Design

I've produced Motion Graphics professionally for over a decade, including title sequences, logos, commercials, messaging media and training videos. Clients include Microsoft, Pepsi, Hewlett Packard, CDC, NCR, Chyron, GE, Vevo and many others. I specialize in hybrid graphic & video production, incorporating applications like After Effects, Premiere, Flash, Photoshop and Toon Boom Harmony.
Video Production

Video Production

I've worked professionally in video production for over 25 years. I started in the pre-digital age, with early hand-held video and massive editing & FX systems for post production. I was among the first to learn and master nonlinear digital editing, and helped to develop some of the graphics & animation tools that are now industry standard. My current production setup allows me the versatility to shoot video on location or over green-screen, and produce special FX and animation and handle TV-quality sound design. My clients have ranged from WB, Fox and Disney to Microsoft, HP and Pepsi. In addition to my professional portfolio, I write, direct and produce low-to-moderate-budget films across multiple media, working with crews of varying size and skill sets, and handling post production, FX and sound in my home studio.

Computer

Adobe Flash,

Adobe Flash

In terms of narrative animation production, I am perhaps one of the 10 most experienced, qualified Flash users in the world. I have logged thousands of hours creating animation in Flash and peripheral software. I started using Flash at its inception in 1997 (when it was called FutureSplash - I still have the user guide), working with Disney and WB on web projects. I went on to help develop the early sound tools and worked closely with the software developers to explore new uses for the tools. I was also Lead Animator on the first Flash Animation feature, developing production pipelines and rigging processes - many of which are still in use today at major studios.
Animation,

Animation

I have produced animation for over 30 years, working with some of the biggest names in the biggest studios. I started a world-renown Animation Studio (Flinch Studio, now MightyPants Media), where I produced some of the first web entertainment, for Adam Sandler, Tim Burton, and Gracie films. I've also worked on several productions for Feature Film and TV. I've headed up animation projects for Disney, Fox, Warner Brothers and Sony, as well as numerous small studios and corporate clients. I'm experienced with hands-on management of every stage of production from writing & development, to casting & recording, through boards and production, to Post, FX and sound design.

Outstanding Tutor (Online Instruction)

Tony was outstanding with his knowledge of Adobe products, including After Effects which I had a minor crisis with. He delivered a concise, professional 60 minute session that was efficient in the use of the on-screen Wyzant product. I would HIGHLY recommend Tony and look forward to working with him again in the future. Money well spent. TJ
