Doug's Intro

Animator/Illustrator/Student Director

A drawing is an idea. As an animator, I turn ideas into stories.
I am currently a junior at the Kansas City Art Institute. It's been a blessing and privilege to be a student there after earning my AFA at the Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL. I keep this as a journal of my latest projects and explorations in animation.

Big Plans

Alright! After a week of recharging my batteries and regrouping with the family (good times, WOOT).
I am digging back into my final and prepping it for Ottawa 2011. I have a few adjustments I'd like to make and I already submitted all my entry form paperwork. Here's a link to the festival site.

I also have restarted my deviantart account, some little goodies there:
These are the concept sketches for my elemental character I am hoping to get some tests animated for within the next month.

Finally, I am also working on a music video for the Stone Throw Records "Code Emphasis" competition.

"Dive In' Spring 2011 Final

Dive In from Douglas Meloche on Vimeo.

Hooray, it's...not quite done yet.
There are a few actions I need to add/improve. I plan to have everything polished in time for the Ottawa Film Festival.
