David Wolter's "Eyrie"

Postby Charles » Wed Jul 27, 2011 12:05 am

Prior to attending Cal Arts, David Wolter was a student of mine taking Character Design at The Animation Academy.

I've been aware of this film for a while now, and was waiting for the opportunity to showcase it. It's available for public viewing on YouTube, so I guess it's safe to share the video of David's fine hand drawn animated short.




In addition to the final version, the animatic for Eyrie is available for review as well.

Check out the planning for this film.




Word is that David is now employed at DreamWorks. Congratulations DreamWorks! You've got yourself another highly talented artist on staff.
