CGSociety was kind enough to do a feature ( on my first short film, Egghunt. The film served as my undergraduate thesis film and has completed its festival run. It is now available to download with a CGTalk/CGSocety membership, or you can download it directly from my website:
>>> Small ( (10.9Mb MOV)
>>> Large ( (98.7Mb MOV)

This being my first short, I decided to document the process from the very beginning. You can view the WIP thread ( or my Production Journal ( Let me know what you think!

After seeing the short yesterday, I was so impressed I decided to check out the WIP thread. I just finally finished reading the entire thing, watching the short about 5 times in between. I have to say, you did an awesome job. Very inspiring to see such a thing. I'll be going off to college in a couple of years and hope to learn as much as you did. Great job. :)

Thanks for all the support guys, and an extra thanks to those of you who helped critique along the way! It's been a bumpy first ride, but I'm definitely going to jump on it again.

Merry Christmas everyone and have a Happy Holidays :)
