Zynga Boston Animation Reel

Hello guys,

I wanted to get some feedback from you on the animation work I did while at Zynga Boston. Unfortunately the studio met an untimely demise a few months ago, and I finally garnered the motivation to get everything together.

Thanks everyone!

Very nice work man! Yea its unfortunate that Zenga flopped here in Cambridge MA but the work you guys pumped out was amazing. The only critique I can think of is some of the characters seem way too squash and stretchy, but other than that they are really good

Thanks guys.

Tyler, as far as the whole studio situation...our Indiana Jones game was made in 1 year with a staff of 25, and the game went on to be played by a few million people every day at the height of its popularity. By industry standards this would be considered a pretty successful game; however Zynga had launched games that were much more successful in comparison at the time.

Anyone's guess is as good as mine at this point. We had a very talented team, but I think what Zynga saw was a very expensive team and a way to help quell the fears of investors. What can you do right?

Exactly theres nothing much you can do about it at this point, the gaming industry is so competitive it seems like most gaming companies flop. Especially in 2012, but thats okay you have great work to back your resume up!
