WELCOME!

Welcome to my 3ds Max website!  2010 is the 20th anniversary for Autodesk 3D Studio and in recognition of this fairly major milestone, I have remastered the first animated short ever created with 3D Studio, Corner Stone.

Created in a week in July of 1990, Corner Stone tells the story of a building cornerstone who dreams of going to the beach.  Only one thing stands in his way: He's holding up a 40-story building!

I call Corner Stone the "least animated, animated film in history" because in order to create it in the time allowed, I had to minimize the amount of complex rendering and find tricky ways to speed up the production.

The final, remastered short can be found at Vimeo.

Read the story behind the creation of Corner Stone 20 years ago, its loss and recovery, and the process of remaking the short with 3D Studio's successor, 3ds Max:
