I am an animator with over four years of production experience. During my career I have been fortunate enough to work on high profile projects viewed by millions of people every day. I've worked with Lucas Film Ltd. with incorporating their iconic Indiana Jones franchise into an online game, and also worked on the launch of Cityville (played by well over 100 million people). I continue to strive for excellence in my everyday career. I'm currently looking to branch out into areas of expertise other than animation. I am proficient in every aspect of the 3D production pipeline (modeling/texturing, shading/lighting, rigging, animation and composting), and very familiar with 2d Flash animation as well. If you are interested in doing work with me, please contact me at burlyr@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you, thank you.
