Hello, I’m excited to introduce myself as the the latest addition to Focal Press – Marketing Manager for Animation, Gaming, and Web Development.  As the newest member of Team Focal, I want to dedicate this post to all of the new guys and gals working hard to prove themselves.

Today’s Animation Inspiration comes from Joaquin Baldwin, a relatively new talent in the industry.  Last week, Baldwin celebrated the three year anniversary of his short film Sebastion’s Voodoo which has garnered over 100 awards and honors as well as appeared in a plethora of film festivals around the globe.  The short was completed as Baldwin’s second year project at UCLA – he has since graduated in 2010.  Personally, I can’t wait to see how his career progresses.

Sebastion’s Voodoo impressed me with its ability to create a painfully suspenseful world with characters that evoked emotion in less than five minutes sans dialogue.  This feat was accomplished with Baldwin’s beautiful animation, masterful storytelling, and a moody soundtrack provided by Nick Fevola.  I hope you enjoy this story of a brave voodoo doll’s selfless act of heroism.
