Minimates MAX

16 Apr

A little more than a year ago, I became involved with Diamond Select Toys thanks to their Marketing Supervisor and my former ToyFare colleague, Zach Oat. The task: Bring their line of block-styled 2″ tall Minimates to life in stop-motion animated shorts! I think the work I’ve done with Zach and DST has been some of my best-looking stuff in terms of set design, action scenes, lighting and visual effects. Here are two of the first shorts, both written by Zach, that I animated based on the Minimates MAX toy line. Insider easter egg: Episode 2’s Mount Purdin was named after DC Comics Associate Editor and solid dude, Rickey Purdin!
