Mission Statement:
Strange Days is a motorcycle get together for like minded chopper enthusiasts. It also takes place at a man's private property who is being kind enough to have us; so respect for his land is important. This is purely about the love of bikes, good tunes, and just having a fun time. We would love for everyone to join us, and just keep it peaceful! So please no fireworks, attitudes, or fights. We're encouraging a No Colors policy to help ensure this. No offense or disrespect to anyone, we just want to keep it low key, safe, and to be able to to do it again! Much thanks!

Eight Years Stuck In My Mind

This started off as a pet project my junior year high school while first learning 3D modeling and animating. I got as far as about 20 seconds into the whole animation but didn't really know where else to take it. When I went off to college I began to learn bigger and better programs and I thought about starting again with this project. Still, I only chipped away at it here and there and eventually it was sort of forgotten about. That was until my last 2 years of my third college I really had the opportunity to flesh out the story and start fresh. I had some other easier ideas for an animation; like a single character with three different scenes at the most. However, The Requiem Ride kept coming back to my mind and I had to make it, no matter what.

The Requiem Ride Is Out!

My senior project, The Requiem Ride, is now available on DVD! As I said before, these DVDs are FREE. I am not charging a dime for them, all I ask is a donation of $5 for the cost of shipping. Check out the About page for more info and how to donate through Paypal. The DVDs include some cool bonus features and stickers! Who doesn't love stickers!? I also have a limited number of wide screen copies available. (Let me know if you want a wide screen version. Just make sure your TV/DVD player can handle it, its super wide and super HD!) For those of you who have already reserved your copies they are ready for you!

The animation is now LIVE on the site through Vimeo. Click on the Film tab to check it out and spread the word!

The website has also had an overhaul to better serve you! A new gallery section has also been added.

Lastly, I really want to thank everyone who has supported me in making this animated short. No really, thank you! It was a crazy idea that turned into a true project that consumed my life for two years. I had many nights with no sleep, consumed gallons Redbull, and spent countless hours in front of the computer that I'm sure I have now developed carpel tunnel. However, more importantly, I graduated from Pratt Institute with honors because of it. Some of you who have helped with this project will be receiving a little something extra with your care package.

Thanks again!
