Welcome to the content graveyard. When tutorials and other content go to that great hard drive in the sky, their lifeless corpses land here in this dark corner of the website. They arrive here because the information they contain has become outdated (e.g. the great Duik Bassel revolution, announcements, etc.), or I’ve learned a better way to do something, either from other people or from my own experiments with puppet animation. Either way, here they’ll stay until I’m overcome with embarrassment at how archaic they’ve become and delete them. This is the web, though, and we all know that nothing ever truly disappears. The last remnants of a page’s ones and zeros drift through the ether that is the internet remind us all: we’re just visiting this planet but what we upload on the web is forever.

The Angie rigging series of tutorials was retired after the release of Duik Bassel. Eventually, I will most-likely update the full rigging of Angie, as I have also changed a lot of my rigging techniques.This series is in 5 parts (9 installments) which run a little over four hours.

I am now working on a new video series called Controllers & Expressions that explains ways in which you can construct controllers directly on the composition panel in After Effects. I'll start with a very simple one dimensional slider-type controller, one that moves only on the X axis and contains positive integers, and work up to complex 2 dimensional controllers. I'll also do some comparisons…
If you have visited my website before the redesign of Don Q Media (donQmedia), you will notice I removed quite a bit of material, including the tutorials. I decided to change the focus of the website because it was becoming more of a distraction than an asset in reaching my goals. Sometimes, when you...
