Prior to attending Cal Arts, David Wolter was a student of mine taking Character Design at The Animation Academy in Burbank, California.
I've been aware of this film for a while now, waiting for the opportunity to showcase it. It's available for public viewing on YouTube, so it's safe to share the video of David's fine hand drawn animated short film.
In addition to the final version, the animatic for Eyrie is available for review as well. Check out the planning for this film by heading to the corresponding topic on the AN Forums.
Word is that David is now employed at DreamWorks. Congratulations DreamWorks! You've got yourself another highly talented artist on staff.
