Commander Cluck – iPhone Game
I wrote, developed, directed and co-produced an (endless runner) iphone game about a Space Rooster who squishes Aliens.
I had producing help from Kiran Rao, and code development help from Mike Chiaburu and X-dev Studios.

Magnetism – Short Film
Magnetism was my MFA thesis film from the Academy of Art University. It played in over 60 festivals around the world, earning 3 awards and distribution on Nickelodeon and Atom Films.
Previs uses 3D animation to “conceptualize” the look and feel of shots. This helps determine production strategy and cost estimation. I had a ton of fun playing with virtual action figures, and blowing up stuff in the computer.

Comics & Cartoons
As a cartoonist and writer, I’ve had development deals with Fox and Comedy Central, in addition to a few independent productions.
I maintain a regular comic blog at Nyetoon.

|Hello, my name is Nye and, when I was a kid, I built transforming robots out of Lego.
In 2004, I made a film about the problem of like-polarity robots who fall in love. Magnetism earned me my MFA, won awards, played in international film festivals, and landed me in the animation industry. I have worked for Electronic Arts, Sony Imageworks, Fox, Blur, Proof, Digital Domain and The Third Floor. I’ve worked on a number of big budget feature films.
As a content creator, I have landed three development deals; two in cartoon animation and one in iphone/game development.
For the last two years I’ve been working with start ups to create games and creative networks. It’s an exciting time for innovation, so drop me a line if you are in need of some creative direction for your awesome ideas! I’m really really interested in how gamification can help education and health.
And if you are a student or aspiring animator, don’t be shy! Ask me questions, I love teaching and helping out driven people.
