I just realized I haven't introduced myself. My name is Tony Cabrera and I am studying computer animation at the Ringling School of Art and Design. I am originally from a small city in the Los Angeles area called Lennox but I moved to Florida 3 years ago to attend the best school for computer animation in the U.S.

I am currently interning with EA (Electronic Arts), in Emeryville, CA at their MAXIS studio. I am working on an upcoming game by the creator of The Sims, Will Wright. The game is called SPORE and it is revolutionary title coming to gamers sometime next year. I am not sure how much I can say about the game, just click here and watch the demo video for an explanation.

I move back home to L.A. in 2 weeks when my internship is over and move back to Florida 2 weeks later to start my final year of school. I will spend the year producing my senior thesis, a 2 minute computer animated short. At Ringling every student works on their own piece, that means I will be modeling, rigging, texturing, animating, and lighting everything. It is going to be a very busy year, what else is new. Thankfully I will be going through this experience with my fellow classmates who's work inspires me every day and my teachers will be there to guide me when deadlines get tight.

I'll keep updating this site throughout the year with thesis progress and other random sketches and doodles, so check back from time to time if you are interested.
