The Proposal

The Proposal from Joey D. on Vimeo.

Finally part 2 of The Adventures of the Walking Box. So I secretly gathered all of my girlfriend's artwork, scanned them in and animated them in an effort to ask her to marry me. Each scene is based on things we've done together, places we've visited, or things about her that I appreciate and love about her so much. To see more of her art please visit her website at

Thanks to Chris Neeley for helping me shoot this very important end scene and to Surachai and Marco Morales for adding all the sound effects.

The Fakeout

The Adventures Of The Walking Box from Joey D. on Vimeo.

a.k.a. "Part 1: The Fakeout". This was basically created to fakeout my girlfriend into thinking that this was a student film I made in college. It's based on an idea that I did in high school that she really liked. In reality it was all a setup to totally blindside her with Part 2: "The Proposal". Please enjoy the adventures of the walking box as he wanders aimlessly all around Chicago on a quest to find happiness...

Special thanks to Mito Habe-Evans for helping me film this. Check out her site at:
Also thanks to Marco Morales for helping with the final audio mix:
