Stuart Little 2 (2002)
Two years have passed since we last visited the Little family and much has changed. Stuart has blossomed and settled nicely into his new life. He goes to school (in his very own car), is very handy when it comes to building model airplanes and is proud of the fact he made the soccer team. He loves having a big brother, George and new baby sister, Martha with whom he can play. Even Snowbell, the curmudgeonly cat with an attitude, has warmed up to Stuart in his own way. All is well in the Little world, but even so, Stuart yearns for a friend of his own--someone like him. Driving home from school, Stuart hears a loud squawk and suddenly an injured bird falls out of the sky, landing in the passenger seat of his car. When she regains consciousness, the mysterious bird introduces herself as Margalo. Frightened, she tells Stuart she is being threatened by Falcon, a feared crime lord who terrorizes all creatures living Manhattan. When Stuart learns the Margalo doesn't have a place to live he insists she stay with the Littles. Mr. and Mrs. Little immediately accept Margalo and, much to Snowbell's chagrin, welcome her to stay as long as she wants. It's obvious for all to see that Stuart has a crush on the charming and beguiling bird who promises him adventure... but Margalo is hiding a dark secret and is not what she appears to be. When she mysteriously vanishes, the unlikely duo of Stuart and Snowbell set out on long journey to find her unlock the mystery. The furry duo has no idea where they are headed--all Stuart knows is he has to find Falcon's lair and get Margalo back.

Life as a House (2001) as Special Effects Coordinator
George Monroe has had a lifelong ambition to achieve one of the great American Dreams: to build his own home, a refuge set on a cliff at the end of the sea. But it's a dream that George has put off again and again while he's sunk lower and lower--ending up divorced, overworked and estranged not only from friends and family, but from himself. Now George has hit rock bottom and there's nowhere to go... except out onto the edge. His neighbors despise his sagging, dilapidated shack. His teen-aged son would rather stare into space than raise a finger to help him. His ex-wife, who once shared his dream, is now emotionally distant from him. Local city officials want to sabotage his plans. It seems there is no one left with any faith in him. But George is determined to build this house--even if it means refurbishing his entire life. He begins the project alone, but soon attracts a disparate group of people. What begins as a way for George to redeem his own dreams turns into something much bigger...

Nutty Professor, The (1996) as Special Effects
For Professor Sherman Klump, being the big man on campus wasn't all it's cracked up to be. His body was disproportionate. His family was dysfunctional. And his love life was disastrous. Having tried everything--diets, exercise and weight loss experts--in an unsuccessful attempt to shed some of his 400 pounds, Sherman Klump invents a revolutionary fat gene formula. Testing it on himself, he discovers he's no longer the man he used to be; in fact, he's only half the man he used to be. With one swig, the gentle, painfully shy academic is transformed into the swaggering Casanova, Buddy Love--an irresistible ladies' man who can talk his way out of any predicament. This new personality gives Sherman the confidence to pursue the chemistry department's beautiful new professor, Carla Purty. Indeed everything, to Sherman's utter amazement, is beyond his most perfect dreams--until he discovers that his long-lasting creation is actually an unstable substance that can wear off at any time.
