Stuff From the Attic

I found a box containing the drawings from my BTEC Foundation animation, along with a good whiff of air left over from the mid 1990’s. I would have been 17 or 18 years old when I made this. It was originally shot on a roll of Super-8 film – which is now long lost to the mists of time.

So I decided to re-shoot using 21st Century technology (a creaky old iPad).

Now I’m able to watch it again, I can confirm that I still don’t have a clue what’s going on, but I do remember having a lot of fun making-it-up-as-I-went-along. I think there is a gangster clown in it, and it is his birthday.

See Hear on Tour Title Sequence

I was lucky enough to be allowed to design and animate the title sequence for BBC See Hear’s new mini-series; See Hear On Tour. I had loads of creative freedom, so it was great fun to work on, and, given the fast turnover, I’m actually quite pleased with the end result too! ( The non-title-sequence bits of the programme are also really good too – Check it out here ) Thanks, See Hear!

Just checking out the new Adobe Animate CC. It looks the same as the old Flash to me!

A Very Silly Gorilla

Another attempt at analogue animation. I’ve forgotten just how fast this sort of thing burns through pencils… Beginning to wonder if it might work out cheaper if I just invest in a big Cintiq and a TVPaint, or Harmony…. It is nice working on paper though.
