Final Film Tests 2

My final film is really coming a long now and im getting excited about animating new things that i have thought of doing. Im thinking about doing a book along side the film. i think it would really tie in with it really well. i think i definately will but need to focus on animating it first!

heres my latest 'animatic'

Final Film Tests

A lot has happend since i last updated. Just getting through my dissertation at the moment which is about surrealism in animation. But here are some tests ive done for my final film. The film doesnt have a title yet and is based on a stream of consiousness. My other film "i bought some really nice apples the other day" will be up soon just having problems uploading it onto anything because of our dodgy internet.

Final Film story boards

So my final film is really coming along now after a few tutorials. Ive made sure i have spoken to each tutor as each one of them has very different opinions to the other and they have helped me out so much. The best way to describe the imagery in the film is as an stream of consciousness.

I particularly dont like that term to describe it but il think of something better.

here are some images from the story board:

Planes, freshers party poster and flip animation festival

Lots of news recently. I have nearly finished my main film "i bought some really nice apples the other day" just needs all putting together now so im excited about that. but in the mean time heres my short "Can i have a egg sandwich, a few planes and a glass of orange juice please".

We also had a freshers party for the art students which was fun but drank far too much free red wine whilst trying to serve people. i did these posters the night before to try and get more people to come. i think it worked mostly because of the promise of free drink.

and finally "Bluuuuurgh" is going to be shown at Flip animation festival in the late night showing on the 7th of November which is good news.

Two new films!

Over the summer Argos didnt have any jobs so ive been stuck in Malvern doing lots of animation. Im moving to Cardiff at the start of September to film both the films, edit and add the sound on which has been recorded on a really old tape player (not sure how that will do but we will see, i think it might work).

more details soon.

Bluuuurgh now part of Spike and Mike Family

Im pleased to say that Bluuuurgh went down very well at comic con. The contract is signed and Bluuurgh will now be officially part of the new Spike and Mike show that will be touring all over the world. Just a huge thank you to Spike for this opportunity and my lecturers and class mates from the film school of Wales for all the support over the last couple of months.

Heres a video of Spike introducing the show at comic con where Bluuuurgh got shown:

group project: balloons

heres a film i helped work on with Sarah Williams, Ben Cady and jessica wainwright who are all very lovely people and very good animators. the films about apathy in the modern world. it was also my first experience with after effects which was a bit tricky but i am very happy with the out come. and if you get the chance check out ben, sarah and jess's animations as they all have some brilliant work.
