Ironkids...

Yet again it's been a while since I've updated this blog but I've been ridiculously busy for a while now. But I recently finished this piece, done in my spare time with my friend Andy Lavery. I animated it but he pretty much did everything else. He wanted to do something which involved live action and VFX as he'd never really done it before, and I wanted to turn my kids into superheroes!!

Flight of the Stories

Here's a film I did a little bit of work on a few weeks ago animating some of the foreground flying quotation marks. It's for the Imperial War Museum in London and was directed by Darren Dubicki.

Skin Meal

It's been a while but I thought I'd post an update. All my time is pretty much taken up animating commercials, but every now and then I get to work on stuff that's slightly different. Here is a link to Karni and Saul's film Skin Meal. I animated the spider and stag beetle (although not on every shot) I've also finished animating the short film that I'm making with Andy Lavery and it will hopefully be ready for Christmas, since it's Christmas themed. We're in the process of putting some sound on it and then it'll be onto the final push of lighting, rendering and compositing. I've learnt one lesson doing this film and it's never have a single locked camera for two flamin minutes!

Gangnam Style!

My wife recorded my 3 year old son singing Gangnam Style a few weeks back, and I thought it would be fun to animate it. So last week I had a bit of spare time so I did. Thanks to Andy lavery for lighting and compositing the thing. I've got another sound recording of my kids singing the superman theme which is funny and I hope to get time to do something with that too.

The Staves "Winter Trees"

This is a music promo we recently finished at work using a combination of CGI and flash. It was made in a ridiculously fast time but it turned out looking great! It was also a good think that I enjoyed listening to the song otherwise it could've been painful! To be honest I'd never heard of the band but watch this space because they're going to be big in 2013!
