25fps Sting

 
 
A promotional sting for the animation department at Staffordshire University, where I-kon dances to some tunes. The third week long project for the short films module. The brief was to collaborate in pairs to animate a short sting.
     I collaborated with Vanessa Hill on this project. We worked together during the pre and post production stages. I animated the first half of the clip while Vanessa animated the second. Working on this was interesting because we filmed the dance routine then used photoshop to rotoscope the frames. This was a very different experience to how I usually work.

Thief - Onomatopoeia

                                                      
 
A forest spirit invades a camp to steal a drink.
Ono of my week long tasks for the short film module. The brief was to make a 30 second animation featuring a chosen list of six sound effects. I also used this film as a test for one of my ideas for my main project. This film was a challenge to me because I had to animate much quicker than I normally do..
sounds were all taken from freesound. created by
- kyster, spaztastic, adjebor, agaxly, cemegar, cmusounddesign, percyduke, voliveri, q-k.

Whew. So I'm finally back but I do have a good excuse for not posting, I've been busy finishing everything for both the three weeks in October and the Summer project, parts of the short film module at Uni. but  I'm finished now so here is the first animation that I completed for this year.
 
 
A small creature finds a bubble and decides to play.
completed for the 9 prepositions week long task for the short films module at uni. This little project helped me to get back into the swing of things after the summer break. It was also an interesting exercise in animating straight onto the computer.

Paintings.

Some older digital paintings that I thought I'd already put up here.
