Its been a couple of months since I finished in the museum and I realised I haven't shown you the film yet! I'm going to rectify that right away

It was a tight turnaround but I feel reasonably happy with what I've acheived. I've certainly learned a lot and it was really nice to be able to talk to people about animation all day long. Well it was a fun experience and I hope that people are able to enjoy the final product as well.



The animation is finally finished! From now on we are just focusing on cleaning up the work scanning it in and doing editing on the computer. Here are some tests of the raw animation.

My volunteers Emma and Harry did loads of tests for me at the museum but my computer doesn't seem to like it. Mac, windows personality clash. So I can only show you the bits I filmed myself at home. Anyway must get back to work. Cheerio.



Currently in the process of editing some photographs to use as backgrounds in the animation. Here are some of my favourites. I now have photos for about 80% of the backgrounds done which is a real relief

From Saturday I've been working on the film full time so hopefully the production rate will start increasing. I also have a few volunteers working on the film this week who are hopefully going to introduce themselves soon. Watch this space.



Animatic for the film. If you've seen me around the museum this is what I have been working from for the basic story and timings. Just for reference the orange character is a spy and the blue character is a policeman. The soundrack is still in progress so you'll have to cope with it silent for now. Hoping to upload some more progress videos next week. See you in the museum on Sunday!



Tried putting some characters into the backgrounds to see what it looks like. I'm starting to get the feeling that I almost know what I'm going to be doing. Its quite reassuring, it doesn't feel like I'm stumbling around in the dark anymore.

I quite like the background showing through but only if its clear enough for the audience. Which looks better? Dark or light?



Started doing some character design yesterday..

This isn't what the final characters will look like, just playing with shapes at the moment to see what looks good. What do you think?



Hello there everyone! My residency in the RAMM kicks off in January but the preparations start now. I hope to be able to show you the first steps right here very soon. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out the 'About' page where you can get a brief introduction to the project. See you soon!
