My First Commission.

So, whilst I’m on here updating you about my 2013, it would make sense to mention what was probably my biggest achievement of the year. I was asked by my university (Cardiff University) to create an animation for them called “5 Reasons Students Love Cardiff”. You can watch it below.

Creating the animation was such a huge project for me, the first of anything like it that I have done. Here are a few of the stills from the production process.

The process was based on how I have animated in the past – creating and colouring in line drawings frame by frame in Photoshop. This meant I had to save almost every time I drew a line or coloured in a small section which did get quite frustrating. There must be an easier way!

Does any one else animate in this way or have any suggestions?

In an exciting turn of events I actually got asked to do another commission following on from a potential client seeing this video. This animation is now finished and I am hoping to share it with you as soon as it has been released by the company!

Watching the Works

I spent the majority of last weekend enjoying the fabulous fireworks in Cardiff. It was the first opportunity I have taken to have a go at some ‘street’ photography, I’m usually terrified of people shouting at me for taking a picture without asking them – so here goes! Let me know what you think everyone!

 

 

 

Thanks for looking everyone, hope you have all had a lovely week!
