First Match-Moving Tests

These are the first tests I've ever created using Matchmover. Incredibly basic so that I can get feedback on how to improve but I actually had a lot of fun doing them, despite some initial technical incompatabilities! Time was limited so excuse the dodgy masking. It really is quite a monster of a building...

Manifesto of Futurist Architecture

Turn the volume up and listen to the madness. There is no picture.

"The Futurist Manifesto of Architecture"
Sant'Elia 1914 

This is a poor recording I made earlier of the Futurist Architecture Manifesto written by Sant'Elia [and most likely Marinetti] in 1914. The original manifesto accompanied Sant'Elia's New Tendencies exhibition and is a mad and enigmatic piece of writing. I recorded it in order to help me begin to formulate a narrative to my Master's film, so I could listen to it on the move while at Waverley itself and to get across some of the frantic speed and language used by the Futurist's. I hope at some point to get a professional or fellow male student to record it and play around with some typography/ sound bites for the film. The youtube link below is a similar idea but is a recording of the original Futurist manifesto from 1909. Love it or hate it it is certainly dynamic stuff!

Post 400! Have a Shoe!

I would of liked to have done something epic for post number 400 however i like the silliness of it being a shoe. Baby steps towards modeling Tom and Ada in Maya for Leap Year. Its been a while and I have lost the model three times but its a learning process and one which i am starting to enjoy! Once they are modeled I can't wait to test out 2D textures onto them and fellow animator and friend Rudy has offered to help me rig them, a lot of tea and pints will be heading his way! However advice is needed as I really don't have 
much clue how I should be doing this!

Under The Bridges

Monday, 10 October 2011


This is a storyboard panel, piece of concept art and a figurative attempt to help me figure the size of this monstrosity. It is also a fun 2D exercise to do while I figure out what slant or message the film should have. Its becoming a huge project but for a morning it was nice to be back in the realm of 2H pencils. Its much prettier though much the same size in real life...

28.09.2011 Context + Review Presentation


This is a video of the presentation I gave on Alex Roman's film The Third and The Seventh to the Master's class on 28.09.2011. The brief was to choose a film or artist who inspired us and critically review the work to explain why we find it inspirational and how the piece will influence the work we will be doing in the coming year. 

Apologies for the quality of the picture and the sound. It will be re-recorded at some point in the future. As always, thanks for watching.

Full making of:

Roughed Out Bedrooms

These are the last of the backgrounds, now that they are roughed out, Brian can begin his animation and I can spend the time up until the deadline making them more coherent and importantly, prettier. Also the window angle WILL be changed..

I have no idea what I'm doing. I think it's fun though.
