I challenged myself to make an animation in 1 day, and although it spilled over into 2 because I had to go to the shops, it was a fun little side project.
Pleasure Island is still coming...eventually...also, I started my third year film project, it features Cliff and Herb (from Mooselove) grappling with social dynamics and deadly spiders in the office.
Hey hey hey hey,
Well I've just had 3 months off animating. Why, you ask? I had to work so I could afford to go to Uni this year. What do I study? Animation, of course. Perverse, isn't it? Well I didn't HAVE to take 3 months off but when I get home from work I don't have the patience to do colouring and inbetweening and lip syncing and all that stuff so I thought I'd try something different and have been working on a webcomic, called Fernando's Specialty.
Anyway the real purpose of this is to let anyone who's mildly curious know that I've jumped back into the flash project and it will be turning up sooner or later, it's called Pleasure Island.
It's been over three and a half months since my last submission to NG!!! It's been a busy period but I've finally finished The Horseman Show. It started out as an assignment for Uni but I kept adding to it, partly so that it made more sense, and partly because it was a fun project to work on. At the very least I learnt a lot about lip syncing while making this so if nothing else it was worthwhile for that.
Firstly, I think it's awesome that NG has included my "Red Ball" flash in the Bytesize window. Thanks NG! Hope it stands up to the other ones!
Anyhoo, I've just been on holidays for the last month, back to uni day after tomorrow. I am currently looking for work, so a combination of holiday plus having no job means my mind has existed in a realm resembling the twilight zone this past month, and it's been awesome apart from the germs that have dared to plague my immune system during this time of hedonistic revelry. Other news: the guy across the road ploughed into my car the ONE TIME i parked it on the street, so I currently have no car as it is busy having it's rear passenger door replaced.
I sense the indifference out there, so here's where I am with flash: I have been working on short action bits for a new animation about Fernando, but, frustrated with the slow pace of this project, I have started something else with much simpler character designs in the hope that I can explore movement more without having to worry about spending hours on making sure the keyframes are just so. Looking beyond these two projects and the next few months, at this point I hope to make a House of Squid 2 flash. Uni will of course attempt to rape my schedule, and I will of course fight it and my grades will suffer, such is life.
The pic is me at my girlfriend's 19th, apparently I found the hat and went with it.
