Best Friends

Well i finally got around to finishing it!

I learnt heaps from making this. I really got to know flash a lot better, and got some good practise in after effects.

I'm working on a couple of other bits animation for my real, so watch out for them.

plus I've decided that I'm always going to be working on something in my spare time. i think it's good to have something there to keep chipping away at with out any pressure. OK, the downside is that it will probably take a long to make, as there is no schedule. but the upside is you'll never have that disappointed feeling of a boghed job because you had to rush to meet a deadline.

I've got two little short promo shorts I'm thinking about doing, one for my brother Instantbarber.

Also my friend wrote a beautiful story that I thought would make a great short film. we applied for funding to make it, but got rejected so I'm planing on making it one of my projects I chip away at.

please feel free to leave me any comments, and feel totally free to critiques this piece as it will give me stuff to think about for future projects.

Testing, testing, 1, 2, testing

Here's a still from what will probably be the final look for the short. I've done all the animation but I've still gotta do a simple background and take care of the sound, so I think it will be done by early next week, hopefully sooner.

It's not quite how i envisioned it in my head, but when is it ever. I wanted it to look more like pastel on paper.

if you wanna give me any comments or tips on the look, please feel free to. I'd love to get your opinion on how you think it looks.

It's Coming

I been working on that frog, kid short i posted the animatic for a while back. I'm basically done now, just gotta animate one more thing. but I'm gonna experiment with how it's composited, the idea is to make it look like it was drawn in pastel, so I'm not gonna post the whole film until I've got a result I'm happy with. i don't think it will take me more than a week or so.

but just a taster here's a run cycle i just did.
