Not a Modeller...Just a Poser!

This week is my final deadline week and although theres looooads of stuff to do...i mean like a phenominal amount, but, and my housemates (who are all animators too) will kill me for saying this...but I LOVE it!!!

Animating this week has been the most focused ive ever been, and although most of it is quote pants im enjoying it none the less.

Collaborating on the 2nd year films has prob been the biggest suprise. Ive loved getting lots of shots done in a stupid amount of time. devils playing air guitar, little boy falling for his first girlfriend and insane creatures leaping over tables.
once they are rendered i will stick them up here. but for now its back to MAX...

to keep me motivated i have been sticking podcasts in the back...Richard Williams wouldnt approve but makes me work harder...that and Red Bull!!!
heres the podcast link:

p.s / WHY IS THERE NO AUTOBACK ON MAX9....just thought of the day :D

Well today was insane!
I entered a competition that all the skill set acredited universitys were allowed to compete in.

I didn't really expect anything from it but last week the 2d lecturer asked me if i wanted to join another 3 people, journy to London and pitch to the creative directors of NICKELODEON!!
After i picked myself off the floor and stopped myself from hugging her I prepared.

I wasnt expecting anything. I LOVE designing ideas. Its my dream career...animating and creating the stories so this was the chance of a life time!

The studio itself was awesome! Bright orange with toys everywhere. felt like home :D
I was shaking for about 5 hours before i pitched and i went first.

I was in the meeting with the art director, creative directors and was insane i danced around a bit and pitched my idea...and somehow they seemed to like it!
they gave me some constructive critasisum which im taking onboard.....the story needs to work the kinks out so I will be bugging my friend 'Ed Hooks' to help me with my script

(Ed Hooks is one of my favourite actors and lecturers...he is a lovely lovely man who has all the time in the world for you!!...can't wait to go see him again soon!)

Other than that they decided to take all four of us to the next back to london i go in a month!AHHH
it feels like home there!

Sooooo much to do now. End of year showreel AND a treatment for my cartoon!


i will get some design work up here soon for u to have a gander at.
