A spot for the Humane Society of Indiana. I provided character design, storyboarding, animatics, animation and compositing. The clients chose a totally B&W look. This is my sepia toned director’s cut. I have also reinstated early versions of some shots, which I think add a little more ‘drama’. The production companies involved were Fivestone Studios (Nashville) and Good Vibes Media (Indianapolis). This is the second time I’ve worked with Fivestone in recent months, which I’ve enjoyed very much. They are a talented, capable and pleasant crew.
Mostly character animation from music, game and short film projects. I did animation, layout, composite and most character design on everything except the clips from a Modestep video – where my principal task was color painting in the graphic novel sense. Creative Immortal handled general production, with Alex Young illustrating. Character concepts were also provided for the xKore video.
A mostly After Effects animated music video for Modestep, I am credited as Animation Lead Colourist. I painted all of Alex Young’s line art. That is all the character animation except for the concert scenes. It was great working with Richard Payne, who is currently directing at NTSH London. See more of the art after the break.
This is a really fun project. I was given a list of characters and then put on a very long leash. Actually, I even came up with the idea for the surfing Sumo. I did surf for several years, and then paddled a whitewater kayak. There is a small amount of overlap in these experiences, giving me a wealth of ideas.
This was a very interesting design project. The animation had to illustrate a story from ancient Korean folklore, and at the same time be connected to a modern drama. The film director, Angela Park, had a logical idea of progression in the animation look, but the starting point needed a delicate touch.
