Work Experience Log: VFestival 2013

It has been a long and hot summer and I am finally done with the work placement at Butch Auntie. Having worked with the studio before on three other projects that taught me so much about projection mapping and animation, the last project for Virgin Media's VFestival was no different.

We started out with briefs involving animal collages and surreal images with bright and bold colours that were extremely evocative.
There was neon signage and eyeballs in light bulbs but finally, what got approved were the images of flowers exploding in a city and their variants.

 Working on this animation gave me a lot of freedom to experiment with Adobe After Effects and I learned some cool new tricks that I didn't know of before.

This time spent working with Butch Auntie also got me inspired for the upcoming projects for my third year at university and I hope that works out well.

This is a video where you can see the work I did for this project...The animation on the wall behind the singer (Who is called Dominique Young Unique, apparently) and the DJs from 2:08 minutes onwards is mine. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!

FAO Simon: Summer Speed Painting: The Dragon Queen

Having watched Game of Thrones recently, it was rather difficult to get Daenerys Targaryen, The Mother of Dragons, out of my mind. I did look at 'fire' characters such as Prince Zuko from Avatar and Edward Elric from Full Metal Alchemist (Who has nothing to do with fire but his characteristics do put me in mind of fire a lot). I tried to keep the reptilian aspect to a minimum and wanted the eyes to pop out. She does breathe fire, don't worry. I wouldn't say she is a dragon, really. But she has the traits of one. Hope you like it!

Let me know what you think =)

FAO Simon: Summer Speed Painting: The Crystal Maze

Step into this labyrinth of Pyrite and other crystal. It is the Kingdom Of Light where the rays make you see things that you want to believe. The trick is knowing what is real and what isn't. Good luck getting out.....

I hope you like my interpretation of 'The Crystal Maze". Let me know what you think =)

Hands and Nerves: Research: Much Better Now

This stop motion video has really given me some ideas regarding the going about of things:

And here is the 'Making Of'video:

Hands and Nerves: Research: Hudson- Against The Grain

I'm just checking out stop motion animations, really. I was very attracted to this video due to the clever use of objects to depict the story.
