I am 23!

I have spent the bank holiday weekend celebrating my birthday by seeing my family and friends and enjoyed taking a few days off work. ^-^ I thought I would post some photographs of my birthday cakes made by my Mum and sister, they were delicious! We also had lots of fun decorating the cupcakes together.
yum! yum! yum!

South Park - The Making of.



I absolutely love South Park so I was pretty excited when they released these videos showing the technical process behind the show. This two part episode, The Pandemic was a Randy heavy episode so naturally one of my favourites ^-^
Just thought I would share, check it out -> here <-

Origin of the Milky Way - Projected Image


This photograph is of the paper cinema test carried out a few weeks ago. It was posted on the Horse + Bamboo website so I thought I would share it here as well. I am planning on creating the rest of the elements for the paper cinema today which will be mostly clouds as well as Zeus and the mortal Alcmene.
I've got a busy day ahead of me! ^-^

A Late August Update

Hello! I have been a very bad blog keeper these last few weeks. I have being doing lots of work on Deep Time Cabaret but most of it is preparation work so I don't actually have anything to post about.

The deadline for this project is fast approaching! Only about a month left until everything needs to be completed. I am working on 5 separate things for the production plus the online education pack and a making of film. These things will be keeping me very busy for the next month but I do have a couple of personal projects I have started which I will update about soon.

I also have had a weekend away in Bath to give myself a little bit of time off. It was a great trip just not long enough! The city of Bath is lovely! I fell in love with all the oldness instantly, I guess I just have a thing for old buildings :) We did the touristy thing and paid to go look around the Roman Baths which was pretty cool. I now want to plan another trip there so I can actually use the spa facilities in the city centre. ^-^

On another note I am looking at entering this competition... to win a trip to Pixar Studios. I have realised how little animating I have been doing recently so I really want a project to get me back into it all. This seemed like the perfect opportunity, plus I would be in with a chance to win a trip to the U.S. ^-^ All I need to do is create an original animated short with the theme of "an animated adventure"... time to get out the thinking cap!! ^-^
