Animation Insider

Mike Milo of Animation Insider has been nice enough to ask if I wanted to do an interview for his website. Of course I was happy to oblige. Read it HERE.

New job

I've just finished my first week at Framestore, where I'm helping out with some animation on the upcoming Marvel comic-turned-to-movie extravaganza "Guardians Of The Galaxy". It's been 6 years since I've worked in visual effects (at the time I was involved with "Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix" and "10,000 B.C." At MPC) and it sure takes some getting used to the involved pipelines again, but the team here is great and I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun. I've seen large portions of the film and just like last year's "The Avengers" that it ties into, it's a lot of silly tongue in cheek fun.

Meanwhile the Cuthbert short is chugging along slowly. Uli and I have started storyboarding, but with Christmas looming and the new job progress will be near non existent until mid Jan.

Cuthbert Art For Sale!

Galerie Daniel Maghen in Paris is offering the original pen & ink and watercolour illustrations of Uli's picture book 'Cuthbert was bored'. Incredible art if you ask me. The proceeds of the sale will go towards realising the short film. Where that's concerned I'd like to share that we're happy with the story outline we've been chipping away at and as of today we start storyboarding!
