[UPDATE: The portfolio site is now up! Find it in the tab at the top of my blog, or go to !]

Into Production

Hi everyone!

We're properly into production now with our fabulous corner work space, our brilliant CG modeller has been giving us our background layouts, we've begun animating and my super-organised schedule to keep us on track can be seen in the bottom left of the right image. Pictured in our work-corner on the left is Josh, my collaborator, whose blog can be found here. On the right you can see Josh and Rhys lining up the camera in Rhys CG environment with the angle drawn in the animatic so we can render a frame  and use it as a background for our animation. Rhys is brilliant and you can find his work here. Below is a scribbled keyframe animation I did this morning to give you a taste of what we're up to!

Bye for now!

Colour Keys

One of the things I did before Christmas was colour keys. This is only one example, but it should give you an idea of what the final film will look like. Josh is responsible for the linework in this example, and I coloured four different versions over the top. Again, hopefully it gives you some indication of what our collaboration will look like in the end!

Building a Lighthouse

It goes without saying that when you're designing a film about a lighthouse keeper you have to draw lots and lots of lighthouses. We've gone from ordinary to fantastical, but the exploration had to end at some point with a final design! We have spent several days drawing every prop and every angle imaginable so that our CG buddies can model everything, and here is a very small taste for you.
