I filmed the animation/film when i went to see a few djs play in Manchester at The Warehouse, its an underground venue, mainly used for djs. The graphics really caught my eye and i just wanted to show you what the design was like and the event was like! Was an amazing night!


TEN Magazine Animation!!!

January 13, 2009

This is the 5th attempt at an animation for my magazine 10. Its a little bit rough round the edges but im pretty proud of it for my final piece. The idea that it was created all by hand and hand animated like the animations i’ve posted up on my blog. I’m not a fan of Flash and find its not a fan of me so we keep our distance 😀 Anyway i hope you enjoy it as much i liked making it, even though i think i might have a repetitive strain injury!

largeimg-3I’ve already mentioned before in the animation part, but Rachel Thomas has to have a bigger part in my inspiration blog! Set designer, art director and overall genius, Thomas works with Big Active creating amazing works for Nike and Orange to name a few. Her work consists of large props colourful settings and fun and playful ideas creating her very own world of fun. She works with a select group of photographers to bring her work to life and give it that extra dimension to her work. Her work with balloons she recalls comes from the notion of them being rude and sexual in a disturbing way! But it is her work for orange that really caught my eye, with the massive props playing out the story to the narration. Anyway look at her work on big active and you will fall in love with her work!

I think this guys been posted on blogs more times than I’ve had hot dinners, but whilst you’re here you might as well take a look at him if you havent already, hes a legend, and gosh doesn’t me make you want to get into paper engineering.

Snickers Don’t Stop!!

Found this amazing video via Itsnicethat.com, made by Valkieser, they used a technique called motion capture that can record and animate and form using the human bodies movements, like those little green balls you see sometimes on the making of, of large budget movies. “Although the final commercial was always meant to be PAL (720-576) we did the whole post in HD (1920-1080) to get the best possible results in motion-tracking and compositing.

This is a cracker, the first time i saw this i couldnt stop laughing, absolutly brilliant. Their website aint to shabby either!

These guys have got an amazing sense of humor, but not only that they’ve worked for some big names, NIKE, Orange, and PSP, my favorite from their own animations is this one, because of all the little ideas for a wizards meal, absolutely brilliant! I can’t post all their animations so go to their website and check them all out, you’ll be there for hours!!!
