Showreel Intro Test

Over the past few days, I have been coming up with an idea for a intro for my final show reel for University. I finished it today, and I'm exited to share it with you.


I never new After Effects could do so much cool stuff to be honest with you! Its true that you learn something new every day. :)

My next post will be about my top 5 companies that I would like to work for in the future, this is for my business project so expect a good read because I have to make it 3000 words, so 600 words per company.

See you on the next one,

Portfolio Website 3.0 Animation Page Design

Hey peoples, I thought that I would show you some more progress I've made on the re-construction and re-design of my portfolio website, this is what the animation page is looking like.


This is a pretty final design for the animation page, however might make a few changes concerning the images, but that's all. All I have to do now on the website is re-design the photography and design page.

See you on the next one,

Major Project Collaborative Pre-Production Work

With my major project pre-production out of the way I'd show you some of the work that I've been doing for the collaborative game project.

During the course of the game project I'm responsible for the body mechanic animations and two cut scenes for the game, additionally I'm also overseeing some of the second year animators who have joined in on our project who are doing body-mechanic animations.

Here are my thumbnails for the body mechanics that I will be animating in production.


I also created animatics of all of my body mechanics that from my thumbnails and also using video reference. I'm unable to upload the videos to blogger because it will take a long time to upload around 10 videos to this post. I didn't have a chance to do my cut-scene pre-production however I've been working on it this week and last week, so its all coming together well. I need to re-record a few bits of reference also. Production starts on Monday and I can't wait to get into it!

See you on the next one,

Major Project Personal Pre-Production Work

Hey all, I'm finally back after some hefty nights staying up to complete work for my major project pre-production, but now all that's done I've had time to relax a bit and focus my attention towards other things like my business module (which I have to make a blog post for also) and my final major project production.

So for my personal project I decided that I wanted to create a 20 second animation sequence with a tiger doing various movements, like jumping, running, walking and so on, additionally I wanted to make a on the spot run cycle too for the tiger animation. Moreover, I also wanted to create a 5 second dragon flight cycle.

First of all I decided to do some action sheets:


These are some action sheets of bat's and eagles for the dragon flight cycle:


Moving on to the thumbnails for the Tiger:

These are my initial thumbnails. 

Using my initial thumbnails I was able to create thumbnail sequences to help me develop my animation idea.

This is my final thumbnail sequence for my tiger animation:


Finally this was the animation I created from my final thumbnail sequence, although it is only 10 seconds I plan to add more anticipation at parts and run and walk sections to the animation:

Unfortunately I was not able to create thumbnails for my dragon flight cycle because I had to focus on my collaborative project pre-production, however I have the video reference I need for both the dragon and the tiger sequence so hopefully all will go smoothly in the production stage.

See you on the next one,
