Coraline B-roll

The more behind the scenes stuff you see from Laika the more your mind is blown! It’s unreal what these guys can do. I can’t wait to see Box Trolls, their next film. Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, but follow the link below it’s incredible!

Susan Young

Last week Susan Yong gave a lecture at college. I really love her fluid and imaginative animations, we are so lucky to have her talk in depth about her process. She is such an interesting person too, she’s doing some really brilliant research at the Royal College at the moment about animation as therapy.

Re-dic-ulous!

I didn’t think they could get any cooler… but in ‘Cool Bikes’ they got so cool they threw off the balance of cool in the universe: http://www.watchcartoononline.com/regular-show-season-3-episode-7-cool-bikes

RUBBER HOSE ANIMATION/Gotye

YouTube Preview Image

Gotye has a bunch of animated music videos, this one with skeleton paper cutouts is one I hadn’t seen before.

Below is my favourite: Seven Hours Without A Backseat Driver. It’s a dichotomy of cute and creepy, simple yet complex. Great song too. Animated by the Australian animation studio Rubber House. More than enough to make you want to move to Melbourne! http://www.rubberhousestudio.com/

BOARD

another board I used in my presentation:

The ever awesome Kim Shattuck from the Muffs in the shades! Joan in ‘Strait Jacket’ with an Axe. Piggy and Kermit…etc.

I was talking to Darryl about lighting today. I’ve got some night-time scenes to shoot. One trick he suggested was showing lights, a street lamp or an illuminated widow to give the effect of night, without making it too dark to see. Tips from the movie world!

CSM Digital Present Interview

Imogen Everson interviewed me about my blog for the Digital Present blog that is all about developing the use of “digital tools” as part of our education.

She selected a bunch of images from my blog which is rad. Thanks Imogen. Here’s what I said:
