A tiny bit more stop-motion

I’ve been working on the drawn part of my film for the last couple of weeks without much time in the stop-motion studio. Got in there today to do some parts that I really wanted to add at the beginning. Think I got a really nice image to put on my business card.shadow

 

Inbetweens

Working with TVPaint is great, I really like this software, of course I’m just using a fraction of it but it’s good to use this project to get to grips with it a bit more. I tried it a tiny bit on the last project but couldn’t get the hang of it. Thanks to Darryl and Elodie from TVPaint I’m going somewhere with it now! It has such a brilliant light table feature that brings it really close to paper animation… minus the scanning. Love it!!

Stop-motion shoot

Last week I got to work 3 days on a commercial stop-motion shoot for a production company called Asylum Films. I can’t post my behind the scenes pics until it’s released but it was really fun work, a really great experience! It was at Clapham Road Studios where they make a lot of the best stop-motion work in London. I liked everyone I worked with, so I hope there’s a chance to work with them again. Long hours but they flew by because the work was so enjoyable! Stop-motion is so awesome!

Exhibition at LTM

The opening at the London Transport Museum went really well, it was so nice to see everyone’s work exhibited there and we all appreciated having the special screening and watch them all again. Nice work everybody!

Back to the Trip project…

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!
