So its been a while, I’ve currently been really busy setting up a new company, Let’s Animate has now been created, to find out more information please read below or visit the site at http://www.letsanimate.co.uk
I have been an industry animator for over several years, producing work for a variety of companies such as Ragdoll Productions, Nestle, Yahoo and Ladybird Books.
Alongside the commercial work, I also facilitate animation workshops to an array of community groups, it is these workshops that I have developed a true passion and drive for.
Let’s Animate was created to help others to experience this passion and express themselves through the media of animation, allowing full participation as everyone experiements to create their very own animated movies from script to screen.
I hope you enjoy our work and hope to see you booked on a course.
Firstly let me apologise for the lack of blogging that has taken place since April, I have been a mega busy bunny with various projects.
I now promise to get back on track keeping the webby world up to date with my creativity.
Since my last blog I have been involved in three major projects, these were :
Project 01 – Pester Power
With a rise in small crimes in Coventry The West Midlands police decided it was time to take action.
They approached the Belgrade Theatre for help. The theatre suggested the creation of a series of stop motion animations based around these petty crimes that would then be shown within primary schools across Coventry and the Midlands, the aim was for the viewing young children to then go home and pester their parents on how to resolve these crimes, hence the name Pester Power.
I was called in by the Belgrade to help develop these ideas, working with selected pupils from President Kennedy, a secondary school in Coventry, I was to design, devise and create 5 short films based on petty crime subjects such as, internet safety, car crime, burglary, bullying and personal safety.
The project ran for 10 weeks and I will soon be showing these films on the ABG workshop youtube page.
Project 02 – Harpoon Marketing
Recently I was approached by Harpoon Marketing to create 4 viral demonstration videos to aid in the promotion of F&C Investments and what this company can offer. The animations were simple green screens with animated text and graphics.
you can view a selection of these animations here :
Project 03 – Direct Capital, Offerfuse
This was a lovely little project I completed for an American company called Direct Capital, they required a simple viral animation for their website to explain all about OfferFuse.
