Here's a super fast shot from my film that contains no spoilers. It's coming together! I'll re-post this when i have more time looped as it's only a second and a bit long. Let me know what you think.

Re-posting the Blue Ball test through Vimeo because it seems to be more reliable. I'll be posting all videos using Vimeo from now on. I have done a bit more work on that wee orange character which i will hopefully be posting later today.

I am currently re-working my animatic. Over the last two weeks i have gotten some great advice from people in the industry and they're all saying the same thing; to make things as tight as possible. So i am trimming where i can on my animatic to make my film shorter, but the story is far more in depth than Nunzilla (my second year film) and i am trying not to lose that depth. I am taking away, but then i am adding new little shots to make everything clearer. It's driving me nuts! I'm at the end of my teather. If anyone can offer any advice, please do.

The trip to London yesterday, pardon my french, blew my f***ing mind. It was a long day but an amazing one. We drove up on a mini coach, visited Blue Zoo, Passion Pictures, Double Negative and Cinesite and then drove back the same day. I would like to go into detail on all of them but have no time at the mo, so i'll just mention my favourite. Passion Pictures is where i want to be at some point, it was brilliant there. Similar to another favourite of mine, Studio AKA, they seem to be open to working in many different ways, creating new and exciting work (check there website www.passion-pictures.com . Be sure to hyphonate it! You've been warned). Whilst i was there i did bear witness to some behind the scenes/making of stuff of a certain cartoon band's new music video and animated shorts. I'm a big fan of the band and i can't really say what i saw because they made us swear we wouldn't, but what i did see looked super-duper cool! It's the Gorillaz!
I'm rambling. After a long long day in uni today i am almost back on track and schedule with my film. I do have some concept art stuff i am doing for A Productions but it is having to take a back seat at the moment as uni comes first. Above is a cruddy 1 or 2 minute doodle. Below is something from a wee project i started last November which i have been adding little bits to as i go and is kind of merging with another idea i have which is very exciting. It began as semi-autobiographical and this a comic sketch i did on the day i first read manga. It's probably funny to no one other than me and my mate, John. There are probably lots of other things i wanted to say but have forgotten as it's 2.15 AM and i didn't want this to turn into a massive boring post, but hey, look what happened....

We have to do an interesting CV as part of our business module, so i took sunday to do it and this is pretty much what i came up with. It's going to be a booklet, so these are the page spreads, they're in a random order because thats how they need to be printed to make the booklet. I'm not entirely happy with it, but i don't have the time to make drastic changes, i just want to get on with my film!!!
