47 Rollins

December 2, 2013

Get ready, it’s almost here…

47 Rollins - 47 Ronin with Henry Rollins and Keanu Reeves

As excited as I am about the prospect of 47 Ronin (+1 Keanu) running around kicking ass and taking numbers, the idea of Henry Rollins doing the same appeals to me a little bit more for some reason.

If anyone else agrees with me and has a bunch of money just lying around and can get both Henry Rollins and Keanu Reeves involved I have a plot for the film and everything. It would be the next (possibly first) great American action/musical epic.

Cold Call

January 4, 2012

What better way to start the year than with a nice little bit of animation?!?

I am often asked by people ‘how long does it take to make/complete an animation?‘ And I find it slightly frustrating, not because I don’t have an answer but because the answer I usually give never seems quite adequate enough and I am often rewarded with a blank face still expecting an answer.

I will clarify it. How long is a piece of string? There are so many variables.

It comes down to three things; Time (as in time available vs looming deadline) Money/Man power and Technique/quality. These determine more or less how long an animation (or anything else for that matter) will take.

The more people producing images, backgrounds and or colouring, etc means things will be quicker as they can all work in tandem. The more detailed or complex the drawings are or fluid the animation is the longer it will take as each individual image has to be drawn.

This animation should have taken a week to complete but ended up being spread out over a month and taking a little longer. Which is odd since there isn’t a lot going on or even any colour. The rough animation was done fairly quickly, and it was the cleaning up that took the longest.

Joshua Wins a Prize!

January 18, 2011

I won a prize for a little competion I did at the freshers fair what seems like a year ago.

The competition was part of ECCAs Enterprise Week 2010. The question was something along the lines of ‘How would I use £10 to make more money or kickstart my career?‘ I’m not exactly sure of the specifics.

I had forgotten about the whole thing until someone forwarded me a link to my entry. One week later and I get an email saying I won 50 quid. Nice.

Here she is:
