DARE 2010

So I get an msn message from my good friend Kev the other day. He asks me would I like to join a team of 3 programmers and himself and give Dare to be Digital a go. Heck yes why not, day before the presentation. "Hey Kev, could ya do us a logo and caricatures of the crew" No worries like. 2 and bit hours of work, and...
Behold, the 5 sexy rascals behind NeverMind Games!
So added into the presentation, my small bit of effort seemed to make a big difference. Which is fairly sweet but I'm not too happy with the expression on the bloke on the top right. Although the boys themselves seemed delighted with the pictures. 
The presentation itself seemed to go quite well. Although I tell ya, those Dare judges, they have the uncanny ability to ask questions that none of us could have anticipated. Thankfully the chap we got on the marketing side of things was great at coming up with answers for that sort of thing. 
So with any luck now I'll be off to Scotland now in June, I'll know in two weeks, and I'll be listening to this song to celebrate the hypothetical good news.

Yes the logo will have to be improved, it's looking a bit 80's at the moment. Minus the steel gradient. 

Take it easy.

Showreel I

So we were asked to put together a show-reel for one of our classes and, by extension, for ourselves. That up there is how mine turned out. I know I could say I want to finish animations and add to it. But sure you could spend forever tweaking and updating these things. I may as well just chun it up there as is for now.

Aw would ya look at 'im!

DOGS! In the last 24 hours I've enjoyed the company of Sally the small terrior, Austin the fat Lab and my brothers 2 Staff-Pit-Bulls or Pit-Bull-Staffs known as Maddie and Stevie. Alongside this doggy madness I'm working on a film called Two Dogs...and naturally while working on an animation involving a crazy cool robotic-DogBot, some of the frames stand out as being "wallpaper material". So with that in mind, and disregarding the NDA I set upon myself at the start of the year.

I'll be able to zazz this up something fierce once the incredibly talented Claire Meehan sends some awesome textures my way. All I know is it's crunch time now, and we're animating like crazy!

Now to enjoy a meat-free good friday dinner...and a beer.
Happy Easter everybody!

EDIT-Updated the textures on the model, this is how he should look in the final render now. Pimped out with Neon so he is!
