Kinopolis + Update

It's been quiet around here as I was working away for a while with a company. With any luck I'll be able to put some of the stuff I was doing for them on the blog sooner rather then later.

In the meantime I was asked to create a Trailer for the 6th Annual Kinopolis Polish Film Festival but I went one further and decided to make a track for it as well. I'm quite happy with how it turned out and apparently they organisers liked it too. It's a very cool festival and I'll definitly be checking it out again next year.

Yeah, all those heaps of posts about and references to this film I had been working on? Well here's the film. Enjoy :)

Take it easy

In this post you'll find images of all the props and gadgets used in Peripheral along with the textures used for their materials. I really did have to make a lot of stuff for this darn film.

Right so, that's everything uploaded for the time being. There is more I could upload but for the time being this'll do.

Next I have two more tall images, the first detailing the progression and changes to the main character of my film, Max, as he adds more and more electronic gadgets to himself, before transferring his mind to a completely new robot body.

The progression of the main character Max throughout the film

And now for the many MANY textures I used to make Max, the pieces he attaches to himself and his robotic form.

More to come

So as of today I'm officially finished college and have recently finished my film for the end of year. With any luck now it'll be screened at the end of year show on Wednesday the 25th. To sum up ADA was a fantastic course filled with very talented, very nice and very funny people who I'm happy to have had in my life for the last two years. I wish them all the best of luck and hope that we do stay in touch.

Nevertheless, this is the first in a few posts detailing the work that went into my short film, Peripheral. I'm really proud with the final film despite having to trim some of the ending off it. It's the third short film I've worked on I learned a heap of stuff making it. I can't post it online for a while but I can post the making of without incident.

So first of all I have two very tall images that show a comparison between the storyboards or slides for my film's animatic and the corresponding final shots.

Plenty of things were worked out quite early and remained in the final product

In hindsight I probably spent too long on these storyboards but I feel they turned out well and definitly gave people an impression of how I wanted the film to turn out.
Although I feel they were much better then and clearer then the original thumbnail sketches. Which you can see below. These were scanned back before the updated boards as you can see from the note om the final page.
Before these boards were realised I had made a very simple trimmed down version of my film which was presented for the original film pitch. Before the idea was fleshed out and fully realised. Have a look below.

More to follow.

Safer Silliness

So during the summer I was over in Dundee taking part in Dare to be Digital. In their "white space" computer area in the Abertay Dundee University, they have this really nice graph on the wall depicting a timeline of the video game industry. Some artistic clever folk, using posted notes, stuck an entire Mario level on the wall under this time line which gave me the idea to add something of my own. So I drew an A3 picture of Safer Sephiroth, the last boss from Final Fantasy VII and stuck it up a few days before I left.
Cut to January, over 5 months later. One of the guys from Dare who is still in the college tags me in 2 photos on Facebook that he took with his mobile showing that the picture has yet to be taken down. Needless to say, it made my day seeing these two pictures so here they are.

Click for un-cropped and slightly larger

Now, back to the film. I reckon I could get a few posts out of the amount of props I've modeled for this thing.

Ah, it is finally the new year. I've given up making very definitive clear resolutions as it's my belief that good things tend to happen when you're working away. So with that in mind, going to simply wish that I get more done this year as 21 posts meant for a fairly successful 2010. Also, another wish would be to Stumble Upon some of my own work, although that would mean using that toolbar again. Which wouldn't be the best of ideas in my final year of college.

Either way, 2 quick drawings to put up. Just some practice caricatures

Dara O'Briain - Hugh Dennis & Frankie Boyle

UPDATE: 9th January Didn't feel a need to make another blog post for this but I've drawn 3 more caricatures.

More comedians in the form of Andy Parsons, Russell Howard and Ross Noble.

Cheers and Happy New Year.
