Cut Paper Animation

... also a couple of animations I found using cut paper techniques that I particularly liked, I really like the use of patterns in the Thomas Beale Cipher, that's something I'd like to incorporate in the Owl and the Pussycat project...


I like looking on the chocolate skateboards website at their designs, they have quite a wide range of styles, I particularly like the work of Evan Hecox, who designs some of their stuff.
I've been looking at the typography, thinking of how I'm going to write the title on my one sheet, they seem to like taking their brand name Chocolate and putting different styles on it, these are some of my favourite ones;

Alternative Background Design

After my tutorial yesterday I decided to try out some different backgrounds incorporating flags from other countries I have been trying out on photoshop repeating flags in a sort of kaleidoscope way and putting these together it looks a bit like a patchwork blanket...

Rotoscoping Animation Tests

Over easter I filmed my dad and sister trying to play badminton to do some rotoscoping with, I put this together with the background and also showed how the union jack would fade through to the foreground.

First Animatic

This was my first attempt of the animatic, I will make some changes for Monday after my tutorial yesterday, I think I need to speed up the pace, maybe add a different camera angle shot and change the music. I am also going to look into alternative backgrounds.

Olympics Ident Sketchbook Work


After researching into the olympics I started looking at pictograms and decide to use this as the style for the characters in my olympics ident for badminton. Below are some pages from my sketchbook looking at concept design and colour variations...

my idea was to have the union jack as a background layers with the characters cut out of a foreground layer so the flag pattern appears behind.

storyboard development...

Olympics 2012

The brief I've been working on for the past month or so is for a 20 second olympics ident for a sport, mine was badminton.
