A+C Studios Paper-Craft Work

I recently completed work on this Paper-Craft project for British Airways with the creative team at A+C Studios based in Margate. I worked mostly in Adobe Illustrator, adapting, designing and modelling various characters and elements. If your passing though Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal over Christmas, give it a watch on the big screen!

Chuck Steel Premiere

I have returned from the week long Annecy Animation Festival in France.  Here I attended the world premiere of Chuck Steel - Night of the Trampires and finally saw the film I worked on last year.  Fantastic to see how it all came together!!  (I am lurking in the back, fourth from the right.)

Stuttgart Animation Festival - 48 Hour Challenge

Here is an animation completed by Giulia Marcolini and myself for the 48 hour "Crazy Horse" competition at the Stuttgart Animation Festival in Germany.  We arrived with two suitcases of equipment, puppets and sets and after two days of work and 3 hours of sleep, we submitted this film.  I produced the puppets, set and animation for the "horse with newspaper" segment of the film.
