December got silly busy very quickly, so we didn’t have a chance to make you a jolly Christmas greeting. Instead, here’s a new Christmas card I designed and animated for Danish company, Go’Proces. They provided the script, which I’m not sure even makes sense in Danish.
Here’s the long awaited trailer for Man In A Cat! Watch, like, share, leave comments… go nuts.
I’ve neglected a lot of the Man In A Cat‘s behind the scenes, but enough time’s past now for me to be able to deal with the post-traumatic flashbacks. So more behind the scenes to come.
An animation we produced for Take a Pitstop has made its way online.
The idea was to raise awareness of Lymphoma in the under-30s so we tried to make something funny but got across a very serious message that could affect people’s health.
Last week BBC Comedy asked me to animate to a rap by the very clever Dan Bull to commemorate John Lennon’s 70th Birthday and a blue plaque unveiling. After working out how to avoid some massive copyright litigation parties, I smashed it out in about 3 days. All animated and prettified in Flash.
There’s always something you could alter, but we’re pretty chuffed with how it turned out with the small amount of time we had. Here’s the original BBC website link.
*Update* Ooh, and apparently we were featured on the BBC homepage too. Zing!
Unwanted husband and father, Paul Slater is a check out assistant in Tesco. But Paul leads a secret double life… He is… Santa Claus!… in the Tesco Christmas Grotto Mega Value Clearance section.
Danish company Go’Proces: came to me with a script for an animated Christmas card. So I made one. It’s only occurred to me recently that Scandinavians have a particular sense of humour. Like the sort of joke that doesn’t have a punchline… or a joke. Just a big vast dark cold landscape of subtlety. I like!
Here’s a Halloween short Louis did the animation for quite a while back for Will Rot. Probably best not show your kids this one – not the last
20 seconds in any case. Make that 30 seconds, sorry eyes.
Seeing as statistically 67% of all males between 16 and 45 will be dressing up as Michael Jackson this Halloween (science doesn’t lie people) here’s a audio-visual forewarning entitled ‘How Not To Be Halloween Fabulous, or How I Learnt to Stop Caring and Started Dressing as Michael Jackson‘
May we introduce our sticky new born, ‘Bored Stiff’. Here’s what it has to say for itself:
Dr. Nick Deadly gets bored and takes time out to work on an extra-curricula project. Plus, there was queue for the toilet.
They said, ‘It couldn’t be done!’… well more, ‘I don’t want to do it!’. But one digital pen, 3 dogs lives and lawsuit later I had proved them wrong. If you’re interested… Excuse me. Yep. Hi… here’s the original scribbles I did on a tiny scrap of paper a few years ago. The words are me trying to give it a title.
At the end of Friday the votes were counted and we won, meaning we now earn revenue when you watch ‘It Came In Peace’.
What the hell, watch it a few times.
