gencat ad

Here's an ad i've recently been working on at Aardman. There's 5 of them altogether and they've been turning up on the blogs of Felix, Robin and Spencer so i thought i'd put my favourite up too.

This ones about recycling if you don't understand Spanish.

I did storyboard and block through, Tom Evans animated, Spencer Cross After Effectsed and Tim Ruffle directed.

Here's another one - same bunch of people, animated by me and Tom - use public transport!

recently been working as animation goblin on Ringbinders for Aardman and Comedy Demon. Directed by Tom Parkinson who made the Adventures of Jeffrey!

Comedy Demon's embedding thing doesn't work for me properly and there's also an Alfa Romeo advert attached which i'm not a massive fan of. so here's the trailer instead, which i had almost nothing to do with. You can watch the film here though if you like - http://www.comedydemon.com/video/?vid=11491

by the way, notice the lovely title music done by Rumpus' very own Alex Lupo!

more board pics

not put anything up for ages so here's some board pics from my original pitch, they don't make an awful lot of sense. i've got rid of those several hundred butterflies now, there's only one left.
