Good boy film

Hello everyone, it has been a long time in the making but finally the 'Good Boy' film is finished.
I will be adding some making of and behind the scenes photos and videos later on but for now please enjoy the finished product.
It has been a fun and moving project to have worked on and I am really pleased with how it has come out.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way (even just to give me photos of their dogs for the end credits) and to Kelly Angel for giving me the opportunity to bring her original comic to the screen.

Please enjoy.

Good boy film continued

Hello all.
It has been a little while since my last update, but the animation for the good boy film (based on the comic strip by Kelly Angel) is finally finished.

It's been a really fun project to work on, It was such a wonderful story, very funny and quite emotional at times and It was a piece I am glad to have animated.
The work isn't over yet though, I still have editing and sound and other various finishing touches to work on for the next month or so until it is complete.
So check back soon and hopefully the film will be here waiting for you to feast your eyes upon.

Until then, here are some stills from the film and some making of shots.

Good boy film


It has been a little while since my last update so I thought I'd get right to it and let you know what I've been up to.

My latest animated project at the moment is a short film based on the amazing and very moving comic strip 'Good boy' created by Kelly Angel.
If you have not read this then I urge you to do so now by following this link:
Good boy comic

After reading this comic I knew almost at once that this was a film I wanted to make.
With Kelly's approval I began working on the film and have been doing so now for the past couple of months.

Original model prototype 

In summery the film is about the life of a very happy dog.
In the film I am trying to follow the comic as closely as possible, using the frames of the comic as reference for each scene.

The film is now over half way finished and if all goes well will hopefully be complete by mid August.
Keep your eye out for it and I will update again soon.
Until then, here are some making of pictures for you all to feast your eyes on. Enjoy.

Grave advice

Hey everyone, sorry there haven't been any posts in a while, I'm currently working on about five different projects that I will hopefully share soon. But I thought I'd update with stuff I can actually show you for now...
Last month I worked on a short for the 11 second club, I hadn't done one in a while and thought it was time to give it a go. I just wanted a small project that I could animate on right away and the 11 second club was perfect for this. I ranked 101 out of 290 (1 being best rated 290 the lowest)  so nearer the top than the bottom.
There were a lot of great entries last month and the winner was well deserved, I'll just have to work harder to get higher up the scoreboard next time.
I will hopefully have some of my bigger projects to show In the near future but for now you can check out the video for the 11 second club here:
