rave live stand

the day has come and gone the stand looked great and i was very proud of my team that help on the day we produced a database of showreels and i produced the year 2 showreel for the stand itself.

bars and tone and clock

one of the main points of this brief was to get are work broadcast safe the correct way to showcase are work for tv. lucky for me i have friend in broadcasting so was easy for me to get this done but was very surprised on the amount of animators that didn't know the correct way and because it was getting close to dead line i thought i would give a helping hand by giving jared a final cut pro file aswell as a movie file to put on the forum for any animation students to use.

jeffs geting there

the animation is taking it time, time i don't have seeing deadline is soon but at the moment the main problem is the timing of the animation its self this is a area i need to work on more over the summer after working on this project i feel there is so much i need to learn to get up to scratch, but i will have a finished produce for hand in.


for this years Rave Live i toke it apone myself to be the head of animaiton for the event and part of my job was to provide the content 8min waith of animaiton to use in the brake of the show on the event its self this was a short list i produced. in the end i used my team last years eviroment project cut down to 2 mins last years work of bare bear aswell as the theired year film el bandito. aswell as this the current years group wack'd provided me with a 30 second teaser trailer for their film aswell as another group aqua fist with there enivorment project the only downside was there was no sound.

showreel update

i started to edit my showreel working on scene that would show off my models and i wanted to show all the areas im gd at in animaiton not just animating but aswell producing and directing. i used a track of mobys for my showreel on his website there a link to a site called mobygratis which is tracks moby has made just for free copyed writed track to use all you need to do his email and request for one of the track and if they approve they send you a link to download the track to use.

no more Musion

today i found out that musion have pulled out of Rave Live which was very disapionting becuase i was hopeing for my work to been show on the main stage. the reason for this was Musion said from the start they would do it for free then desided to ask for £2000 which i think is a bit unfair to ask after all this time saying would do it for free.

mistake with the animaiton

watching over a rendered scene of my aniamiton i so mistake that i need to correct for the animaiton to get better the best way to do this was write down the problems with the times so i could resolve the problems quicky.

Head of animaiton for rave live

my friend is the Assistant Managing Director for rave live and he asked if could head animaiton for him, the role would inclused perfering 8 min of Animaiton to be shown at Rave live between the show, the organise the animaiton stall for the day of the event. collect cotent for the year 2 showreel aswell as the student database we will have for the students showreels.


i started to this think of ideas after are dvd studio pro oh the layout of my own dvd which clips i would show and not how i would lay out the dvd with logo links would i add my lifedrawing i did deside some of my work wouldnt be gd enuff to put onto the dvd because the whole piont of a showreel is to show off your best work .

ruff edit

i want to show how the work is going on so far im just working to the deadline of April 19th which is coming up close.

the screen shot i chosen show how much i used the footage i filmed, to help my animaiton work.

Saturday, 10 April 2010


this is a test shoot to be emailed to musion to test the size is right and the camera angle is right.

raw footage

time is very inportent this term because if your doing work for rave live we need to hand in to content on the 22 of april so i fort of the idea to film the footage we need for are animaiton and use as refernce when we are working but also if im streched for time i can rotoscope the footage in maya and that would save a lot of time in the animating stage because need basic a week for rendering becuase for musion we need to render in HD.

ruff block out

using the footage we recorded to roloscope the animaiton to give me a helping hand because of the short time frame we have to product the work. atm the moment i have begain to ruff block out the animaiton. the footage is a big help becuase i have all the basic information there. i just need to add exageration to the character.


ruff storyboards

this is the step by step of the modal editing there was a few problems with the uv mapping but in the end all worked out fine. aswell added a ravelive crew t-shirt on him to add to the whole thing because with my animation for this project he is a member of the rave live crew getting told off for slacking.

this is the rig we will be using because it can be customised so can use it for are animation

musion meeting

today went to the head office of musion and was show how the hologram works aswell the guildline we have to use to produce a decsent animation. guildline just as dont use black textuals keep the animaiton moving so dont give a flat effect keep in frame. put more but it really give me a good understanding on the element we need to use to produce a really strong animaiton.

musions work

the work musion dose could be for promoting a phone to productiong the gorillaz live proformens. there work is so broad they can help company showcase there work at events or a privite showings
