Trailer and update

Well that took me long enough to get round to doing! So it's not really much of a trailer but more of a few of my favourite scenes. I found it quite hard to make a trailer for something that is so short.

Also I've been trying to get some inspiration for a new puppet but I am really drained for ideas at the moment so I am going to make some thing I have wanted to try out for a while now and was reminded when I did this illustration the other, It not the most exciting drawing but I'm getting closer to the look I want to achieve.

I have to decide whether I am going to try and make the wings on it fold down or if its is going to be a flying only puppet. I would prefer to be able to fold them in, maybe have interchangeable wings. I am thinking it's going to be a stylized design rather than realistic so I can have fun with materials, also I wont need molds and what not.

A super quick concept and armature sketch

Oh and this is Pip, another practice sketch working on texture with brushes.

Hopefully I will have more to report on soon. Hope everyone is doing well.
P.s I finished and passed animation degree with flying colours. First class honours!!!

Oh and it's my birthday, I don't want to be 27 I want to be peterpan!!!!!


  1. Happy Birthday! Congratulations on your degree. This trailer is seriously beautiful, man. Entering any film festivals?

  2. Many thanks matey!

    I have to go back into uni in a couple of weeks to finish shooting a couple of scenes and hopefully if there is time do a re-shoot on one.
    I am going to enter it into a local animation festival next week, so fingers crossed they take accept it in it's unfinished state.

    Hope everythin is good with you dude

  3. Happy (belated) Birthday! Hope you had a good one!

    Wow, the trailer's looking incredible- very slick.
    I'm amazed at the detail in your sets aswell! Those little bottles are beautiful and the music really works well to the shots.

    Can't wait for this!

    Keep up the good work!
