Rotoscope Gorilla

Completed for a class project. I am trying to implement my experience as an actor into my animated characters. I am channeling Laurence Olivier in his performance of Hamlet (1948).  It was an exciting exercise which I will develop upon in further assignments.

Odd Sock Animated Short

This is an animated short I made in my free time at Staffordshire University.

Whilst still only on my first term, I was itching to sink my teeth into an animated short with a three act structure and story.  Although it is a rough piece of animation, I consider it a success as it was a four minute film, scheduled and completed on a tight time frame.  I had a week of pre-production, 3 weeks animation and a month of working in post-production.  The film had over 40 separate shots and 10 setups. Please enjoy!
