John Carter Wrap

All VFX work on John Carter is now complete and the wrap party was held last Saturday in London's prestigious Natural History Museum. Unfortunately I was unable to attend due to being on a different continent, however someone from Double Negative made a movie of the event which has enabled me to get a taste of it, I've borrowed a bit from it below.

It's especially pleasing to to hear the director, Andrew Stanton's appreciation of all the hard work the many visual effects artists put into the film. Congratulations to everyone involved, I can't wait to see the finished film.

Angle and Curve Promo

Here's a little something I worked on before leaving the UK. It's a promotional video Craig Bardsley, Julia Goehle and myself were commissioned to make for Angle & Curve - the company that I've been told by the unbiased owner, makes the best headphones on the globe.

From start to finish it took just 10 days. We were only able to work on it for a few hours each evening so unsurprisingly it is a little rough around the edges. Craig and myself devised the story and did the animation. Julia came up with the character design as well as some key-drawing clean-up.

Due to the tight deadline it was created as simply as possible, without using colour and drawing straight into the computer using the excellent free program Plastic Animation Paper.

As my day job usually has a focus on realism and detail it was refreshing to try and tell a whole story as simply yet clearly as possible. It was also a chance to try and rejuvenate my rusty drawing skills. Hope you like it.

New John Carter Trailer

The latest trailer for John Carter, the film I worked on for most of the last year has been released and I think this gives a much better sense of the scale of it. Hope you like it.

I'm also fortunate enough to have one of the shots I worked on feature, albeit very briefly. It's around the first ten second mark where two characters are forced into an areana at gun point.

The theatre release is scheduled 100 days away on the 9th March 2012.
