Dead Cool Storyboards

I was live and direct on a short film set directed by Simon Ross; recently worked on a few projects for him. And though I was 'Black guy in the crowd' type of extra, I also managed to do the storyboards for the short, entitled "Dead Cool". More like dead cold... hella freezing. And Britain got it's first-named storm. Congrats. We in the Caribbean name our storms all the time. Theirs started with an A. Something weak like Andrea, Ashley or something.

Check out a few of the frames I did:

Scrulove's "Home" Music Video

It's "slice and dice 'em" season it seems with me on the digital killing floor. Currently editing 'the short', but what launched yesterday was a music video I directed for artiste Scru Love entitled Home. Also ended up doing the frame by frame GFX and edit.

The idea was simple one location deal, DOP shot it on a Black Magic:

So punched the footage up with some simple GFX and painstaking frame by frame animation. Whoa is me.

Check out the video in the player below:


Now check out some of the stills from the music video:

Sum up,
Too much to do with little support. Now I know how Huey felt.  Not really, but you get the idea

The Disappeared storyboards

Did some quick boards a while back for a short film  for Guy Logan about a story surrounding 'The Troubles' back when Ireland was 'bout it bout it' aka 'bout that life'. Hence the title The Disappeared

Sum up,
I am sad to say I actually just caught on to how awesome CW's Arrow is. Lots of lost time to make up for.

Reunion Flyer design

Hey gang,
Swarmed with work this and next week. Most of it has been spent working on storyboars for Breville ads and drawing a humanoid chicken. As you do. Feels like I could use an extended holiday. Most recently, I did some quick flyers for a high school reunion. Alpha Girls chapter in MIA. Also one for Tarrant High School.

Which made me think how much would a reunion at my high school suck. Mainly because I'm still that awkward guy who'd rather draw than gossip about inconsequential bull.

Pre-Viz Storyboards: Missing Planes, Scientists and Kidnappings

Hey peoples! How goes you. Thought I would quickly share some boards I did for a friend Stil Williams who's currently over at MPC. He needed them for a more pre-viz exercise and thought I'd lend a hand. So if you like clandestine lairs, shady organised crime and conspiracies and high profiled kidnappings then this definitely for you:

All in a days work. Can't wait to see what he comes up with.

Sum up,
So... much work. Doing some boards for blueprint.tv plus a series to launch on the BBC. And my sisters site... it's like being in the trenches with half a banana clip and no air support in the foreseeable future

Yakuza goes animatic + Topscreen Logo design

Remember that Yakuza boards I did, well the director came back to me and wanted me to convert the boards into a working animatic. Just to remind ya:
Finished that a couple weeks ago, and will show it in a few when I can. Also recently did some design work for Topscreen and their rebranding. Logo was simple, check it out:
I also did a version for dark backgrounds so it can exist on all surfaces. I thoroughly hate logos that can only exist on one type of background, or white type on yellow surfaces. It just does not work. Anywho, I'm just going to totally ignore the fact that this post is being made after quite the hiatus on my part, and just say see ya next time.

Sum Up,
Accreditation. Always praise the soldier who stood in the trenches with you when you did not have the support you have now.

TAP, S & B and why I've been MIA

Boy, did that last post turn out to be a big lie. It's just that TAP takes up so much time, I hardly have enough wind in me by the end of each day. But hey, few things other than the blog I am working on. Looking to do a short which is annoying to say the least. It is usually the process I go through when working on a low budget film. It starts out all optimistic, then select individuals throwing monkey wrenches into the machine, disheartening period and then the soldiering on with a 'do-it-yourself' mentality. I am currently between 3 and 4. Suit & Bone is the name of my film, so look out for more information on that. Also will be vamping the TAP site and S & J Foods site in the coming weeks so more of that too soon In the meantime check out TAP or add me on FB. Or not. Sum up, Blaahhhg.
