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 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.

The Action Pixel et al

The Action Pixel @TheActionPixel #EntertainmentOnTAP
Check out a blog I have been working on over at Articles about everything Animation, Comic and Gaming. Some cool stuff there so be sure to check it out.

I know, I have been on one of my forced hiatuses again, so thought I'd touch base once more to let you see what I am up to.

Also some great news on the festival front for Red Man and Merchants Of Quietus. Click to have a read.

But hey, I'll be more regular with the posty post.

This is only the beginning.

Prepare for war.
A common phrase of the independent creative it seems. Another forced hiatus from posting on here, but I am on the verge of launching a platform that has been a key focus of late. Also doing the odd story art job and animation.... or at least working up to it.

Re: Festival front, got Merchants Of Quietus and Red Man in the Portobello Film Festival 2014, with Red Man being nominated for best animation. More news still on Red Man coming soon too.

So. It has been a relatively busy few weeks.
But will be diligent and start religiously posting stuff on here.

Sum up,

Yakuza Storyboards

Now that's intimidation. Yakuza tattoos. A mural that says "I'm bout this life!" and "Pain is weakness leaving the body". Tattoos that stop by the wrists, so they can be hidden  if needed but to see just a bit of it through an unbuttoned shirt, or a rolled up sleeve... ain't nothing to ***k with.

Did some storyboards for a shot narrative a while back and thought it'd be cool to share some of it. Check it out:

Let me know what you think.

Sum up,
Season of the Storyboard. But working on a few other spacecrafts.

'Bluntspear at the Film Festivals'. Sounds more epic than it is.

Few updates on the Festival front for my films Red Man and Merchants Of Quietus. An all around good look methinks. Both films will be at the Portobello Film Festival and Red Man will also be at Aesthetica Short Film Festival.

Currently been busy with a few stuff, hence the radio silence. But hoping to launch a few new projects come September.

Sum up,
Great and sad times we living in. Just never compromise. Too many people change for the worse just to conform. Bleh.
