Toonboom training

So I recently got back from a 2 week stay in Dublin learning Toonboom Harmony. The first week was with a guy from toonboom teaching us the technical stuff, and the second week was with 2 guys from Mercury Filmworks (Jeff and Phil) teaching us how to actually animate.

It was an awesome experience and only wish it was longer! If it wasn’t for the Mickey mouse shorts and Wander over Yonder I would have never known about Mercury Filmworks or the course. So it only seemed fitting that I do a little thank you sketch with both characters.

Cheers guys!!!

Animation Course Selifie

A brief interview sort of thing for my university. They supplied the questions, I supplied the answers and terrible video.

Apologies about the video though, unemployment means I have to rely on phone cameras that cant decide whether to focus on myself or my cintiq so it jumps back and forth constantly. The Lighting is terrible as well so you cant really see whats on the Cintiq, so if you do fancy checking out my work, please stop by:

Hope it helps people out. Enjoy!

CalArts advice

Someone asked me a question about how I prepared for my CalArts application so I thought I'd share it here as well, hope its helpful to someone :)

Hi Reg, I'm a student from the UK who really wants to study at CalArts for charanimation. I understand that you're from here too and i would looooove to know what steps you took to prepare yourself for application (eg classes etc) and how you'd recommend anyone go about it. I'm sorry if this bothers you so don't feel like you have to answer but I would really love some sort of guide as this so daunting! Love your work too! x

Final Film Trailer

Hey guys, my final film trailer is now online!!! I wanted to have this film finished by now but various opportunities have got in the way, which is a good thing :)  I'm still working on the film in my own time and will hopefully have it finished within the next couple of months.
Hope you enjoy it and keep an eye out for the complete film :D
