The Crashing of Tides.

Copying the final few CGI render frames of a prehistorically massive project which has been keeping us extremely occupied for the last few months. I'm very tired and may spend some time sleeping very soon. https://instagram.com/p/2jOzTMHy-1/

There is a interesting confluence that occurs in the brain when it’s been focused on a project so singularly and for such a long period of time, and then that project ends. After a space of quiet all the thoughts you didn’t have for the intervening months suddenly crash in from all angles. It’s a very fruitful and provides great perspective, but can be over very quickly.

I’ll will post something about the job in question when it gets released, but for now I would just say We had the good fortune to work with animator Rosie Ashforth who turned around several of the miracles we performed to get the job done on time.

So I’ve had a couple of days off to recover, and to remember what the outside looks like.

There’s a lot of catching up to do here as I missed out so much time but that will come. As the country recovers from a pretty dark election result and a new compassion less Britain, and summer struggles to get itself into gear. But there’s no need to mourn.

Currently reading this book:

I’ll feedback on that in due course.

Some of the thought tsunami concerned comics, which is always troubling. I’m re-reading Ivan Brunetti’s Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice:

Useful tools:
Paper
Pen
Life
…all else is vanity.

So we’ll see how that plays out.

The animation world lost the marvellous David Anderson, his film Deadsy was very intrinsic to the way I think about animation in general.
