Animated Journal

From 2009 to 2010 I kept an animated journal.

I had always liked the picture a day format, video diaries etc, and animation is, traditionally a long drawn out, painful process, so this was me trying to find a way to free it up and make it a bit more ephemeral. I should’ve just waited a few years for the smartphones to do it for me, but there you are.

Stan Brakhage said that he considered what he did to be his home movies and these follow a similar vein.

In a pre-Vine era I was generally capturing what was going on around me and channelling it into 250 frames.

It was made using a variety of software & techniques including Maya, flip book drawings, After Effects, old cameras, roll film, digital photography and so on.

Since making this film I have continued with the Animated Journal project, you can follow it’s progress here.
