2016: Here’s my latest animation project, an idea I’be had for a while now, but finally had the time to work on it.
I got the idea from experimenting with animation techniques during my foundation last year.
As for the animation itself, it was originally meant to be a very small doodle-animation idea I had, thinking it would take maybe a couple of days or something.
However I kept going back to it and refining it, something I don’t generally do with small project ideas.
After I finished animating, I made a little soundtrack, something very simple in logic, musical loops to fit the motion, so the visuals and audio match.
Later I was lucky enough to get a professional sound person on-board to create a uniquely fitting soundtrack. I was really happy with what Steff Willow did with it, she followed my guidelines really well and gave it style.
While I was in the in the process of printing, cutting, numbering, sticking and photographing the stickers, I had the opportunity to be featured on the Welsh TV channel, S4C. They were looking for welsh artists to talk about their current/recent projects.
This was perfect for me as I wanted to make a behind the scenes video for this project anyway. So it was, again, great to have a professional covering this area of the project, and for it to then be featured on TV was a bonus.
