I was very fortunate to be invited to Animpact animation festival in Seoul last year. Guests were asked to make a greeting video.
From a pitch for an airline safety video. They weren’t really into it.
Character design by Tim Lahan.
Animation of a dog’s fantasy. It was meant to be part of a live action TVC. In the final ad it got cut and replaced with a stock photography montage (?!) but I like the song.
Audio by Beacon Street Studios.
A short cartoon featuring Tuzki as a bumbling assassin with a vendetta against ducks. (Tuzki is a rabbit character who first found fame in a series of emoticons in China.)
The short was produced by CN Asia Pacific, animated by the legendary Studio 4C (the people who made the film Mind Game which I love a lot), and written and boarded by me. I wasn’t too thrilled with it when it first came out, partly because it’s has the cute death theme and I don’t want to be The Guy That Does That. But with a bit of distance I don’t mind it so much and 4C did some nice work so here you go.
Jacky Winter Group put out an Australiana-themed childrens’ activity book called Around Australia a while ago. This is the picture I contributed.
A series of illustrations for Jacky Winter Group’s Flutter service to show the process of commissioning a illustrator for a animation.
Step 1 pick a illustrator, Step 2 make them draw something, Step 3 make them colour it in, Step 4 someone will animate it nice.
P.S. I don’t follow this process myself since motion and timing is more important than art style in comedy. So I like to do rough animation early on.
