A film inspired by a security mirror in a subway underneath the A1 by Apex Corner, London. The circular mask shape and the concave effect was used to show what the mirror sees from it’s point of view. As a result of this the film became more abstract.
The film was projected over a remake of the security mirror as part of the WSA Insitu Exhibition in March 2013
Following on from workshop week, we were encouraged to use our characters in a looping animation.
"Mansion" by Calvin Harris was used due to it’s repetitive and rigid nature. The song reminded me of factories, which ended up in the decision of placing the bear in a factory plant.
The small Olympian bear
Part of a character and Cinema 4D week workshop. Initially inspired by a line in Edward Lear’s poem, “The Quangle Wangle’s Hat”,
I associated, “Olympian” with the word “Great”, which led me to look at different military leaders. The end resulted with a flying bear that can shoot lasers and destroy things.
The aim of the film was to make the audience feel like they were a moth invading the actress’ walk through Winchester, like how a moth would disturb you if you were in a room with one. This film also includes imagery of fire, which reflects the insect’s attraction to light sources.
A short sting I made for the SUSUtv 2013 Advent Calendar
The outcome to a documentary brief set by my university. I decided to focus on the Kakapo, a rare parrot from New Zealand. After doing more research on this creature, I slowly began to find it a strange, yet endearing animal. Eventually the quirky features of the Kakapo made way for a character, hence why I decided to go for an illustrative style inspired by children’s storybooks.
This animation was made using hand-painted textures, digital collage and After Effects
Some stills from my Self-Initiated project… It’s still a work in progress!

My attempt at Space on Cinema 4D. I’ve got to admit, this is pretty damn cool!

This week was workshop week at WSA and my brief was to produce a character and animate it using Cinema 4D. The main aim was to get me thinking about character development and further my understanding of the programme.
