Had a blast at Cardiff Mini Film Festival. Highly recommend it. Meanwhile been working on an animation called “
”. Original story made specifically for Reallusion’s Animation@Work 2018 Contest. Had intended to complete the whole thing but only act one is ready for the contest deadline.
Good luck to all contest contenders! Especially me! In any event it forced me to learn "Crazytalk Animator 3 - Pipeline" app. I've had it for ages but only scratched the surface. It's kinda quirky but finally got my head round it (a bit). Want to get the rest finished (soundtrack and puppets are complete) - but several other PAID films need attention.
RIP Peter Firmin 11/12/1928 - 1/7/2018
The “feel” of The Curious Child is influenced by classic BBC Children’s TV animation, of which Mr. Firmin was chief creator - Bagpus, The Clangers, Ivor the Engine, Noggin the Nog, Pogle’s Wood... Although "Curious Child" is intended for adults - and get pretty dark and weird - have attempted to give it the reassuring warmth of Peter's work on those films which so inspired my early childhood.
