Throw Animation

Another piece of animation done from reference footage. I shot this out in the garden, and then put it into a quicktime movie for easy reference.

The actual throw is speeded up from 25 frames per second of action, compressing the same movement down to 15 frames of action. Whereas the follow through and walk back remains 'normal' or 'real' paced. A few of the poses and actions are also a bit more exaggerated than the original footage too, as this is supposed to be aniamtion and not rotoscoping.

Also rejigged my jump down, for aquicker air movement, and re rendered it too:-

New Showreel After Renders

So here's another reel. Been doing more stuff, and tightening up the timing and animation on a few others. Hope it does seem tighter and neater than other reels though.

Okay, I've just decided to render a few odds and ends here for the reel. So here they are with a few tweaks on the animation too:-


Matthew Perry - "Cartoon"

Steve Carrell - "Relationships"

New Showreel

Right, as a result of the last couple of pieces I've done here's the traditional new showreel. Let us know what you think guys and gals, music by Simian Mobile Disco!

Jump Down With Stumble

Back again, so just spent couple of days doing this jump. Shot a piece of reference footage for this of me jumping in the garden from one of the plinths. Will try and load that up as well. In the meantime here's the end result.

Weirdley noticed the character looks like Tal ben Haim or Dan Jackson!
