#25 mundane/magnificent

I went and made another film, didn't I?! Filmmaking is probably my favourite thing I've done at university so far. 

So here it is...

This film is based on Patternity's concept of looking at the world around us in a different way. I wanted to show that nature creates patterns without being manipulated, but also what could be achieved with the use of digital effects. I was looking at the mundane and the magnificent; how something mundane could look magnificent and vice versa.

#24, 6, 8, i love to animate

So here is my first project for my second year which is a cut out stop motion animation. It was so much fun to create and edit and I'm probably a bit biased, but I really like the end result.

#23 chanel dancing

I absolutely love this video; Quentin Jones collaborated with ballet dancer Emma Chadwick to create this quirky yet beautiful, part animated film for Chanel's SS11 collection. Isn't it lovely?!

So as I was doing a bit of research into some animation work, I came across the most amazing animator / illustrator and I just wanted to share the work so you can all see how amazing it is too. 

Here is my favourite sequence but you can find more work here

Alicia Keys has a new song out, produced by her hubby Swizz Beatz called 'New Day'. Go have a listen because it's bloody brilliant and extremely catchy.

#20 papillon

It has almost been two months since my last post as I have been in a blogging rut but I have decided that I had to post something and it just so happens that I have something pretty cool to blog about.

After submitting a second film for my final project of my first year (based on David Lynch's work), my tutor Ivana Bobic, who has directed some amazing films asked if I wanted to edit a film for her friends who are DJ Duo, Papillon (French for butterfly if you didn't know). Feeling extremely excited, I immediately said yes and thought it would be such an amazing thing to do. After sending the email, panic set in; but I have only ever made one and a half films before and this has got to be good and what if it's not?!

So anyway, I was given the brief, the footage and music and got straight to work. A few days later and this is the final result - what do you think?!

You should definitely check Papillon out, they're incredible and also, get down to The Moustache Bar on 16th June from 8pm to see them and a few others play.
