Encounters 2009 still

Morning. Here is another still from the 2009 Encounters Trailer. Mr Paul is soon to start the 2010 trailer. Have a look at the Encounters website where you can see previous trailers and how they are using Mr Paul's character as the new brand. Are you going to enter something? Go on.

Absolute Balderdash

Here are some stills from an advert we did many many years ago (about 13) for the board game. It was all traditionally animated. Mr Nigel did most of this, I did some assisting but my main contribution was drawing the pack shot which you can see in the top panel. This was before computers so it had to be drawn by hand. The picture is low rez so I can't see but I remember one of the letters being a bit dodgy and I cringed every time I watched it on TV when it was broadcast.

Teddy's Trains

Here are some images from I pilot we did quite some years ago based on the Teddy's Trains children's books. Funny thing is, we did all this traditionally as it was before we started to use Flash. It would have been so easy to do in Flash and not have to thicken all the lines individually in Animo. Mr Tim did say at the time Flash would be easier but none of us knew how to use it. Plus there were no computers in the building apart from the Animo system. Now all we have is computers in the building and a render farm that is heating the street!

Morning, here is an areal shot of a CG city that was built (by Miss Monica) for a pilot for Scratch and Sniff. This is quite a bit old now though so if your seeing a similarity with Handy Manny then it isn't as this pre dates it.

What a lovely morning it is here in Bristol. Here are some images from a trailer we did for the Disney Channel back in 2002. It was stop motion with a CG BG. They were basically on a roller coaster ride. The models are still in the studio but they are looking a little worse for wear now.

Morning! Here are some stills from a pilot we did for Tell-Tale a few years ago. It was about 2003 I think. It was both traditional and CG. We did the traditional bits. I haven't shown you any of the CG bits. Because we didn't do it. Funnily enough.

Billy Stills

Here are some stills from the Billy Goats Gruff short we did for OUP. I posted some animation drawings for the baby goat recently. I have a few more of the same to put up soon. Now you can see how they were finished. This was all traditional. Drawn characters and drawn BG's.

Here are some poses for the character designed by Mr Paul for the 08 Encounters Trailer (which he also Directed). They liked it so much they asked us to use the same concept for last years trailer and now they are using him as a brand for the Encounters Short Film Festival.....the Character I mean not Mr Paul. That would be silly.

A Tweenie shot

Hi, I'm back so I may leave a few posts today to make up for none last week.
Here is a still from The Tweenies. We did all the animation in it and compositing them into new environments or creating fantasy characters that Milo, Bella, Fizz and Jake interacted with over the years.

A Run Cycle

Here is a run cycle of a baby goat from a OUP short we did of Billy Goats Gruff. This was from Mr Phil. He is having a tidy up around his desk and found these. Look at the construction and clean up and the over lapping action of the ears. Nice.

Old Card

As it's now May, here is an old Christmas card design using our old logo design. If you click on the logo tab you can see it. Old post.
Mr Paul dug some old things out of his draw for the blog as I still haven't had time to dig around the attic for new 'old' things to show.
