Mr Pauls letter

Here is Mr Pauls letter from Clarence House. This was a thank you note to him for doing the design for the bookmarks for schools tie in for the Prince's Rainforest Project. We did a load of films for the PRP you tube pages, which Paul was heavily involved in. Here is my favourite one which Mr Paul did himself.

Disney Veg

Here are two shots from a short for The Disney Channel. It was a competition for viewers to come up with a short. So the winning idea was made by us using the designs and story from the winner.

Here is another Tweenies still. This was when Milo and Bella were having a race. The tree's used in this in Cg were modeled from the trees we did in stop motion for a short called The Village With the 3 Corners back in 1990. One of the trees has been wondering round the studio in all that time. So Mr Paul decided to use it again. Lucky Tree.

Robbie Prezzy

Here is a lovely thanks picture given to us from the director of Robbie the Reindeer thanking us for our work on the storyboards and the Vikings back story section (which you can see a still of the construction here). All made special by the googly eyes!

A Tweenies board

Hi, late post today as we have had trouble with our server.
Here is a bit of an old Tweenies storyboard. We did the boards before they were green screened so the people filming them would have an idea of how everything would work together. We usually composited the green screen and made the fantasy world in which they were in. It was either 2D traditional or CG.

Walk Cycle

Here is another walk cycle as the previous ones have been popular. This character was from a small ad we did a while ago.

Last Cartoon

Here is the last one of these I have which were saved by Mr Paul. It's funny because you (mostly) always end up missing a project when its all finished. I personally miss working on Albie as it was one of the last completely 2D traditional projects we worked on. I miss my lightbox. Well, a little bit.
These were all drawn by Mr Phil. He doesn't remember doing them btw.

More more

Here is another cartoon.

Stress Relief

This little drawing (that is not tea stained, it got wet when Mr Pauls room flooded) is one of the many tit bits of scribbles that appear when an animator is probably on his (or her) 11th hour straight animating highly detailed drawn animation and just occasionally it's fun to get some frustration out on a little cartoon. This was drawn by Mr Phil, I think this stemmed from having to do some intricate animation whilst a character is wearing an elaborate pirate hat.

Madonna Characters

Here are some rough character animation frames from the Madonna video 'Dear Jessie' we worked on at the end of the 80's for Animation City. This was her last 80's single in fact.
We did the love parade characters above and the charcoal section where we fly through some make believe land. And some of the fairy.

Another T-shirt

Well, going with the T-Shirt theme. Here is Mr Paul's one from when Encounters was Animated Encounters way back in 2001. This was given to Mr Paul as he did the trailer for it.

A Dusty and Musty T-shirt

When I said before we never get anything, that wasn't entirely true. Occasionally we get things. Very occationally. So when we do it's always lovely to get something. Here is my crew t-shirt from our clients when we worked on Dusty and Musty.
