Two Sided Week

1. Good Thing.

The Animate Journal was featured on the excellent 4mations website. They said:

"I’m not really sure what to make of Paul’s animated experiments but there is something hypnotic and mesmerizing about these snippets of life. It’s like dipping a toe in somebody else’s sensorial experience, vaguely voyeuristic without the seedy Big Brother connotations. Which is a good thing, because somehow I doubt an animator’s lifestyle could compete with the glossy glamour of watching a Z-list celebrity painting their toenails."

2. Not So Good Thing

The promising 5lights tumblr project ended this week. It was shaping up to be something very special, and I was due to be a Monday person on it for a month around autumn. I've started concocting four "pieces" and may follow through with these anyway.

All the best to Lou Noble and Katie West for their future projects.

Enjoy August.

About Me

My photo

I have been working in the CGI industry for 11 years. Studied Animation at the West Surrey College of Arts and Design (now UCA) and have had work shown at the London Film Festival. I work for Bristol based BDH Design and Direction and have worked on programs such as the BBC’s forthcoming “The Rise of the Continents”,  “British Style Genius” (winner of an RTS), "Wonders of the Universe" and also “The Boy with the Incredible Brain”. 

In my spare time (!), I experiment with animation, and recently kept an Animated Journal.

You can also find me on Tumblr & Twitter.
