Zade's Roach

The Phantom Hands recently had an awesome meeting in which we exchanged lots of ideas, including Zade's sad cochroach animation. While there, I started to design the character, then went home added more to it:

Jason Lynch Notes

Some notes from Jason Lynch's talk the other day:

-Plan stop motion in 2d first

-"Guerilla" techniques are always a good way to start up your own studio

-Be proactive and always ASK QUESTIONS... (ie Jason's foot-in-the-door at Aardman got him the opportunity to work on Creature Comforts and Wallace and Gromit).

-Always think of your character's background - how they would react to certain situations they are placed in, past history etc. Character responses need to be well-designed and extensively thought through.

-Keep the story to the point.

-Don't be too precious about murdering your babies

-Think about the micro-story. Jason mentioned The Iron Giant's bolted jaw and the fact that there was a reason for it, which the viewer discovers towards the end.

And that's it... Hope this helps anyone who forgot their notebooks :)

Foetal Jim's Make-over

So yeah, Jim's been getting a bit self-conscious in his old age. He wanted a facelift.

This new and improved version is made out of plasticine and is fully-posable with interchangeable eyes and mouth. Much more effective for animating than the old clay version that looked really immobile when "animated".

After being reincarnated about six times, I think he's going to stay like this.

The Great Yokai War

Here's a trailer for a Japanese movie. It looks a bit like Pan's Labyrinth, but with monsters from Japanese folklore like the Kappa. I'm hoping that the Kappa play a large part in the plotline, as they are a pretty bizarre creature.

Incidentally, if anyone wants to know more about the Kappa, here's a link:

Here are a bunch of pics...

It's still looking a bit messy, but that should improve when I take my airbrush to it (funtimes!).
