Went to Dinamo studios this morning to talk to Owen Stickler and Aron Evans. Really really interesting stuff, and they are so nice ^__^
It's my second time visiting the studios after doing work experience for them back in April for a few days and was lovely to see everyone again. They were even working on the designs I did for them, which was really nice, I hope to see the finished result of what they do for them. Such a cool environment down there.

I drew a pug...

Spent the afternoon at Calon, being shown around the studios by Lynn Stockford. The first studio was where they create and shoot Hana's Helpline which was pretty awesome. The sets were far larger than what I'm usually used to seeing from college. A really impressive studio environment which was what I was hoping for and more. Makes me sort of wish I did stop motion animation... but then I would miss drawing far too much.
We then made our way back to the main studio where we witnessed some of the production on Bobinogs. Was more interested in the storybording than any thing else. Was surpised to to recognise so many people there, which is rather reassuring.
I'm more inspired to dabble in a few different styles now. Especially inspired by Andraw Offlers vast collection of curios and animation books. The walls were covered in everything from religeous paintings of the Madonna, Betty Boop figurines, vintage joke packs, a Goofy phone and many many other bits of memorabilia from the industry. Now that was inspiring, I could live comfortably in a room like that, not work though. I'd get far too distracted. I can't imagine how he does it.

Doodled this in my lunch hour while thinking about my short film. Yay!! My first post.


Well, this is my first blog entry from the Cyfle studio down Cardiff Bay. Just setting up this account to show you lot what I get up to at the studios, what inspires me, interests me, all that Jazz. It'll probably be all animation knowing me, but cartoons are great, so it's all good. I'll probably be updating this quite often, keeping an account of what I get up to over the year.

So, yeah, I'll post up some stuff as soon as I get used to this.
I'm quite new at all this blogging ^__^

See ya!
