So, you saw the dinosaur joke and thought, hmmm... I wonder how he did that. Probably not, well, I will tell you anyway. My father-in-law John did the joke to camera. I then used clever animation software to study 1 frame of the subject at a time and model the character. It is called rotoscope lip syncing and it gives some truly impressive results.Here is a side by side shot which shows how

Dinosaur related humour. I did this animation for my son who like Dinosaurs. The joke was told by my father in law.

I did this animation for BBC3. It is an introduction for the cartoon Family Guy. It is currently on the BBC website and I hope it will get aired.

This is another slightly longer test animation I did very quickly using a webcam and some basic software. It took me about 30 minutes.

I was testing some new "clay" material + showing my son how to animate. The end result was this animation which took me about 20 minutes.

A short animation by me, but one of my favourites. This story shows that you should NEVER underestimate your enemy. A quite well animated tale (if I say so myself) which is fun to watch.

After having a very complimentary e-mail from a class of animation students in the USA - I decided to write an epic - it is currently under production, but in the mean time, here is a sample of a rotoscoping / lip syncing test I did. I needed to prove that I could do lip syncing and it would look good. It is my very first attempt, other than that it is utterly and totally pointless - still

I love this movie - it took me ages and is quite long. It is a clay / computer 2d animation about annoying space chavs. If I can rant for a minute - I work hard for a living, pay my taxes, have a HUGE mortgage and generally get by OK. What I cannot stand are Chavs. People who take pride in being an underclass. Getting pissed, fighting in town centres, vandalising property, wearing thick gold
