The new video from my animation company Small Island Studio!
Mixture of 2D and 3D animation, created in Flash, After Effects and Lightwave 3D.
Music & Sound FX by Nick Storr, Narrated by Matt Hunt.
My just turned 5 year old son presented me with this awesome picture the other day.
Being the brilliant father I am I’ve since forgotten what he said it was… ahem.
Of course, all I saw was what I wanted to see, so to me it was the most awesome abstract expressionist drawing of a giant robot in a forest I’d seen.
Being an old hand at ripping off my kids’ ideas I couldn’t resist.
I traced over the lines I liked and embellished a bit, but when Isaac handed me the picture this is pretty much what I saw.
I shocked myself by drawing it in Flash(not my favourite software). Colouring was done in Photoshop. The giant robot in forest theme is pretty reminiscent of the Iron Giant. (if you haven’t watched ‘Iron Giant’ watch it now, it’s bloody brilliant)
I dunno, maybe the death ray should have been shoulder mounted……
