Animated Exeter 2009 - Big Careers Day


Animated Exeter's 2009 edition is just around the corner (13th-21st February) and this year, as part of the Big Careers Day, Susannah Shaw invited me to do a Demo/Lecture on Lip-synching. I will be bringing a puppet from Aardman and demonstrating how we would animate it and mentioning some tricks of the trade. I will concentrate on Stop-Motion (for obvious reasons) but I believe that the Lip-sync rules (or lack of them!) easily translate from technique to technique.

A Matter of Loaf and Death

Last Summer, briefed by the ever so talented and kind Nick Park, I did some sculpting and posing for the marketing stills of the latest Wallace and Gromit half hour BBC Christmas special. Here are some examples of that work which you can download as wall paper from the official website and a couple of making-of pics (don't mind the mess!)

1997: My first animation job :-)

When I had just turned eighteen I did my traineeship at Animanostra - learning 2D Traditional Animation, thanks to Humberto Santana and Rui Cardoso. I was then given my first job as an inbetweener and tracer and had the chance to work with a wonderful team (who are to this day my dear, dear friends): Pedro Brito, Ricardo Blanco and Osvaldo Medina :-)
