Turns out that this evening I just wanted to draw a demon lady power posing in her undies.
That and watch Castle.
This summer I worked with Hannah Robinson of Muckle Hen Productions to produce a short explainer video about medical abortion.
The video shown is in English for the UK, but is also in French, Swedish and Portuguese.
I provided storyboards, character design and animation using Photoshop and After Effects, and edited to the 4 different voiceovers.
You can find the storyboards and character designs in my portfolio.
Playing around learning to make GIFs in Photoshop. First try was quick and messy, but I quite liked the result! Looking forward to doing more.
And of course it would be a shiba inu. I'm mildly obsessed with those dogs XD
I found some of the files from the CelAction training course I was fortunate to take part in! The course was held on Skye at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and taught by the lovely and ever-patient Mat Dame of King Rollo Films.
For one of our last lessons we did lip synch ... and I made things difficult for myself! Choosing a clip that was longer than recommended and wanting to incorporate body language to match the wonderfully over-the-top acting by Eartha Kitt (I admit, manipulating the stock boy puppet we were all given into to those poses was a lot of fun ... weird, weird fun).
As you will see, I did not complete the animation in the end. Perhaps a lesson to stick to the brief and keep time in mind? I wish I could go back and finish it, but unfortunately it was right at the end of the course.
