Dover Arts Development and Watermark

January 28, 2011

I never got around to making a proper post about this so here it is, a few of the still images and extras from my film ‘mill’ and from my time at the Watermark Story shop.

Working hard. Dover arts development, watermark story shop.

Hello Marley!

First we have a blurry snap of Marley I took during a quiet moment inside the story shop, when full of members of the public the room seemed a lot smaller.

In the mornings (and sometimes in the evenings) before the story shop opened I would walk up the million bajillion steps to the Western Heights nature reserve, I didn’t have a lot of time to explore unfortunately.

Shots taken from ‘mill’, here are two different versions of the drill.

A lot of the stuff I shot never made it into the finished piece, here is a still from one such sequence.

Short animation I made for Dover Arts Development‘s Watermark Teasers.
This project was clearly cursed, and it’s all pretty terrible but at least it is finished.

Very basic test for my current project based on the Dover Arts Development Story shop, I will do a proper post on that later.

I won’t go into all the conspiracy theory talk in the comments for this video. It has some nice looping animation and that is good enough for me.

Edit: After some hunting on Google, it was made by Lee and Wayne Lennox.

Poster image from a recent project based on the revolting habits of my cat Biscuit. Although the project is officially over I am still working to improve it before I put it up online.

Life drawing with Roy Eastland (not, I should point out, life drawing OF Roy Eastland). Photos not scans because I am lazy, also I still hate charcoal.

Snail Mail

April 21, 2010

SnailmailA while ago I came across the site RealSnailMail.net from the people at Boredom Research.

You can read all about how it works on the website but in short you send a message the same way you would send an email. Instead of being delivered straight to the recipient, it sits in the system until a snail decides to pop by pick it up and deliver it for you. This is clearly amazing, I sent one.

TWO YEARS LATER ‘Gari’ has picked up the message I sent. I don’t even remember what it was I wrote, I only remember who I sent it to because they sent me an email reminding me. When I sent the message they had just three snails picking up and delivering the post, now they have TEN snails zipping back and forth. What took you so long Gari?

Still, at least they don’t go on strike.
