Terminator Salvation Viral - Skynet & You














My Terminator Salvation animation used by Warner Bros as part of the film's viral campaign has passed the benchmark of 5000 views on You Tube!

What started as a fan video was quickly snapped up and integrated into the plot of the official marketing campaign and has featured on a variety of related sites including skynetresearch.com and resistorbeterminated.com.

The animation has also been pushed heavily on Twitter and Facebook to thousands of followers making it properly Web2.0.















The short film incorporates video footage with my own animation to high-light the technological advances made by Skynet in it's quest to 'Bring mankind and technology closer together, for a better future.'

The script was written by myself and performed by Melissa Bramley.















So far the clip has received massively positive feedback from lots of people even as far away as Singapore. Click here for the highly complimentary TOYSREVIL post.

It is fantastic to be part of the campaign for Terminator Salvation as I'm a huge fan of the original films and I'm really looking forward to the latest instalment. It looks like Mc G has done a fine job!

You can view the video below. Hope you enjoy.

Bamboozled? Video Footage



Here's some video footage taken on the night. Take a look if you managed to come along, you might see yourself on there. If you couldn't make it (like me) then take a look to see what went on.

It looks like it was a great night, well done to Kanoti for organising it all. Hopefully more of the same soon!

Modern Toss presents An Evening of Edwardian Chamber Filth




















Another animation event in Brighton! This time its "classic Modern Toss sketches projected onto a big screen and re-interpreted with a LIVE string quartet and piano." Sound good? I reckon so!

I hear they've got the voice of Drive-by Abuser doing a bit of live shouting as well, which should be brilliant. I'm not going to stand near the front though incase he directs some of it at me.

Ignore the dates on the flyer, its been moved to the 29th and 31st of May so there's still time to get yourself a ticket to this unique show. Click here to book now.

I think, although this is not confirmed that one of the sketches getting the live treatment will be the Sneezeman animation I did for Modern Toss series 2. I certainly hope so, it would be great to see it up on the big screen!

BAMBOOZLED? Outdoor animation screening














If you're out and about in Brighton on the 9th of May 2009 between the hours of 9 and 10 pm then why not check out a night of animated shorts including work from Local Talent including Kanoti, Modern Toss / LSM, Tokyo Plastic, Crush and Cyriak.

It is part of the Brighton Fringe Festival and is all in aid of promoting alcohol awareness plus it's FREE!!!

I was involved with two of the pieces being shown, the first is the DIMA Award winning "Work Experience" by Modern Toss and LSM, I was the Supervising Animator and second is "Winter Song" the music video for Grammy nominated singer Sara Bareilles for which I was again the supervising animator, this time working with Crush Design and LSM.
