so it's been a long time since i've posted, a thousand apologies saiib. been working very very hard, have finished For Your Convenience and am awaiting the judgement of the good people at London International Animation festival...we'll see. However, for now, to keep myself's an updated version of my showreel.

i love stock footage. (click HQ to watch in high quality)

for people that enjoy seeing a whole film and not having it cut off by blogspot...

For Your Convenience roughy

at long last, i'm proud to present to you the full, if currently flawed, version of for your convenience. there's a lot of stuff that needs work on, namely bits of digital stuff that need sorting, and i'm trying my best to cope with the flicker but some of that is going to have to be put down to experience.

as i've been using my blog to document the rest of the development of the film, i thought i'd pop this in too, unfinished or no. be a good comparison for the final thing i think.,

i'm happy with it so far, looking forward to the final product....

without further ado...

Black Isle Brewery's Heather Honey Beer

"This wonderful crisp larger is modeled after the very popular Blonde but heather honey is added giving it a mild honey aroma and finish."

The sketch is for the Channel 4/4Creative Internship - they asked me what I'd advertise and how I'd do it if I could do anything. An opportunity to tell the world about possibly the best beer in the world? Yes please.
