Coming Soon...

Well I finished my first short comic! It is only four pages long and was done for the Graphic Short Story Competition for the Guardian's Observer. It is noir-esque, with a darker feel than a lot of the stuff I've been working on during uni. They are announcing the winner/runner ups next week so I'm going to wait (with fingers firmly crossed) until then before I upload the comic here. In the mean time I hope you enjoy this teaser poster I've made.

Bond is Back!!

I am so excited! Four years since Quantum of Solace came to the silver screen the newer, grittier Bond is back, with Daniel Craig reprising the lead role for the third time and Dame Judi Dench once again filling me with glee as M. I have avoided learning too much about the film, cast and any plot points and have only just allowed myself to watch the trailer. And I have to see it looks epic. The action looks fantastic, the cast is brilliant (Javier Bardem looks terrifying and genius and I am a big fan of Naomie Harris) and from what I can see the story looks solid. Plus they've brought back Q. Thrilling enough on its own, my excitement at having Q back is doubled by the fact that they have cast the sensational Ben Whishaw. I have been a massive fan of his for years and I am sure that he will be amazing. Because I am so excited I decided to make a Bond poster. And here it is:
I made it for a non-existent Bond film because otherwise I would have spent ages trying to choose which film to make a poster for! Hopefully Bond, M and Q are all recognisable, and I am quite happy with how they have all turned out (although I haven't quite captured Mr Whishaw's good looks). The pretty blonde is meant to be Miss Moneypenny, the next character I am hoping they bring back. For this I cast the wonderful Jemima Rooper. She is hugely funny, beautiful and I think she would make a brilliant 21st century Moneypenny. The beautiful woman with the red lips is Rosario Dawson, who would make a brilliant Bond Bad Girl; I can totally see her taking Craig. Of course I have already started musing what the plot for this film might be, but that's a story for another time.

So Many Ideas!

Now that I am finished with university I am finding myself overwhelmed with ideas. There is so much I want to do I barely know where to start. I've decided to go with some simple comic strip/graphic short story projects to help me get into the swing of things. Here is a concept panel from one of them...
I am writing a lot and I hope to be able to get into it on a more professional level at some point relatively soon...until then this will be my main showcase area, so I hope you like what I'm working on. I'm hoping to have the first finished graphic short story on here in the next few weeks.

Fly With Me!

So here it is; the final film. It is short, simple and quite sweet I think. The animation may be basic, but I hope the story rings true with people, as that is where I put most of my energy. Now its time to do it again in some other genres and mediums...

Finally Finished My MA!

Last month saw the final exhibition of my year groups work as well as a screening of all the finished films and games. There was some really amazing work done and I find myself once again a proud member of a very successful and creative year group. The film this year went through a lot of changes and ups and downs. Some of the changes were for personal reasons, others were for financial ones, but in the end I am happy with what I have made. I'm posting a trailer for the film and the poster for now, and the film will follow shortly. All in all I am happy with how things have turned out, but more than anything I am just eager to get on with some new projects!
