Multi functional table for Stop-Motion Animation

I talk about making a multi functional table for the studio. This can be used to create my armatures and models, then flip over and use the same table for animation. It will be a completely multi functional table. The first of it’s kind. Quite excited to make it as the design keeps getting better. There will be a mount for my camera to do over head time lapses too. Check out how excited I get in the video below

A special Announcement

So on Thursday 5th April 2018. Lorna and I got the keys to our house. Yes we’re first time buyers and it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions. We’re so happy to finally get the keys and take a good look around and see what we have bought.

This video shows me and Rupert waiting for Lorna to come home so we can go in and raise a glass. There will be plenty more videos to do with the house in upcoming blogs.

Early Man Review

My idol is Nick Park. The reason I got into Stop Motion Animation is because of Wallace and Gromit. I was fascinated by them and wanted to know exactly how Nick did it. So after the success of Chicken Run, his first feature and the relatively good film starring the duo. He is back with Early Man.

A lot was riding on this film. With the amazing technology of CGI and the rapid prototype animation used by Laika in America. Aardman and Nick Parks needed a smash and unfortunately this is not the smash they were looking for. See my review below.

New 9.7-inch iPad with Pencil

new-ipadThe New 9.7-inch iPad is now available and the big plus is it comes with Apple Pencil support! This is great news for people who have looked at the iPad pro models and shrieked at the price of them! Obviously the downside is that they wont have the power behind the iPad pro versions but if you’re someone who just wants that extra control when drawing and adding notes, you’ll be able to do just that with this iPad.

It does come with the A10 Fusion chip. Engineered for performance.

64‑bit architecture. Four-core design. Over 3.3 billion transistors. Translation: iPad is incredibly fast. Which comes in handy when you want to edit a 4K video, play graphics-intensive games or experience the latest augmented reality apps.

Exciting times ahead for all you budding illustrators/student who didn’t want to pay £600 plus.

Personally for what I do, editing animating and vlogging with an iPad. I feel you need the extra power you get from the pro’s. Click the iPad below to see the version I bought. You can buy the Apple Pencil by also clicking the image below.
