About this Blog

I am an MSc Animation & Visualisation student at DJCAD in Dundee, Scotland. "Once Bitten" is the working title for my personal project and final outcome short film. The characters in my film will be 2D, animated digitally, but the environments they inhabit will be filmed in live action.

"Once Bitten" is a story about a woman who meets a wolf cub alone in the forest, the mood is light and playful and about the pair of new friends escaping their normal lives. However the mood darkens when the cub accidentally falls into a human trap and his mother catches up with him and his new companion.

Here We Go Again

Hello, and welcome to my new project blog! 

I'm back at Duncan of Jordanstone to be a resident animator  after graduating from the course in 2013, and i have an idea for a film i'd like to make ^_^ I'll be posting all updates here, so follow the blog if you'd like to keep an eye on me!

Basically i had this idea for a long time to make a short animated film based around the story of Anastasia the lost Princess, i wanted to make it in 2D and have lots of lovely pattern through it in the style of a russian story book. I was inspired by Secret of the Kells by Cartoon saloon, it had lots of pattern in the style of the illustrations in the Book of the Kells.

Anyway, this idea got put to one side when i made a sketch in preparation for halloween- trying to think of a costume for myself.

This cute little badass has dominated my work ever since. I decided to keep the cool russian-pattern-style for the film though, but completely change the story.

The Synopsis: 
A young girl with extraordinary, secret, slaying powers protects her village from the threat of  an evil monster living in the forest.

Yes, it's a bit "Little Red Riding Hood". Yes, it's a bit "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". I could go on… I'm very inspired by powerful little women.

Stay tuned...
