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.

New animatic

I finally made that better timed animatic with sound that i've been chatting about for ages -_- All the sound is free or just me...It's all meant to help tell the story, and help me understand the timing really!

Wolf research & development so far...

After doing a little observational research of wolves from tv and reality i’ve started to refine the original storyboard sketches of my wolf pup.
I will be hoping to strike a balance between human and canine- especially in the eyes, in order to gain the most emotional range possible from my wolf pup. I also want to keep him stylized but clearly recognisable as a wolf pup- i feel like in my original storyboard sketches, he more closely resembled a cat….
The final design is still to be confirmed

What I did on my Christmas Holidays....

Recce number 2! This time: Templeton woods, and then on to Cupar for some wolf drawing :D
