After three weeks of intense late nights, we managed to roll out the first episode of Froot Fly – ‘Merry Christmas’, just in time for Christmas. Here she is:
I animated the last three shots, from around the 0:40 second mark to the end, and also arranged the Layout for the whole short. It was Directed by Matt Bugeja, and information on the rest of the crew can be found over at Froot Fly’s Crew Page. Fantastic team, one I can’t wait to work with again.
Huge thanks goes to Oasim Karmieh, as the poor guy was left texturing, lighting and rendering right up to Christmas Eve on the short, but he did a fantastic job as I love how everything came togethe. Such a great project to work on, and stay tuned for more episodes in the very near future – I’m going to be Directing the second short, which sould be out in the coming weeks.
Hello, I’ve gone ahead and created a new section for my ‘Photography work’. I wasn’t too happy with how my photos were previously displayed, so I’ve joined Tumblr and created a whole new page that’s linked to my homesite and Flickr.
(If anyone knows how to disable the ‘click to load more pics’ function and have all my photos load at once on this theme and Tumblr, please get it touch, as I’ve searched high and low – and can’t find a work around anywhere)
I have just updated my showreel with some of my shots I did for the ‘You Get Me‘ music video I did over at Arx Anima:
All the information about the reel, and shots can be seen on the Showreel page : Iestyn Roberts – Animation Showreel. I’m currently on the lookout for some animation work, please feel free to get in touch if you require some animators.
I also want to thank my super amazing girlfriend for being so incredible to me whilst I’ve been working on my reel. Diolch cariad.
I’ve just returned to Wales, and over the weekend I headed out, up to Moel Eilio as I haven’t been up there for a few months now. The sun was blasting, and there was only a few other people up at the top, who ran back down as quickly as they arrived, so I had the whole mountain to myself.
As it was around midday, the lighting wasn’t perfect, but I did manage to take a couple of panoramas of the view towards Snowdon.
Moel Eilio is located just North West from Snowdon itself, so the view is always pleasant, and is tagged at 726m high.
