A preview of ‘Guard – a Pantomime shot’

I’m currently rendering out my latest animation for my demo reel. It’s a pantomime shot that I based on my Animation Mentor shot – but I felt the AM shot wasn’t strong enough, so I fleshed it out a bit more. Here’s a still preview of what’s coming in the next couple of days:

Final Render of 'Guard - Pantomime'

Huge thanks goes to the awesome Oasim Karmieh for lighting and setting up the shaders on the scene for me so I can learn a bit more about lighting. I think he’s done an incredible job, and I’m looking forward seeing the final animation all rendered out! Thanks buddy.

I’ll be posting the completed version within a couple of days.

Back to Animation!


End of last year, my beloved PC gave up and died. I was really sad to see it go, I loved that thing, but, on the upside, I’ve been converted, and converted I have indeed, to the awesome that is Mac.

My girlfriend was telling me how awesome her Mac was, and after a lifetime (ish) of being with PC, I decided that a change was in order, so I jumped in, and got me a new 27″ iMac.

My Office

This new machine is just pure awesome. From the moment I switched it on, everything just worked, everything! Everything is so sleek, smooth, with nice lines, curves where there should be, and the power of this thing is phenomenal!

So! Because of this awesome beast of a machine, and wanting to be with my girlfriend, I’ve started animating again. After a looong break of doing things that I’ve been wanting to pursue, such as mountaineering, and just general break from the computer, it’s time to buckle down, and make things happen.

I’m working away on my demo reel, and right now, I’m working on a pantomime shot. I’ll be sure to keep the blog posted as to how the progress goes.
