Story so far…

So I’ve spent the last year (in uni) working toward creating my film, and I’m still headed toward that goal. I’ve learned a great deal of practical techniques and gained personal insight into my work ethic.

There have been times when I’ve lost sight, and stumbled into a little confusion – but the creative ambition continues to live on. I’m going to continue to work on my film, independently for the time being until I can organise some structure – some over arcing plan.

The next chapter in my life is DARE – a computer game competition hosted at Abertay – I believe in the library. I will spend 10 weeks honing my skills as part of the Gents of Fortune (you can follow us on our twitter profile here, to create the art assets for the game Quick As Thieves.

I’ll leave you now with a couple of screenshots and poster artwork for the story so far.. the tale of the bumbling hatted ne’er do well.. and his long lost friend turned foe.. I give you, Hatavar and Windbag in an Escape from Common Thought.


Also – here’s a still from the animation in progress -
