On Monday I worked on the background, which is oil on glass animation. It was actually my first time using a rostrum and Dragonframe so it was really nice to get used these methods which are commonly used in animation. Doing the background was really fun, oil painting...

Obviously my main inspiration for the project was Paula Rego's paintings, but since they are still images, I wanted to look at animation styles and techniques that would work well with it. The main climactic moment of the film (which I also spent the most time on) is t...

Working with the textures has been, as I thought, quite challenging. Since the initial texture scans were very high quality, it made the software crash when I tried to save my work, so I then had to scale them down and even so I had to save every time I overwrote a col...

I have been working on transferring redoing the keyframes from my animatic onto different software, adding in-betweens and thinking about colour. I really enjoyed making this, the hardest part was making all the different shapes that come from the split human, which is...

After having worked with my original concept for a while, I decided it wasn't challenging enough technically or artistically, and more importantly that it wasn't engaging enough with the artist's style. I did plan to use colour, texture and linework to reference it, bu...

Exploring Paula Rego's early work alongside digital animation software has inspired me to create the piece in a way that emulates her use of colour, line and texture. 

What initially drew me into this style was the use of nearly flat, but textured colours, and the strik...

I worked more on the animatic and came with a close-to-finished version. I edited the timing to make it more fluid and in tune with the audio, and used some cross-dissolves to make the visuals flow a bit better.

The main change I thought could work well for the film had to do with scene transitions. Rather than having cuts between them, I decided it would be more interesting and visually satisfying to use morphing and/or camera movement instead. I haven't tried this kind of an...

Looking into the different artists for the Tate project has been really exciting, I would have to say though that among them Paula Rego stood out in visual style, voice and what she had to say. 

Her motifs of myth and folklore and dark fairy tales really appeal to me; t...

I started with some rough sketches to get some ideas out. I tried visualising the climax of the narrative I had come up with, and the main problem I found with it was that although it makes for an interesting story and corresponds with the quote, it is a pretty literal...
