Music Matters - Eskimo Joe

I animated the stop motion elements for this little clip about Australian band, Eskimo Joe, as part of the Music Matters campaign:

The clip uses a mix of stop motion and flash animation with a bit of rotoscoping thrown in for good measure (my left arm makes a house crushing guest appearance).

All the 2D animation was done by Oh Yeah Wow's resident creative super freak, Jayden Dowler, who was also responsible for sculpting He-Man and Skeletor.

I may have to steal his brains at some point...

Made for China


The head of animation at my old university in Queensland commissioned me to sculpt a replica of the pirate from my graduate film Here Be Treasure. Apparently there's a massive animation college in China that QCA has made friends with and they wanted examples of student work to take overseas as part of a guest lecture from Australia.

Rehashing old models is always a great indication of how far your sculpting ability has progressed
and it's something I really enjoy.

...especially when the university is footing the materials bill.
