A couple of years ago I started work on a short animated film. I worked on it for about 6 months on and off. I was really enjoying the process but in all honesty probably spending too long on it. Animation is a realm I've always been fascinated by, but always lacked the confidence and tools to get into it. Regardless of how long it was taking me to find a stride with the project, it was up and running and I was working on it almost daily.
However, the film kind of slipped to the back burner as before I knew where I was, I'd moved house, changed jobs and we'd had a beautiful baby. Quite a lot has been going on in life over the last two years to say the least!
During a catch up with a good friend a few days ago, the film came up in conversation. My friend is a proper artist you see, and when I was working on the film I used to see him every day at work and we'd chat about how it was going. As usual the other night, I was talking about my frustration at my lack of current creative projects, he asked about 'that' animation and ever since I've been thinking about how cool it would be if I could ever get the thing finished.
I'm gonna give it a shot, let's see what happens. Terry this is all your fault!
In the meantime, here's a screen grab from one of the scenes I'd been working on. Meet Frank!
