4Mations Skull Kittens

Heh heh, I was just digging through some old files to update the Evansfinch blog and I came across these animated shorts I created in 2008 for 4Mations.tv through Team Rubber and Aardman Digital. Thought I’d pop them up for your viewing pleasure :D Also found out that it was @JamFactory that designed the kittehs… the things you learn on the interpipes! Good times.

Awww… Li’l kitten go nu-nights! Mrawr, cootchie cootchie cooo…

Yaaaaaaaawn, kitty go nu-nights!

Stupider and stupider… how silly can it get? …pretty damn silly! You just wait until I get on to the ones of other people that I made! C’mon people, lets get this moving on the social pipes – If you like these cat pics, tell your friends! Toot on the twitter-tubes and lick them on the face-pipes, just click the handy buttons below… GO!

Dave Cat Pictures No.1

I’ve already posted a few of these, but I think they’re worth their own little slot! Makes oi larf so they does…

 

Aww, look at him play! Rawr...fft fft!

 

I grew up with cats and got to know their personalities well. It rubbed off in my animation work as I loved drawing cats and enjoyed exploring the way they think and move (I got my first job at Aproductions essentially on the strength of a feline character animation test…). I had lots of fun taking silly photos of myself with a digi-cam and photoshopping my head on to images of cats – this is the result!

The Man from Del Cropley… he say Yes!

Its Sunday (day of rest?) and I’ve been at work all day (sigh… again.) so lets wind up with a cup of tea, a chocolate hobnob and some classic photoshop sillyness…

The Man from Del Cropley... he say Yes!

I created this in early 2000 on my 1st PC, a Pentium 3 500MHz beast utilising a cutting edge 1 Megapixel digital camera (which was the size of a small housebrick). Nearly 11 years later and the processor in my new phone is twice as powerful as that PC. Had loads of fun taking ridiculous pictures of myself and grafting them onto a composite of the apple tree in my then garden. Lets call it an homage to the crappy Del Monte Orange juice ads of yesteryear…

2 Large Cat-like Creatures seen Near Clifton Suspension Bridge

It appears there must be a breeding pair located somewhere between Somerset and Mid-Wales, possibly at the Hereford Border. Initial reports confirm one large adult and one kitten, apparently hunting cars on the Avon Portway…

Residents were in a state of confusion. Mr T. Bumberclutz, Clifton said “I was out oiling my gerbils when I looked back towards the wife Marjorie and saw these two Gert Stonkers, I almost dropped my Marsupial grease…” Fascinating.

Fishboyfilms Showreel 2008

This is the last professional animation showreel that I put together before starting EvansFinch Ltd in Summer 2008. I got sick of seeing so many dull showreels that I thought I’d try and do something a little bit different – a concept showreel if you will! :D I took AC/DC’s Rock classic ‘Back in Black‘, edited it to 1 min 30 secs and went to town!

I re-branded my freelance animation business as ‘Fishboyfilms‘ after the leaving the kids animation industry in 2007 to move away from traditional Broadcast media into the online world… and the rest is history! :D

Mouks_REMIXED

This is still probably my favourite independant film I’ve produced to date. It was created in 2 weeks flat from artwork that took me 5 years to make! I’m a big lover of video mashup culture and this is my homage to the likes of Hexstatic, Coldcut and all those cut-up artists out there keeping the freak flag flying…

The soundtrack is a white label bootleg called ‘In and Outta Space’ – No clue who its by but its a breaks mix of Prodigy’sOutta Space‘ that samples the legendary reggae cut ‘Chase the Devil‘ by Max Romeo. Incidentally its from a 70 minute party breaks mashup mix called the ‘Mouk Town Mashup‘ I created under my DJ/Producer pseudonym ‘DJ Cropmaster Flex’

‘Mouks’ – The Money Shot!

Everyone has a labour of love in their life – this was mine! 5 years in the making (!) and weighing in at a girthy 3 whole minutes. Created in my spare time to keep me sane from animating teddy bears waving day-in-day-out in my day job! This really is what years of working in the kids animation industry does to someone. Officially deemed ‘too strong for Aardman‘ – not sure what to make of that little claim to fame… enjoy (I did!)

It was fully animated from start to finish in Traditional 2D, then scanned and traced in Adobe Flash. It is what it is, but I can’t tell you how much this stupid little film means to me. The SFX and music was a joint effort from Darren Lambourne (who came up with the gruesome baby noises and visceral crunches) and Robin Stout who dragged it up from the gutter!

Dennis meets Christopher Kennedy Lawford!

As part of the WHAD (World Hepatitis Awareness Day) 2007 Campaign for Rubberductions I also created this 30 second sting. Again featuring our hapless hero Dennis, this time meeting Christopher Kennedy LawfordJohn F Kennedy’s nephew (!), who is a Hep C sufferer himself:

Again, I had lots of fun making this spot. It was a very quick turn around, created in under 5 days using Adobe Flash. I really enjoyed hooking up the 2D animation/Live action mix, and the SFX supplied by Robin Stout at Medinasound (who also created the SFX and Music for ‘Mouks’) rounds it off a treat. Short and sweet!
