abandoned snake sequence

__________

Notes:

1. Made on 4th April, 2021
2. The snake was going to hiss out its tongue and lick the camera lens but I couldn’t work out how to make it stiff enough to reach upward between frames
3. So abandoned it mid sequence
4. Poor little snake
5. I’d messed up the lighting so you can’t see its cheeky little face anyway
6. Which would have ruined everything
7. If I hadn’t already ruined everything

Balloon Trip

__________

Notes:

1. Made on 28th March, 2021
2. Due to my own ineptitude (not recharging my camera battery) this had to been abandoned half way through
3. So there’s an entire space based section of this missing
4. Possibly forever
5. Depending on how much enthusiasm I can muster for finishing it off tomorrow
6. I should probably try and learn how to animate birds before then really
7. Also as always a pointlessly youtubed version, if you want to watch it there instead of here

And The Stars Tumbled Past Like Autumn Leaves

__________

Notes:

1. Made on March 1st, 2021
2. This was going to be part of an ambitious attempt to remake The Solar System And Almost Everything In It as a cartoon
3. With the spaceship travelling at 1AU a minute
4. Everything stretching on for an hour or more
5. While Toby Vok clanged and banged and occasionally screamed in the background
6. To spectacular effect
7. But unfortunately tedious and dispiriting technical problems have led me to abandon the idea
8. After four hours of work yielded that entire two seconds of animation above
9. So now I’m going to go and do something else
10. And stop whinging down here in the notes

A Trillion Tiny Planets

This is another storyboard for an unsuccessfully pitched cartoon, this time to Frederator. This story is also about a lone girl on a spaceship, but isn’t quite so depressing as “We would set our own hearts on fire for a mere moment of warmth”.








__________

Notes:

1. Written in December 2014
2. I’ve always quite liked this
3. And wish I could make it
4. Somehow
5. But I’m not sure my meagre skills would be able to do it justice
