Deadendia

I am so lucky to be involved in Netflix’s new show, ‘Deadendia’, being created by MysteryQ in London. I have moved into the Pipeline Director role for this project. It has been seriously challenging stepping up to meet the demands of this role through the Covid-19 pandemic, but the team are phenomenal and I’ve been loving it!

Cannot wait for it to air on Netflix next year. It is so much fun! It’s charming, clever, spooky and funny. Hamish has created a stunning diverse range of characters, with our main character Barney being transgender and Norma being neurodiverse.

Let’s Not Go Away

We worked on this absolutely amazing little Christmas short in Blue-Zoo. It’s a music video for Scouting For Girls Christmas song “Let’s Not Go Away”. It was directed by Blue-Zoo’s People and Talent co-ordinator, Katie Gascoyne, who won a blind pitch for it. It was a really quick turn-around (just 6 weeks) but the 2D team got a chance to jump in and create and it was incredibly good fun!

I rigged Mandy, the main female character. And some background characters too.

 

“It’s Pony”, episode 1

Nickelodeon has released the first episode of “It’s Pony”, the show I’ve been working on, as a Christmas Day special. I have been loving working on this show. It’s so cute, funny and charming. Be sure and keep an eye out for it on Nickelodeon in 2020!

 

Access: VFX Summer School

For the class, I made a very simple little rabbit rig in Toon Boom Harmony and had my students make him jump. I did a little demo animation as well!

Fighting Words is an amazing organisation that teaches kids and adults how to write creative stories. We had the privilege of turning one of these stories, Ghost Quest, into an animated short. It was such a rewarding project to help out on, despite the very tight deadlines and the crazy textures!!! We tried very hard to match the drawings given to us by the 15 kids who worked on this project, aged 11-13. They wrote a crazy story and drew some crazy characters, but it’s amazing! I just love it!
