Exhibition and end of year


Havent posted in aaaaages. Going to do an update now. I finished my film after many busy days and nights and Im pleased with it. The pacing of the story and the sound in some places needs some work but the overall look of the film seems to have been pretty successful. Im going to get the last little bits done and then start sending it off to festivals, Im not sure if it’s the right sort of film but it cant hurt trying!

What seems like a long time ago, I started planning an exhibition for the class at the Centrespace Gallery. Yesterday was the opening night and it was wonderful. The screening area needs to be sorted out but overall, it was a successful first exhibition, especially considering we did it all ourselves with no help from the university. I still have a couple of things to do to my space which will annoy me until I do them so I will be going in today. Parents and grandparents are popping in so that will be really nice showing them my work, especially since they will say lots of nice things(even if they aren’t true):D.

Oh if anyone has picked up a business card recently and tried to access my website, massive apologies, its still under construction. If you would like to see a portfolio and/or showreel of my work, you can contact me on: and I would be very happy to send you/digital send you them.

Screenshots- Update

So its been ages since I last posted. The dissertation is out of the way. It is not 4 days until the deadline… My film is coming along very nicely, but there is still a lot to do. I have managed to rope some people into colouring(fantastic lovely people). I am hoping to start editing later today whilst I also finish colouring some frames alongside the other colourists.

I have changed small elements within my story. The end scene has been chopped. I decided I wanted a more open ended ending, I didnt want to give the audience too much, I wanted to leave it positive and hopeful but not cheesy or too neat.

Here are some finished screenshots. Pretty happy with them, the style feels like mine for once, I dont feel like I am trying to be anyone else which is nice:)
