‘Wario’s Castle’, by OZZIE

About 4 years ago, I approached a young, musical-genius from Brighton called ‘OZZIE’, and asked him if I could make a video for his track, “Wario’s Castle”. He Said; “Sure, no problem.” and we left it at that. I had a notion that the only way to represent the track in its full majesty was through the medium of animation. Four years later and I’m still only 2/3’s of the way through! I am now looking for animators, versed in Poser/Daz or Maya (specifically Maya with the ‘Miarmy’ plugin), to help me give the video the epic ending it deserves. Please get in touch if you can help. There is no wage on offer I’m afraid. Purely for love XXX

FANTASTIC PLANET – EPISODE ONE – A FRESH START

In 2015, I set myself the task of re-animating a brand-new version of the 1973 Czech animated masterpiece, “Fantastic Planet”, one episode at a time. So far, this has been one of the most challenging and technical projects I have ever undertaken, but now Episode One is finally complete, all I have to do is make Episode Two! Below you will find, “Fantastic Planet – Episode One – A Fresh Start”, to give you an idea of the look and feel for the entire project. BE WARNED! True to the original, this animation contains adult themes…

Here is the trailer…
