Appeal for help!
About 4 years ago, I approached a young, musical-genius called ‘OZZIE’, and asked if I could make a video for his track, “Wario’s Castle”. He Said; “Sure, no problem dude.” and we left it at that. I had the ridiculous notion that the only way to represent the track in its full glory, was through the medium of animation. Four years spare-time later (sorry Jules XXX), and I’m still only 2/3’s of the way through.
However, I’ve come to realise that with my limited resources, and ever dissipating time on this cruel planet, I could never achieve the standard required for the spectacular ending I have planned. So, I’ve released the film in its un-finished state, and am currently looking for animators versed in ‘Poser’, ‘Daz’, or ‘Maya’ (specifically ‘Maya’ with the ‘Miarmy’ plugin), who want to help give it the animation the epic-ending it deserves. I’m possibly asking too much, but in an ideal world, I would like a ‘Peter Jackson’ style, battle-scene as the finale, so any technical animators out there, please get in touch. All budding animators will understand the constraints of Quality, over Time, over Money. So, from helping render individual animation frames on your own computer at home, to social-media and marketing and networking, your help will be invaluable.

As one would expect from an nationwide art project such as this these days, there are no wages on offer. This project was started purely for a passion and love of animation. All I can offer in return is a great big ‘THANK YOU!’, in the final credits and kudos-points on your CV. I’m reaching out to the animation community to help me finish-off, this behemoth. Interested parties please get in touch and together we can put this bad-boy to bed once and for all!

Fantastic Planet, E01: “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…
