Manifestations is an animated tale of love in which Mr. Chip seeks anime love in a psychedelic, ever-morphing virtual world. Music by Welsh Composer Ceri Frost
The California International Animation Festival is an excellent fest that “is dedicated to a recognition that animation, gaming and filmmaking are not separate businesses, but fingers on the same hand.” If anyone is in the Modesto/Riverside area tomorrow I urge you to go and support the California International Animation Festival.
Thanks to Dr. George A. Baker and Louise E. Baker.
Additionally, if anyone sees Manifestations at the festival, please leave a comment to let me know what you thought. Thanks!
‘Dead All Along,’ is an animated music video set in my version of on an Edward Gorey world. Cartoon Brew is an amazing site that probably doesn’t need an introduction, but it’s chock full of talent and inspiration of the animation kind.
‘Dead All Along’, By Ceri Frost, Dir by Giles Timms (2:13)
Enchanted by a pixie, a child called Yorick enters a magical kingdom, but when Yorick returns he finds his world ravaged by time. Made at the Animation Workshop at UCLA’s Department of Theater, Film and Television, 2009.
The animated music video is set in a hand drawn pen and ink world inspired by Edward Gorey and animated in a cut-out style. Compositing and animation in After Effects.
Image stills from my new music video, Dead All Along, performed by Ceri Frost.
Enchanted by a fairy, a child called Yorick briefly journeys in the fairy kingdom, but when Yorick returns to his world he discovers that everything has changed. The art direction for the film is inspired by the work of Edward Gorey and so the worlds and characters are hand-drawn in pen and ink.
Produced at UCLA’s Department of Theater, Film and Television, Animation Workshop. To be released this fall, 2009 :)
