In 2004 I worked on a multi-million dollar sci-fi animation series (Captain Scarlet). Years later, in 2011, I was amused to discover that an expressionless mannequin head was far more emotionally communicative than the characters used on the TV show.
At this time myself and Andreas Paleologos, aka: Cuckoo, (who plays the scarf wearing alien and made the synth music) would have lunch at a Pakistani restaurant which played pirate DVDs of Bollywood music videos with the most appalling colour balance and digital compression. We thought they looked fabulous! 'Quality? Pah - give me the noise!'
Below is an animatic of the 5 min animation 'DINOMIGHT!' which I made with the brilliant Martin Clapp in 2001. The project never got beyond this stage but elements of it made it into 'IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU GO THEY'RE ALL IDIOTS!' This features the music of God The Band, written specifically for the film.
Also below is a 'making off' video. (Which is a complete lie and has no bearing on how we actually made the film!) And a brief montage of some of my entirely daft and unsuccessful fund-raising videos.... dear oh dear....
