Simon in Politics

Here is the Shirt

Time to put the pressure on ...

The Schoolies crew have made a promise to ourselves: we are going to finish three scenes before the Christmas break.

This means there will be a webisode ready in the New Year!

While we are thinking about stuff i should take the time to mention my Animators, all graduates of the various animation collages around Perth in WA. Helping us out in a Big way is the Film and Television Institute, situated in Fremantle WA. So special thanks goes out to those there, @Phil Bebb, @Ebbie Williams, @Fern Nicholson, @Noah Norton and @Glen Adams who have all been a great help in getting Schoolies happening.

Tomorrow night a group of FTI animation students Graduate, and I am immensly proud, not because i taught them and now they are animation slaves for me, but because they are all fantastic talented animators who are tight knit enough to rival the mighty magnificent 7 (you might know the mag 7 as the Doomwhales [DoooooWhooot!])

so Angie, Dan, Bianca, Shani, Miles, Crystal, Richard and Lenny, Have a Great night and all my best wishes to you all.


PS - if dan is up for it I should post Arrr here so you all can see their first film!

Julius and Daxter

The sickening side effects of workplace procrastination.

Voice recording!

What a blast we had recording voices for Schoolies last Friday!

We discovered so much talent during the auditions. It was hard to choose between them, but in the end we found all our characters, and there were a lot of "Ah ha! You'll be perfect!" moments.

On recording day, all our actors took direction well and fitted their characters like gloves. Gloves with excellent diction and interpretive skills.

Wendi Graham, sound engineer extraordinaire, came in to look after us. Wendi has the keen hearing of rare nocturnal marsupials. Not only can she detect the smallest sound problem, but more importantly, she has the technical expertise and experience to fix it on the spot.

Our voices are with Wendi now, being polished and buffed. When they come back we can get into the real meat of animating this first episode. I can't wait.
