Showreel 2011

Frankie Swan 2011 Showreel from Frankie Swan on Vimeo.

Forgot to post this! Many thanks to Paul/ Mr Paal for the advice and suggestions.
Music by The Dubliners,  Rocky Road to Dublin. Really got into their music during the long sleepless nights of trying to finish my film. It kept my morale up but also kept me singing past 3am annoying some. Their music also influenced the backstory for Fran's wife Mary in my film and listening to it helped me to stay involved with the motivation of my characters. So it seemed appropriate to have one of Luke Kelly's best on my reel.
You gotta love their beards.

miscellanies medley

I have been kept busy with work which is why i haven't been posting as prolifically as usual. Thought I would just share some of my 'thinking sketches' with you lovely people. My list of things i want to do keeps on getting larger and new ideas keep popping up out of the blue, i just wish there was more time in the day to draw it all down!
better post next time hopefully! gotta get my film up here too, so expect that soon.

The last of LAS 18

So thats it, the end of a fantastic year immersed in animation at Central Saint Martins. It flew by quickly but i enjoyed every moment of it (even the stressful bits) i just wish i could do it all over again.
I will miss my desk, my wall of inspiration, the common room, the line testers even flipbook but most of all ill miss the fantastic people i met on the course. i wish you all the best of luck for the future! keep in touch and keep animating!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank a number of heros who have helped me out a lot with my animation, drawing and story telling, especially with my final film. I am privilege to have received feedback, advise and support from such incredibly talented individuals. So Thank You (in no particular order):
Cheers for taking the time to help me but please don't stop coz i still need it!

Farewell to the northern line, Week 27-30 :(

Sorry for the disappearing act over the last few weeks i have been immensely busy with finishing off work, preparing for my show and basically sorting my life out. 
Well this is it my regular journey on the great Northern Line from Morden- Moorgate has now come to an end (i really wish i had done better drawings to commemorate this occasion) but i swear i shall continue my struggles elsewhere and upload as often as possible. 
Northern Line it has been emotional.
