Dinner With A Sketch Of The Band

Beautiful lady, beautiful voice and awesome band. I recently watched a new show called "Dinner With The Band". It features chef Sam Mason who cooks for some of his favorite bands and musicians and gets an intimate concert from them right there in his loft. Pretty cool huh?

The episode I saw featured Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. I was imediately hooked and bought one of her albums.

Below is a sketch of Sharon, but not really for the likeness, just for the feel and pose.

Thanks for visiting.

Animatic TO Animation

If you're like me, you enjoy watching the behind the scenes of a DVD just as much as the film itself, sometimes even more. I love looking at the storyboards, animatics and the character designs of a production to see where they began.

If you CLICK ON THE PICTURE below I put together a little test showing about 30 seconds of an animatic and then 30 seconds of the (more or less) final animation for a little production I'm working on called "Rise Above". There are a few differences, but for the most part the final animation follows the animatic.

I need to give props to Andrew Kramer from Video Copilot. I combined the Flash cartooning with After Effects and I used a few of his tutorials to achieve it, not to mention elements from their DVD "Action Essentials 2" which I think helped to push in the direction I wanted.

I'll be sharing the entire animation very soon.

Hope you enjoy and remember CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO SEE IT. :)
