Beauty and the Beast

Hi. Well been a very busy week all round. On top of my university work I decided to take on the task of animating over two minutes of animation in a week and a half. . .
No small task I'm sure you'll agree. The animations where commissioned by the Acting department in the arts university, for the third year graduation production of 'Beauty and the Beast.'

After having seen the last two productions. 'The house of Bernada Alba' and 'Love on the Dole'. I quickly realised the quality of the acting was beyond any measure, and that the animations had to live up to that standard. And so with the help of Carmen Bromfield Mason. Tom Tanner. Michael James Field and Frayah Louise Humphries. We set about creating the various different shots.

These screen grabs hopefully give you an idea of the style and mood we went for. It was all hand drawn and hand painted. I was chuffed to bits with the outcomes of the shots and I cant thank my team enough for helping.
I have yet to see the play. Tomorrow night is the night. And I personally cannot wait. If your interested in seeing the shots or hearing about the play I hope to upload them soon in a new post.
In the mean time, I am thankful to find myself getting back into the swing of having spare time.
All the best

I really hope so, im thinking of uploading them to vimeo soon. But they where used in a 3rd year acting production and I don't know whether they now own the copyright to them . . .
What do you think?
