So my son, Ollie and I really started messing around with stop motion animation when he was a lot younger, basically animating his Toy Story Mr Potato Heads one wet sunny Sunday morning to keep him occupied and happy. The dreary, damp and rainy weather couldn’t prevent us from having family weekend fun and enjoyment and the first of many spud based animations was unleashed onto the internet. This animation short became Peter Parker Becomes Spiderman, a very quick and funny morphing Super Hero Spud which has found success on YouTube, with over a million views to date! It must have inspired him because he’s now studying for an Animation degree!
There are several animated examples of Spuds in motion on here, some even have full on scraps with each other! I moved onto creating and programming apps more recently, but essentially I’m an experimenter and Doctor Who fan playing around with new digital technologies!
The software I use to fuel my digital creativity is:
Mobile App Development
- Unity 5
- Corona SDK
- Adobe Animate CC (formerly Adobe Flash CC) and Starling SDK
Animation and 3D Work
- After Effects CC
- Cheetah 3D
- Final Cut Pro
- Adobe Premiere CC
- Adobe Photoshop CC
- Adobe Fireworks
Website and Database Development
- Adobe Dreamweaver CC
- WordPress Framework
- Joomla Framework
- MySQL and PHPAdmin
Originally my son’s animated 3D Teddies proved to be an inspiration for a simple matching app, but in 2013 fifty years of Doctor Who proved to be another fan based source of inspiration for me to try my hand at producing a simple Monster based Hangman game. This simple app has clocked over 60,000 Google Play downloads to date! I’m aiming to update it with more clues, hints and pictures of the monsters.
So you can see I’m never far from finding and acting upon inspiration which I find from many sources. Feel free to Contact Me with any business enquiries.
