This is intended to be a personal diary, just to spring clean some of the shit that's clogging the filing cabinets of my brain, making it hard for me to function ^-^
If you know me well you will know I have had anxiety for nearly 4 years and I am currently taking a drug called Citalopram! For those that didn't know, well, now you do! I have been on other drugs and have had Cognitive Behaviour Therapy but lately I have relapsed. My life has changed so much over that time that I am struggling to make sense of possible causes, triggers, cures, safety behaviours and so on... This will hopefully help me to share and explain some of my fears, actions and hopes.
I just need to draw some of this crap out!

The film I have been working on for nearly 2 years is currently released at cinemas in the UK! Aardman Animations 'The Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists' has been getting awesome reviews - it really is AMAZING! :D I love love LOVE every second of this film and I am so proud to be involved! I have an anecdote about every single shot and I know every line off by heart! I would be the most ANNOYING person to watch this film with EVER!
On this film I was a CG Lip Sync Animator - working in a team of 3, we animated all the lines of dialogue and expressions that would be needed for each shot. Mouth sets were created for each character and this meant the stop motion animator in control of the shot could concentrate on the characters performance and action safe in the knowledge that the dialogue and expressions were synced and worked out ahead of time :D
The film above explains the process and I got to animate the little mouth in the box! I have never done stop motion animation before so it was so awesome to be given a unit to myself for the afternoon and work on the other side of what I'd been doing for nearly 2 years ^-^ (MASSIVE thanks to animator Andy Spilsted for the opportunity!)
This is me at the premier with my gal Cutlass Liz! :D
Go see it NOW! You won't regret it! :D
