Recently the lovely, lovely Maria, Anders & Rune over at Ja Film in Denmark got me in to help them out with season one of Lego’s awesome new animated series Lego Elves. It really is a big project and is arriving with a massive worldwide release this March. I worked as one of three compositors, adding effects & magic and glows & particles & waterfalls etc… under the expert direction of lead compositor Mathieu Durand.
So the ever awesome Steph over at Creative Nuts asked me to very, very quickly texture & light a ballpoint pen to near photorealism and then animate it into an exploded line diagram. So I did, and I made it rain 15 million pens as well.
Check out all the other amazing things that Creative Nuts get up to.
I’m sure I mentioned it somewhere before, but in case you missed it… I am, and have been since the 90s, a performing VJ & live video artist. Working under the pseudonym VJ KodeK since about 2005, I have performed live visuals at the highest possible level, many unique high profile events and appearing onstage with Hip Hop royalty. I do occasionally still take bookings when they sound like they will be fun. Last year I nearly didn’t VJ at all, and then Ed asked me to cover visuals for all 9 hours of Sasha’s Brixton Academy NYE party. I invited long time VJing cohort Disaster Girl to come help out, modernise my technical setup and keep things interesting. She made this docupromo from our footage of the night. It’s sweet, no?
