I submitted this little doodle to Loopdeloop’s CHILDHOOD theme. It’s always fun to see how everyone interprets the same topic. Go check ’em all out and don’t forget to vote me up with some stars.

I’ve teamed up with the good people of Monster & Bear Productions in Brunswick. Here’s a little claymation intro I made recently for their upcoming web series ‘Rough as guts’, a behind-the-scenes look at how they make their incredible music videos. No bears were harmed in the making of this animation*.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the talented Elle and Carolyn of Pozible.  They came over, we chatted about crowdfunding Good Grief, Gomez stuck his nose in everything and we all ate cupcakes. Good times.

As an Ambassador to the Pozible network I’m very happy to pass on my experience and advice about how the campaign for Good Grief went, and what was involved. You can grab some of my hot tips over at GiveMeABreak, an arts blog run by my good friend Christie W of Animo studios.

In 2013 I ran a very successful crowdfunding campaign for my short film project Good Grief.  It was an absolute trip to see how many people were on board to support my little movie, and was an unforgettable experience  that has helped me to grow as an artist and film-maker.  I am so delighted to be able to give something back to the community that supported me by signing on as a Pozible Ambassador.

Along with a team of kickarse crowdfunding experts, I’m here to help the next generation of budding film-makers and animators craft a successful and engaging crowdfunding campaign. Feel free to drop me a line.

I rediscovered some earlier draft designs for my LEGO piece during a hard drive cleanup – here’s one of my faves.

I was recently on the ABC TV news talking about my new film Good Grief – you can see the full story on the ABC website.

The Pozible crowdfunding campaign for the film runs until October 12, so if you feel at all inclined to help us out you can find out more here.

Earlier this week I released the full version of my two minute short claymation film The Batchelor Experience from 2010 online in thanks for a bunch of lovely people sending me money to make a new film. Go and watch it!

Recently I was asked to come up with some animations and graphics for a really cool new environmental TV show called Ecotopia that’s currently airing on Melbourne’s very own Channel 31 community televion station.  Here’s what I came up with, with the help of the very talented Julian and Christie from Animo studio in Melbourne.

 

Earlier this year I was asked to design a piece for LEGO’s 50th Anniversary celebrations in

Australia. Awesome. No, really. Best gig ever.

The theme was ‘Play’, and I came up with the ‘Mocktopuss’, a deep sea creature who was afflicted with the need for scuba gear and a fear of seaweed. It stemmed from a game I play with my boyfriend where we go hunting for supercute snack food packaging from asian grocery stores.

You can see some of the other pieces included in the Festival of Play on the official website, and read all about the artists involved. Thanks LEGO and thanks OneGreenBean for an excuse to muck around with one of my favourite toys.
