'The Prince of Darkness is a gentleman.'

Brian Cox is where it's at! from Mark Grossi on Vimeo.

Like a midget wrapped in candy - I'll keep this short but sweet:

This is my entry for a competition titled "What's worth discovering @ Dundee". Now, most of you think that there really isn't much astonishment in Dundee apart from Fat Sams and the methadone queue outside Boots in Lochee on a Monday morning. You'd be mistaken, however, as our squishy, septic, drooling child of a city is the home of Brian Cox!

How you all forgot I'll never know, but a man who loves art, played Zeus and King Lear, played Hannibal Lector, and violated Hugh Jackman with an adamantium skeleton certainly transcends the status of a mere mortal.

The animation was finished over 2 nights and the sound was lovingly assembled and created by the multi talented Duncan "disorderly" Craig.

*Note* I squashed the file size like a grape, so the video and sound quality suffer to a slight degree. If for some reason you want a bigger, shinier version, then just message me and I'll send it out to you.

'The Punctuator' inbetweens

Here are the first set of inbetweens I've knocked up for Tom's majestic keyframes. The video quality is poor, so I apologise in advance.

I also tried to figure out 'Vimto', 'Videmo', 'Vimeo' (or whatever its called). Unfortunately my gloriously awful attempts culminated in being informed that I'd have to watch adverts before showing my video.

The Notebook

Not as in the 2004 film of the same name....but instead what happens if you smash your face at the age of 8 (courtesy of a bike accident) and asked to 'doodle on this here notebook'.
