Storm the Movie, online in the morning!

For those that don't know, Tim Minchin is a comedian (a fantastic one in my opinion), and he recorded a beat poem called Storm. I've been working on the animated version of it for a few months now and it's finally on youtube (2014 EDIT: It is also now a graphic novel. You can read about my small involvement here)

 I was heavily involved in the making so it's hard to quantify what my actual job was, but there was some animation, compositing, storyboarding and a bit of character design.

T'was directed by DC Turner, and produced by Tracy King. Making it has been an absolute joy and I'm so happy that iot's finally going up for everyone to see. It was one of those projects where the end goal was never far from sight, but there was ALWAYS that one more badnik jumping up from that final bridge to prevent you making it. And yet, it was never anything less than a delight to work on. I am very grateful to have been a part of this project and I'd like to extend my thanks to DC and Tracy.


  1. I copied your post on my Blog I hope you don't mind!

  2. Wow, it's a small world! I heard this was in the works from the sceptical blogs I frequent but I had no idea you were involved with the project.

    I just watched the full thing and I loved it.

    Also, LOL at using "badnik" as a normal part of your lexicon. =)

  3. Wow. I just saw it. It looked really nice! Congrats :) Btw, I also really enjoyed the Lush ad :) Nice stuff!

  4. Really cool.

    Except that it's Tim Minchin.

  5. What the shit is wrong with Tim Minchin!?! Met him! Wonderful man. I'm gonna tell him you said that. He's gonna be so mad at you. His next poem will be called ALEX.

  6. Really looking forward to your next blog post, sounds like it will be quite an insight :)
