Not so hot on the rebound when he sidles in at the end… but I like the general idea of a ninja tadpole. As I said before it’s annoying that Photoshop’s GIF saving defaults to playing the GIF once. You make lots of edits to get the timing right and inevitably end up publishing a GIF that doesn’t loop…
I voiced the “blink and you’ll miss it” Announcer for this Susan Boyle show on ITV a few years ago. Just ran across it again. If you watch the show you could be forgiven for thinking I was wearing a tuxedo and standing behind the curtains. But no, I was in a sound booth in Soho a few days prior to broadcast. Wearing a cowboy hat and wellies.
You can see a rare glimpse behind the scenes of a Boj voiceover here, where I play Mr Cloppity going off into a reverie. (I know the picture looks like it should be clickable, but I can’t figure out how to do that… maybe it’s something to do with facebook links?)
You’ll be able to hear me as the Narrator on Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small from 2nd October on Tiny Pop. I also wrote three episodes! Very exciting for me as Miffy is the first book I ever remember reading at the library (Balham, in case you’re wondering, on Boundaries Road. There’s an astroturf pitch there now.)After launching on Freeview channel 126 in January this year Tiny Pop became available in 26.3 million homes. It has since more than doubled its ratings to become the third strongest channel overall for Kids 4-6, after CBeebies and Disney Junior.
With Miffy’s 60th anniversary celebrations in full swing this year, the new series marks the first time the iconic white bunny has ever been seen in CGI.
Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small has been developed by London-based animation studio Blue-Zoo, and features 52 x 7’ episodes. It is the animated sequel to the successful Miffy and Friends, the initial stop motion series which aired in more than 70 countries from 2003 onwards.
I animated both of these adverts, directed by Steve May. Turned out nice!
