Inspiration


Ishibashi Mitsyuki and Osada Yuko's video 'Jack Nicholson' for the Japanese punk band Bloodthirsty Butchers was a big inspiration. I came across an article in 'Shots' magazine and bought the onedotzero 4 Dvd in which it was one of many animations featured. Its limited animation but executed brilliantly. The Graphics are really strong

Judy Is A Punk



So this was the result. It's been up about a year now. But the animation was purposely jerky and the more it seemed (hinged) the more it made me laugh. Its been altered in After Effects to give it an oldish look.

Ramones Cartoons


I always thought it would be fun to do an animation to a Ramones song. So inspired by all those Saturday morning cartoons like The Osmonds,Jackson Five,Josie And The Pussycats as well as The Beatles of course. I did just that. Did you know The Beatles Cartoons were'nt shown in the UK (and only then in a truncated version) till the 80's ? The Beatles were kind of embarrassed by them. The first animation was to the song Judy Is A Punk. which i rediscovered when i saw 'The Royal Tenenbaums' its a great track.
