Operation Robot Design Process

I was given a great brief in 2010 to design a Robot character for the Welsh Prostate Cancer Charity, Glaze. I thought I'd post some design doodles from my journal to show my design process. It was a great project as I was given free-reign to take it from concept to completion.

Examples of Iconicles Work

Just a sample of some of the shots I completed on the Cbeebies Production "Iconicles" whilst working at Dinamo Productions.

I will be editing a shiny new Demo Reel together soon for future job-seeking exploits.

1 year Dinamo-versary

That's been one hell of a quick 12 months, especially as I was only supposed to be at Dinamo for 8. I'm not actually going to make the 1 year Anniversary 'tho as the project and therefore my work-contract finishes 1 week before.

But we ain't finished there yet tho' and the next month is going to be super-busy getting everything finished. Then a holiday...then the wrap-party...then my new job ;]

New Job + 2 weeks

Job is going great, in fact, this is probably the happiest I've been in my job in about....8 - 9 years! At the moment I'm working on "Grandpa in my Pocket" which is a Cbeebies program starring James Bolam from "The Likely Lads" and "New Tricks". At the moment we're getting used to the Production Pipeline as they've just finished shooting all the Live-Action and Green-screen scenes. The scenes get tracked and then passed to the Animators to add Grandpa. It's really cool as my background is in Games so I've never really animated to Live-Action plates before. We visited the Studio to see some of the scenes being filmed last week which was cool.

Plus the old animation confidence comes rushing back when you're doing it 40 hours a week.

Operation Robot

Here's an image of some work I've done for a friend. It's not finished yet, still have some decals to paint on, but it's ready for print for a Prostrate Cancer Fund-raising event tomorrow.

Examples of work past and present

Animation Showreel 2010 from Gareth Cavanagh on Vimeo.

This is a scene from the series "Fireman Sam" that I worked on for Calon. It was a Stop-Motion Show, but we wanted to see if we could incorporate CG elements into it. This was the only full CG shot that was broadcast.

This is an old 'reel from 2005, some of the work classed "Modelling and Animation" isn't my animation, but the majority of it is.

Spring Clean v1.9


I've got rid of my old domain as that egg has long since been scrambled. Which means the link to my 'reel is temporarily un-available [not a bad thing at the moment.]

Will hopefully have a new, more relevant domain and page up and running soon.
