Adventures in Chaos
People sometimes ask me where I get my weird ideas from, so in this talk I will attempt to trace the evolution of one of my ideas and chart its journey through the mess both inside and outside of my head. Hopefully along the way I will give you some kind of insight into how I use After Effects to make my animations, if my laptop doesn’t die in the process. I will also be bringing some weird videos along to play occasionally when I get bored listening to the sound of my own voice.
I’ve been working as a freelance animator for about 6 years now, creating surreal and nightmarish visions for TV titles, music videos and advertising campaigns. However, I am mostly known for the weird stuff I make between jobs, for my own amusement. I currently live somewhere in the Hampshire countryside where I work from home, animating with Adobe After Effects and fighting off a never-ending army of spiders.
In addition to Cyriak’s talk, we will also be raffling a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 6! The winner gets a choice of either the Design, Web or Production Premium editions.
The usual rules apply. You have to attend the meeting to be entered into the raffle. If you cannot make it you can nominate someone to accept the prize on your behalf, assuming they have agreed to do so and are present at the meeting. You get one ticket for each talk you have attended since the last raffle in December. If you have given a talk in the last 6 months you get an additional 5 tickets. The Managers’ decision is final!
If the weather improves, we may also have a barbecue.
