We got to work with a really great new set of people making this animation. Andy Hague helped to build one of the neatest, most comprehensible comps I have ever seen and then I really struggled to match its excellence in the remaining shots. Cheers Andy. Being a method animator Anders Freij had to spend three weeks living as a cat in order to really connect with the feline psyche; quite justifiable if you ask me as the results are magnificently authentic. And I spent three torturous months rendering and re-rendering and putting stuff on fire. Well done me. A billion thanks to everyone involved.
Also I used Tyson Ibele's great building generator to create some of the buildings, (the others were built by the legendary builder Andy Lawson)... and then rebuilt them with simpler geometry but its an ace script anyway check it out.
EDIT: Currently part of The Kleptones live AV set, so shown at Glastonbury, Bootie London at Cargo, London and loads of other places!
Video mashup Superstar BorisB vimeo.com/alternativeboris is next up for the Videotones project and created a great video for The Kleptones 'This Song Smells' (Nirvana's 'Smell Like Teen Spirit' vs Blur's 'Song 2' which ends the Uptime album http://www.kleptones.com/pages/downloads_ud.html. He's done a great job, mixing in parts that will feature in the other videos to come, as well as bits from the film 'Little Murders'.
He also has 'The Final Word' with a cryptic message ;-)
We're still looking for contributors to turn the rest of the Uptime / Downtime album into video - so give us as shout or email Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
