A belated update...

I just realised I hadn't updated you guys in a while with what I've been doing since graduating! So if you were wondering..

Well It was one hell of a year, 3rd year was immensely busy, we finished our graduate animated film The Monster In good time, and The Honey Plot, for which I completed some 3D elements for 2D integration was also finished to a great standard and has been very well received so far.

I had an interview just a couple of days after actually graduating, and I am very proud to inform you that a week later (that felt like an eternity) I was offered the position that I had seriously longed for for a long time! (Horribly structured sentence, I know.)

So for the past 6 months I have been a Matchmove Artist at Framestore, working in feature film from the outpost office in Bournemouth.

Many people ask me what my job actually involves, and I still haven't got the hang of explaining it to family and friends. In short, it involves extrapolating a camera's motion from the footage on a shot-by-shot basis. Maybe my next post can explain it in detail, its really quite interesting if you're a film/vfx/cgi nerd like me!

So that's the recap, sorry it's been so long but life has been very busy lately. Thanks for reading!

New website

Ok, end of term... job time!

Just posting to say I've got a website up and running, it's been there a while but I forgot to mention it! Just a bare bones thingy, an up-to-date showreel, CV and some drawings.

Find it over at adyholt.wordpress.com

I hate buying greetings cards. What's the point? its a piece of card that costs £3! So this year for my brother's 30th I thought I'd just draw him one. I never really do it because I know I'm not amazing at drawing but I bit the bullet this time!

Besides the subject matter is his cat... I love that cat! He just cracks me up! The fattest, loudest, cuddliest, grumpiest and most high maintenance cat I've ever known. So here he is, sporting his trademarked apathetic stare. Seriously, he always has that blank expression on his face.

(I'm really annoyed that his tail went off the edge, and then, the stupid auto scanner cropped it even more!)

It's been a while!

Yeah so I haven't posted for ages, (Not because I've stopped working) but because of the funny copyright deal with our film work.

I have managed to put a showreel together though, check it out! It's only the first version, it does need changing:
