From Hypernurbs to HyperNerd!

I am an animation student towards an FdA and am, I have to confess a bit of a… er, how should I put this? Big geek when it comes to animation!! A paw reverentially at tomes on Cinema 4D, Blender and Maya, look adoringly at posters for up and coming animated features and drool over each and every addition of 3D World magazine.

Of course all this odd behaviour stems from the fact that I love animated movies, being a big fan of the work of Pixar and Dreamworks, and my DVD collection seems increasingly filled with films aimed at the under 5’s! I am also a bit of a special effects junkie, discovering a fascination with both physical and computer VFX in 1993 after watching Jurassic Park, which also made me a life long fan of Stan Winston, Phil Tippet and Industrial Light and Magic. A love affair that has since expanded to embrace the extraordinary work of Weta Digital and Digital Domain.

Geek that I am, I want to fill this blog with all things animation; reviews, thoughts, surveys and of course a healthy dose of my own animations and 3D models in a shameless attempt at self promotion.

But its not all about me and I would love to know what you think, so please feel free to have your say by taking the surveys, adding comments here or emailing me at
