Everybody’s Music, done in Toon Boom Studio by Lucy Crewe

NAME: Lucy Crewe

TITLE: Everybody’s Music

DESCRIPTION: The final year Major Project that took longer than anticipated to get off the ground. I know what it’s like making a Disney movie on such a tight schedule! From the start I wanted to make something with music, since I really enjoyed mixing samples in Reason and Cubase. Main inspirations were a few segments from Fantasia; Banjo the Woodpile Cat; The Aristocats; Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough; the Cartoon Network Groovies, and Mike Gabriel’s Lorenzo.

ARTIST: I’m a character animation/story artist, based in Leicester, UK. I have been drawing since a very early age, growing up on movies, video games, a fascination with nature and my mother’s affinity for art history and anatomy. I also used to do editing tricks with the old VCR. Timing was everything.

NAME:The Cubiclite

TITLE:The Stickman – Episode 6 The Lake Monster

DESCRIPTION: This is Episode 6 of my animated series, The Cubiclite’s Stickman Stories. It is part of my collection of videos that record my progress in learning animation and digital content creation in general. I am currently exploring Toon Boom Studio on my own, and I try to apply the new techniques that I am learning in the videos.

ARTIST: I have always enjoyed watching animated videos, and wanted to learn and start creating my own animations. Part of it is also to set an example and show the way for my loved ones to get creative. Hopefully, the work also benefits other wonderful people out there, and brings out their hidden talent.

Tango Milk Chocolates Advertisement, done in Toon Boom Studio by Ionone Bangcas

NAME: IONONE D. BANGCAS

TITLE: Tango Milk Chocolates Advertisement

DESCRIPTION: This was my first ever 2D animation project back in 2004 when I was just learning the ropes using Toon Boom Studio 1.2 for Mac. I was already a producer back then and a client gave me a project after seeing only one animated demo that I did. Soon after, the client decided they wanted to release it to 35mm theatrical film. I ended up making a 2K film version and an NTSC video version for TV broadcast. This project is special to me because it opened a lot of doors afterwards. As an indirect result, I co-founded a 2D animation company, BouncingBall, Inc. in Cebu City, Philippines in 2007 and served as its VP Operations until 2012.

ARTIST: I am a multi-disciplinary artist. I started out as a painter. I got a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and went into advertising soon after. Films and cartoons fascinate me because of the mystique of the moving image. I decided to try my hand at Toon Boom Studio after the first PC version came out, having tried Flash as a learning tool at the end of the 1990s. In addition to producing, directing and editing videos, I have taught art at the University of San Carlos, Silliman University and currently I teach animation and its allied courses at the University of Cebu. I am based in Cebu City, Philippines.

SPORK, done in Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and Harmony by Beata Lukasiewicz

NAME: Beata Lukasiewicz

TITLE: SPORK

DESCRIPTION: When a little plastic Spork is introduced to a new kitchen, he is rejected by the shiny metal cutlery and attacked by the big bullies, the sharp kitchen knives. The other misfits of the kitchen—a corkscrew, peeler, and cheesegrater—watch from a distance—but will they come to our hero’s rescue? Spork has been written to help individual team members with a development of their skills as animators, background artists, character designers and storytellers. It is a very simple story with very simple character design. Animators have been challenged to present characters emotion and attitudes without the use of hands or faces, as they has not been given to the characters.

Recently directed, wrote and produced her 3rd year graduate production titled ‘Spork’.
