For those asking, I'm animating directly into the computer using a Wacom tablet. The animation program I'm using is TVPaint Animation 10 Pro. Super expensive so I use the school computers, but it's like the illegitimate love-child between Photoshop and Adobe After Effects without Flash's niggling tendencies to crash every ten minutes. That program is sex. <3

Voice Acting Auditions - CLOSED! + ANIMATIC!My gosh you guys are impatient, I still needed time to illustrate and compile the thing! You can now watch the animatic of all three auditions the voice actors sent in here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXozbLlDArA&lc=mSF_hHagrIh81PjKgfRddOOdr9c93KvV58EVRmMzUBY Enjoy!Voice Acting Auditions - CLOSED! + ANIMATIC!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now that my animation course has resumed I may as well update you all on the progress of my search for Voice Actors for the rolls of Louis, James, and Santiago for my upcoming film 'Honour Amongst Thieves':
Auditions are now closed, and three "finalists" have been selected as the voices for the characters. Congratulations to:
as Louis Despatis
as James Hunter
as Santiago de la Cruz
All three sent in terrific voice clips with very good quality, and I hadn't expected to find such suitable voices for all three characters, especially on such short notice for such a small production! Thank you all for spreading the word
Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?Let it never be said that Sak doesn't deliver!Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last Sunday I had a Skype meeting with Brendan Julian and Richard Johnston - the voices of Louis and James respectively from my upcoming animation - to discuss the finer points of Honour Amongst Thieves. As promised, I managed to record it and so without further ado, I present to you:
Honour Amongst Thieves
I was delighted to see the two of them got along so well, because their character interaction promises to be great this way. Unfortunately, Santiago's VA was unable to make it due to timezones, but perhaps sometime in future we'll be able to repeat this again plus one Spaniard!

It's sound-effect-less, music-less, and not cleaned up at all, but I will be uploading each scene as I complete them so that the voice actors can see how their work is coming together. Perhaps it's also interesting for people interested in some of the processes of animation, as well.

ADAM LAMBERT LIVE IN SINGAPOREI pride myself on being an "old soul" when it comes to music taste. As a kid I was raised on classical greats like Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, and the list goes on by my dad. My mom weaned my sister and I on goldies like ABBA, Bon Jovi, Rod Stewart, and Boney M. I listen to copious amounts of 70s and 80s bands that make me look like a bit of a dweeb to my classmates, ranging anywhere from Alice Cooper, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Joan Jett through to Adam Ant and Dead or Alive. As a result, I'm heavily biased against what I call the "mainstream crap on MTV".ADAM LAMBERT LIVE IN SINGAPORE3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Because I am a complete and total Glambert.
When I found out Adam Lambert was coming to Singapore March 8th I was both excited and conflicted, because I had already bought tickets to see Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin) live on the 21st this month as well. But I'm glad I caved into my te

And what's worse? There's three of them in total, not just one, zooming down the road towards the house right now.
I told Kelly to take them back to the airport and leave them where she found them. She wouldn't listen to me.

It was a great experience; I got the chance to work on multiple projects in the company, doing everything from technical drawings, character concepts, to storyboarding and illustrations. I was constantly challenged to produce faster and better work, including some digital and matte paintings, which I still struggle with immensely. By the end of the two months I was finally getting a handle on things, but alas, all good things must come to an end. I wish I could share some of my work with you, but I am sworn to confidentiality.
I made some good friends while I was there; the art director is a friend to the animation program leader at LASALLE, and he purposefully challenged me to start practicing digital painting. I was sat next to the senior storyboard and concept ar

While I will have internet access, it will be heavily limited, thus I might not be able to give out contest prizes in time. So, to remedy such a situation, I have decided to cut the deadline. I really, really don't want to do this, but I have no choice. I do not want to leave any winners waiting.

You Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told You ...... Where I was last night.You Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told You ...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So Sunday night my buddy from high school :iconmankeymunkey: invited me out to a pub his dad frequents here in Singapore called Bojangles. His dad's one of the lead organizers for Singtim - the Celtics supporters club over here - and he'd shanghaied Chris into service for the evening as unofficial cameraman. I'm not a sports fan, but I guess Chris wanted to kidnap someone so he wouldn't be completely alone, and given how I hadn't seen him in ages and still needed to exchange gifts who was I to say no?
Bojangles turned out to be an incredibly small bar about the size as my entire bedroom (yep, that small!) and there must have been nearly twenty people crammed in there by the end of the night all roaring with joy at the television as the Celtics won 3-1. I can now tick "staying up until the wee hours of the morning in a small pub watching sports with drunken Scottsmen" off my bucket-list, but that wasn't the real kicker of the evening!

I liked this entry, as well as all of their entries for being based in history, this one in particular struck me
Quote: "War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other"
This one was very simple in execution but hit the nail on the head
Quote: "We stopped checking for monsters when we realized they were inside us"
this was probably the most used quote, and there were plenty of amazing entries for it, but this one was my absolute favorite
CONGRATULATIONS! I will make a Journal tomorrow featuring all entrants, as well as the honorable mentio

Poem - Impressive WorldThere once was a game called Impressive TitlePoem - Impressive World3 years ago in Personal More Like This
IT stayed online for quite a long while
But the fun times had to end
as the hackers came in
and FeralHeart made IT go out of style.
There now was a member; Big Ban
Who thought up a very good plan
with his coding skills at the best
he decided to hack -- err I mean test
the files of IT while he can.
.. as for IT shutting down, understand?
A year or two have gone and past
Flametail wanting his IT dreams to last
But the people he hired
had surely backfired
and due to this, ITr had died really fast.
Bigban had his own IT dreams too
and being hired for ITr, guess what he'd do?
Since Flametail was so easy to trick
BigBan stole the source code very quick
And it was enough to make Ritza's nuts blue.
After a few months of lying low
BigBan decided " ITr had to go.."
So he worked day and night
making sure his server was right
and released I.W. so everyone can know.
ITR did not last very long
but BB was still in the wrong
The "hack" attacks from ITr was
