New Student Work

I'll start this off by some new Interactive Media student work; this is an After Effects animation created as an opening for a Documentary (By Clint Galea, Matthew Vella and Therese Briffa) More to come...
This is one more experiment I am conducting in After Effects using Inverted Water Colour and simple 3D layers...
Below is another manipulated water colour semi-abstract jelly fish for deep house record label battibatti
As you might have noticed I am currently in love with water colour. It can offer so much flexibility especially when digitised. On a side note, water colour was actually my least favourite medium to use when I was a student. I guess once you grasp the delicate nature of water colour (as my friend Ruth put it) you can start exploiting it in any way you like.

Principles of Editing

Here's a research project by an Extended Diploma in Creative Media Student, Christ Scicluna. The task was simply to create a vlog which includes Editing principles, purposes and history. Might post others soon, but this one caught my attention mostly because of the creative intro and the general structure of the vlog.

Graffiti Collab

Hey y'all, I know I promised a review (that I am still working on, since I got a lot to choose from specifically), however as you all know well by now *coughmoiracough* I've been having a lot of graffiti trips.

Here is the latest one done however; a collaboration with Iella (Daniela) and myself on a random wall. Done in Skatepark today.

Enjoy! (back to my assignments now...)

So you want to build a website?

Of course you do, everyone wants to make their own website, and if you already have it - you probably need to update it no? ;) I for one have designed multiple websites for my works but they always halt at the Photoshop stage. Hey one day I will have a website and it will be awesome, but before I do I will have to go over some links I have kept in my bookmark folder for inspiration and assistance; Have a look:

More updates

You'll find a new Blogroll on your right navigation; these are blogs by the BA Graphics students who have me as their tutor. I thought I'd share their developments as they are all doing some pretty interesting projects and it would be good to follow their literature reviews and evolution of their projects. In other news, we'll soon be getting a new author this time from the 1st year Interactive Media class :)
