"White Lion" Visual effects

Realsitic crocodile for the feature film "White Lion" (released 2010)
I was the animator for these shots.

"70 times 7"

A competition held by a local computer graphic society (formally www.solidpda.co.za ~ now www.animationsa.org) It was a 2d challenge & the theme was 'Winds of change' My matte painting took home first prize~ an Intuos 3 wacom tablet!!! (yay!)

I was asked to write a synopsis for this piece for a mag so I will cheat with a CTRL C, CTRL V - "Africa is on an epic journey, releasing herself from her tumultuous past & transcending into her illuminated, yet uncertain future. I didn't consciously intend the multivalent allegory to this piece as I believe one should 'play' with a concept first & then on completion try to understand the act of creativity/ analyse the result but when one links the biblical reference to the 7 cattle perhaps the deeper meaning was a part of the artists' subconscious intentions. (Matthew 18:21-22 refers to how much one should forgive- "...70 times 7") It gives Africa a way forward -forgiveness."

Welding

This piece was actually a row of baby cribs ... as if in a incubator with the uv light above. It had 9 cribs in a row... with clay sculptures of a mattress, a pillow & a blanket in each. From one bed to the next the bed slowly came disorganized until the last bed had nothing but a crying baby. This piece was meant to express the vulnerability of the Down's Baby at birth.

This piece was done under the same theme ~ test tubes surrounded a uv light in the centre... the entire central 'cylinder' could be removed from the outside cylinder.
