I could write, draw or compose music to tell a story and show my creativity but animation is what calls out to me. I feel when I animate that I can tell any story I feel like telling and that this is the best way to share it with an audience.
What is the most important aspect of the Blob Corp. animations?
I focus on storyline much more now and believe that to be the most important factor. I do try and improve my animation skills during each animation but am more focused on the story, which is being told.
How important are the characters in the animations?
Very important, they feel like my children because I created them and are very protective of them. I have a weakness for not wanting to kill off any characters. My ultimate favourites are ‘Blob’ (Obviously), ‘Jiratchi’, ‘Monk’, ‘Fable’ and ‘Lenny’. Plus a hidden character called ‘Spectre’ who is soon to star in a big debut animation of his own!
Was the character ‘Blob’ designed so that animating would be easier?
When I first designed ‘Blob’ it was not because I thought he would be easy to animate it was because I wanted to create a non human character that was, cute and green (My favourite colour), he ended up being a blob because his bouncing ability opened up tons of story opportunities. I do realise he is easy to animate in terms of walking and jumping but that is why when he’s in a film, I put a lot of effort into other aspects of the animation.
What are the future goals for Blob Corp. Studios?
Well I will always release animations of my own under this name of studio but in terms of employment I will aim to get a job in an animation studio whilst working on my own animations in my free time. It would be a dread come true for Blob Corp. Studios to get enough funding to become it’s own animated film studio but this a dream that will probably not happen. However I will continue to animate and do my best with every animation I release and who knows, maybe fame will find Blob Corp. one day. Just maybe.

Also the animation 'The Crystal of Life' is well into production of scene 2 here's a screenshot:

'The Crystal of Life' is now taking off to a flying start entering the early stages of scene 2. The animation is heavily forest based (as the title would suggest) and therefore backgrounds require time to complete. This animation will definitely be longer than 'Blob and the Celestic Sisters' due to the dialogue involvement. That's not to say it will be better, but i'll give it a good try! Here's a screenshot of the lovable forest creature Kip:

(Monk and Jiratchi out for a walk perhaps?)
A personal aim within this animation is to continue to improve animation quality but also create more detailed and interesting backgrounds, something i feel, 'Blob and the Celestic Sisters' failed to do. More updates and new character introductions coming soon!

When two space creatures get sucked up by a black hole and seperated, it's up to Blob to help the sisters reunite and return home! A task filled with danger and complications!This animation features a spoof of the famous Ghibli film 'My Neighbour Totoro' to tribute this great film the beginning title sequence is similar to that of 'My Neighbour Totoro'. If you haven't watched this studio Ghibli film then you MUST! It is amazing!

A small project i did for a little freelance work experience, the animation is based on the popular show 'Avatar the Legend of Aang'. In this Umiko (Preferably Miko) and Shari test each others strength for a future fight to end it all. Animation is basic and a little stiff at times but overall pleased with the outcome ^_^
