Bigger Picture

Tonight one of my older pieces of work, 'IGOR: The Unhappy Clown' was shown at the IMAX cinema in Bradford as the opening piece of a show reel before a 3D film about a journey into space. It was quite a revealing experience in many ways: 1) I didn't know that I would get nervous about it playing and be quite as shy as I was at hearing my own voice (Masquerading as a Eastern European) put through a cinema's PA and 2) Seeing your own work on the big screen is quite an unusual thing.

I have seen it on big televisions, small monitors, portable devices, MAC's, PC's and a whole range of stuff - I've even seen it projected before. But watching it up there on the big screen with over a hundred people watching was a surreal experience that I honestly did not expect to be happening for many, many moons to come. And even when it did happen (Because I'm confident it will) I expected to be frustrating the person sitting next to me by pointing out all of the inbetweens (That's where it will probably start) or the Key frames (Hopefully that is where it will lead) or scenes (*Closes eyes and prays*) that I have animated as they flick by at some predetermined number of FPS.

Anyway. It was awesome. Nuff said.
