Inspired Media – Oct 22nd

Those that are regular watchers of this page will know my love of animation. This Thursday at Inspired media, Matt West will be talking about (and showing) his work. The following is the description from the Inspired Media site:

Matt West is a lead animator and production manager at Cartoon Network. He trained in traditional animation at Central Saint Martin’s, and has since worked extensively in Flash, animating on series for the BBC (Monkeydust, Charlie and Lola), Channel 4 (The Blue Dragon), Nickelodeon (Terrible Tim) and most recently Cartoon Network, where he was lead animator on Skatoony, a hit show mixing animation with live action. He won the BBC New Animation Award in 2002, and is the author of Making an Animated Film: A Practical Guide. Matt will be talking about the different ways Flash is used to make TV animation, and how it can be combined with Illustrator and After FX to produce different results.

Looks like a good evening. I hope to be showing a couple of features from Flash CS4 as well, but don’t worry, it won’t turn into a corporate demo or anything!

Register here, and if you have work you would like to show, bring along a CD/DVD/memory stick and we’ll play it to the audience through my Mac. See you there…
