From the Archives: LiveWires

From the archives. I did my animation degree (1995-8) just as computers were starting to take over from paper and cel, and this project illustrates that pretty well. Basically a motion graphics job (with some character animation) for Newcastle's Discovery Museum, the bried was to tke the existing logo for their LiveWires educational installation and create a few animated loops. I didn't have the computer skills so I drew it all on paper, plus a lot of literal cutting and pasting, then scanned the drawings and finished them in Photoshop. (This video is made from more recent photos of the original art, so you can still see all the creases and imperfections.) I wonder if there's a potential market for retro analogue work like this? I stilll have the lightbox!
