Welcome to the UPSTART & RUMMAGE Blog

Here's where you can find all the up-to-date news about the film. I'll be updating regularly, so why not bookmark this page and keep having a peek now and again? If you'd like to comment on, or ask any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to email me on gray@globalanimation.co.uk It would be lovely to hear from you.

After moving away from the Market Harborough area, I've been busy re-settling and doing all the stuff you do when you move house, so the film has taken a bit of a hit and taken a back seat for a while. I'm back on it now though and I'm quite excited about how it's going. I took a huge decision to make some very big changes, so after 3 years working on it, quite a bit will have to be re-done.

The main thing is that I'm completely re-designing Rummage. He's been quite difficult to animate due to the way I designed him, he was very clunky and stiff looking and it also took forever to move the rig when animating. So I've now made him much more articulate which will improve his movement big time and the new rig will now accept motion capture files.

I still have quite a bit to do on Rummage to complete the task as it's very complicated, but I'll be adding new clips to the website as I progress. In the meantime here's a quick look at the new Rummage!....
