Below is a blog/timeline of the cartoons and characters I am working on today. I am slowly trying to improve on my drawing and animation skills. Hopefully you will notice an improvement as each Spicky valley episode or Spotlight video comes out. This is what I will end up doing more of, due to copyright restriction with voiceovers. I hope to work with an animation team in future to push this concept forwards. I and going to blog below the progress with the character concept.
I do the voices for all the characters. Some of the voices I have been using for years in the Voiceover section for movies, but I have now put a name to them. Click each character for an intro and scroll down for the cartoons
Spotlight 1 :SPICKY VALLEY CARTOON - EPISODE 1 - THE CAR JOURNEY
The first video where I put them all together. The quality of the animation is poor but hopefully you will see where I am going with it. I aim to improve with each one. I dream that this will one day be looked back like the first Simpsons……It could happen……….
Spotlight 2: THE TRECCO BOY RAP SONG
The second video where I put them all together. This is by far the longest piece of work I have ever worked on. Song started on a stream and was changed completely 3 times. As its all original minus the odd little prop like a shovel and that, it allowed me to put it on Spotify. You can now listen to it there.
Spotlight 3: Spicky Valley Episode 2
Collab with David Sidoli- Ben and Sid go on 2 trips. Animation another step forward here with Benjamin Llewellyn and Sid the main stars in this alien abduction.
Spotlight 4: Spicky Valley Episode 3
Slight animation improvements, with moving limbs and eyes. In this episode Jimmy Savile goes to Spicky Valley after getting suspended by BBSEASIDE TV.
