Three projects I absolutely adore, all found on http://www.thisiscolossal.com.
The first is a perfectly white room, attacked by thousands of kids with colourful stickers.
The second is a room with a massive helium balloon that can be bounced around, marking the wall with a number of pens sticking out from it.
The final one is a room of heights, where the audience gradually added their heights by scribbling on the wall.
It’s the interactive nature that makes me smile, and the emergence beauty of the whole thing.
I’ll try hard not to fill everything with proud father pics, but - introducing Huxley Thomas Efergan (Taken with Instagram)
Been attempting to kick start a game idea, this time in Unity. As with my last game idea its unlikely to ever see the real world (I tend to obsess about these things for a month of two and then move on), but is fun to do.
This game is a bit like the old Syndicate, a gang tactics top down thingy. So I’ve been playing in Unity trying to get some clever pathfinding working. And thanks to the resources available out there, and the generous community, things have been going ok. The only issue is the steep learning curve of C# and Unity all bundled into one.
Super-duper! Look what I managed to receive this week! (Taken with Instagram at Aardman Animation)

So… We’ve been making this little thing called Pirates. Well, when I saw ‘we’ I mean loads of other people that aren’t me, and when I say ‘little’ I mean the largest feature film production that Aardman has ever taken on.
It’s going to be epic. More epic than a massive epic thing, with extra epic that’s just contracted epic’acy. The promotion, with a load of the digital stuff having been made by the Aardman Digital team, is about to start rolling out, and I hope to god it works, because missing this film will be a tragedy… seriously, this is not just ‘home team pride’, this is a piece of british humour genius.
Here’s one of the first pieces (albeit with annoying advert at the beginning and american voice over)

New Years resolution - use my blog more, so how better to start than some bloody awesome T-Rex cakes made by the mighty Katie McQuinn-Roberts for Ben ‘the lover of dinosaurs in a non sexual way’ Reid.
