Animated Paper Projects

Mon, 25 Aug 2014

I’m back after our family holiday to France. We had a great time thanks πŸ™‚

Before we left I’d done a bit of work for Brother International and was checking online to see if it has gone live yet. It hadn’t but I did find this:


Brother International have a series of videos on their Creative Center YouTube page introduced by my poseable paper robot model and featuring, among others, many of the projects that I’ve done for them. They looks great, it is fantastic to see some of my projects professionally animated!
You can see the videos here, there are a few so have a good look round!



Keep checking back here, I’ll let you know when the new Brother Int. projects go live.

    Hi Rob! That must be

    Hi Rob! That must be incredible to see a character you've created come to life like that! I'm not sure, but I'll bet that they were computer 3D models rather than animated from stop motion cut paper models. I say that because of the look of the shading on the robot as he moves around in his desktop environment. And secondly, a paper model would tend to lose shape/volume, fall apart or at least show wear and tear during stop motion very quickly. He may not be entirely paper, but he's a really well done rendering.

    I’m sure you’re right Shelley, CGI for sure but it still looks great πŸ™‚ – RI

    Welcome back, Rob &Family, to

    Welcome back, Rob &Family, to the world of reality (or fantasy?) – the video clip is indeed fantastic – regardless it is paper or digital – because the root cause of this creative creation is, of course, Rob’s paper work (and other artists’ real work) – so it is just fabulous and very interesting. I bet you had many visitors on your website when you were gone and were perhaps waiting – I was one of them! Your hippo project is coming out very well. Thank you.
