Animator : Doug Wilson

Animator : Doug Wilson“There’s been rather a lot to take in over one (HoBB) Weekend and it’s all very useful stuff” (Douglas Wilson)

When animation enthusiasts get together their world is one of positive ‘possibles’ as the constraints of live action have no place in their thoughts. When Doug Wilson checked out what was happening over an animated HoBBian Weekend, he was subjected to a key overview of the animation industry which left him wanting to discover all the ‘inbetweenies’.

Creating a hunger to explore is far better than telling it how it ‘was’, as things move on in the animation industry so fast that experts rarely manage to keep tabs on all areas.

For Doug Wilson, one concentrated weekend of animation study and chat about everything from Bolex cameras and Macromedia to ping pong ball suits for motion capture, crystallized his thoughts and illustrated where his potential in the animation industry might be best explored.

Doug’s University studies include practical work outs in the animation industry so let me know if your Production Company could do with a more than enthusiastic up and coming star of British Animation (Well that’s the publicist in me talking!)

If you are poised for a potential career decision, move, or are still at school – contact me – as I can give the benefit of a concentrated experience for you to help answer ‘would this suit me?’

Stanley, Paul. Author

Paul Stanley, Author First collection of poems “The Profound and the Profane” (ISBN No.: 1-899573-02-X)

Paul writes a heady mix of indulgent tease in his first published collection of poems, battling through blatant ‘Adult Poetry’ to delight the reader with his take on ‘Romantic Consumerism’.

Paul is obviously measuring life with every natural form he has. He documents a personal journey yet works as a word chef might to serve his readers emotional flavours they recognise well, albeit on a learning curve that he pens.

As a devotee of Concrete Poetry, (read Paul’s poem “Spider’s Leg”) his work often needs to appear online in ‘textual-image’ form because most default typographical settings alter the structure so important to all writers of Concrete Poetry. This again makes it harder to track down reference to his written works using search engines that don’t recognise the importance of gaps, rivers, spacing and gutter positioning through body text (A subject Paul studied at University)

Because Paul paints with words, his writings are aimed at the reader’s understanding of ‘image’ as well as tongue, regularly slicing through the set restricted ‘lines’ walked by many of the ‘now’ poets. At times when Paul needs to communicate beyond text lines, he designs, models and paints spectacular model characters  – a disturbing world of Halfling, Boffin, Took, Brandybuck, Grubb, Chubb, Burrows, Bolger, Bracegirdle, Brockhouse, Goodbody, Hornblower and Proudfoot. My personal fav. is this giant:

Those Earthlings curious to catch up with Paul’s first published collection of poems, including ‘The Kiss’, ‘Shelf Life’, ‘The Theory of Irrelatively’ and ‘The Night I Met a True Vegetarian’, should contact Paul via theBattleforge site or cautiously approach their nearest bookseller to order a copy of ‘The Profound and the Profane’ giving them the secret code number of ISBN: 1-899573-02-X.

And if you still can’t get your hands on a copy, contact me as I have a spare, mint condition, first edition 2002 [GBP 18.00 +pp]

Enjoy the Fire and Flames – experience Paul, his Goodbody Bolgers and all.

Grant.
