SPEED DRAWING KICKS!

My current daft way of making a living…

Speed_Drawing_stillSpeed drawing involves me sitting under a camera and some hot lights, drawing for all I’m worth (who said ‘that’s not much…’) and having to get it right first time – because it’s fab, easy to watch, and incredibly low tech.

And if it wasn’t for the editing genius of a certain Alan Fenemore…

So people come along and spend about forty minutes telling me what their company does. I then reduce it in intelligence until I can understand it, and rewrite it to last about two minutes. I work on the assumption that if I get it, everyone will. Storyboards follow, so everyone knows how the masterpiece will end up – because there’s no going back…

Result? A nice little film which wins hearts with its simplicity. A certain broadcasting company has had some, so has a mighty co that makes detergents and that sort of thing, and subjects have included cosmetics, power drills, naughty smoking things, holiday homes and gorgeous swimming pools. These discerning and talented people, who are obviously on the cutting edge of industry and life generally, use the films on their websites, at presentations and on YouTube.

Good eh?

Watch this very quick little film – so short that even you won’t get bored.
