Shaun the Sheep Movie Ciaran O Connor
Luck was on my side and I was involved in animating, tracking and compositing elements for a trending/image sharing montage in the middle of the Shaun The Sheep Movie.
Frequent collaborator Gav Strange recommended I come aboard the project and it turned out to be a great idea on his part. Animation was straight forward enough, but tracking and colour space matching—not a chance. We ended up tracking frame by frame at some point and then rendering out image mattes for grading purposes.
When I first moved to Bristol from Dublin back in 2004, doing something like this for a company like this was simply a pipe dream, a completely distant, unrealistic ambition, so needless to say, I was excited/nervous as all hell to get involved with this.
