Whilst working in China on the exchange program for a month I did a lot of pre-production work for the animation company “Glory & Dreams” and had an amazing time working with them and visiting the sights in Nanjing and Beijing!!! Due to copyright I can’t post up anything that I did for the company yet, but I was told by the director Thom to look at “Home On The Range” (2004) Will Finn, John Sanford. Doing so brought to my attention the amazing backgrounds that they have in the film, not one of Disney’s best, so I looked up and found David W. Cutler who did Production Design & Art Direction for the film and did some studies from his work. Working in China was the first time I had used Photoshop to paint with and also the tablet, it took a bit of getting used to but I was really pleased with the way these images turned out and really started enjoying using Photoshop to paint with!

With swapping the location of my short animation pitch from space to the Australian Outback I had to do some new research. The first images are scans from my parent’s photo albums, taken whilst they were travelling and also when we travelled round Oz for a year!
These next images are screenshots from the film that most inspired me to pitch my film "The Proposition" (2007) John Hillcoat
