Chunk Bites #07

There’s something a bit special about a ladies only event, there’s a warmth in the room that you don’t get from mixed meetups, it feels like you’re part of a special club where everyone is supportive and genuinely listens to what you’re saying. It’s a much more relaxing atmosphere.

I was delighted to be invited to 
PoP’s launch event by a lovely friend who’s on the PoP (Power of Post) team.  I’ve not attended many events without Riley and found that while nervous initially, I soon felt welcomed and met so many creative ladies. I was delighted to hear about their roles and their lives, things they were juggling, things they managed and their hopes for the future of the industry. 

A broader group too than the usual animation and motion design meetups I usually attend, I met ladies who work on VFX projects, do sound design, edit, grade and so much more, it was wonderful to get a glimpse into the fantastic things we’re all creating. I’m greatly looking forward to future events and recommend all creative ladies check out PoP – I’ll see you there 🙂

Caitylee has a great eye for colour and I have a particular fondness for this lovely illustration she created – the hair in particular has beautiful waves.

A Colour Palette:

Today’s palette is inspired by matteyyy_ on instagram.  Check out his gorgeous post below. It feels like an inner city school basketball court in beautifully transformed America. Not sure why that’s just my immediate vibe.

Taking a leaf out of the BluBlu:

This project is simultaneously simple yet so detailed at the same time, I love the side scrolling format and the character animation is quite lovely. Fantastic parallax – I imagine it would have taken quite some time to set up. The script itself is interesting – the introduction of the brand comes quite a bit later than you’d normally aim for however it wasn’t much of an issue as I was genuinely interested in the list of problems they introduced in the beginning. A beautiful style and colour scheme – check out the project and the creators on Behance

Current Chunk Tunes:

‘You can use my skin to bury secrets in’ – I’m a sucker for the quiet whisper of a lady’s voice telling her she’s my crowbar. Grab a blanket and a warm beverage and settle into this song, ‘I Know’ King Princess and Fiona Apple
