You can now purchase the Official Soundtrack from Maker vs Marker on the iTunes website for the bargain price of $0.99!
I won’t be receiving any of the money made from this, all money from the track is going directly to Brian Sadler. So if you support what he does, or just generally find his music kick-ass like me then head over to the image below.
– This is an isolated track. It doesn’t include the SFX that I put in.
– This download is for recreational purposes only and is not permitted for commercial use.
– This link will lead you to the iTunes page, it isn’t a direct link to a free and immediate downloadable file.
– Support this talented musician!

Hello everyone! I thought I’d share with you a little screen shot I took near the end of completing ‘Maker vs Marker’.
It’s of the Sound Design I constructed (excluding the music in ‘Audio 9′ which was obviously Brian Sadler). For anyone interested you can compare the sound effects from the video with the timings shown in the screenshot.
I only use premiere pro to match audio to my videos. Also, no I don’t own a copy of Final Cut, but I’ve had no problems with what I use so far.

I recently had the pleasure of working for Channel 4 to create two short films. Both Animations were broadcast in April 2013. The links to watch will lead you to the video on the Channel 4′s website.
The first animation to TX was a short entitled ‘The Mouse Hiding Out In The Lions Hair’. Since this is such a large name and wouldn’t fit in my sub menu bar I had to shorten it on my site.
The backgrounds come and go changing with what Kate Tempest is saying animation mixed with live acton. For anyone who doesn’t know her work she is an English poet and spoken word artist. She speaks this poem quite fast so if English isn’t your mother language you may struggle to understand, and if you’re paying attention to the animation you’ll struggle to understand despite the language barrier!
Essentially it’s about a story of a wise old man giving a little wisdom to someone of a younger generation.
The second animation to TX was called ‘Works Perks’. This was another poetic piece written and spoken by Matt Harvey. It’s comical, fun and a little bit cheeky. Overall it was very enjoyable seeing it all come together and I’m really pleased with the final result. If I was to make you choose which one to watch first I would say check this one out. If you’re not familiar with Matt Harvey he is a British humourist and performance poet, and he does a good job in telling this particular poem.
The short itself is about a man who wants to get some sort of satisfaction from his everyday job as the title describes.
