Welcome

Welcome!

Chantal-HarveyAre you looking for a short animated video for your website or project? Are you looking for something completely different as well as a professional product? Contact me.

As a publisher and artist, I have been working with Real Time Animation since 2007. Examples can be found HERE and under ‘machinima on this website.

My background lays in visual arts, Dutch television, and Real Time Animation’, known to its followers as ‘Machinima‘. Where as ‘Computer Generated Images’ is known to many as CGI, you will not find machinima used very much in main stream media.

So what is it? Well it is the art of using your computer as a film camera. With dedicated software, I direct and film in virtual sets, in game platforms and virtual worlds like Second Life or World of Warcraft. This way I produce cost-effective animated films, by manipulating computer  graphics.

A little like jumping inside your computer and directing animated characters, creating  your own film crew, with your own film studio. It is not as flexible as ‘CGI’ because the main frame mapping is preset, but it is so much more cost effective and a ton of fun.

You really are only limited by your own imagination and by how much you have mastered the concepts involved. Because the cost of machinima  production is so low compared to any other form of animation, there is a whole new market opening up, in education, children’s entertainment, art, multimedia, books and commercials.

Currently working on children’s picture books, using advanced animations. These educational and fun stories will introduce you to the Bobbekins, the BuddyBirds, the FairyOwl, and other little fantasy creatures that will capture the world and your heart!
