Here's a preview of Factory Dogs Animatic

Hi all,

I've been busy editing the dialogue from the recordings last week into the Animatic. Its a lot of work but it will give me an idea on timings etc.

I start back at work tomorrow so things are going to be tough for the next few months. I am going to try my best to keep working on Factory Dogs but work is very full on. I'm working on a brant new premier called Ghost the Musical. So things will be very manic.

In the meantime, please check the website out and become a member, I am looking at adding a shop soon, with mugs/shirts of your favourite characters on to buy

Check the youtube channel out too

bye for now

Recording Dean Steers aka Big Dean

Another successful recording done with my good pal Deano, he does the voice of Big Dean. As you can tell the character was modelled on Deano. Dean is a great character, he brightens up any room he walks into with his smile and funny anecdotes. His voice is perfect for animated films. I'm so happy to have him as my best buddy.

Only one more recording to be done with Howard who plays Bernard. That's not going to happen for a few weeks so in the meantime I'm making a publicity photo for the film (in 3D)

The animatic looks great! I can see how the film will run now, thanks to the great voices and my hundreds of drawings I've done. I might even show you all a sneaky video of a scene with the voices in action

Here are the two Dean's smiling for the camera

Recording Mike Collins aka Frederick

Another recording finished today with Mike. He models his character on his dog Riley. When Riley was a puppy he was the funniest dog ever, he has loads of character! I just kept saying "imagine if Riley spoke, how would he say that line" Mike would do it and we all fell about laughing! It was a great recording session.

Here's Mike with Riley (oh, I mean Frederick)

I'm recording my bestest bud tomorrow, Dean. I can see a lot more laughs on it's way :-)

But for now, I'm chilling out watching the football and drinking some wine

Until tomorrow

Recording James Cockerill aka Oswald

Hi guys

Well today has been a very long day and I'm falling asleep as I type this. Earlier I recorded Norman's voice with Tom. This evening I had the pleasure of recording James Cockerill's voice. He plays the voice of Oswald. James has the perfect northern twang in his voice, Perfect for Oswald. He has the most dialogue so it was tiring towards the end. but we carried on and finished the recordings at 10:30pm. Well worth it!!!

That's 4 successful recordings done. Only another 3 to go! Now time for a beer and a film. I'm thinking Team America? :-)

Here's James and Oswald looking cool

Tonight I will be recording James Cockerill aka Oswald

But for now... Back to prep work before James turns up

Keep spreading the word guys :-)

Recording Pete Ness aka Dermot

Hi everyone

Today has been a long but enjoyable day! I have recorded all of Dermot's dialogue for Factory Dogs animatic. This was done with the very talented comedy actor Pete Ness. It took over 4 hours to record but it was all well worth it. Thanks Pete, you're a star!!!

Here's Pete chilling out with Dermot

Killer Corrie Star "Tricky Dicky" (Brian Capron) to voice a character in Factory Dogs

I am pleased to announce Brian Capron (Coronation Streets murderer Richard Hillman) recorded his voice last week for Factory Dogs. It was great to work with such a professional. He took 2 takes for each piece of dialogue.

Welcome aboard Brian!!!
