Naughty Princess is a short tale about a geeky young lad who builds a catapult to launch himself towards the princess in the tower. The story is set in a different time period but still reflects on a modern issue and is intended to be light hearted and fun while maintaining its impactful motive.
Produced as a Final Major Project at Bournemouth University (NCCA) 2016.

Showreel Pick of the Week
This week's Showreel Pick is from Jan Sladecko. Jan's work shows expert use of After Effects and Cinema 4D.
All shots are made with After Effects and Cinema4D. In couple of them is used x-particles, TFD and Octane.
My name is Jan Sladecko (alias Slejdy), I have over 6 years experience as a professional Motion Designer and VFX artist. I love motion design and my 2 years experience as a digital compositor on feature films means I can easily integrate motion graphics with live action shots. During my time as a freelance artist I have worked in broadcast TV shows, commercials, music videos and fulfilled the role of VFX supervisor on music video shoots.
I am always happy to be a part of new and interesting projects.
Thanks for watching!
