Paper Cut Wreath Tutorial!!

Hello again!! I guess its that time when we start decorating our homes with seasonal trinkets, garlands, trees with ornaments etc etc

I always wanted to make my own wreath and decided to try making one out of paper!

Everyone thought it was real!!

It looked so good that I decided to make a tutorial showing how I created it, if you have an electronic paper cutter such as the silhouette cameo then this tutorial is perfect for you, and you can also cut the leaves etc by hand!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial and I look forward to seeing your creations!, please feel free to post them up on my art group here

This was my first ever VJ gig!!

This was my first ever VJ gig!! It was at the Astoria, Leicester Square in London for top reggae band Morgan Heritage!

You could say that I threw myself in at the deep end there! But I went on to mix live visuals for many other reggae bands after that. It was an amazing experience 😁

I decided to be come a VJ or Visual Jockey after seeing a concert performance given by the VJ’s as Yeast https://yeastculture.org/

They were mixing video clips in time to the music of Nitin Sawhney http://www.nitinsawhney.com/ I had never seen anything like it in my life.
I chatted to the VJs after the show and they offered to train me to become a VJ myself!!

Thus began a 10 year journey into all things live video, I performed at Apple UK private events, went on tour with jazz stars, played to thousands in Trafalgar Square etc etc
It was a wonderful time in my life.

Artist Video – Omar Puente

I’ve been sharing bits of my work over on Instagram as part of ‘Social October’
https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale

Including this video, which was commissioned by the legendary jazz saxophonist Courtney Pine and features his band member, violinist Omar Puente.
I filmed, directed and edited the video whilst the band were performing in London.

It was such a memorable experience and honor to work with such talented musicians!

New Paper Animation!! Running Horse….

Hello everyone!! I hope you are well?
I’ve been fairly busy prepping a few new projects and creating content for Social October, you can view this on my instagram here!

Over the weekend I decided to create a paper animation featuring a horse from one of Muybridge’s famous photography experiments!
I started by cutting the horse shapes using my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine

I then created a basic grid on card and lined up the images whilst filming them on my camcorder.
I then created the animation below in my editing software.
I hope you like it!

What did you do over the weekend, anything creative?
Please share your projects!!!
