A RICHARD DIXON PHOTO STORY

 

OUR LATEST SHOWCASE PRODUCTION....

UNDERSEA ACTION ADVENTURE WITH SEASTAR 5

 

SEASTAR 5 INVADERS FROM THE ABYSS.....Illustrated in Supermation Imagery.....and created using miniatures , stop motion photography techniques and photo CGI effects in an original story written and designed by visual storyteller Richard Dixon .

 

The production of twelve episodes in a photo story format was created to show the visual story possibilities if the story idea was developed into full production in animation , picture books or a film format .

 

Seastar 5 was made at my studio base in Lancashire , England over a six year period alongside my normal Toy Industry Advertising and Children's Publishing projects .

The production has now received over 103,000 viewers since the first completed episodes were released for public viewing in 2016 .

 

 

SEASTAR 5 is waiting for you if you are looking for a new idea or concept to develop further and take it forward into something for the future.....in fact its waiting for anyone who would like a challenge to progress the ideas I have created into the media world of entertainment .

 

If you require more information on this concept series or would like to talk with me about my creations please just email the studio at.....richarddixontoyp@btinternet.com......and I will be in touch with you......

A JOURNEY THROUGH MY CREATIVE WORK FROM 1989 TO THE PRESENT AND BEYOND..........

 

With any story ....a begining.....for me it started late in 1988 when I decided to take my work into a new direction .

Following nineteen years of photography covering Portraits , Weddings  and General Advertising work , I moved into the UK Toy Industry and Children's Comics .

This new direction for me over the next thirty years would use my creative talents and imagination across many areas of the Toy Industry , Children's Publishing Projects and across the web .

 

I have worked with many Companies over these years.....with big and small projects.....the list of the Companies and the Products are endless.....Kenner Toys - Bluebird Toys - Hasbro Toys - Mattel Toys - Marvel Comics - Panini Comics - Titan Comics - MGA Toys USA  - Toontastic Comics - Cartoon Network Comic - Warner Bros Looney Toons - GEMMA Cards - Pedigree Books  and many more......the best in the business have passed through my studios....

ACTION MAN - THE BRATZ - MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE - GI JOE ACTION FORCE - LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER - TRANSFORMERS - BUTT UGLY MARTIANS - POWER RANGERS - QUAKE 2 - MASK - MEGA FORCE - MANTA FORCE - MIGHTY MAX - BETTY SPAGHETTI - PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - SPIDERMAN - BATTLE OF THE PLANETS - DIGIMON - and my own productions have now been released to join them on the web....SEASTAR 5 - DAKOTA MARS - CY MECH ROBOT HUNTER 2400AD - SINBAD GOLD RAIDER HEROES - STARJET BLUES.........

 

I hope you enjoy looking through my work.......
