Paul McCree (aka Turjan Starstone) has a somewhat eclectic creative background. At university he trained as a potter and glassblower, and he has also worked as a magazine cartoonist, a caricaturist, a pyrographer, a mold-maker and sculptor of metal and resin figurines, and most recently has branched out into the world of video-making and animation.
Prior to making the move to YouTube, the only video making he’d done was editing a cousin’s wedding video on VHS, and his animation experience was limited to one childhood attempt to make a plasticine figure walk across the screen using stop motion animation on an old Super 8 cine camera – so he was just as surprised as anyone when in 2017 he won a video making competition run by videogame developer Frontier Developments. Since then his “Turjan’s Travels” YouTube series has racked up over a quarter of a million views.
It was while making “Turjan’s Travels” that he was introduced to Character Creator and iClone by a couple of fellow videomakers, and immediately caught the digital animation bug. iClone is now at the heart of his creative workflow, serving as a way of bringing his ideas to life onscreen, as well as often also being the inspiration for those creative ideas in the first place.
” When introduced to Reallusion software I was immediately hooked – here was the exact toolset I needed to bring my characters to life onscreen! “
