Motion. Graphic. Design.
Recently completed work for Level Films debut feature doc ‘The Endless Winter’. Below are three animated stories that I directed and were co-written with Level Films, and an example of the photo animations that I produced for use throughout the film. The film screened on Channel 4 both as a feature and a three part mini series and picked up the award for Best British Surf Film at the London Surf Film Festival.
The character animations are by Michael Rokes and the sound design by Brian Moseley. The animated stories were narrated by Alex Richardson.
A handful of webisodes were produced in the run up to the film’s release, which include further examples of the photo animations I created. They can be viewed on the Endless Winter youtube channel here…
or you can find them on the Endless Winter blog along with further information about the film here…
Thanks to Mike for the character animations on these. Visit his blog here…
Below are a handful of excerpts from ‘How To Re-Establish A Vodka Empire’, which include samples of the visual effects sequences that I produced for the film. The film premiered at the 2011 London Film Festival and has since gone on to show in cinemas across the UK and at festivals globally.
The models featured in the sequences were made by Art Director Hilary Powell. The film was written and directed by Dan Edelstyn.
I posted further artwork from the film in an earlier post, click to view.
Produced for Optimistic Productions
Recently completed some animation work for an installation that forms part of the ‘View From The Crowd’ exhibition at Kensington Palace Museum. The show looks back at Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations that took place 1897. The installation, produced by New Angle Productions, uses animations projected onto an array of staggered sheets that catch the image. Audiences can move in amongst the sheets to immerse themselves in the re-created scenes of Victoria’s Jubilee parade.
I was responsible for illustrating silhouettes of characters taken from the original pamphlet for the parade, then animating them to march in front on large crowds. These were then projected onto the screens to form the installation.
A video of the installation can be found here.
New Angle specialise in content for museums – thanks to David Bickerstaff and Beverley Garrett whom I worked with to complete the project.
Freelance graphics work for ITV sport. Working with Alex Dinnin who heads up the department, they create titles/stings/openers et al for all the sports coverage on ITV, as well as work for Al Jazeera Sport.
Recently completed the opening title sequence for the feature film ‘Little Glory’. Set in Flint, Michigan, the film tells the story of teenager Shaun (Cameron Bright) who fights for the custody of his younger sister after both their parents die. We used the motif of Flint’s industrial decline to establish the broader context of the film, depicting Flint’s history from commercial powerhouse to an urban decay.
Produced for Zed Productions. We worked closely with John Engel at Leftfield Ventures, who produced the film. The European Premiere is scheduled for December 2011…
More freelance work for Blue-Zoo, working on the title sequences for the second series of Dave’s One Night Stand. Each episode sees a stand-up comedian perform in their home city and each title sequence had to reference the featured location. I worked on illustrating the cityscapes and updating the characters and text in Aftereffects.
