CONCEIVE, DIRECT, EDIT, POST
Tell me what you need.
Maybe you just need an editor, or animator - and I am more than happy to step into that role. But sometimes you need someone to oversee a project from the start, and I can do that too.
I can help to: WRITE, PLAN, DIRECT, EDIT & FINISH videos - taking projects through all stages from their conception to their completion, whether live action, animation, motion graphics or infographic. I've prided myself on ensuring I work on a large range and variety of project types, and feel my strengths are in taking this experience and turning it to whatever projects - and problems - are thrown my way.
As a director I have created numerous music promos for artists, directing, editing and completing the post production on all of them, and in 2012 I was able to make my first short film, entitled 'PROTO' - about a cute little robot fella and his quest to become truly free. However I have also created animated infographics raising awareness of wealth inequality and water poverty. More can be seen in my Work section.
VFX and Post Production are a speciality, and I am more than happy to provide pre-production and on-set VFX supervision for all projects, ensuring that everything is put together correctly from the very start.
Let me know what you need.
Anything is possible.

MOTION GRAPHICS, ANIMATION
MOTION GRAPHICS & ANIMATION - 2D, illustrated animation, or 3D animation. Maybe you need an animated poster to promote your business on a video screen, or require scientifically accurate animated cutaways for a science-heavy piece. I will match the style you want, or create a new one.
INFOGRAPHICS - Sometimes numbers and statistics can be dry, or even a bit dull. Animated infographics can help put that information into context and connect the different elements in ways that make intuitive sense to the viewer.
IDENTS & LOGOS - Idents, stings and logos for use on adverts, TV shows and Corporate identities.
Whatever your requirement I can help bring it to screens large and small.
COMPUTER GENERATED IMAGERY
MODELLING & TEXTURING - Full scenes or individual elements. Either from original designs or to match real-life assets.
CHARACTER MODELLING, RIGGING, TEXTURING - Full characters, organic or robotic, animal or vegetable, ready to jump to life on the screen.
LOW POLY - Game-ready models, with attention given to polygon budgets and ready for use in Unity3D or other game engines. Fully textured with Diffuse, Specular, Normal, Illumination - or whatever maps you require.
ANIMATION - Whether a whole scene, small detail, or breathing life into a character.
LIGHTING, CAMERA & RENDERING - Time well spent, to ensure everything looks great.
COMPOSITING - Multi-pass rendering, brought together either with live action elements or as a fully animated piece.
POST PRODUCTION & VFX
GREEN SCREEN, KEYING, ROTOSCOPING - The staples of the VFX pipeline.
SET-EXTENSION - Extend a studio set into a skyscraper, or what have you.
DIGITAL MATTE PAINTINGS - Sky, mountain, futuristic city or medieval army encampment. Sometimes you need to 'add it in post'.
COMPOSITING - The combination of all your visual elements together into a wonderful, shiny whole.
VFX - The all-encompassing descriptor for those visual effect shots that add that special something to a piece. Whether it's tracking an actor's face onto a double, removing a limb, adding hologram signs to a futuristic city or making the cute piglet speak, there are ways and means to do almost anything.
Ask me what you need and I can help bring it to life - planning sequences, or individual shots. I have worked as VFX supervisor on set for many clients and can ensure that everything is captured and stored ready for post production.
GRADE, FINISH, DELIVER
After your shoot and your edit you then need to get your film or video from the computer and out to the world!
FIXING & CORRECTING SHOTS - Shaky shots, under and over exposed shots, boom pole in view, someone waving in the background. There are numerous ways your shots can be spoiled by unexpected events. Let me fix that.
GRADING - Colour and tone. It's important. It sets the mood and ties your visuals together. Different cameras, angles and times can produce different looks and I can bring those shots together into a cohesive whole.
TITLES, GRAPHICS & FINISHING - Animated titles, credits, name straps, and all those final visual elements and touches every video needs.
ENCODING & DELIVERY - Ensure your video is delivered at the highest quality possible, in the correct format, at the correct resolution, and to the spec you need it to be. Whether it's Youtube or Vimeo, TV or for presentations. DVD and BluRay authoring is also available.
