It’s often a good idea to create an animation prototype for any multimedia project that features complex interaction and navigation. This is one such project and I worked on it during my stint at Digitas.

It was envisaged that the site’s content would be laid out in 3D space and that the user would travel along lines connecting different sections. Upon arriving at a new location any further connections would spin out from a central hub. It was clear that a prototype would help convey the concept to the client.

To promote her single “Permission to Please” she hired Adrian Mewlett to direct and produce the accompanying music video. Knowing Adrian and cinematographer Colin Elves from my work on other music videos, I was brought on board as editor.

Most agencies produce a digital Christmas card each year. I worked alongside my cohorts Tim Foster, Oliver Soto and Brendan Mannion in producing the Digitas card.

The card features a simple game where the user has to squash as many of the annoying singing creatures as possible in the allotted time.

I created this video for on-set playback for an Ericsson shoot that took place in South Africa. The screens needed to show technical-looking read-outs and telemetry. I chose a clean, retro look reminiscent of the computer screens aboard the Discovery in 2001.

I really enjoy projects where I’m able to use all my skills. Glass Partnership hired me to direct and shoot several video pieces for the Hewitt Graduate website. I was also tasked with editing the videos and writing Flash video components to play them. The videos ranged from humorous interview-based ads to more abstract mood-pieces and video presentations.

Guardian Video Player

I freelanced for a short time at The Guardian re-writing the video player for the Guardian website. The project involved creating a Flash wrapper around a Brightcove player so that the designers would be able to brand and style it to match the surrounding website. It was a good experience to work at The Guardian because they effectively employ an agile software development methodology.
