I don’t usually post banner work because it’s not really my area of interest or expertise. That said, I recently worked on the animation side of a banner campaign for Activision promoting the release of DJ Hero 2. I’m pretty happy with the animation I produced, hence am sharing it here.

Read on to see the animation in action…

The final mission in the ‘Start Thinking Soldier’ campaign.

We open on the capture of an oil field by enemy insurgents. The mission’s objective is to regain control and restore power to the local population.

The mission begins with a crack team dropped by parachute under cover of darkness. Once assembled the team must cross enemy lines and assemble outside the insurgent stronghold. There, at the given signal, the team must mount the final assault.

The third mission in the campaign tests a user’s leadership skills.

We open on the aftermath of an earthquake. Local towns are threatened by rivers bursting their banks and survivors facing disease and starvation. It is the user’s mission to coordinate relief efforts and respond to rapidly changing scenarios, to save stranded flood victims in an Army boat and drive a battlefield ambulance to where it is needed most.

Mission #2 sets the user challenges that focus on decision-making.

We open on a tactical and strategic challenge where the objective is to accurately place mortar teams. The action then switches to the mortar fire controller, who must direct mortar fire before the enemy escape. The final stage of the mission sees fire teams splitting up and venturing through an enemy-held town to capture the enemy mortar commander.

The mission takes them from a time-critical IED search, a hunt through dark, claustrophobic tunnels to a final confrontation with an enemy helicopter.

Flora by Gucci

To mark the release of the new fragrance, ‘Flora’, Gucci hired acclaimed director Chris Cunningham to direct an advert, utilising his unique visual style. The online campaign was tasked with providing an interactive experience to match it.

The overall idea was to bring the ‘Grace Kelly pattern’ to life and use it to present the concept, history and features of the fragance.

The solution was to combine motion graphics with Flash. Each section required a unique series of animations and presented a different challenge.

A Barilla Day

Barilla have a mission to bring the wonders of Italian cuisine to the world. They have tasty products for every meal in the day, from breakfast to dinner. The “Barilla Day” begins with a family eating breakfast, before we head to Paris for lunch, finally travelling across the ocean to New York, where we find attractive 20-somethings having a dinner party.

We used a 2.5D animation technique, where high-resolution photography was broken into layers and reassembled in 3D space in After Effects. I worked alongside my old allies, Mike Rigley and Tim Foster, on this project.

Tri-Pentox

Sit-up Channels hired me to create some motion graphics for a TV advert. Tri-Pentox is an anti-aging and anti-wrinkle skincare product boasting the latest scientific research and advanced chemical agents. I used this as the basis for my design. My concept was to start a camera move at the subcutaneous level, where tri-pentox does its work and where we would see molecules in action, and then pull back to reveal the beautiful, smooth-skinned model.
