BBCW The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

Designing a project for the Queen (kind of) can be a stressful experience, not least because failure could well see see your head end up on a pike. But with those irrational fears overcome, it was time to bring the events of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee to life in the form of a 60 second promo for BBC Worldwide's coverage, that could also be re-versioned as a 30 and three 15-second promos - and broadcast in over 140 countries. As the festivities were still several months away, I researched the details of the three-day celebration and the routes theĀ flotilla and carriage procession would be taking so that I could start to break them down visually, and amalgamate them into a sequence. The pop-up book motif was an excellent fit for these events, as it naturally invites pagination and transitions. The sequence was built and animated with the help of 3D animation wizard David Blair.

Guardian Open

The Guardian Open campaign was created to help reframe the celebrated newspaper in the hearts and minds of its staff and advertisers. Using a combination of 2D and 3D graphics, we created a beautiful sequence that takes viewers on a journey through The Guardian's plans for future growth across all of its platforms. The very-slick 3D intro and outro was designed and animated by Paul Clements, which I then built upon for the rest of the sequence, alongside two other animators.

One Night In Powder

One Night in Powder, a feature film produced by One Light Productions, is a 90-minute journey into the weird world of Kevin Powder, and his 30-day challenge to stage the most incredible night London has ever seen. I was enlisted to create the graphics for the film, and due to the film being shot on DSLR cameras, I also composited a number of shot 'fixes' to eliminate some nasty cases of aliasing that those cameras can be prone to producing. In all, the film's graphics requirements were wildly varied, and required an intense phase of rapid prototyping to establish the most fitting style for the elements, and the feasibility of some of the more challenging shots.

ITV Upfronts 2012

The ITV Upfronts is an annual event held by ITV to attract advertisers to their upcoming programmes, and I filmed a range of interviews with some of the broadcaster's biggest stars to feature in a number of reels that were being produced for the event. Filming these kinds of interviews requires that you can both work quickly and flexibly, as you rarely have much time (or room) with which to work. In some cases we were fortunate enough to have access to a studio set, but in others we would be filming in small back rooms which can be rather tricky to light. Stills of some of these interviews are pictured here, and have been graded in After Effects.

Racing UK Club

This 60-second broadcast promo was created to promote Racing UK's Club service, which offers a host of benefits to its members across the racing calendar. Through motion graphics and voice over, the promo details the benefits of the club, using the membership badge as the primary graphic device to tie the sequence together. I also later reversioned this promo with an updated badge design and membership details for broadcast in 2012 and 2013.
