Seal, Be My Friend!

Seal, Be My Friend! is a personal project I undertook over a week in July 2014, motivated by my fascination with narrative-led gameplay-light interactive experiences (such as Papers Please, Cart Life, and Gone Home). Inspired by a friend's anecdote about her futile attempts to befriend seals whilst sailing, Seal, Be My Friend! (vaguely) explores what such a situation might be like to experience, and the inevitable toll it must take on one's psyche. With this just being a first attempt at dipping my toe back into the treacherous seas of programming, and my first attempt at Unity development, it's very simple and, well, a little bit buggy. It's currently in a semi-playable state, as I believe it needs to be recompiled in the latest version of Unity - something that I don't currently have time to do! It does have multiple endings though, so that's something. DESIGN, CODING & ANIMATION George Whittaker AUDIO Freesound.org Play SBMF This game is not compatible with touch screen devices. It also requires you to have the Unity browser plugin installed.

Horrender!

Horrender! is a short film that was produced for an internal competition of sorts at TellyJuice, to create a striking and creative Christmas message to clients. And what better way to celebrate Christmas (or indeed, anything), than with a black and white horror short?

Media Week Awards: TOWIE & Surf

This video case study was produced in support of ITV's submission of The Only Way Is Essex and Surf's advertising campaign to the Media Week Awards 2013. The idea here was use the TOWIE-branded surf product as an item on a TV shopping channel (ITV just so happened to be about to launch The Store channel), and for star of the campaign, Joey Essex, to guest-present the segment and sing the praises of the campaign. However, the stars didn't align as Joey wasn't available, but we got the next best thing instead: a life-size Joey cardboard cut out. So with a few tweaks to the script the presenter would instead begrudgingly fill in for a 'particularly uncooperative' Joey, only to be informed at the end of the segment by his producers of his error. As luck would have it, these tweaks actually made it better!

Media Week Awards: X Factor & Samsung

This video case study was produced in support of ITV's submission of the X Factor and Samsung's advertising campaign to the Media Week Awards 2013. The concept was enjoyably surreal: Former X Factor contestant Rylan Clark is in the middle of making a video diary (like those seen in the show proper) with his Samsung Galaxy Tab when it bursts into life and, aided by a Samsung Galaxy phone, humorously fills Rylan in on the success of the campaign.

Racing UK: Grand National 2013 Promo

This 60-second broadcast promo (and 10-second sting) was created to promote Racing UK's coverage of the 2013 Grand National. The concept of the promo was to intercut historical footage of the race from over the years to give the impression of a seamless race through the ages, culminating in the closest ever finish to the race from 2012.

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.
