Made this animated piece about music and imagination for Thursdays at Seven, a long running Auckland concert series. The video was featured as a part of the concert. It was great fun watching it with an audience and seeing people respond to the video.

LAB - Starry Eyes

05/11/17

Recently we wolfed out and made this wolf-centric  music video for a fantastic band called LAB.

Charcoal drawings, silhouetted Illustrator artwork, alpha mattes, and a bit of turbulent displacement in After Effects gave this video it's unique look. For those of you who don't understand technical jargon, here is a wolf joke to make your time reading this worthwhile.

Where does a wolf sit in a movie theatre?

Anywhere it wants.

08/06/17 Captain's log:

This was an exciting video to make! Lovingly drawn in charcoal by Monique, 'Ash' is the story of a man who dedicates his life to the noble pursuit of burning logs and collecting the resulting ash. I wrote this piece whilst bored out of my mind at my old work, a job which I have now stopped doing (hooray).

Really love what Monique brought to this project drawing-wise and I finally got to use my soothing vocal tones for the narration.

The Game of Life

08/06/17 Captain's log.

Life is inherently ridiculous and so is this video. The Game of Life is inspired by 8-bit games, with catchy music and extremely limited options.

Doom

07/05/17 Captain's log.

For our first project I wrote a lyrical piece about the ever-present threat of doom. It's everywhere and it will get you... and that's exactly the sort of message we need to be thinking about at all times. Enjoy... if that is an option.
