My Work


I've just finished my latest "word brief" - it was a long time in the making, mostly because I wanted to learn new skills to incorporate. I modeled the microphone in Cinema 4D, and used sound effectors to generate movement in the tubes. I wanted to play around with thinking particles and dynamics as well, so although I could have have done it in a much simpler way, I generated the spirals coming out using TP - the original idea was much more complex and had more groups of particles, but it started to get a bit messy so I toned it back. the particles floating in front of the microphone were created with a cloner object with dynamics that collide with the tubes.

I used another technique to extract the audio in After Effects, which controlled the circle behind the mic. I then added several adjustment layers to alter the exposure, contrast and added an optical flare.

Self Promo (work in progress)

I thought I'd share the animation I'm currently working on, My approach to this was to create a CV-lite type animation that looked slick but remained fairly simple at it's core. Most of it is done with shape layers an after effects, but I thought I'd drop in the odd 3D asset when required.

The goal for this animation is to create something that hopefully people in the Motion Graphics community will like and share, and something that will explain to potential clients who I am and what I can do. Other info will include my level of experience, flexibility and my software skills.

I'll post the finish product shortly...
