Was honoured to be invited along with other great animators, designers & studios to create an ident for this year’s Pause Fest in Melbourne. The theme was ‘connected’, and ideas were very loosely formed based on sketchbook doodles and some amazing early sound concepts from the very talented Wes Slover of Sono Sanctus. After trying out a lot of stuff, here’s what came out:
Airspace - Based on the theme of the creative community, as we travel through our differing ideas and inspiration together. Each interaction shapes and shifts the overall result, but the hope of creating something new and unique gives us reason to keep doing what we do. And of course who doesn’t like a levitating giant squid monster?
Best viewed in the dark with the headphones turned up loud.
Thanks to George, Caspian and the entire Pause Fest Crew for the opportunity, and thanks to Wesley for the incredible sound design. And extra thanks to Matt Westbrook for nuke assistance, fixing last minute render glitches

This tutorial is an update from my first tutorial. This time around I use Photoshop CC and delve into a few more techniques that I’ve learned while working in production.
Adobe Photoshop is a tool that a great number of creative minds are familiar and comfortable with. While it isnt software package that has been built with animation specifically in mind there it has huge potential as an animation tool. The ability to control an aesthetic within the software gives a very hands on feel to the process and endless possibilities for your end result. I hope that this tutorial will help bridge the gap between designer and animator, beginner and professional.

A quick overview and walkthrough of my PuppetTools 3.0 script for After Effects. It makes animating with the puppet tool much more pleasant. And this update includes a new Create IK feature.

I’m back in the freelance market so of course I had to cook up another reel. These projects represent work done within the past 5 years or so. Mostly current with a few oldie but goodies in there. Please share and enjoy :)
