Aesop - Pursuits of Passion

A full campaign for Aesop skincare's gift range, celebrating famed historical naturalists. I undertook all aspects of character & environment animation across the campaign, which included Aesop's social media channels, 7 in situ animations on Aesop's online store and newsletter Gifs. An absolute joy to work on such a beautiful project for such a celebrated company.

The AFL "This is Greatness"

 

XYZ Studios invited me to direct this fantastic campaign for George Patterson Y&R to promote the AFL Grand Finals. This mammoth task consisted of 5x 30" TVCs produced in only 7 weeks. My role as director covered treatment, editing, post and animation, I also served as lead animator. In 2014 I was asked to return, and directed the AFL launch campaign for another year. Go Footy!

Working with the fine folks at 21-19, I animated these two clips for the larger Drinkwise campaign, with focus on character animation and camera movement.

Hamer Hall "Nautilus"

 

I was commissioned by the Arts Centre Melbourne to produce a piece for the relaunch of the iconic Hamer Hall. A unique project: featuring a 23:3 aspect ratio, no audio and a transient audience, it's theme followed the Hall's inspiration of the golden ratio and Nautilus shell. My treatment involved particle animation, projection mapping and filmed elements. The video includes a cut down of the animation in situ, and a short interview with myself conducted by the Arts Centre.
