Revelations, Bare and The Demon Within. are the short films of mine which have screened at international film festivals world-wide. I'm responsible for writing, directing and animating all of them (with a great team around me for each.) Sources and Impacts of Marine Litter was an animation commission that gained invites to a number of film-festivals after it went viral on the Marlisco website.
The Lockers Series
For Your Eyes Only and Just For Fun are 2 pieces that are intended to be part of a wider series called Lockers that raises awareness amongst teens of issues relating to cyber bullying and cyber safety.
I was employed by Looks Loud Productions as a director and animator for these two pieces and we were commissioned by PDST Technology in Education for their Webwise programme.
Both pieces are mixed media - incorporating live action and animation. We wanted to give each locker a different feel that corresponds to the character's personalities. Just For Fun plays with the notion of peer pressure leading the boyfriend into a stupid mistake while For Your Eyes Only follows the impact that the sext going viral has on the girlfriend.
I was really glad to once again work with a great team of talented actors, writers, musicians & crew - too many to mention here but definitely - check the credits.
Claudia Schwab is a really talented violinist and composer and it was great fun to work on her music video. The aim was to bring her album cover to life in a musical journey. The great drawings were provided by Lisa Cannon and the video of Claudia playing was shot by Mark Power.
The animation was created using a mix of Anime Studio Pro and Motion 5.
Claudia's album is called Amber Sands and can be found on www.claudiaschwab.com
I was commissioned by Looks Loud Productions to do the opening animation for this short documentary piece. The opening was created in a storybook paper cut out style to match with the story-telling narrative.
The black and white drawings were created by the multi-talented, Mick McDonnell.
