2015 Pixels   PTV - Regional Rail  

Working with Director John, design by Luke, lead artists Al and Trent, I animated the unfolding like origami paper city of Geelong in the Public Transport of Victoria - Regional Rail TVC with Pixels.

2013 Room3   End The Cycle  

Under the direction of Creative Director Erin Johnson, I assisted in storyboarding before creating 3D assets and animation for the End the Cycle promo video for production company Room3. The various rendered plates were integrated with motion graphics and animation created by Steve Edwards. Directors: AJ Clifford & Riima Daher.

2011 Maxo Studios   Eff Juice  

The process began with developing a design for the Eff robot character and adding animation ideas to the script supplied by clients Cummins Ross. Under a tight deadline I created all assets and animation within 3DS Max and assembled the sequences together using After Effects.

2013 Maxo Studios   Target Toys  

With a little more time on the clock this year but the shot count doubling comparatively between the campaigns, I re-teamed with Stephen Johnson to create the Target Toys 2013 Commercials. I modelled low and high poly versions of the Toys in 3DS Max. Some of the toys were rigged and animated before being integrated into the scenes with a handy plugin called Supermesher. I spent some time adjusting the lighting in the scenes using a daylight system which was rendered with Mental Ray. I composited the live action and CG plates together in After Effects.

2010 Zero One Animation   Megamind Game FMV  

Joining the talented Zero One team lead by Brad May and Directed by Dan Hartney I was responsible for assisting in technically preparing Dreamworks film assets and THQ game assets for animation. This included rigging characters, skinning and setting up facial animation systems. I created the "Picture In Picture" animations for the Wii game which involved creating 9 expressive animations for Megamind's Robot Fish sidekick Minion.

2010 Maxo Studios   Funtastic Toys TVC  

Funtastic Toys was a fun TVC which involved a live action shoot with Maxo Studios Director Stephen Johnson. Working from storyboards created by client Cummins Nitro, I lead the post production and created all CG elements with assistance by Tom Marley working on material shaders and lighting. I enjoyed designing the Teleport Device and integrating the live action plates with full CG environments and FX.

2013 Airbag Productions   Chery QQ  

Working with Directors Travis and Nick of Airbag Productions, I animated the playful Assembly Robots for the international Chery QQ commercial. Post Production TD: Adrian Oostergetel.

2006 Maxo Studios   Crown Casino FMV  

Crown Casino's "Pontoon Pandemonium" game set needed a new direction so with the Flickpad team, designed the Mr Chip character. I scripted the game mechanic and lead the production on 3 Mr Chip game themes at Maxo Studios; Aussie Rules Football, Summer Games and Horse racing. The process began with script writting, storyboarding, animatics and then progressed into a full CG production.

2007 Triple J, Pixel Freaks   Hungry for new music  

Feeling inspired I entered a Triple J competition called "Pixel Freaks". I nutted out a script and storyboards then teamed up with Photographer David Rosendale and planned the production. The production involved a live action shoot at a Laundry in St Kilda and later a studio shot to capture actor Nick Walker's performance which was keyed and composited together with CG plates. Up against the clock, I rushed through the post production with help from Adam White in editing and Peter Leary in finding a rigging solution for the monsters tentacles. The video made the finals and was awarded 2nd place. Later I returned to the project and gave it the extra time and finesse I didn't achieve in the original week of production. I modelled, rigged and animated all CG elements using 3DS Max and composited the plates together in After Effects. Big thanks to Tim Trappet for creating the soundtrack and all involved on the project who gave up their time to help create the video.

2009 Maxo Studios   Kmart Monster TVC  

I joined the Flickpad team and assisted on a number of Kmart Monster TVC's with Dan Hartney and Peter Leary before inheriting the fluffy red monster at Maxo Studios. Working closely with Cummins Nitro I lead the production assisted by Liam Thorne on numerous Kmart Monster campaigns including Kmart Artist, Safari, Skydiving and Easter TVC's. Each of the projects also had a major print component for the Kmart catalogue.

2011 Maxo Studios   Coles TVC  

Working from the Coles "Prices are down" red hand illustration I created a neon-light version to sit above the stores entrance in the commercials finale. The 3D model was tracked onto the live action plate with a few minor cosmetic enhancements being the night sky and twinkling stars.

2012 Sodaland Films   Lincraft  

Working with a concept by Sodaland Films Director Judd Hyland I modelled and animated a new 3D mascot for Lincraft Australia.
