Short Films and Animation
A collection of the animations and short films that I have produced as a freelance artist and CG animation student.
The Life Cycle of a Mushroom
Spectacular Science was a collaborative project between the University for the Creative Arts & the University of Kent which aimed to provide a wide audience with access to scientific knowledge and support the education of students in science subjects. The final animation was inspired by1920's animation such as the Silly Symphonies series and other early Walt Disney shorts.
A sequence of enigmatic dioramas set in the English countryside, "Owl" is a unique mixed-media creation. Blending CG visuals, infrared film photos, and marker pen sketches. This animation represents a collaborative effort between myself and Collectress, a UK-based musical quartet, resulting in an intriguing artistic synthesis.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
An 8 Minute adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. Major Project at UCA Rochester as a student of CG Arts and Animation.
LV21: Projection Mapping
For my MA degree's culmination at UCA Rochester, I conceived a projection mapping installation aboard LV21, a retired lightship stationed at Gillingham Pier, UK. In collaboration with the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend, I integrated Morse code messages into animations, creatively intersecting visual art with radio communication education.
La Création du monde
Over a period of ten consecutive week days, the students, staff & alumni of Ba Hons CG Arts & Animation were challenged to produce abstract digital paintings in synesthetic response to segments of music to be performed by the Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne. The participants were asked to listen to a musical extract and then respond to it visually through the creation of original digital paintings in Photoshop. The animation was derived from these paintings and created using Autodesk Maya and After Effects.
Channeling the experimental spirit of filmmakers like Marie Menken, I sought to evoke sensation and motion without rigid narrative or theme. Film's raw immediacy has always interested me, leading me to embrace unpredictability even in modern software. This animation's lights and camera effects were semi-randomly generated. I marveled at the peculiar beauty captured, naming this animation in Menken's honor.
The Garden of Earthly Delights
A CG rendition of Hieronymus Bosch’s ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ produced as a student project while studying CG Arts and Animation at UCA Rochester.
