• ‘Bulmers 100% Irish Cider’

    60 second and 30 second spots were finished on Flame at Smoke and Mirrors for the wonderfully brilliant Lucky Generals. It rolled out on St Patrick’s across TV, social and digital. There was product beauty work and of course the motion graphic treatment. I always enjoy working with The Lads.

  • ‘Corona Can’

    Working with two great Nuke Artists we combined on sky replacements, CGI compositing, clean up and beauty work. Two particular shots were particularly fun to work on in Flame; stopping it rain in shot two and combining multiple live action plates for the beach bar wide. Quality series of films for Corona. Loved it.

  • ‘Corona Golden Hour’

    Flame and Nuke combined to deliver this gorgeous film, the lead commercial in the series. The sky replacements were critical to tell the story of that magical golden hour. Product beauty work was also completed. A brilliant spot.

  • ‘Pot Noodle’

    Going viral in time for Trump’s inauguration this great spoof was fun to put together. It won Ad of the Day in The Drum, with Campaign Magazine saying “Using satire to demonstrate the power of social media and its influence at a particularly tumultuous time for politics seems almost commendable.”

  • ‘MTV’

    I loved this series of ‘Brand Showcase’ films for MTV UK showcasing a number of contemporary artists. It touched on many disciplines within the Flame Premium. Paul and I designed the whole series and it was all composited in Flame. Initially I spent some time in Lustre grading the two ‘looks’. Additional scenery and interest was then composited in the black and white scenes. Extensive beauty work across all the talent followed. Large amounts of rotoscoping and keying was needed to extract talent and place them in the desired sets, complete with carefully selected and designed back plates drawing on inspiration and lyrics from the artists.

    ‘Ferrari World’

    Working closely with the creatives from storyboard stage I managed and completed the Post Production for a number of films for Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. During the early stages of the production I was able to advise and supervise key elements for visual effects. Initially as a Producer I co-ordinated all the offline, telecine and managed all the data and selects for Post Production. I then ran the Post Production across numerous Smoke, Flame AE and Maya suites, completing all the Flame work myself. From concept through to final delivery I was able to lead the Post Production for these modules. These frames are from approval Stages and rehearsals.

  • ‘Ferrari Finale’

    This amazing component of the Ferrari world installation was a massive 25 foot wide projected film of the moment the super car leaves the production arena and exits onto the race track at Maranello. The viewer is transported alongside the car, the scale and sound design consuming the visitor. This was shot on Vistavision for optimum width. There was extensive beauty work, clean up as well as the compositing of the workers and managers in the opening few seconds.

  • ‘Shadows’

    This lovely installation piece was one element of a fantastic visitor experience at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. This film was projected onto large screens using HD projectors whilst the viewer was transported through the exhibit. The glass screens were offset in the space to create depth. Beautiful.

    ‘Body Assembly’

    As part of the series of films for the Ferrari museum this illustrated the assembly process of the car projected on the dome on the roof of the vast museum in Abu Dhabi. It was very complex and had to be adapted to work in the curvature of the dome. Here are a few visual effects stills that touch on some of the compositing that I completed.

    ‘Final Assembly’

    This was a series of six films projected on massive tall portrait shaped screens that the viewer travelled slowly through. Each film, beautifully graded, told a short story of each of the teams that complete a final inspection of the cars at the end of the production stage. On Flame I managed the beauty work, composition and delivery of the films for the bespoke space.
