Like every nerd under the sun, I think space ships are awesome. I decided to build one recently as a basic modeling exercise, and then afterwards I created a simple scene for it to fly through. “Spaceship!”

I realised that I hadn't spent much time fooling around in After Effects recently, so I decided to quickly put together a motion graphics bumper for a bit of fun.

I’ve always liked the sterile look that you can get with computer graphics. More often than not we try and disguise this look by texturing, adding bump maps, wear and tear, etc, etc. For this shot I wanted to avoid any of those techniques. Everything here is uniform. Everything is clean.

A while ago I saw a video with a Snowman in a globe. I liked the idea, and for practice, I thought I would have a go at creating a similar scene for myself.

When chubby ninjas attack, the results are never fantastic. This was a very simple idea that I had, and it made me giggle, so I figured I'd make it. What better reason that that, right?

Corporate Video for Tristram Marine - I worked with my cameraman partner in crime on this a while back. It was a lot of fun to edit, and work on. The guys were great.

My 2015 reel. This focuses more on animation and motion graphics than previous years, which focused more heavily on editing. Please feel free to check out my website and my YouTube channel for further work samples.
