Being an avid fan of Microsoft’s products, in particular Windows 10, as soon as I saw the Microsoft surface brief in this years D&AD New Blood awards page. I was interested.
After looking at the brief, a few key pieces of information really struck me, which included “Microsoft and Microsoft Surface mean infinite possibility” “New ways to create, collaborate, and the power to achieve” “Immersive, emotive, magic” “Infinite creative possibilities”.
Taking these what I deciphered to be the main points of this brief on board, I started to generate multiple concepts along with researching into the ethos of Microsoft surface, of which I whittled down to this:
Showing off the power harnessed by the Microsoft Surface line of products whilst keeping an audience engaged.
The idea put simply was creating and showing traditional based media scenes and linking them all to the Microsoft Surface line, through a thread which was sparked by the idea of infinite creative possibilities amalgamated with there being threads in central processing units in all machines. And through this purveying that every form of traditional design, media and craftsmanship can be recreated using the powerful line of Microsoft Surface products.
The idea behind this project was to create an immersive, evoking, eyecatching and thoughtful piece of animation, and turn it into a multi faceted campaign, that works on multiple levels, on multiple platforms,
whether it be traditional TV advertisements or based on social media and digital billboards.

Facades was my response to my final major project for my BA Graphic Design & Animation at The University of Huddersfield.
Facades was an exploration into the facade and accompanied fickleness of our over reliance of technology and how within an instant this whole technologically advanced society could be turned on it’s head. leaving us with a dystopia.
Inspired by the spike of hacks & exploits crippling our current times, such as WannaCry, I wanted to explore futuristic implications of similar situations. Facades is set in a Utopia where everyone is ever more interconnected than we are now.

Whilst interning and then Freelancing at Territory Studio, I had the magnificent opportunity to work on Rupert Sanders: Ghost in the Shell.
My roles varied from working on initial concepts of 3D Holographs to working on received assets. Which entailed exporting received assets for use in Territory Studio's pipeline, colour grading received film footage to forward it to the VFX team, and working on holographic assets to push them forward to other designers.

Mr Robot 360 is a virtual reality project, which was created as promotional marketing material for season 2 of Mr Robot. Whilst working on this project I was part of a larger team at Territory Studio. I was tasked with creating multiple assets for this immersive experience which included billboards, data, data distortions, and mappable 2D and 3D assets.
Rich N Rude, an impressive and exciting new venture into the fashion industry.
I was contacted by the CEO's of Rich N Rude to capture content for their initial launch campaign.
This consisted of both a Promotional video and on set photography, to display the lifestyle and capture the essence of Rich n Rude's customer base.
The created content was used in both social media campaigns, along with being displayed on Rich N Rude's website.
Motion Cloning was a 360 VR fashion project I worked on whilst at Territory Studio.
Motion Cloning artistically explored 360 and editorial content for the fashion industry. Alongside the potential of 360 video as a tool for the fashion industry which is certainly getting more popular due to 360 support on multiple channels.
My Roles during this project entailed Rotoscoping and Compositing.
Shaks Specialist Cars set me a brief to create a short Instagram campaign along side onsite photography. To encourage dealer visits
The idea generated was to display the wide range of sports and exotic cars stored by Shaks Specialist Cars whilst capturing their new Premises and emphasising their slogan " living the dream, driving the dream."
2016's showreel, consisting of Motion Graphics, Cinematography, Client work and experimental pieces.
Fun render tests, consisting of objects contained within a set parameter and different environments. In this instance; Objects in singular "bio domes".
This was an experimentation of form, colour and render techniques.
