RECENT WORK 2013
This video shows a collection of my most recent animated/VFX pieces (most are from work I have produced during my time as a VFX Generalist at Rock Paper Film: http://www.rockpaperfilm.co.uk/ )
I recently worked on creating a lot of the VFX elements for the promotional film announcing the first ever BFX Festival. BFX is a brand new, Bournemouth, festival designed to celebrate and promote the visual effects and animation industry, inspire the next wave of talent and share the latest knowledge. More information about the festival can be found here: http://www.bfxfestival.com/
FINAL DEGREE PROJECT
Filmed entirely on location in my kitchen, this is my final project for the NCCA. Everything (except the actual filming) created by me. Sorry about my bad acting and dodgy accent! Bagged myself a BA (Hons) First Class.
Made with: Maya, Nuke, Photoshop, ZBrush, Crazybump, XNormal and filmed on a Canon 550D.

ED HOOKS ANIMATION ASSIGNMENT
The assignment was to take a pre-rigged character (supplied by the NCCA) and animate it's emotion through body movement and camera work (no emphasis on facial or lip syncing).
Animated and rendered in Maya.
SONY MASTERCLASS PROJECT 2012
A Game environment masterclass set by Dave Fletcher (Senior Environment Artist at SONY Cambridge). The brief was to take a local landmark and turn it into a destroyed version of itself. I turned a local church into a fantasy ruin (I had been drinking lots of coffee and playing too much Skyrim during this time). I was chuffed to get a first for my efforts.
Made with: Maya, ZBrush, Photoshop, Crazybump, XNormal.
A 'Sneak' Walk Cycle using a rigged character provided by the NCCA:
Animated with Maya.
Head Animation and Skin Shading:
An animation of a head model made for my Major Project. Testing the animation capabilities and the skin shader and textures which I created for it.
Model made with Maya, ZBrush, XNormal and Photoshop. Animated and rendered in Maya.
Head Animation Blend Shapes Test:
The same head as above (without shaders or normal/displacement maps) testing some blendshapes I created for it.
Pirate Block Test:
Animating a character provided by the NCCA for a first year assignment.
Kitchen Green Screen Test:
Another little fun project at home. My first attempt at trying out green screen. Using a green blanket and a Canon HFR17 camcorder. I was amazed I got anything usable from this set-up but this is the result.
