Seasons is a surreal motion graphics animation based on the changing seasons. Beginning with spring, the richly hued illustrations in this work come alive as they transform in color and rhythmic tempo to reveal the full seasonal spectrum.

A visual piece by Michael Zoidis & Jodie Southgate, exploring the hazy slow-building ambient piece 'a2' by Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm.
"For the video I cast my mind back to an old chemistry set I had when younger and experimented with some milk, food colour, vinegar and a macro lens to create a visual piece to accompany the music. The results were unexpected. I was rather pleased with some and I wanted to share them with you." - Michael Zoidis, director
"An ambient track that wraps itself around your synapses like balm as they've been dwindled by the unavoidable daily contact with Skrillex and PSY." - Noisey Video Premiere
This is an audio-reactive algorithmic visual art piece that uses the concept of charged particles and flocking to simulate a organism that is alive and composed of micro-organisms. The movement is rather pleasing thus I decided to exhibit the algorithm in a rather catchy video art fashion. Enjoy.

Resonance is a huge collaborative film produced by SR Partners in which 20 motion artists and studios and 12 sound designers explore the relationship between geometry and sound in 20 seconds.
Our 20 seconds for the piece, as well as the Director's Cut, were created following a flipped production process: they were animated first and then, by using the Pepakura software, each frame was printed and transformed into paper cutouts that were glued and painted, transformed into real frames that were then shot in our improved Lightbox in stopmotion, which was controlled by our new motion control system, Motion Guerrilla.
This twisted process ensured a fluid stopmotion animation designed beforehand and a supernatural atmosphere whose lighting and textures would have been very difficult to achieve by 3D software.
The final result has absolutely no post-production except for colour correction.
