An audio visual installation in association with Schwartz Flavour Shots, an innovative new
range of herb and spice blends locked in oil. What does flavour look like? How does it
sound? These are the questions that inspired herb and spice experts, Schwartz, to create
what they describe as a ‘Sonic Flavourscape'.
Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chilli
and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition.
Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high
speed, creates a surreal three dimensional sound scape.
The project bought together an eclectic collective of creative collaborators. DJ/Producer
MJ Cole was approached to translate the sensation of taste into a musical composition.
Film maker Chris Cairns and pyrotechnic designers, ‘Machine Shop’, then went to work
turning this sound into a physical scale.

To plan "Solstice" we storyboarded the entire short and created an animatic. This is a rough working version of the film with music and sound that we used to plan shots and timing and see how the story was playing out as a whole. We made a couple changes in the final product but for the most part this was what "Solstice" looked like before animation.
This minute-and-a-half fantasy western is a 2D animated passion project that the two of us crafted over our free nights and weekends for the past 2-3 months.
We both split the work 50/50 from background painting to rough animation to clean up and everything between, however Ed did the music and compositing and Lynn headed up the design. As of right now, this short is it, but hopefully one day we can expand on the world!

Beyond action sports-- with Valhalla's totally unique style and structure, we've recognized an opportunity to put a daring new spin on the ski film, exploding the boundaries of the genre, opening the eyes and melting the hearts of any story-loving soul. With hard-hitting ski and snowboard action complimenting a more narrative-driven approach than our past films, or perhaps any other ski movie before it, we follow one man's escape into the Northern woods, and his wild journey towards satisfaction, understanding, and love in some of the deepest snows on earth.
Weaving story and character with award-winning, face-melting backcountry ski and snowboard cinematography; Valhalla is a vivid explosion of color, character, snow, and nostalgic soul.

Cyclique est une installation composée d'une matrice de 256 ballons gonflés à l'hélium.
Les ballons équipés de LEDs sont les interprètes d'une composition musicale et lumineuse.
Se transformant en une sculpture cinétique aérienne de plus de 700m2, Cyclique évolue au gré du vent et transporte les spectateurs dans des paysages artificiels synesthésiques.
