  2. This warm and witty spot showcases Dorset Cereals’ personality and links to nature, aiming to build on the emotional connection between consumers and the brand. Directed by Conor Finnegan, the ‘Life Begins at Breakfast’ message uses entertaining animal characters supporting the brand image to reinforce how important breakfast is to starting the day.

    The brief was to create a world where Mike, a bird DJ who works at Dorset AM, wakes the nation with his early morning radio show, Dawn Chorus. It was a tight enough schedule from initial go-ahead, with just two weeks for model/ character-maker, Jessica Dance, to create all 18 characters (each one lovingly crafted in 100% organic British lambs wool). Meanwhile, Andy Gent and his team were creating the miniature sets and props that make up the film. We had a two day shoot at Clapham Road studios where we shot all the puppets live-action on set, puppeteering them on sticks and creating walk-cycles with lumpy wheels. After the shoot it was back to Nexus HQ where we began adding all the 2D animated arms, legs, wings, eyes and 3D beaks, etc. It was lovely to see the film come together from initial designs to sets and characters being built to finally adding the VO and animation. Each step getting closer to the finished product.

    On 28th April 2014 I put on a Plasticine Rhythm workshop at 'Pick Me Up' at Sommerset House in London. At it attendees learned the principles of replacement stop motion and made a companion piece to my animated short Plasticine Rhythm. This is the result.

    Thanks to Pick Me Up (, Somerset House and Strange Beast ( for helping put on the workshop.

  4. An old film I was working on right before we decided to do Late Night Work Club

    the classical music I used rather heavy handedly in this video is Mendelssohn Symphony Number 4

    Most of this film was made in 2012, a few new bits added in 2014.

  5. It’s about a dark and odd friendship. This film was inspired by the death of my cat last year. I had a strong regret feeling after her death since I did not take care of her really well.
    My second year film at CalArts 2014.
