1. The short film "The Me Bird" is a free interpretation of the homonym poem by Pablo Neruda. The inspiration in the strata stencil technique helps conceptualize the repetition of layers as the past of our movements and actions. The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom. A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer.

    I am the Pablo Bird,
    bird of a single feather,
    a flier in the clear shadow
    and obscure clarity,
    my wings are unseen,
    my ears resound
    when I walk among the trees
    or beneath the tombstones
    like an unlucky umbrella
    or a naked sword,
    stretched like a bow
    or round like a grape,
    I fly on and on not knowing,
    wounded in the dark night,
    who is waiting for me,
    who does not want my song,
    who desires my death,
    who will not know I'm arriving
    and will not come to subdue me,
    to bleed me, to twist me,
    or to kiss my clothes,
    torn by the shrieking wind.
    That's why I come and go,
    fly and don't fly but sing:
    I am the furious bird
    of the calm storm.
    – Pablo Neruda

  2. To This Day is a project based on a spoken word poem written by Shane Koyczan (http://www.shanekoyczan.com) called “To This Day”, to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual.

    Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. We can give them a starting point... A message that will have a far reaching and long lasting effect in confronting bullying.

    Animators and motion artists brought their unique styles to 20 second segments that will thread into one fluid voice.
    This collaborative volunteer effort demonstrates what a community of caring individuals are capable of when they come together.

  3. Official music video for Old Flame Alight.

    This is the result of 100 coloured umbrellas, 50-100 cold and wet call centre staff, 7 crew, 2 cameras and one 27M cherry picker over 3 days.

    With the use of tilt-shift photography, the story follows people's unique outlet to everyday life, whilst a clown left behind in the excitement, drastically tries to join the fun.

    All shot in and around Portsmouth. With many thanks to Portsmouth City Council
