I was delighted to be asked to produce the opening sequence for the Charlie Rose 'Oscars Special' show, which aired on PBS on 27th February 2014. The sequence features 8 Oscar nominated films with actors and directors that had previously appeared on the Charlie Rose show. The 1 minute sequence shows a series of custom animated illustrations and transitions from the film Gravity, Before Midnight, Blue Jasmine, 12 Years A Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street, Philomena and Nebraska.

Continuous Descent Operations (CDO) is an aircraft descent technique that reduces noise, fuel burn and emissions.
This Sustainable Aviation programme sponsored by NATS aims to improve Continuous Descent Operations across the UK by 5% to deliver over 30,000 individual quieter flights, save around 10,000 tonnes of CO2 and offer fuel savings worth c. £2M. This video highlights the benefits and encourages air traffic controllers and pilots to redouble effort to achieve CDO whenever possible.
