1. ChildLine is a UK-based, confidential, free, 24-hour counseling service for children and young people under the age of 19. ChildLine deals with any issue that causes distress or concern, one of which is unfortunately sexual abuse. For this project, we were approached by YCN Studio in London to craft an animated piece that would help children who are considering contacting ChildLine feel comfortable about the process of speaking with a counselor about sexual abuse.

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the new reel.

    90% of this was made in the past 16 months, 2011-2012. Mostly done with After Effects, with a touch of Photoshop and Flash. All design, animation and direction in the reel by me. For more work, head over to bombsfall.com.

    Thanks to everyone who made the work and, by extension, my life possible- friends, colleagues, clients and inspirations. Couldn't do any of this without you. Here's to another good couple of years together.

    Music is one of my favorite songs: "Kid" by The Bouncing Souls, off the album Hopeless Romantic.
