Norman McLaren here employs the principles normally used to put drawings or puppets into motion to animate live actors. The story is a parable about two people who come to blows over the possession of a flower.

"Flake & Flames - The Kustom Kulture Adventure" is an independent crowd funded documentary film about kustom kulture (everything from custom rides to tattoos, pin ups and rock & roll music). Jesper Bram and Dirk Behlau got in touch with me to work on the opening titles and lower thirds for the film. I gathered up a small team of crazy talented people to work on the project and this was the result. It was a big challenge to work under tight budget and deadlines but overall it was a fun ride! alepixel.tv

To introduce the nominees for ACM's Entertainer of the Year Award, Michelle Dougherty and team had to marry the best moments from the artists' concert footage and the tactile, warm design established by Ram. They achieved this with a clever template: setting up each of the artist's illustrated portraits by highlighting the process, and treating the footage so it feels integrated into the design. Congratulations to all the nominees!
