    A young girl living in a grey, monotonous, dystopian world daydreams herself into a colourful adventure under the ocean... * Selected for screening at The 2012 Student Film Festival London * 'Best Drawn Animation' - Canterbury Christ Church University Animation Show 2011 * Shortlisted for 'Best British Film' - Canterbury Anifest 2011 +++++ Created with a combination of Photoshop CS5 and After Effects CS5. I was aiming at developing a style of digital animation for myself that still looked fluid and organic. Inspired by the fact that I almost always end up daydreaming about something or other when using public transport. Believe me though when I say as a Londoner - the Tube isn't really this bad, I promise! ;) Comments and constructive criticism are more than welcome! I'm always looking to improve my skills. Finally - the greatest of thanks to Sophie and Patrick for their work on the sound and music, and to my wonderful friends and family for all of their support, without whom I'd have probably lost what little sanity I have. :)

      This is an extract of a larger video that I assisted in the making of during a period working freelance at Bokeh Creative LTD. The brief was to create a video that showcased the new packaging designs that design agency The Partners had created for the telecommunication company Vodafone. I built the 3D boxes in After Effects and animated the text and spins of the boxes, as well as timing the animation to the beat of the music supplied by the agency.

        An extract from a road safety film created by Pixelform Studios Community Filmmaking. The idea behind this was to use a combination of live action and animation to create an engaging and educational road safety film for children and parents in the local community. The animation was a mixture of drawings and paintings made by primary school children and bold, bright vector images created by myself. Created with After Effects and Illustrator.

          So I was finally able to buy the Adobe CS5.5 Production Suite, which means I'm able to play properly around with After Effects! It's not perfect, but for just getting to grips with the programme it was a useful little project to have a go with. For this clip, I followed this tutorial over on Video Copilot: http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/glass_orbs/ Any tips and tricks you could share so I can learn how to tighten things up would be much appreciated!

                This is an extract of a larger presentational video that I assisted in the making of during a period working freelance at Bokeh Creative LTD. The brief was to create a video that explained aspects of the annual company financial report to the directors and partners of The Prudential. I created the transitional wipes of the lines and the reveals of the photographs, which also had a zoom effect added for a more dynamic looking presentation.

                  With Under The Surface having been received so warmly by so many people (thank you!) I thought it might be fun to show my original rough idea! The images in this are from my original storyboarding/scripting work. In my own personal projects, I'm much more of a visual thinker, so I have a tendency to script out my stories in mini-storyboard form. You'll see that, in comparison to the finished film, Under The Surface was originally a lot longer. The original concept involved the character moving through worlds that represented the four elements; for example, the desert = fire, the ocean = water. It proved to be an overly ambitious project, but I hope to perhaps use the abandoned sections for a future piece of work! For the final project, I ended up using just the water world because I thought, of the four separate worlds, it had the most to offer visually at the time of making the film. No sound, unfortunately. The original placeholder track that I inserted over it when showing it in class was 'Define Dancing', from the soundtrack of Pixar's 'Wall-E', but I felt it was unfair to use a copyrighted piece of material for this... I'd be very interested in your thoughts, if you have any! And I'm aiming to have some fresh new work available to watch soon!
