I did the VFX for this forthcoming feature from my colleagues at Imotion. To avoid spoilers, here’s a breakdown of just one particular shot which involved a few elements. The film will be finished soon and should then be doing the festivals circuit – here’s the trailer.
I’ve done quite a few animations using Airbnb’s Lottie technology, enabling smooth animated vector graphics with tiny file sizes. Here’s a sample of my Lottie animation work.
I created this Lottie animation for UK energy company, Octopus Energy. It was part of a prototype onboarding user flow for a new service launching this year.
The Lottie animation below is an animated logo I created for an upcoming dating app (just 18k file size).
Some more of my Lottie work examples:
I recently completed a large video production project for University of London, involving taking many of their universities’ courses online. The project involved taking raw (sometimes low-quality phone-filmed) footage of tutors delivering lectures, keying the footage, cleaning up audio, adding graphics and branding, etc.
The huge amounts of assets and people involved means the project needed a reliable mechanism of sharing assets and tracking amends. I created a network cluster to enable people working on the project to keep things up-to-date easily and an online kanban style board for tracking the status of all deliverables. This helped make the project feel more ‘agile’ and kept work flowing. I also encouraged WIP limits and elevation of constraints to reduce blockages, while the tutors were encouraged to involve themselves in the QA and feedback process as early as possible, to reduce amend cycle time.
