I was asked to recreate the Star Trek transporter effect, in order to make a guy disappear. They didn’t shoot anything on green screen, but a bit of rotoscoping and a whizzy particle system – we’re done! Continue reading Star Trek transporter effect
An endless driving experience through LA.
I created the interactive video site for this campaign back in 2008, Night-Driving by Golf, for DDB London. It was shot in LA by Noam Murro. The voiceover is Under Milkwood by Dylan Thomas, narrated by Richard Burton; the music is by Cliff Martinez, which you may recognise from the Solaris soundtrack. Continue reading Golf Night-Driving
I created this little video in After Effects. You can get this video using your logo or image right here.
I worked with Imotion Media to create this animated music video.
They wanted some kind of rotoscope painting effect. So, after doing a few tests, we settled on a style and I started treating the footage. The first step was to chroma key all the shots, since I was planning to composite some together, then add particle effects in front and behind the various layers.
Once everyone was happy with the edit, I dropped it to 10 frames per second to get a stop-motion look and processed each frame with a proprietary image processing algorithm, to get the painted effect (After Effects plugins weren’t quite doing it for me). The result is rather pretty I think.
Back in 2002 some colleagues and I built one of the web’s first and most popular online multi-user Flash games, Dinky Bomb.
After the dotcom we were working for folded (NOW.com / Gamer TV), it was sold to EA and subsequently acquired by Atari, who have unfortunately done little with it. Gone for now, but not forgotten; there are a few YouTube videos out there, including this one, which features Dinky Bomb as part of a TV game show from way back then… good times!
