BILLMONITOR

This project was made for Billmonitor as an animator for Togada. I created the assets in Adobe Illustrator and rigged and animated the characters in Adobe After Effects using Greg Gunn's Puppet Tools plugin. Togada's graphic designer Umberto Pezzini improved upon my initial designs, fleshing out and bringing new life to the Billmonitor world and characters.

PROOF MASTER

This project was made for Proof Master with Figment Agency and Togada. I used assets from the Proof Master website, created and rigged characters and objects in Adobe Illustrator then animated them in Adobe After Effects using Greg Gunn's Puppet Tools, Battle Axe's RubberHose 2 and Mike Overbeck's Joysticks n' Sliders plugins. I used stock textures and added them to the characters and objects. I also placed them in 3D space for depth.

 

Logo animation design for East15 ltd., and independent film company. The logo was originally filled with white, I converted it into strokes in Adobe Illustrator and animated it in Adobe After Effects using a combination of Trapcode and native effects.

CHRIS & JACK: TRUE FRIENDSHIP

 

This was a commission for the comedy duo Chris & Jack for one of their weekly YouTube sketches. 

For this project I used Adobe After Effects for VFX. I applied a camera shake in select parts to mimic an earthquake. I also used stock footage of debris and smoke throughout the video to add to the atmosphere and for effect, like the dust on the floor when jack rolls into the room.

The door was originally a green screen matte, I used a combination of textures and clip art to create an aztech-style door which I color graded it to match the rest of the room. I also added in the rock that falls on jack at the end, for that I used an image of a rock and combined textures and blending modes in After Effects to match the grittiness of the cave.

As Jack was still in that shot I duplicated the scene and used a mask on top of a shape layer and used Motion Blur on the rock so it would make Jack 'disappear' under the rock.
