  • Secret Cinema - Casino Royale Mission Brief.A mission briefing video for Secret Cinema's 2019 interactive theatre event "Casino Royale" animated by myself and Rachinta Platts, produced by Jelly London. This video was accessed by attendees of the event online, giving them the low-down on their objectives for the night.
  • Have You Ever Wondered?An original Jelly Kitchen production asks "Have you ever wondered where all these baby pigeons are?" This short film was a passion project of the Jelly kitchen team, with help from very talented animators and sound designers, culminating in the heartwarming story of an old lady and her feathered protegees. My Role was creating character designs, keyframing and texturing/compositing the animation completed by the incredible duo Remus & Kiki. The original score was lovingly crafted by Mcasso.
  • Macmillan Cancer Support by Katy Wang (Storyboard & Animatic)In October of 2019, I created storyboards and an animatic with animation director Katy Wang for a Macmillan ad. The ad focuses on the difficulty of being overwhelmed with information following diagnosis.

  • Specsavers - RapunzelSpecsavers 30' TV advert for home visits. The brief was to create the first ever TV advert for Specsavers' new 'Healthcall’ service. Specsavers’ Opticians can conduct eye tests at home for people who can't come in-store for reasons such as old age, dementia and disability. The client wanted this advert to share the same warmth as typical 'Should've' adverts and bring a smile to people's faces, without necessarily having humour due to the delicate subject matter. Inspired by the classic tale
