One of the perks that VFX and photography share and drew me in is that you’ll start to look at the world differently … closer, more aware,

Dewars

Life show programmer, operator, projection mapper

ClassRoom

Wow, what a gig!!! No idea how Dewars managed to get us the permit to do this crazy gig in the center of Kuala Lumpur.  For about a month we were running a 90min multimedia show twice a day including a 12mx3m interactive video projection achieved with a total of 6 projectors. Seamless moving images were created with a 25% overlay and interacted with a Scottish ambassador, who taught everything possible about Scotch Whisky.

For this years Franchize Awards we decided to go with a nature theme, with the panels for the projection areas spinning and leaving water movement behind.  Fun gig.

Wow, what a gig!!! 8 workstations, as many monitors (plus one for live tv feeds), 20meters above the stage in an amazing theater – plus the VIP after-party of course.  We had (I believe) 64 plasma screens coupled together in the shape of a cassette tape flying on and off stage and content displayed on my cue.  Worked with a great team, what more can you ask for.  I’ll never forget this gig! Below a couple videos showing what we did:

Adidas || All Blacks

In 2D,AFX,Art Direction,Editing / 2. October 2007

Art Director

Before New Zealand’s national rugby team the mighty All Blacks headed to Paris for the 2007 Rugby World Cup, major sponsor Adidas threw a show including a life gig of OpShop (New Zealand Music Award Winners). Gear for the world cup in France was given away including two custom Adidas-AllBlacks guitars manufactured by Fender.
To promote both the All Blacks and Adidas we produced a video of said event to be shown in Adidas stores across the contry. My job was to take the raw footage, convert it, create a story out of it and cut it all together timed by the life performed song of OpShop.  After that (being new to the country myself) I finally knew who they were.  Good luck boys!!!

Speaking of jumping in at the deep end … first gig fresh outta uni … vaguest brief … using Watchout for the first time, BUT I DO love my challenges.  Luckily I found out New Zealand’s Prime Minister Helen Clarke was to speak in front of my graphics only when I got to the event at the Auckland Hilton :P.

rOnBoard Snow

Looking forward to start working in Auckland just in time for the snowboarding season to kick off, I decided to spend a couple hours to design and create a board mockup I would get custom made.  Thematically the horns of the skull resembles the Auckland Sky Tower.   The design recently drew some attention to a German snowboard company and you might see it on the slopes soon ridden by more than just me.
