Bowerbirds: August


Fireflies in an early evening.... It's probably no surprise that this video was vastly inspired by amazing photography of Yume Cyan. We combined simulated particle fireflies created with custom aperture sprites with a footage of the forrest and then revealed it with the mattes shot specifically for this project (as usual).

Bowerbirds: July


For the July Bowerbirds clip, I decided to try something new. I created a realistic model of the Moon, based on the elevation maps gathered by NASA and animated the illumination phases as the light (the Sun) traveled around in. Having been recently turned onto the Mystery Science Theater 3000 by Conor, I then stylized it to look and feel like a stop motion project from the early days of Sci-Fi.

Google: Nexus Playground


For the 2012 launch of the new Nexus family of devices, we imagined a playful world of Google services interacting around a stack of devices. Following the success of the first Nexus Playground video, we were then asked to create a series of sequels, each talking about a particular type of experience Nexus can provide to its users. The films below were originally published inside rich media banners, as a part of Google's 2012/2013 Nexus: The Playground is Open campaign.

Everything Tastes Better in Slow Motion (part 2)


Here is part two of our year-long project of liquid experimentation (read: splashing oil around the studio). Can you guess what did we actually shoot to achieve these visuals? Drop me a comment below if you think so :)

Bowerbirds: May


It's a new month (well, almost the end of it) and a new Bowerbirds song time. This time I have used some of the techniques quite familiar to the followers of my tutorial series. The overarching principle remains the same - a video loop revealed by mixing Cyan, Magenta and Yellow inks. It's quite a jump from the April one and we're already brewing some ideas for June :)

Everything Tastes Better in Slow Motion (part 1)


We were tasked with exploring the world of slow motion macro photography of our client's olive oil interacting with various substances and objects. In other words, we spent 2 weeks armed with a Phantom camera, splashing galons of oil all over the studio and making everyone hungry with the smell of oil heating up in thousands of Watts of light.

Bowerbirds: April


Inspired by the cross-processed photos and CMYK printing, I have developed a visual effect for "digital polaroid", based on the ink bleed transitions and used it to reveal the video over the course of a three minute song.

Nexus Q: Sweet, Smart


Nexus Q: Sweet, Smart is a little something something I cooked up a while ago for the launch of Google's new media player. The product has been shelved, the video never produced, but I still have this kickass test.
