BBC Panorama – When Kids Abuse Kids

To help deal with a sensitive subject, I was commissioned by the BBC to create animations for a Panorama documentary on ‘peer-on-peer’ child abuse. To help anonymise the victims but still tell their stories in a powerful manner, over six minutes of hand-drawn animated content was created to accompany four different children’s accounts.

Working with my wife, Kate Munday, we produced four different treatments to make each case identifiably unique. It was an extremely challenging project in many ways; partly in terms of the amount of content we needed to create but mostly the emotional impact of working on these stories and the difficulty of dealing with the subject in an accurate yet sensitive manner.

Channel 4: From Russia To Iran

For the fourth series of Levison Wood’s epic journeys around the world, October Films commissioned me to create titles and map graphics, tracking his travels across the Caucasus mountain range from Russia to Iran.

Building on the work I’d done for the previous series in Central America, these graphics took on a more rugged and grainy aesthetic, with the country names hewn into the landscapes. Based on satellite imagery and elevation data, we found a balance between realism and capturing the vastness of the Caucasus mountain range.  It was first broadcast on Channel 4 in August 2017.

Driver Youth Trust

I was approached by The Driver Youth Trust to create a video that would explain both their findings on the current state of SEND education in Britain and their visions for its future.

The challenge was to cover an extremely complex and nuanced subject accurately and clearly, whilst still representing the human side of the issue.

The Driver Youth Trust is a national charity dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people with a focus on those with literacy difficulties and who may have SEND, particularly children with dyslexia.

Walking The Americas maps

Working with Robert Grieves, we produced a series of 3D maps for the Channel 4 TV series, Walking The Americas. Using actual elevation data and the GPS of the routes walked, we created textured terrains that accurately represented the journey whilst conveying the tropical environment of Central America.

Several maps were made for each episode and an overall map travelling right from Mexico to Colombia as the title sequence for the series.

Broadcast January 2017

International Opera Awards 2015

Hosted at the Savoy Theatre in London, the 2015 International Opera Awards commissioned me to produce all video content for the event. This included an opening sequence to set the tone for the evening ahead.

A high speed journey through various operas, it was a hugely enjoyable project to research. On the evening the beginning section interacted with the surrounding set (designed by Tim Bird) but that sadly isn’t captured here.
