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.

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.

Last Sparks Of Sundown film titles




It was an honour to be commissioned to make the opening titles for the feature film The Last Sparks Of Sundown.

My work was completed in the summer of 2014, but I only got to see the film a year later. Filmed on a micro-budget, starring The Pajama Men, Miles Jupp and Emily Bevan, Empire magazine called it “A fast-paced country house farce with verve, invention and a good heart.”

Nothing beats seeing your work on the big screen but you’ll have to make do with Vimeo for now…

Guardian Films

I worked on a range of projects for Guardian films with a few different ones compiled above.  In order these are:

Building The Future – a series of short films on environmental architecture

The Observer Ethical Awards – online and live stings for the annual Observer event.  These ended up also becoming part of the set design

Green Streets – A documentary series on a street’s attempts to reduce their energy use and bills, illustrations by Sandra Howgate

Ye Olden Days – nativity animation

A four episode series of animations for the Diocese Of London’s Christmas teaching packs.  Whilst other material taught an orthodox version of the nativity story, these animations were intended to be an irreverent take on those events and a light-hearted introduction to the lessons.

Used in hundreds of schools across London, each four minute episode was created by myself, including writing and recording the theme tune.  Vocals were provided by Jake Morley, character voices by Morgan Thomas and banjo by Jamie Munday.

Movie Rush – Film4

A complete branding and design package for the weekly Film4 movie show (now sadly defunct). The whole show was presented via a graphical interface which I was tasked to redesign and create a turnkey project for their future use.

Winner of an iTunes award for Best Video Podcast, Movie Rush was a pioneering multi-platform film review programme available online, via iTunes and broadcast daily on the Film4 TV network.

Described by Broadcast Magazine as the ‘Perfect Podcast’, Movie Rush was the first internet video show to be commissioned for TV in the UK and broadcast daily on the Film4 digital channel for nearly four years.
