Great fun leading the VFX for this Nike job round at Time Based Arts. Some challenging shots – most notably the tennis court which was completely reprojected in Flame out of multiple retimed plates, and the transition from the newsagents to the running track. Very enjoyable work.

BBC Sounds – ‘Listen Without Limits’

It is a little known fact that if you pack too many celebrities into a tight enough space their combined egos will cause an explosion powerful enough to tear the fabric of space-time, under which conditions cameras will not function correctly. It is for this reason that each of these celebrities was shot separately on a grey screen and I comped them together into this lift. This is a 10 second piece which makes no sense at all out of the context of the main BBC Sounds campaign, but this is the bit I did so it’s what I’m posting. You can see the much more entertaining main film (that I played no part in) over on the Time Based Arts website.

TK Maxx – ‘A White Christmas’

Friend director Ian Pons Jewell along with Wieden & Kennedy bring us TK Maxx’s 2017 Christmas ad. TK Maxx offer shoppers the chance to win a white Christmas by finding one of a limited number of snow globes that will be hidden in TK Maxx stores across the country. Seeing as the last white Christmas to occur naturally in England was back in 2010 this is probably your best bet. This ad shows a family who have won the prize getting more than they bargained for when the TK Maxx snow team show up and blast the whole family including the cat & dog with snow cannons.

Vodafone – ‘Red’

It was an absolute pleasure to work with the very talented team at Time Based Arts for the first time on this Vodafone commercial directed by Aleksander Bach in which a mysterious red light illuminates various night time scenes across Germany until the entire country lights up red (which is the bit I did). Time Based Arts has this to say: “I just received my new phone from Vodafone. It was really weird though as it wasn’t delivered by courier as is normal but a huge red streaking light flew at me and handed me my phone. Although I was originally scared witless by the light and now see it as excellence customer service and this lovely advert makes much more sense to me now!”
