About me

I’ve had over twenty six years experience designing and developing multimedia content for all sorts of platforms, delivery methods and clients. I’ve made hundreds of CDROMs with Director, countless interactive applications with Flash and have spent much of the last twelve years making websites with HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL &c., although the last four years have seen me moving more and more into video-based animation.

I’m a dab-hand with Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Audition, can handle a camera, know a thing or two about video formats and am also fluent in sound recording, sound effects and music (composition, recording and editing). Oh, and I can also do the odd voiceover too, if required - ask me about my Hugh Laurie impression. Actually, don't, The Wife says it doesn't sound anything like him.

In my spare time I like to ponder the nature of universe and to make biscuits. Well, when I say 'make biscuits', I really mean 'help The Wife to make biscuits' by doing the initial testing of the final baked versions (REALITY-CHECK: that's called 'eating biscuits') and doing the washing up of the befouled implements.

I am also a serial parenthesiser (no, really) and my penchant for parenthesis is second only to my desire to hyphenate - I just can't-help-it.


History of Threshing

Agency: Youniverse Digital Ltd


This animated segment was for insertion into a longer piece about the history of threshing in Lincolnshire. Source elements were limited to a few old wood-cut engravings - one of which came from an iphone photo - and I also photographed an old tractor and a steam-engine wheel and used those too.

My role in all of this was to take the supplied storyboard and come up with a quick way of making it all move! I chose a sort-of cut-out effect which embraces the flat, two-dimensional nature of the wood-cuts; I think this works quite well, especially given the very limited availability of both source material and time.

Unfortunately I don't have the final film - so this is just the bit that I made with some sound effects (I don't even have the voiceover). As far as I know, the completed film is now part of an exhibition at a countryside museum somewhere in Lincolnshire. If you ever see it - let me know!
