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.
A promotional animated video for "See What I Have Done" by Sarah Schmidt.
Having already created the animated book jacket for a previous Tinder Press project, I was asked by Gavin at MoonAge to take that animation and extend it to show various press quotes.
Taking the "Lizzie Borden took an axe..." skipping-rope song as my starting point, along with a requested phrase from the book ("The clock on the mantle ticked, ticked") I set about creating the video you see here.
I also created the music and sound effects. That's not me singing though. No.
