Very cool particle animation and some great lighting, done with Houdini and After Effects. Watch this one full-screen. Excellent message: "We are tomorrow's Spring."

A motion design sequence with a birth of abstract flowers for a more natural and colorful future.

Wood Naturally - Wood Wise: Building Planet - and People-Friendly Homes

A fantastic, smooth-flowing motion graphics piece from Kasra Design.

We got the great opportunity to work with the good folks at Ogilvy West for the production of an explainer video to educate and entertain viewers on why they should choose softwood lumber as their home building materials and the relevant benefits.

This piece is absolutely mesmerizing. Powerful performance art and magic...


Probing the illusive boundary itself, Interstice presents the veil as a self-contained magic trick: a shapeshifting second skin loaded with potential energy to manipulate identities and temporal-spatial dimensions that would otherwise be rendered immeasurable in its absence. Interstice is an attempt to pass through the veil that obscures our collective vision to reach a space in-between. An interstitial space.

Publicis Botanical Projection

Now, how cool would it be to have animated wallpaper in your office? Well, I would love to actually have an office. But, if I did, having this beautifully-illustrated animation loop displayed would be wonderful inspiration.

Publicis commissioned illustrator Katie Scott to create an animated "living wallpaper" for their London office. Together we created two seamlessly looping animations for display on an ultra-wide projector system and an LCD video wall. The animations evolve slowly over time, creating a subtle sense of movement with their fantastical botanical activity. This brings an intriguing feeling of change to the space in which they are displayed.

Thanks for watching!
