Andante Con Moto

Latest in a series of animation based around sound and motion. The piece was inspired by a tutorial posted up on the web, which I can’t for the life of me find. When I find a link, I will post here: Basically this animation uses a few of Trapcode’s plug-ins and a few expressions that … Continue reading

Lizard in a Glass Tube

I was trying out a tutorial by Andrew Kramer called Galactic Orb, and decided to extend it a bit with some of my new found VJ footage. This is just a bit of fun rather than a full blown animation, but it’s nice to mix footage with after effects. It was also good to use … Continue reading

I wondered how much of a social whore I was becoming so I included my own details on top of facebook. I wasn’t prepared to do the same with twitter due to possible shame and … Continue reading

Smoke illustrations

Smoke Angel

Some recent experiments have lead me to develop a technique of drawing with smoke. In essence it is a really simple procedure, find image, trace using smoke layers. Creating the smoke layers is really a matter of using the distort filters in photoshop and building up a “smoke screen”. Make a few variations of this … Continue reading

Bedroom VJ sessions

I released a series of videos which were an insight to where my live VJ sets were going. Each video was a slightly more planned version of what my usual improvised live set were about. Although I had time to rehearse each song and edit slightly to create a finished video, the live aspect was … Continue reading
