Hive: Custom Reel Sting & Content

I was asked to make a long standing clients reel.

I created custom animations to display some web and graphics they have created as well as a ‘reel sting’ to ‘introduce’ the montage.
Heres some of the new content I created as well as a little peek at an ongoing project.
And a nice piece of choppy music from Rahat Tarafder really made this whole thing work (though I have just chopped it a bit for this vid) more from him here

Camera Tracking Dino Test

Something I’ve been meaning to learn/test-myself-on for a while, and this is my firs crack at it. It’s nothing too fancy, just comping a model to a wall but its a start. Next up, get some cool animation in there!

Sorry the video is such a crappy quality, I was using a compact as the proper cam was out of juice and I “couldn’t” wait for it to charge.

Factory Build Animation Test

Don’t Realy know how much i can say at this point, but it has been a bit of a stop start beginning to this project and I think were really rolling now. This was just a little animation test but i liked it so much i felt i had to share it.
Obviously loads of inspiration on look from this guys amazing work: Tim Reynolds, the animation was inspired by this here ,and music off Eels new album, I think that covers all bases now, I just hope you like it!

‘Emozione’ (that’s emotion in Italian)

So, after finishing my previous project for the Evolution 2 Motorsport team I’ve been contracted to produce an other video under similar guide lines, for their other product. A Ferrari 458, road performance upgrade kit. I mean what could I say? (apart from “YES!”). So, anyway, I’ve gone for a bit of a different style on this one but I’m really happy with it so far. This is a work in progress at the moment but I have a little teaser for y’all up above and I’ll do my best to update to the final when it’s done in the next week or so.
And again, me wrangling this project in is all down to the good guys at The Hive Business Network. Big thanks goes out to them for their flexibility and faith in me!

0-60 mph In 3.3 Seconds

This is my edit of a project I have been working on, on and off, for the last few months, I have cup the voice over short and sped up the construction of the car to speed the whole thing up, and i put some fun music on it just because.

I took a base model of the car are re-jigged/ started from scratch modelling on all the parts that come on to the car (as well as the wheels) this was a seriously labor intensive project, trying to make sure all the parts fit together correctly (and look nice) was a real painstaking task! To add to this the Kit was still being tweaked and designed during production and inevitably revisions had to be made along the way. But its done, it’s been handed over to the client, I’m happy with it, but more importantly the client is very happy with it!

I hope you like it also!

It’s all about ME! (IDENT)

So, I interviewed for an internship at a studio up in London a few weeks back, and as part of the interview I had to make an ident on myself.

THIS IS THAT IDENT (said in deep cinematic voice).

To produce a 5-10 second long ident based around your name.
Delivery – 2 days
Ideally the ident would in some way reflect your personality, attitude and general
life aesthetic but first and foremost it needs to represent a clear demonstration
of your talents both from a conceptual and technical point of view.

So I made it in C4D and I’m happy with the outcome. Now unfortunately I didn’t get the job but I do still have this little piece.
So enjoy!
