Whoops, its been a while again! Here's what been going on.
The main news is the impending arrival of our first baby! Everything else feels like an afterthought, but in spite of this, the world keeps turning and jobs keep coming thick and fast!
in November I managed to get through School of Motion's Animation Bootcamp, which I wrote a detailed report about here. Sufficed to say I loved it and got heaps out of it!
Last year finished up with me hooking up with a great new company based in Holland and Israel called Hypercube. They do a great variety of videos for the blockchain sector. Since November, I have done Three videos for them. It's been a great summer of freelancing from home and hanging out with Ripley (our Labradoodle)! you can see the first video online here, but the other two are unreleased for now. Joeri the MD at Hypercube comes from a background of crypto trading and also has a great understanding of animation, as does the CD, Tomer. They are great with keeping a production rolling forward across multiple time zones, and It has been a really smooth process for the first three projects.
In the last couple of weeks, I have been back freelancing at Deloitte Digital again in Melbourne. They're a great bunch to work with and the creative team has just been supercharged with four new senior Creatives from McCann. I've been working very quickly to get a case study video together for them, which showcases a three-way partnership with Tennent's Lager in Scotland, McLaren Technologies, and Deloitte themselves, so it's a very interesting one to say the least!
As all this is going on, I have also been working with an old friend, Steve Rickerby in Auckland, who has a thriving Compost management company. I'm really excited about the explainer video I am producing independently for 'We Compost', which is still at the scripting and previs phase.
As always, Watch this space!
