I always wanted to have an animated thumbnail so I made one using Joysticks n' Sliders and After Effects.
PLAY NORTH - motion graphics
Ustwo games needed a new logo animation for their upcoming indie game which encouraged players to take a nostalgic look at old cool retro items and rediscover the value of broken things.
BMF (Be Military Fit) is a fantastic way to stay fit and healthy. I went down to their class at Inverleith Park with the aim of making a promotional film to show off what they can do for you.
I'm really passionate about 2D motion graphics. Here's the first of my 'opposites' projects
I needed to create a aerial drone showreel so others could see the potential of this type of filming. Most of the locations are around Scotland, with some shots of the Polish coastline and Swiss Alps in there too.
I made some HUD motion graphics coupled with some drone footage I shot last year for Daysix and the Scottish Ambulance Service.
Finally got around to making up a motion graphics showreel! And here it is. It showcases just some of the work I've been doing over the last couple of years. Motion graphics / animation is an area in which I'm developing a wider skill-set, and more clients. Have a look and if you'd like some motion graphics / 2d animation for your project then I'm always open to new projects and ideas.
I was given a brief from STV / STV Edinburgh to create an advert for Omni Furnishing which has a few shops around Edinburgh. The client wanted a bit of humour in the commercial but also, of course, to get across the message of all the great furniture he had in store.
In 1935 radar was invented by the physicist Sir Robert Watson-Watt & co. Here's one take on a GUI for it.
REBRAND! The time had come to get around to rebranding and here it is! Play North is the new name for all my freelance activities: filming, aerials, editing & motion graphics.
So I finally got around to editing a new showreel. It shows my filming, editing, drone work and motion graphics work over the last couple of years.
Not far from Edinburgh, Siccar Point is a rocky promontory that has become a place of pilgrimage for geologists from across the globe.
I absolutely love title sequences. They are an excellent way of setting the tone of what you're about to see. And the mixture of footage, motion graphics and abstract artistic techniques is my absolute favourite cup of tea.
