Taking a quick break from animating before moving onto a new sequence and location.

Between May 2007 and December 2009 I worked on several stop-motion animation music videos. I consulted, collaborated, animated, filmed, photographed, assisted, and co-stared as a live-animated character. I gained experience working in extreme weather conditions, filming in flooded streets after a heavy rain fall, in the sweltering humid-heat in late spring, and during a live snow storm in the countryside.

I executed the following; character and costume design, set and prop design, puppet construction, animation rigging, location scouting, and pre-production research. My design work as a special effects make-up artist is also predominantly featured (see photos below). I animated select sequences and assisted with cinematography as a camera operator, grip, and rigger. I designed cinematic shots and executed practical lighting effects. I also shot documentary photos.
