Freelance 3D Animation

I’m a 3D generalist which means I have a solid knowledge in several areas of 3D animation including modelling, lighting, and animation. My 3D animation ranges in style from photorealistic to highly stylised and graphical. 3D animation I’ve created has been used for products and visualisation, characters, and motion graphics to name a few. From modelling through to rendering I’m able to produce exciting 3D animations where there’s very few limitations to what can be created.

    Village Cinemas The Nom Noms

    A group of characters called the Nom Noms were conceived by Melbourne agency Lifelounge for their client Village Cinemas to promote their candy bar products. After initial development these characters were then passed on to us to further refine using  a series of sketches, and then each was modelled, rigged, and textured in 3D for use in animation. In total five characters were created based on candy bar food products – Kernel Corn the Popcorn, Pop the Soda, Koolio the Choctop, Frank the Hotdog, and Salma the Nacho. Once each character was setup in 3D, four different animations were then…

  • Lifebroker Animations

    Lifebroker Animations

    Insurance company Lifebroker approached me to create 10 short web animated videos, each explaining a different product or service they offer. Their logo leant itself to being adapted as a character, and subsequently a family and other characters were created to explain each service. As many of the videos death with serious topics such as death and disability, the characters were used in a non-literal way to explain each product. The concept for each video was created by Chris Northey, and then developed using a sketched storyboard which was then translated to vibrant 3D animations.   TPD Insurance Video  …
