Character Animation

…getting a right shock.

Created this commissioned video for Powerco, who were fantastic clients and really allowed us to create something above and beyond your usual corporate communication.

Co-directed by redkidOne and Sinclair Lonsdale. Produced, edited and animation by redkidOne. Model and practical FX by Sinclair Lonsdale.

…fitting together the pieces.



Here’s the gorgeous new video for Module, “The Pieces Fit”. Filmed during recording sessions at Roundhead Studios in late 2011, the video captures Module jamming out an original version of The Pieces Fit with the artificial music intelligence known as C:Lux.

Beautifully shot by Marty Williams. Smooth edit by Lisa Cooper. Epic matte paintings by Felicity Moore.
Music by Module, from the album “Imagineering”.
Directed by redkidOne.

…getting lost in a dream. Again.



This was a really refreshing piece to create – taking lovingly-rendered illustrations and building a story-world out of them. A collaboration with the wonderful Kieran Rynhart, who originally created a gorgeous cover for Rhian’s latest album “Stories From Elsewhere”. To create a video around this image, Kieran created a second piece based on the story we wanted to tell, and from these two artworks the entire video was made.

Music by Rhian Sheehan. “Little Sines” from the album, “Stories From Elsewhere”.

…power x-treme!



You can never complain when you’re given an excuse to create robot suits! Originally onboard for concept design, I also ended up animating on what turned out to be a great wee spot even on a tight turnaround.

…flying faster than a magic pukaea.

Animated sequence as part of the Opening Ceremony of the 2011 Rugby World Cup. A great excuse to show of New Zealand’s landscape, especially as a follow-up to “Twin Galaxies”. Pretty daunting to be creating something for such an event and such a massive audience, but definitely worth it.
