I am thrilled to be able to tell you that my animated entry into the Firefox Flicks competition has won the animation category for Europe! The competition, run by Mozilla challenged filmmakers and animators from all over the globe to make a short video to help share the story of Firefox with the world, I entered a piece called 'The Firefox and The Snake' focusing on the fact that Mozilla is a non-profit organisation, which you can see by clicking here.
The entries were judged by actor Edward Norton and various other high profile Hollywood producers and to celebrate the results Mozilla hosted a special event at the Cannes Film Festival, which I was lucky enough to attend. Here I am in the line up with some of the other winners and Ed Norton himself, then below with the real-life Firefox!
Overall the experience has been incredible and I am thankful to Mozilla and everyone involved for picking my animation to be one of the winning entries, what a result!

This viral film I worked on with Man + Hatchet has now racked up over 2 million views! I worked on the overall edit and did the animation on the shot with the tall narrow tower gives a proud salute on the way down.
This project was really fun to work on and has being going down a storm. If you like it then be sure to check out the facebook page where you can destroy the cooling towers yourself by dumping them!

Just before Christmas I had the honour of animating the music video for 'Gathering Stories', the new track from Sigur Ros front man Jonsi. The song is taken from the soundtrack of the new Cameron Crowe film 'We Bought A Zoo' starring Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church.
So far the video has been getting a great response and I am incredibly proud to have been involved with the project, it was great working with Crush Creative and I think it is my best piece of work yet!
The deadline was tight and there were more than a few sleepless nights but it I think it was all worth it in the end, it was pretty cool getting feedback from the man who directed Jerry Maguire, the film's director Cameron Crowe himself!
