La primavera


Largo from Concerto No. 1 in E major, Op. 8, “La primavera” (Spring).
A few years back we made projections for a live performance by the Emerald Ensemble of the "Four Seasons" by Vivaldi.
This is one I did for the second movement of Spring.
There was very little budget, so I spent a week or two listening to the piece over and over, when in the car, then did all the CGI work in less than 2 office days.
From the BDH website:
"Vivaldi wrote sonnets for each concerto in the Four Seasons. For this piece he wrote:

And now, in the pleasant, flowery meadow, to the soft murmur of leaves and plants, the goatherd sleeps with his faithful dog at his side.

Each musical element clearly illustrates a scene and the shapes in the animation reflects that."

About Me

I have been working in the CGI industry for 11 years. Studied Animation at the West Surrey College of Arts and Design (now UCA) and have had work shown at the London Film Festival. I work for Bristol based BDH Design and Direction and have worked on programs such as the BBC’s forthcoming “The Rise of the Continents”,  “British Style Genius” (winner of an RTS), "Wonders of the Universe" and also “The Boy with the Incredible Brain”. 

In my spare time (!), I experiment with animation, and recently kept an Animated Journal.
