Frozen Planet Trailer





This is Frozen Planet, which I was working for a while there..
Should be going out on BBC One soon (Oct?).
I was taking and interpreting data from NASA and commercial satellite scans and turning them into accurate, explanatory yet aesthetically pleasing globe views.
I was assisted in the task by the excellent Jessica Lee.
There is one at the front of this trailer there, but it has been compressed to **** on the YouTubes, there are at least another 6 million shades of snow in there on the full HD version.
(All the animals are real, btw.)

About Me

My photo

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.

You can also find me on Tumblr & Twitter.
