New animation: The Chase

April 30, 2015 § Leave a comment

Here’s my latest animated video for The Backhomes‘ new single “The Chase”. Inspired by the early experimental work of Robert Breer I wanted the piece to have a lo-fi analog look and feel. The choppy animation and strobe effects pair well with the driving song, and the hand drawn animated characters introduce a narrative to the otherwise abstract piece. Let me know what you think:

New Video: You Gotta Move

September 16, 2013 § Leave a comment

I recently finished a video for my musical project The Backhomes‘ single “You Gotta Move”. Inspired by laissez-faire low fi music videos from the 90s by bands like Spacemen 3, we shot it in bits and pieces while on tour. I started editing on my lap as we drove back towards the west coast, layering animation, prismic loops, and footage of a mesmerizing 15,000 sandpipers flying in New Brunswick. You can watch it here!

Animated LUNICE Poster

September 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

This is a poster I designed for the Rifflandia music festival. LUNICE is an electronic/hip hop dj from Montreal. A former breakdancer, he is known for high energy performances on stage, often leaving the dj booth to dance with the audience. I wanted to reflect the energy and movement of his live performances in this poster.

Loving screen printed by the pros at the Olio Artist & Workers Cooperative in grey, black and gold ink, I’ve got 20 18 x 24″prints available for sale for only $20 each + shipping! Get one via my Etsy shop while supplies last. (Click image below to enlarge)

To illustrate the “static animation” technique used in the design, I created this animated gif to show how the images actually combine to make him dance.
