Moving on from full time production was a big decision, but the idea was to experience, new people, a new team and new challenges. What transpired is a new position @ the Geelong Football Club, managing a very talented team of designers and working through developing video and animation projects with them and the video content team. Very early days, but a very promising future I’m sure.
Some of the first projects coming out have grown from a larger collaboration between the separate teams of the business, working more closely together, challenging each team in new ways and producing higher and higher quality pieces of work. Many more to come.
I have been working on a series of videos for Bikebot throughout 2022, and this particular one was a favorite. The footage is stunning, and the brand is really beginning to develop its own unique style through the design and editing process.

ReNerve was a challenging project as it required to (a) correctly communicate the scientific procedures of the product and (b) keep it simple to understand for any audience. The opening frames went for a more traditional medical journal, to introduce the nervous system and its function, before switching to 3D animation for the actual application of the product in the body. A good battle and challenge between very literal science minded people and the creatives :) A great success.
The Hunt is probably the biggest project I have worked on. Shot over 3-4 years by director Stu Ross, the post production process has been about 6-7 months. Hundreds of hours of footage, many, many offline versions and a combination of duration’s was a super big challenge but what has emerged is something quite amazing.
The film is a hybrid, a new style of 1-hour documentary that has really pushed to retain the beauty and control of a feature but also fits within that (archaic in my view) format of 1-hour television. This was not easy at all and took many revisions, whiteboards, sticky notes to really flesh it out.
The end product is being finished as a 44 minute piece for Discovery, with a 66 minute version (the director would call it the true version) being finished for distribution later in 2020.
A true test of my abilities at every level, happy to have had and completed the challenge. Thanks to all the Robot & Ruby Entertainment guys for taking it on.
The initial brainstorming and flow of the film, and how it would fit in a 44”, 66” or 88” environment.
Added a GIF Gallery to the main page, I have wanted to do this for ages and just have a gallery of my favorite little bits of work. Sometimes it’s only a single shot of work in a much bigger production so its nice to have a spot for this stuff.
New projects also added to the Editing.Post page. Including this new trailer for “The Hunt” documentary.
