I create visual effects and music for film and TV projects.
I recently graduated with a first from Edge Hill University where I studied Film and TV Production.

Made myself a new desktop background

I think this is as christmassy as I’ll be this year. And fake snow in After Effects will probably be the most I’ll see as well.

Just remembered that this time last year I was a location marshal during night shoots in Liverpool, at the Pier Head. Coldest few nights of my life.

I think about 99% of my day is spent waiting for After Effects to stop “not responding”.

I’m looking at learning Houdini… brb.

Found an old video on my computer of when I fixed sandpaper on top of the platters of a dead hard drive and put a metal bar across it… sparks!

Looking at it now, it was stupidly dangerous but I’d love to do it again with a decent camera and get some real spark elements for VFX

Ahhh

AAAAA I LOVE WORKING ON THIS FILM SO MUCH.

When it’s finished

I mean, you all have to watch it

I love it and I love everything about it

The Drift is the best film ever
