Every year, awards shows put together a tribute for all the iconic celebrities who have recently passed away. However this year I've cut together a different kind of tribute for all the celebrities who are still alive, but are now dead to me.
Self-driven project. I wanted to experiment with producing a punchy, comedic web video in the same spirit as Colbert's Late Show to spread awareness of celebrity misconduct and assault allegations. Doing this in the style of an awards-show In Memoriam montage seemed like a perfect match of style and content.
At the beginning of 2017, I was fortunate enough to spend some time working at Channel 7 as a broadcast graphic designer, helping to push out graphics for their live-to-air news programming. I primarily worked on Sunrise and The Morning Show, two of the channels most popular shows.
The work in this reel includes segment openers or newsreel graphics where I was both the motion graphic designer executing the final delivery of the project and the creative lead determining the aesthetic of the design.
While studying my Bachelor in Film Production, I sought out opportunities to practice my video editing and motion graphics skills. These are video editing projects from those studies where I was either lead of the post-production process or the sole editor on the project.
For a unit in my Master's, we were asked to create a series of videos designed for social media to serve a specific demographic. I chose to generate a series of educational videos for kids 5-12. The goal is to use animated eyeballs and playful infographics to create a personal connection to get kids intrigued by nature and compelled to learn more. I took care of every element of these videos, primarily focusing on editing and photography.
From 2015 to 2016 I worked full-time as a junior graphic designer for Generic Publications, the internal agency for Harvey Norman's print, web and catalog advertising. My main role was on the Ireland team as an international client, helping them build their brand in a new region.
In 2016 I operated as lead or co-lead artist on several catalogues and print briefs.
In 2014 and 2015, I studied Communication Design at the Billy Blue College of Design, a comprehensive graphic design course with a focus on print and digital.
Included here is some of my strongest design and illustration work from student assessments I completed during my studies.
For almost a year, I volunteered as a Graphic Design Assistant for SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Expo, the largest Japanese pop culture convention in Sydney.
My primary duties were editing together trailers for television and cinema broadcast, designing motion graphics, and designing a 12-page Info Pack for soliciting sponsorships.
