3d animation, motion graphics and interactive media

Randburg, South Africa
I am a specialist in the 3d animation, motion graphics and interactive media.
I have worked in the design, advertising, broadcast, web, corporate, product and architectural industries for 24 years.

My main strengths are giving concepts life, creating winning, exciting, dynamic and realistic media, that is right for each project.
I am inspired by natural form, light and texture. There is so much we can learn from life as it is.

To me, ideas and consideration are creativity. The right Intensity achieves the effect. The right content and media create the magic.

My work includes:
3d animation.
2d motion graphics - animations created from design, imagery & and effects.
Visualisation: architecture, interior, industrial and graphic design rendering.
Character modelling & rendering.
Interactive media - flash & web media / corporate presentations.
Short movies - including film,  image, stock, voice over, sound editing.

I also have experience in IT, hardware & software builds- and advice relating to this.
