Breif bit about me

20 years professional experience in visual communication. Recent projects include visual FX for BAFTA Scotland 2017 winner of the Best Short FilmĀ  ‘The Inescapable arrival of Lazlo Petushki’, 2D/3D computer animation and digital illustrations combining these techniques with my graphic design knowledge. I’m currently working full time as a Graphic/Web designer while expanding my skills to include animation for VR in my spare time.

What make’s me different? I’m a bit of an explorer, in the past travelling to four continents. As a family man, I settled in Thailand for seven years, working as a teacher, but now live near Glasgow, Scotland. With my varied experiences in life I have a wide ranging set of skills that I can apply to any field of the creative industries. I feel that I would be able to bring a different aspect to the creative industry in Scotland, inspiring visuals to design and unique idea’s to the world and your audience. I have over 40,000 followers on my social media sites. I look forward to coming up with fresh innovative idea’s. But I think what sets me apart is my enthusiasm to learn, engrossing myself in a subject to enable me to understand why people are passionate about it. This help me successfully design and produce work nobody else can.

Hey Ray,
great work!
The VFX scenes are really good now.
Grading of balloon and the movement connection between balloon and Lazlo is great.
The character is well keyed. I will have to watch the beginning of the shot in slow motion to see if the movement of the ship reads well while he lands.

Many thanks Ray.
