First Flight is an animated short about a wingless owl who just wants to soar!

This was my first animated short created in the Watermark studio in 2011. Characters design by Cinzah Merkens.


Working on this Tasti TVC was one of the highlights of my time at Watermark. I took on the role of animation director and was responsible for bringing the whole thing together, as well as 3D modelling and rigs, various animations, liasing with the illustrator and animators, and compositing.


This animated short was designed to be a summer e-card for Leaseplan to mail to their clients in 2015. I created this from start to finish, from story and character design, to animation and compositing.


Keno Dogs is a series of animated shorts created by Watermark in 2014. I created rigs for all of the characters in After Effects and animated several of the dogs. All artwork by Anton Petrov.


The Elephant Project was my final year project at Auckland University of Technology. It is a story painted frame by frame on a large canvas.
