These videos were created during my time with GREY Advertising Vancouver for BC Ferries’ Christmas Campaign showing various sightings of Santa on his sleigh Christmas Eve night.
Santa Tracker Radar
This video was created for BC Ferries Christmas Campaign showing "NORAD" tracking an Unidentified Flying Object coming from the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
BC Ferries Santa Tracker: Post 1 Tracker Kickoff
This version was made to loop on Instagram or Facebook.
BC Ferries Santa Tracker: Post 2 Entering BC
This second post shows Santa flying over a geographically accurate depiction of Prince Robert, BC
BC Ferries Santa Tracker: Post 3 First Sighting
This third post gave the impression that a small crowd aboard a BC Ferry vessel had seen Santa fly by.
This fifth post (the fourth post was a photo of Santa on a rooftop) shows the magical moment when Santa passed over a breaching orca.
Cut-Out Casey “Time Lapses and Drone Shots”
This is a “Cut-Out Paper/Stop Motion” version of a puppet rig I created and lip synced to dialog from a Casey Neistat vlog. Built entirely in Adobe After Effects over the course of an afternoon. You can see how a slow frame rate and the addition of paper textures can give the impression the animation was done with painstaking, single frame exposures with carefully cut out paper shapes.
Tourism Langley City
While the client eventually settled upon a different name for the Langley City tourism bureau, this design for their logo and letterhead was a frontrunner and conveyed the playful nature of a city whose tourism is built on festivals and activities.
The Fraser Valley Experiences Guide
The Experiences Guide was an print publication that was printed annually to help drive tourism to the Langley, Chilliwhack and Abbotsford attractions within the Fraser Valley.
I worked on prepress production, colour correction as well as checking over submitted advertisements for “print-worthiness.”
The client was in need of an illustrative branding piece to use on sponsored videos to more strongly convey the company’s most famous product. The client wanted a cross between vintage RKO Pictures look-and-feel and Shepard Fairey’s “Obey Giant” pieces.
I designed and produced a series of production cards for Bandwagon Media’s AMC Television series “Geeking Out” with Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg.
Each episode of the series would end with a slightly different production card, each with a surprise of its own.
From top to bottom, left to right, you’ll see “Bubbles”, “Flame Thrower”, “Death Star”, “DeLorean” and finally the standard edition as it was broadcast at the end of the first episode.
Bandwagon… As Seen On TV
Jules+Kent “Umi’s Kitchen”
I worked as print production artist on this brand consisting of labels for various jar sizes as well as pull-up banners and other support pieces.
FMI Brands “Outland Firebowl”
This was a situation where I was brought in very early in the production of a line of propane campfires.
I was given photography and illustrations for one of the products and was challenged to produce manuals and packaging for all the related versions of that product by “photoshopping” in or illustrating the differentiating features.
