[The following movie clips are short random sections which are highly compressed in order to post them on the web. The actual size and length is posted with the clip.
Whilst they can be shown as individual pieces in selected venues they, ideally, should be seen projected as installations where they would be looped so that the viewer could see them at their own pace and repeatedly if they wish.]

When I started making digital movies 18 years ago the way I made them made them difficult to present, either privately or at public screenings, as the data rate was far too high for the available projection methods at the time. I was never committed to streaming them as this would have compromised the visual experience via the reduced size and data rate.

Luckily recently, with the advent of Blu-ray technology, they can now be viewed easily. The only condition for seeing them is that a Blu-ray player (BD) is available which is getting more and more common every year and, if not yet found  in every home, is now present in most public viewing establishments and galleries.

Most of the work posted here has been converted to this process and can be recognised by the designation “Dvd: Blu-ray” at the bottom of the short description of the piece. Of course you need to buy a player first.

Fortunately now the technology has improved even more and most of the movies included here are now available to be be viewed on Vimeo.

Please use this link to see them:    https://vimeo.com/user24274324/videos/sort:alphabetical/format:thumbnail

This should sort them into the order when they were made, or if not check the ‘Alphabetical’ option above the videos to see the work in chronolgical order.

Alternatively there should be a direct link on their individual page, thanks.

Thanks

Another variation on my 3D animations.
The moving elements are feline derived images on floating, virtually profiled steel forms.

blue is ‘it’

This piece is part 3 of the ‘R,G,B’ series. As in the other 2 pieces most of the visual content is created by the shadows and reflections of forms moving out of view of the virtual camera.
It the title references an old street game – sometimes called ‘tag’ – where one of the players tries to avoid being toutched by others in the group so that the toutcher then become ‘it’. There are no rules and no actual teams.
Ideally the three parts should be shown together as a three screen projection or serially
As with all my recent animated work I made both the visual and sound components.
The original is 1920 x 1080HD but this version is compressed and reduduced in size in order be streamed in vimeo

This short 3D animation originated from an abandoned piece started in 2006. Its roots are a very loose graphic interpretation of some recent family medical experiences. The actual details are not necessary to appreciate it, neither is it a literal interpretation of the conditions involved – it has more affinity with a fairground attraction than medical history.
In common with most abstract work there isn’t a prescribed narrative so the viewer will need to interpret the images intuitively.

As with all Vimeo presentations version is very compressed and also reduced in size.

In this animated sequence the main object is only in view occasionally but its shadow and reflection is  on screen most of the time making up the visual content of the event.

part 3 This is the last section of the tentative liaision series.Once again the players in the part 3 are ‘cautiously’ negoitiating the space and are interlacing with the more static forms.

continuing from part 3, in this section –  part 4 –  the two main forms travese the surface  whilst the other forms are out of camera and are portrayed bt their reflections and shadows on the environment.

tentative liasions: part 1 and 2

Thess  two pieces are  part of a continuing series where the forms move within the confines of their specific environment.

Whilst there isn’t a literal narrative, within this animation the forms react to each other with meticulous care as in choreography.
