Thank you, Cameron.

THIS is my final piece for the Critical Roles project.

I lovingly and happily used Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, and a spot of GarageBand... Not torturous at all...

I hope you enjoy the dulcet tones of Patrice Thomas, Philip Mason and Tali'eh Bonner. Thank you to them for all their help.


Hello Final Cut Pro.... and such.

These are my workshop tasks using After Effects and Final Cut Pro.

I'd never used After Effects before, so this was my very first attempt. I made text appear! Hurray!

The photograph is from the Parliament Square protest and shows the point in the evening when we were burning out own placards for warmth. Nice.

...And this was my first attempt at using Final Cut Pro. All the photos were taken by me, again, at the Parliament Square protest in 2010.

I have been asking both students and non-students what they think about the state of education in preparation for my final piece. I want to animate a selection the of voice clips I have collected using text.


I keep coming back to these kinetic typographic animations. But I want to make mine look more handmade. I've decided to use an alphabet I have drawn in Illustrator for important words, and then a letter press style font for the surrounding text.

I'm still trying to master After Effects...

Billy's Balloon.

A nice example of hand drawn animation. Well, when I say nice, I mean that in the loosest sense. I think it'd take a miracle for me to pull this off, but it's worth noting.


There are so many examples of the protests on the internet, so here's one for you. Disgusting.

And while we're at it, here's a little animation and article about how cuts should be made to the BANKS, not EDUCATION and the things that really deserve good funding...


Oh Let Me Be Your Sledgehammer.

A lovely stop-motion animation for Peter Gabriel's 'Sledgehammer'. Brilliant.
And Michael Jackson's 'Leave Me Alone' video. Lalalalove.
