BBC olympics 2010
(you can see it a little bigger and much clearer if you go to the studio aka site)
I got to be the co-designer on this spot for the BBC's coverage of the winter olympics. The director on the project was Marc Craste, whose work I have been watching since early college days. Between him and his team at Studio AKA, you can't really ask for more on a job like this. I thank them very much for picking me out and for solving all the problems after I got the fun part.
here is some of the work i turned in. It should be noted that these were mostly done over Marc's early previz work, which was already great-looking. Also all the character designs, including the main guy and the animals, are all Marc's.
and here's a long strip of other ones like that one.
and the official credits for the spot:

this spot has done very well out in the big wide world. It won a BAFTA for Best Titles, and a Gold Lion at Cannes.
