DC Interactive is a motion graphic and animation studio based just outside of London, UK. 

Established by Creative Director David Curtis, we have been specialising in 2D & 3D motion graphics, projection mapping and virtual reality since 2003. 

Featured Project:  Projection mapping 

Apollo 50: Go For The Moon

59 Productions asked me to animate a sequence to form part of the presentation that was projected on to the Washington Monument in July 2019. This was to celebrate 50 years of the Apollo moon landings and, as you can imagine, it was an honour to be part of this project and most definitely the highlight of my career. The section I animated can be seen in this video from around 03:00 to 10:00.

Featured Project:  Broadcast ident 

Total Country Idents

They Creative created an amazing brand for a new (and now defunct!) Country Music channel, Total Country. Taking concepts from Adam at They Creative, I was asked to create 3 channel idents to be used throughout the channel, and also an animated “bug” which sits in the top left corner of the screen. I had great fun on this project, and I really enjoyed working with Adam and the team at They.

Featured Project:   3D Character rig, social media campaign  

#FlipWithFred

I was honoured to be asked to make Fred, the iconic flour-grader from Homepride, flip a pancake for Shrove Tuesday 2017. This meant a *lot* of R&D for skinning characters using CAT Rig in 3DS Max. Lots of issues with creasing around the armpits / shoulders / elbows, and there is lots that I would improve if I were to remake it. Everything is a learning process in this game.

Featured Project:   Virtual Reality

I was asked by 59 Productions to be Lead Animator on this moving and poignant virtual reality experience to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. The 6 minute experience was inspired by the Five Telegrams commission by the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival and 14-18 Now.

Featured Project:   Explainer animation

I was asked to come up with a brand for a new company called Customer Thermometer, a company that allows you to get Real-Time Feedback From Your Customers. I came up with logo ideas, presentation materials, animations and web styleframes that were used as a base to build the current brand.
