Another collaboration with Gav Strange! This time around it was part of the launch for 50-50 skate shop’s Diamond Supply Co. collection -
Gav – “Hey Ciaran, I’ve done this 50-50 x Diamond graphic, think you can animate it for the launch night?”
Me – “Yep, no probs, hit me up with the .AI file and I’ll see what I can do…”
Short while later, after much awkward 3D modelling, mainly trying to get it to match the flat 2D design, this came together – personally, I’m digging the refractions & reflections parts at the beginning. We projected it out on the walls of the building across the road and had it looped on TVs & monitors in-store for added sexiness – check the instagram nerd-fest for more.
Thanks to Gav and all at 50-50 for getting me involved, as ever, it’s always a pleasure.
Clean forgot about this badboy and recently found it lurking in a dark corner of my hard drive. Dating back to late 2011, this was another fun-to-do collaboration with JamFactory on a pitch project which didn’t get picked up by the blokes with all the cash. Too bad, as it had potential to take over the world. More info over yonder…
Here’s a massive amount of work I did for Skinflicks’ TV ad for Betfair back in August & September – one of those jobs that lasted quite a while, partly as I also did the 3D work for the print campaign, yet a project that helped me learn a barrel-load of new skills, tricks and workflow techniques.

In the meantime, a large site update and new work is “in progress…”
2011 was super busy for me, thanks to all the agencies and companies who got me involved and were down for some collaborative all-round radness. Here’s a few of my favourite motion graphics pieces from during the year…
Karmarama: KTV news
Back toward the end of April when we were all enjoying the unseasonably warm days, with a pair of 4 day weekends back to back, this neat little project swung by my way – a short news sting for a fictional news broadcast by London agency Karmarama. In and out the door in a couple of days, woo-hoo!
This is a short edit of a collection of shots I made for the lavish launch show for Range Rover’s Evoque series in May 2011. The tune comes from the soundtrack to the show, though we originally used a different, orchestral sound for this section. I’ve re-rendered a few shots to get them to a more eyeball/monitor friendly size – the original pieces weighed in at a neck twisting 3600px x 360px.
Toward the end of November, Hyundai wanted some motion graphics pieces to help reveal their new i40 car. This is what I made with 3 studio photos of the car. Hyped on this one, turned out good!
I recently helped out good friend, citizen of Bray, Co.Wicklow and cinematographer of epic proportions Phil Evans with his Format Perspective documentary.
Bankrolled by clothing brand Carhartt, Format Perspective is a 1 hour documentary and extremely sexy coffee table book about the work, life, motivation, visual style and of 6 skateboard photographers from various parts of Europe, ranging from the pro-am enthusiast to the magazine editor to the fine artist to the team manager and everything in between. It’s shot entirely on Super 8 movie film and made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.
