The Song

I began this song sometime in 2019 with a concept in mind. I wanted to create something which reflected the quote "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened". The track was to begin and end rather somber, but liven up towards the middle. I wanted something which reflects how you'd think back at certain times or people, perhaps ones that you have loved and lost. Initially, you may be sad that they are not there with you, but then you think of all the great times you had, bringing you much needed happiness in the time of despair.

Why the Swedish title?

A working title for the track was 'Reminisce' but I felt that already had a few lofi releases under that name so in order to create some diversity I had the title translated. Whilst it's not a direct translation, it was close enough that it matched the vision of the track.

The Visuals

Balancing personal projects with client work can be a challenge, so for this release I wanted simplicity. With the song being melancholic, I wanted some visuals to portray a scene of loneliness. Night time is most often when I think of the past, lost in my own trail of thought.

Released on November 6th, 2020.

For this project I was tasked with creating a logo animation for Pazfuels on behalf of Capture the Moment Media The logo animation was to be used in a promotional video.

Forming a 'P' by using the green backdrop, I wanted to use some of the elements in a creative way. Included is a liquid reveal of the text, since the company is a gas station.

I was tasked with creating a logo animation for SoCIAL Lite Vodka Soda on behalf of Capture the Moment Media. The logo animation was to be used in a promotional video with an LGBT theme.

The advert was celebrating pride month here in Canada. I thought it was fitting to be waving the flag. I really like how it turned out!

Official lyric video for Nightmare Nasty's new single 'Body'.

Having done some in-sync lyrical VJ work in the past, I always wondered when the day would come when I would finally work on a full-length lyric animation.

With a mostly teleprompter-style approach to the text transitions, I wanted to ensure the text-on-screen would be visible for long enough so as to still be able to be followed by the viewer. Being a hip-hop track, it's not uncommon for sentences to be in short duration of the proceeding.

Being a regular user of Revolut, it was really exciting when this project came my way. Revolut for Business asked me to share my story with the world.

I've created lots of explainer videos, so it was definitely a new experience being the subject of one!

This project came with some challenges, such as being able to have a rasterised 12 frame composition within a 24 frame-per-second composition. After some head-scratching and trial-and-error, I managed to figure out how to pull it off without the camera movements being affected, allowing for smoother movement.

Veed.io – Web Animations

Web Animations

Bringing life to the graphics on Veed.io‘s website in the form of animated SVG’s. This allowed for much smaller file sizes than GIFs as well as the ability to have scalable, responsive animations embedded to the website. For this, I utilised Bodymovin, a script for Adobe After Effects. Bodymovin outputs your After Effects animation as a JSON file. When paired with the Bodymovin.js library, this JSON file will render as a native SVG animation and run in real-time.
