NO A LA PENA DE MUERTE

I was asked by Amnesty International Spain, based in Madrid, to design and produce an original animation for their long standing no death penalty campaign. This animation was to be projected on to buildings in various cities around Spain, during Amnesty night time vigils. The animation is without sound.

MOTION GRAPHICS

When I first started it was known as Broadcast Design, now its all about the Motion. Bottom line for me, is that it is all within the graphic design discipline.

Exige Dignidad

A Motion Graphic for Amnesty International, Spain, based in Madrid.

I was asked to design and produce a short web based film that using a true story from Peru, and which would then be used to launch the new Amnesty campaign for Demand Dignity.

- the final had a soundscape, but i never liked it, so this upload is silent.

Amnesty International Spain__60th anniversary of the signing of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Spanish Section of Amnesty International, based in Madrid, commissioned me to design & produce a short
presentation to celebrate the global 60th anniversary of the signing of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

All the music used, was copyrighted by Amnesty, therefore I had free reign to use what I wanted, and all the images were from the Amnesty Archive, which I was allowed to access for this project.

As there are four languages in Spain, I had to make a version for each region, Castilian, Catalan, Basque and Galician.

HUMAN RIGHTS AHEAD_60th anniversary of the signing of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights

This is a short little film I was asked to make, for a Human Rights initiative & think tank, called Human Rights Ahead.

They wanted me to produce a film that would not only launch the initiative, but would also coincide with the global celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of the signing of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I was featured in the current March issue of the Ipad app Photography magazine, Absolute Photo, for their feature about the Lomography movement and film photography in general. You can’t see the complete feature for free, as its a payable (£3.99) app for the ipad, but this is a sample from a PDF that they sent me to get an idea. It’s ok, although they totally missed quoted me, and added their own words to my original answers, and they were meant to put a link to my flickr stream, on the other hand, they used quite a few of my photos in the piece.
