Slipped my mind completely, but my collaboration with Ulf Johansson through MPC New York was on the cover of Advertising Age back in the day when Puppymonkeybaby happened . (Superbowl 50 – 2016). What a ride it was. Look around the website to find the spot. Four manic weeks of working till the wee hours payed off with the weirdest ad to hit Superbowl ever.
I was the compositing supervisor on a great job for Channel 4, the UK channel known for it’s idents. A lot of CG airplanes were integrated into a scenery with some real ones. Guess which is which 😉
Elton John stars as the hard-to-entertain king in this Super Bowl 2012 commercial for Pepsi. We created the castle at Method Studios NY.

“I’m Here”, the Spike Jonze short, done under the wing of Absolut Vodka brand, features prominently in my showreel as one of the pieces I am personally most proud of. The relationship with the director was as complex as the characters Method has created for the movie between the West and East coast studios. An emotionally charged movie, tearjerker with many captivating moments, go forth and watch it ASAP, if you missed it before.
