Matrix Reloaded & Matrix Revolutions - Assistant Art Director
My Key Sets: Merovingian's Chateau, The Apartment & Locke's Office. Storytelling in film silently illustrates the circumstances of each character’s life. To convey the Merovingian’s grandiosity, I created his mural with a logo and battle imagery derived from Napoleon. To convey the drug-induced numbness of the Matrix, I drew patterns of opium poppies on the wallpaper and worked with the set finishers to deliver the perfect amount of decay.
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith - Jr./Sr. Draughtsperson
My Key Sets: Federation Cruiser, Amidala's Spaceship, Dooku's Speeder, Amidala's Funeral, Coruscant Entertainment District, & Senate Transport. While applying the final Naboo lettering inside Amidala's Spaceship, four Hobbit (actors) from New Zealand came into the space ship for a surprise set visit.
Abu Dhabi - Team Leader ESQUISSE Design Studio (Sydney)
In re-conceptualizing Ghantoot Racetrack into a luxurious city, we drew on the Emirati passion for Arabian thoroughbreds. Each neighborhood wraps around its own polo field uniting cultural history with elegant modernity. My work included research, design of homes & public buildings, as well as directing our local 3-D modelers & remote Shanghai render farm to produce an 8-minute dawn to dusk flythrough.
STUDIOS Architecture (San Francisco & London) TZANNES Associates (Sydney). Finance & Legal firms must convey: “We are reliable. You can trust us.” This leaves discrete opportunities to impart a firm’s history & POV. Linearity & lightness convey rationality. Sweeping shapes & unique materials convey forward movement. Dark wood & deco lines convey a connection to tradition.
