Role: Director, Editor, VFX artist, Sound design
A struggling electric unicycle rider training in an abandoned racetrack is hunted down by an ominous visitor.
My focus is on creating visually captivating pieces that evoke excitement and energy through fast paced action, innovative editing, and a hands on approach to all aspects of production. I tend to stray away from deep and meaningful storytelling, in favour of fast and punchy action pieces, and/or physical comedy. Instead of relying on industry standards, I prefer to experiment with unconventional means of filmmaking.
My latest project, a film about electric unicycles, was born from my passion for these devices, my desire to create a fun and visually striking short film involving them, and to introduce people to this emerging form of personal transportation.
About the Production
I initially created most of the film’s shots in a 3D software called Blender, and edited them into a pre-visualization cut before shooting. As shooting happened, I’d fill in the 3D animated shots with the corresponding live action versions.
