This post is long overdue. Meet NORIKO OKAKU! Noriko studied animation alongside me at the Royal College of Art, although a year above. Noriko produces work in animated video, drawing, sculpture and audio/visual live performance.

Sorry for my delay in posting! I have been super busy working on a fashion video for Alice & Olivia, but it will soon be finished and I cant wait to share.
In the meantime have a look at PRADA’s Fall/Winter 2012 video. I love its minimal movement and futuristic environments.

Here are some images from the shoot last weekend. The crew I worked with were AMAZING! I am so excited about this.
We shot it in OPEN studios, Vancouver BC. Huge thanks to Nobasura, Ben Lederman and Mike McSuede at Open Studios. Full list of everyone involved below…
Over the last month I have been prepping for a fashion film I am directing in January.
These are a few stills from the storyboard. They are for storyboard reference only. Pictures are of found-photographs with cut-out and collage. The film involves lots of paper cut outs and geometry. It is a short fashion film involving stop-motion, cut-out animation and live-action. I cant say too much now except I am going to be working with cinematographer Todd Duym and a team from Nobasura will be on set with Rad Kid Kristy Jacobsen modeling. Guest stylist Deanna Palkowski is working closely with me too. I cant wait. You will be able to see it first on Let Them Eat Cake, London. I will keep you informed when its up. Currently finishing off the making of props – I cant wait to see the giant protractor in action..
Early sketchbook stills you may be interested to see.
Have a look at this new short for Mulberry involving photography and 3D Elements. Love the cut-outs and the fox! There are stuffed foxes too! The still and the moving…
