Six International characters from across the globe are en route to OFFSET’s first international design conference held in London. They’re traveling on their very own custom made motorbikes, each carrying an individual letter to help spell out ‘OFFSET’. While driving on the road, they each leave a messy trail that help spell out the 18 guest speakers names.
Stoked to be invited to direct this piece. Damien Bastelica created this piece with me the whole way through so an extra thanks to himself!! Thanks to Michael Girandola for all his time with the camera shoots! Big shout to Gavin Little and his crew at ECHOLAB for doing a sick job on the sound design and a huge cheers to Lisa Haran and Bren Byrne for asking me to be a part of their amazing conference. Also want to thanks Clemens Den Exter for lending a hand in times of worries!

All the characters are made out of clay and hand painted 4 times or more to create the boiling/flickering effect which was inspired by a technique I saw Conor Finnegan do. All the background props and guest names are cell animated.
Equipment: Clay, wire(for the skeleton structure of the characters), an oven(to bake some parts of the clay), Acrylic paint, a Cannon 5D camera, and a mini light-box studio
Programs: Dragonframe(for stop motion), Adobe Photoshop and After Effects
