One of the teachers at Thomas More University College hired me to make some explosive social videos to advertise their courses.
The first video he asked me to make was a superhero movie style introduction video for their Communication Management course. This project was hella fun because photomanipulation is what I’m best at. So first I set off to create some bad-ass photo collages from the pictures of the teachers and loads of stock images. Then, when the collages were done, I imported them into After Effects and made an epic parallax video out of them.
The second video had to be a retro game character selection screen style (ugh, that’s a lot of words in a row) video for the Journalism course. Of course because time was limited I had to find some hacks to turn photos into pixel art and give them a Mortal Kombat look. It turned out to be harder than I thought but I’m satisfied with the result.

To promote Thomas More’s MEB course, I was asked to design some animated posters they could use in ads on Instagram. With a flashy colour scheme I went ahead in photoshop and painted some pop-arty lay-outs. Some of the animations were painted frame by frame in Photoshop, for some others I used shortcuts in After Effects and then made them look as if they were done frame by frame.
Below is a compilation of all the animations I did.
