Hello and welcome to Rocketscience Design Ltd, specialising in Motion Design and 3D Animation across a range of areas, such as tv commercials, explainer videos and product promotions. Rocketscience Design has been creating animated videos for New Zealand and Australian clients since opening for business in 2005, with over 20 years experience in television and post production.
I have worked on a variety of projects for direct clients and advertising agencies - large and small - including Ford NZ, Noel Leeming, Westfield, Queenstown Airport, DairyNZ, Healtheries, Family Health Diary, OfficeMax, Canadian Club Whiskey and NZ Trade & Enterprise, as well as designing & creating broadcast titles for TVNZ and Sky Television.
I work with leading industry software ... Black Magic Design's Fusion Studio - an advanced node-based,
multi-resolution visual effects package. I am also experienced with Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro & Media Encoder, and for 3D animation I use Autodesk 3DSMax 2014.
My studio is based in the agreeable - if somewhat sleepy - seaside village of St Heliers (I like to refer to it as the Riviera of Auckland), where you will find our comfortable studio ... which may not overlook a pool and sun-drenched
deck ... sun being dependent on Auckland weather of course!
I am passionate about sustainability & environmental issues and have donated studio time to a few NZ non-profit groups. As well as a passion for all things animated, I am a keen kiteboarder (wind permitting), mountain biker, and eskateboarder. I'm also a dab hand at the darkly treacherous game of golf croquet, where I hold the 2015 and 2016 club champion title at St Heliers Bay Croquet Club. Yes, I am rather proud of my humble sporting achievements.
So bring your bathing trunks, kick back poolside with your Macbook Pro and Mojito* at hand while I sit in my darkened room and work up a storm on your latest video inspiration!
