Avengers Assemble Title Sequences

Title Design:Television Show
Product Factory/ Marvel/ Disney


Rippling in the success of the Marvel movies, and especially the Avengers, Disney has launched a new animated TV series bringing all those heroes together again: Avengers Assemble.


This short and sweet title sequence was a final pass at what already included great proposed concepts by other designers, but who had far more pressing responsibilities than to keep going back to the drawing board again and again.

American Girl Title Sequences

Title Design: Feature Film
Universal Studios/ NBC/ Mattel


Here we are again! The second in a series of American Girl movies directed by Vince Marcello, I was kindly asked back to design the titles and again handle the majority of the visual effects.


The angle for the title sequence was to establish our main character as an artist and that she lives in the South West. Juxtaposing the footage of New Mexico landscapes with stylized high-speed, macro footage of drawings and pastels, my approach was to use texture to tie it all together.

Universal Studios/ NBC/ Mattel


We are back! Hot on the heels of the success of 'McKenna Shoots for the Stars', there is a new American Girl in town and she's painting the sky.


There were so many VFX shots worked on in this picture that I have not even bothered including, or really mentioning them all here. It consisted of the standard trappings of sky replacements, image enhancements, seamless split screens, lots of image stabilizations, reflections, and object and wire removal.

Arrested Development VFX


Visual Effects: Television Series

Shape Shifter/ Netflix/ Imagine Entertainment


As you may guess, a TV show known for being a masterpiece of character and comedy doesn't need very many obvious effects. The effects it does need will usually fall into the category of 'correctional', and if done right, will not even be apparent.


In this case the guys over at Arrested Development needed a late in the game extra hand on a single outstanding shot. Turned out a rogue light stand needed to be removed from a shot.


Classic corrective VFX shot.
