My name is Gerard.
I'm a Animator and Creative Technologist residing in Perth, Australia.
With a mix of skills both creative and technical, I try to bring a unique perspective
to every project I work on.
I'm an animator by trade and I have been fortunate to have worked in
different areas of the creative industries in almost 20 years of working professionally.
Based mostly in advertising, I specialise in creating animation, motion graphics, design, illustration and interactive media content for clients both big and small. Check out my show reel below and get in touch if there is anything I can do for you!
Content is what brands want.
I create high quality content. FAST.
I like to mix a lot of 3D animation, traditional animation,
motion graphics, live video and VFX in my projects.
With turn around times that exceed expectations and
something a little extra always thrown in to make people smile.

From the early Eyeblaster Flash days to HTML5 display ads
and video pre-rolls, digital campaigns have been a big part of my life.
I'm Google accredited in Double Click Studio and am well versed in most digital ad platforms.
Here is a selection of ad campaigns I've built.
After life as an Actionscript developer faded out, I've switched over to developing apps and games in HTML5, Unity and Unreal Engine. With my 3D skills, I'm particularly drawn to Web GL, Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies. I'm currently working with Space Draft to create an interactive planning and scripting tool.
DRAWINGS + DESIGNS
In my varied bag of tricks are some handy design and Illustration skills too.
Having a background in animation has given me quick and solid drawing skills,
which come in handy for comicbooks, storyboards and character designs.
I've designed a few brands, websites and interactive apps.
I'd love to hear from you so please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm based in Perth Australia but service clients all around the world!
