Unnamed Project China Govt, Tilt Architecture, Weta Workshop 2018-2019

Working on a huge Location Based Experience (LBE) project in china. During my time of this project I was the project lead with Alex Funke (ASC ). We were tasked by Sir Richard Taylor to explore emerging and cutting edge technology and how it might be integrated into experiences for visitors. The LBE was to be like nothing anyone had ever built. Alex with over 30 years in the photography and design fields was critical to the development of this piece of technology. when shown this will change LBE forever. I was instrumental in the research, concept development, exploring user groups and experiences and the development of specifications for the construction and intergration of this massive undertaking.

Wandering Earth China Film Group Corporation, Netflix - 2019

Hailed as “China’s first full-scale interstellar spectacular” (The Hollywood Reporter), The Wandering Earth has launched in cinemas worldwide. Directed by Frant Gwo, the film adapts Hugo Award-winning author Liu Cixin’s story about a desperate mission to save a doomed Earth. To prepare for lift-off, New Zealand’s Weta Workshop manufactured a series of suits equipped with highly technical exoskeletons, domed helmets, and specialty backpacks. I was a part of the final assembly and finish team, helping to integrate complex electronics into the suits and helmets forming a link between the software and hardware teams.

I Am Mother StudioCanal, Netflix - 2019

I Am Mother is an Australian-American thriller-science fiction film directed by Grant Sputore, from a screenplay by Michael Lloyd Green.I was a part of the 3D design and prototype team. This involved the herculean task of actually fitting a man into the Mother Robot suit. Lead by project manager Luke Hawker, we all sort new ways of rapid prototyping, designing and making. We pushed the boundaries of what has ever been done in a wearable suit, from emotive expression, action, stunts and sillyness.
