Hello. I'm called Andy.

I'm a freelance motion designer, editor and compositor based in London, available for commissions both remotely and on location.


Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights is a seasonal song and a rare one-off single for Coldplay. Directed by Mat Whitecross, the video is designed to look like a single take as we see Coldplay perform on a very theatrical-looking stage on London’s Southbank.

With a very tight turnaround, I became part of the team at the amazingly talented Brewery VFX. I worked on transitions, twinkling lights and the fireworks at the end and I think the video has a an amazingly Christmassy feel without overdoing it.
