The Rise and Fall and Rise of Rex O’Naugh

Creative design/direction, video content

Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, After Effects

The oft-forgotten* action man of the 80s, Rex O’Naugh’s film career spanned years and featured dozens of high-octane thrills and spills. I directed, edited and produced this supercut, which was a component of the The Rise and Fall and Rise of Rex O’Naugh, a semi-improvised stage play that was mounted during Sydney Fringe Comedy 2018. I also directed and acted in the show, as well as put together its visual design.

Professional education video series

Production to post, Premiere, After Effects

SuperCPD is a quarterly, ongoing education/development program for professionals working in the superannuation industry. Content for the program takes the form of written material and video interviews with notable figures in the industry.

All technical work for the videos (including set up, lighting, audio, filming, editing and post-production) was completed in-house at ASFA by me. Over 50 videos were created for the program with my involvement.

SuperCPD name and content owned by the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia.

Model Shoot

Short film

Premiere, After Effects

This was a guerrilla shoot: there was no pre-planning to the shots, due to time constraints. There was no additional lighting aside from the studio lights set up for the shoot itself. Two Canon 5D MKII cameras were used: one for the time lapse and one that was hand-held with a 200mm image stabilised Canon lens. It was edited in Premiere and graded in After Effects.
