Line Riders - Beethoven's 5th - 5 minutes
I spent over 3 months synchronizing a line rider track to Beethoven's 5th drawing everything by hand. Any time a character leaves the screen they are being directed by unseen lines to the next location. This is not the full length of the piece. I spliced together parts to make it possible for me to finish the project in a practical amount of time. I don't think my sanity could handle 3 more months of this song.

On Scottish Soil - 4 minutes
Filmed in Dunkeld and Peebles Scotland, this an introduction to Female Riders Race Team, a team set-up to promote up-and-coming female riders in enduro and downhill mountain bike racing. Female Riders Race Team is a girls' cross-country (XC), downhill (DH) and enduro mountain biking (MTB) team launched in 2016 to promote, support and assist a talented group of up-and-coming female riders to race competitively in the UK and worldwide. We want to enhance the buzz around the growing female mtb racing scene and look to bridge the gap between the top elite riders and the rest of the pack. Our long-term aim is to grow the youth-side of the team to create a development platform to grow skills and enthusiasm for racing. We collaborated with Glen Thomson, who at the time was a student studying for a degree in film and had been producing edits of mountain biking events for a while. He's easy going but focused and is always able to put the riders at ease during the filming process. F-riders is a social enterprise created by female riders for female riders. Free-riders, free-stylers, female-riders: f-riders-inc are a community of riders both male and female, passionate about board and bike sports, who positively promote women and girls in these sports. We do this by reinvesting profits from the sale of high quality action sports apparel that is specifically and thoughtfully designed for females. In 2018, we grew the team to twelve riders, which included a youth team of four riders, taking the age range of our team riders from 12 to 40 years old.
