New York Times – Modern Love, by Jimmy Simpson

By Inspiration No Comments

Direction, Design & Animation: Jimmy Simpson
Producer: Nicholas van der Kolk
Sound Design: Jimmy Simpson & Nicholas van der Kolk
Music: Vince Simpson & Jon Kruz

This is a bit of a “directors cut” of the piece I made for the New York Times. I wanted to do my own audio pass to give the animation a more somber vibe. Hope you enjoy it.

Follow Your Dreams, by Joe Donaldson

By Inspiration No Comments

This is a great example of collaboration. Co-directed with Jay Quercia, we worked remotely with Gloss Creative out of Canada. With Jay leading the design effort and myself leading the animation, together we conceptualized, storyboarded, designed and animated this fun piece for Seneca College bringing to light the fact that it’s never too late to follow your dreams!
