Mark English, Master of the Digital Arts

Hi, I am a multimedia expert based in Adelaide, South Australia.

As a generalist who has worked in the industry for over 15 years, on a wide of multimedia projects, I bring a wide range of abilities to each project.

I am equally comfortable creating high quality 3d animation for a television commercial (TVC), as I am writing PHP code for a database driven website, or taking on the front-end developer role with some slick Javascript and an eye for translating designs into pixel perfect sites. I also have ability to pick up new techniques and technologies quickly.

I am often able to bring together my animation skills, coding expertise and multimedia development background to enhance whatever project I'm working on. Sometimes it’s my understanding of animation concepts that allows me to fine tune a website’s menu animation so it feels just right, or my Photoshop experience that allows me to mock-up scenes before animating. My coding knowledge also allows me to script up a tool that takes a 3D TVC to the next level.

I am a full stack developer with a few bonus bits chucked in :)

There is another Jim's animator getting around in Adelaide who does the Jims mowing TVC's, please don't confuse that abomination with my work

SuperCheap Auto TVC

My entry for SuperCheap Auto's Big Break competition.

It wasn't a real job but I had fun so its up here. I didn't win which I suspect was due to my lack of girls in bikini's washing cars, never mind.

SA Lotteries Keno draw graphics

We created over 50 draw 3d animations over for the SA Lotteries Keno system, these animations are still in use and played throughout South Australia at 1000's of sites.

This project included reverse engineering the original animations & system supplied by US firm GTech. Later the system was migrated to a Australian built backend and we assisted in the migration of all existing graphics.

Barnacle Bills TVC

3d animated 30 second TVC for Barnacle Bills, a well known Australian seafood restaurant.

Created for Cool Hand Media

Homeloan superstore TVC

3d animated 30 second TVC for the Homeloan Superstore, a NT based company

Created for Cool Hand Media

It's still one of my favourite animations as the client allowed us to go with a simple concept and the time to polish it.

I filmed and edited this campaign video for the SA Ambulance Service.

When every second counts, there's no time to waste. That's why SA Ambulance Service has introduced first response single paramedic intervention (SPRINT) cars. Smaller and more agile than regular ambulances, they're also on their way to save someone's life. So please, if you hear a siren, move out the way.

I knocked up this simple viewer over a few days. Its not intended to do everything the iOS Lytro app does, just a simple viewer and currently still the only viewer for Lytro photos on the Android platform.
