Al Jazeera English Idents

A series of idents I directed at The Mill.  The plan was to illustrate Al Jazeera's key values - Resilience, Diversity, Rawness, Fearlessness and Revolutionary Spirit - in metaphorical natural landscapes, where crashing waves stood in for oppressive regimes and tiny, unique grains of sand were individual viewpoints.  In all we made five. Four were built entirely in 3D animation (Cinema 4d and Houdini with help from Quixel Megascans) while one used reworked stock footage. 

I led the project from pitch to completion.  For full credits please visit The Mill's page:
