This one I didn’t get to film myself… Warner Brothers kindly gave me the footage to edit though!! This is just part 1 of the interview, find the others on Youtube at the ASSERT UK channel.
Don’t try this at home kids, its dangerous, and far too funny. A pun on words for the oldest inn across the UK. A t-shirt thats funny, clever, modern and marketing the pub all at the same time.
An incentive to speed up response times for the chefs in the kitchen and a chance to give your ideas to head office. Money to be won to spend on your pub. Illustrations of several fruits and vegetables, some of which turn into money. The faster you go the more you make.
Essex university Students Union required models for an animation. Several rooms were made to build up a house, because they are one big unconventional bunch and they welcome you to the family. I still dont know how I made the microscopic angle poise springs… I think I was in a kind of sleepwalk/sleepbuild by this point.
In 2013 the NHS asked me to create a symbol and brochure for patients and another for clinicians about Abuse that has happened in the past. I was asked to use purple ribbon and not much else, however with the sensitive nature of the brochure I felt the pressure. After numerous attempts to make ribbon stay in place, (including using hair straighteners) the final photographs were taken. The ribbons travels from page to page throughout the brochure, gradually resolving issues and becoming simpler. A very well received outcome. Even resolving a few to tears.
I cant resist the opportunity to create some tiny objects from paper and card. Essex university Students Union required models for an animation, but I didn’t really do it for them did I?
Seriously though, you dont need ‘dutch courage’ to be a whistleblower these days. It’s encouraged. From the three posters designed for Greene King to gather up some truth this poster was chosen. Clever but not too daft, make sense.
This poster is designed to encourage whistle blowers by making light of a topic that seems to make people tense. What’s wrong with that?!
A poster thats full of life and fun but with a serious message that encourages whistle blowers.
Ye Old Trip to Jerusalem was in need of some marketing and branding brochures. A lot of photographs taken for this project to try and incorporate all the different hidden treasures at the pub.
Briefed to create a poster for the Christmas Playlist 2013. I created this poster with all these hanging decorations and some unusual looking baubles…
A poster to advertise The Bell Inn’s offer for Mother’s Day in Spring 2014. Chocolates and Flowers for just booking ahead – that’s a bargain.

Raising money for Movember and awareness for Prostate Cancer, November 2012 saw a Movember Ball, of course, with a competition for the best moustache. Beyond the best moustache in the pub, The Bell Inn offered the punters the chance to have an old fashioned shave from a local Barber.
Christmas 2013 was welcoming everybody to The Bell Inn, sending out these letters and printed envelopes to make sure no one missed out on the free bottle of Processco to everybody that booked ahead for a festive meal.
Neanderthals are known for being greedy and this BBQ night is exactly the opposite. It’s offering more generosity than you can eat! Advertising the huge feast was left to these flyers. They didn’t get to go to the ball.
Theres nothing like a good miniature piece of Plastercine pizza to feed your cravings for some fast food. Used in two animations so far and to be frank, I’m surprised this piece is still left!
A recruitment campaign that grabs the attention of pub managers flicking through the newspaper or a magazine. Briefed to not look so cooperate and distant to the public.
Drawings to visualise an alley in need of a new look. An alley that invites passing people to go through it to discover the secret courtyard brewery. I know it would work on me….
The Antelope decided to use their brickwork sheds in the courtyard to create more space for customers, including a open fireplace, micro brewery and a small shop to sell their home brews. I was commissioned to visualise and create a series of refurbishment plans.
A poster and banner to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Charity ‘Breakthrough Breast Cancer’.
A showcase for all the animation’s and film’s I made in 2012. Some stop motion, CGI, live action and model making all star in this showreel. A very diverse range of media used to capture different storys and emotions that are required for so many different topics.
This collection of work was briefed by Big Fish, London. After two weeks creating and modifying a series of short playful animations they are now being used on the product website to illustrate and emphasize articles and recipes. These animations were made using Adobe After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop.
Studio: Big Fish. | Animation: Molly Brown
An emotional stop frame animation film. In response to an interview with a Lady who experienced some difficult things as a child, most of all, her Dad leaving. This was the second attempt to capture the delicacy and emotion. My first project using entirely primarily sourced materials, audio through to visuals. Capturing elements of reality, e.g. smoke and light to give a sense of reality but blended into metaphorical visuals.
This project was a slightly rushed animation to sit alongside this years christmas cards made by me. This animation was finished just in time to broadcast it on Christmas day. Made mainly with Plastercine and a couple of extra elements like real pears and LED lights. Stop Frame Animation with a hint of CGI at the end.
A miniature mouse and block of cheese. Both are less than 10mm in diameter. This took patience to new levels. Made with thread and Plastercine. If you look close you can see that there are tiny fibres visible on the cheese.

A logo design for a product called Datacuckoo that logs times spent on different projects that a person or company works on and then neatly converts it into Datafile, the ordering system.
A quick day project set to influence people to Vote. Use of model making was key in this theatrical piece, a simple approach for a complex topic.

Filmed & edited all in a day. (Model Making prep made in advance.) An advert idea for ‘Ebay’ made using stop motion animation.
*Whilst making this film no Ted-Ebay-ers were hurt.
My very first animation back in 2008. Slightly naive but its nice to reminisce. Limited use of colour and mainly made with text.
Made for a Greetings Card, for a man who likes pork pie. A lot. Made with plastercine and no, sadly we couldnt find a tiny little mouse to nibble on the slice so we had to make a pretend bite. Hence the Tiny Mouse project. It was called for, obviously.
At first glance this is a fine demonstration of a replica model. (Bragging a bit!) Didn’t take long really either. Made for the You’re sure of a big surprise film to represent the category of electricals. It’s metal sheet aluminium, card and a drawstring cord.
A new kind of genetically modified potato that is designed to peel itself for you. How handy! - But I dont think potato man knew what was coming, poor Guy.
Not a lot of skills being used here. Just a little fun in the kitchen. Designed to lead on from the Potato animation but never quite got there.
A lengthy project in terms of cutting out with a scalpel for days on end and only hoping its going to work. No practice run at all, which is nearly always a bad move. The technique works nicely, if only it was shot with a better camera. This was all made and the animation shot on a 60cm x60cm coffee table. Surely thats gives it a little extra credit.
A bit of Cockney rhyming slang influencing the artwork here on this greetings card. Congratulations for getting a job. This was a rather quick project, taking just an hour to make a clumsy looking bumble bee with Plastercine and polythene wings. He still hangs about in the kitchen and scares people away from the fruit.
