Media Composer: Music and Sound Design for FIlm, Broadcast, and Digital Content
“Lyft Slots” (2018) From the website: Lyft recently developed a real-world, life-size slot machine to use at events and universities. I was fortunate enough to direct the look for the on-screen content for that slot machine. Together with ISL, we built out a system that plays randomized video content such as win, lose, or jackpot states. Creative Direction, Design, Animation: Chris Guyot. Music & Sound Design: John Poon
“Pilots In Training” (2018) From the website: A collection of seven short narratives that explore the process of learning to fly. Direction, Design, Animation: Chris Guyot Sound Design: John Poon Full project breakdown here
“Mythos” (2018) From the website: For centuries the Greek Myths have been used as cautionary tales and teaching tools for people both young and old. These stories convey deep wisdom about the human condition which continue to resonate with us. I wanted to honor these ancient stories by interpreting them in the age of the pixel and gif. The challenge was to communicate these complex stories in the most minimal way possible while retaining their essence. By having each vignette loop seamlessly, the timeless and perennial nature of these stories are reinforced. Ultimately these animations serve as visual shorthand for ancient truths which are as relevant today as they were when first told.
