"Prepare to be spellbound by Jim Kay’s dazzling depiction of the wizarding world
and much loved characters in this full-colour illustrated hardback edition of the nation’s favourite children’s book
– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.”

In 2015 I was tasked with creating a series of “out of home" animations to promote the latest release
for the Harry Potter series. To bring Jim Kay’s amazing illustrations to life, I painstakingly cut out each element with photoshop
and brought them all back together again in After Effects, where I offset the artwork to bring out a sense of depth
and animated various aspects of each character.
