Kai is an English born, New Zealand raised artist working and living in Melbourne. He works on web based animation, music videos, 3D stills, and plenty more. Kai is self taught in all respects of what he does. He is the product of online tutorials, trial and error and the creative people around him.
His work can be seen across the Australian Open throughout all 3 arena’s at the event and has recently produced video’s for Radio New Zealand, Cup Of Kings App, IceBreak and Szymon’s “Blue Coloured Mountain”.
This is now the result of two consecutive years building custom content for the Australian Open. They were predominantly to be used as 15 second LED screen activation’s in all 3 arena’s with a strong focus on Rod Laver Arena. Always a tonne of fun, and a great chance to work with my dear friend Mighty Boots.
It was important to create dynamic contrasting images that would engage the audience, however that needed to be done at some rather extreme aspect ratios. Which is like designing on the surface of a needle. Though that needle is 2.5 meters high and runs around the circumference of each court.
