#ChinatownYVR Instagallery

CLIENT: Saint Bernadine Mission Communications
AGENCY: St. Bernadine Mission Communications
PRODUCTION: Future Perfect

The Challenge:
With only a few days to turn this job around, I had to think on my toes and burn a little midnight oil to deliver this two minute long video for Vancouver advertising and design firm, St. Bernadine Mission Communications.

Earlier this year, St. Bernadine produced a project that was part technology, part digital / social experiment, part community art and part self promotion; the #ChinatownYVR Instagallery.

To help tell people about it, they knew they needed a piece that could clearly and quickly communicate goals, process and benefits in an engaging way.

And they needed it in very short order.

St. Bernadine provided me with thoughtfully planned storyboards and well organized artwork – a big plus with such a tight deadline. I was responsible for animation direction and production, as well as creating type elements and designing supporting elements and transitions throughout.

The resulting piece is clean and simple, with crystal clear messaging supporting the project’s submitted art and framework.


Never having worked with Sarah before, we weren’t really sure what to expect, but based on her reel, we knew we’d get something that felt fun, stylish and modern.

What she delivered, however, was much more than that. Sarah really engaged with the content and made the finished piece so much better than we had ever imagined. The few small changes we had were done quickly and efficiently, and Sarah worked above and beyond to make our deadline.

Overall, we couldn’t have been happier!
