ICONOCLASH is a series in development. The series consists of short-form animated content pieces, that will be assembled fit-for-purpose, for broadcast, narrowcast, social, online and mobile, digital out of home, augmented reality and interactive print applications.
The pieces: segments, stories and narrative propositions; intend to ‘poke the bear’ and spur conversation, debate, reaction and interaction from every Australian. Controversial, sensitive and taboo topics are pragmatically ripped apart by a cast of hand drawn digital puppets who role-play, re-enact and re-imagine social conversations (small talk), expressions (social media) and interactions (groups and clubs) that might be happening right under our collective noses.
ICONOCLASH aims to explore:
How do we know what we know?
How do we think we know what we know?
How do we think we know what we think we know?
ICONOCLASH is possible due to Adobe CC particularly Adobe Character Animator.

Branding: Sam Maher
I wanted to create a new identity for my producing and writing activities. I went with postcards because I love receiving mail and with the rise of digital - rarely do; and then I augmented them. My business card I experimented with Aurasma and postcard with Layar.
