This was a controversial community service campaign I produced for Parkinson's NSW. Garnered lots of positive publicity. The campaign won a Gold Promax award in New York and I personally received a certificate of thanks from Rashida Ali. Many thanks and much love to the good people who gave of their time and allowed me to film them whilst in the the throes of this terrible afflication.
Oone of the Lost Girl series launch promos. At the time we had no show footage, so we shot this to give viewers a sense of what was coming.
Starring Ken Sparkle, shot by Kym Vaitiekus, Ken's voice by the awesome Kev Golsby. Ken and sets by Pluto Productions. Produced by me during my days at Nick at Nite Australia. Many thanks to my inspirational and ever encouraging creative director/mentor/friend, Niels Schuurmans.
If I could only take one of my own promos to a desert island (why??) this would be it. Graphics & animation by Tony Melov, voiced by the awesome Kev Golsby. Produced during my days at Nick at Nite Australia.
Design & Animation by Tony Melov. Voice by the great Matt Ponsonby.
My beautiful wife, Kathy, gave me the idea for this, one night when I was struggling for inspiration. She said "why don't you make a promo with lots of cows" BANG! I was out the next day at a dairy farm, photographing a bounty of bovines. Graphics & animation by Tony Melov & Jerel Smith, sung by me, during the early days of Nick Australia. This promo used to start the day's transmission of Nickelodeon, after Nick at Nite. Many thanks to my inspirational and ever encouraging creative director/mentor/friend, Niels Schuurmans.
Some of my Promo handiwork.
