"Groundbreaking 'playable TV.'" - Apple

 

During my two years as an in-house Creative at Playdeo I worked as a part of the team behind Avo - the interactive story of Billie, a young inventor, and the avocado she brings to life. Set in a playable world, Avo melds the magic of games and live-action TV using innovative technology and dynamic editing.

 

Involved in the project from pre-production through to launch, I had the pleasure of editing the live-action footage in the game and producing and editing our behind the scenes film, Making of Avo.

As part of the release of Avo, I really enjoyed producing Making of Avo to showcase the efforts of the team and tell the story of how the project came to be - from early prototypes to global launch. 


Avo was named Apple’s Game Of The Day, and nominated for Beazley's Design Of The Year on its release, winning millions of players and friends worldwide.
