That’s not the only way Lee stays busy. Animator by day and drummer by night, he combined his dual passions in this pixel-heavy video for Bro. Warning - Lee and his bandmate JD Harding skipped the costume select screen.
Retro gaming fans will appreciate the odes to Streets of Rage, Grand Theft Auto, and Out Run. Meanwhile, Lee ensures the on-screen action matches the restless track. Always good to do your drum beat justice, eh?
Lee’s video game influences can be found elsewhere. His Vimeo Staff Pick ‘Life Without Stuff’ is shot from an isometric perspective, giving viewers the ideal vantage point as everyday objects evaporate.
The end result feels like a cheat code has been activated. At the mercy of Lee’s clicking finger, these blank-faced denizens endure everything from faceplants to an unfortunate space walk. Lee’s wry spin on the ‘simple life’ demonstrates his playful touch.
Promos and short films are just the beginning. Lee’s commercial reel is gathering pace, but there’s always room for more. NERD believe Lee is now in the right place to further his TVC career.
