John C. Taylor – Masterworks

3D Animation commissioned by the British inventor and world famous horologist, John C. Taylor to illustrate the story and workings of the world’d first pendulum clock, designed by Salomon Coster.

Together with my long time collaborator, Tony Lee, we painstakingly recreated a working 3D model, then set it against the historical backdrop of the time. Painstaking work. Tony did a fantastic job.
