His portfolio of work includes the iconic James Bond ‘Skyfall’ title sequence, Coca-Cola ‘Siege,’ Lux ‘Neon Girl,’ Pepsi ‘Crowd Surfing’ and a mind blowing game trailer for DJ Hero. Diarmid is also a talented Director, having most recently produced the charming fully CG commercial for Three Mobile, ‘The Big Fish.’ As well as a distinguished VFX Supervisor, Jon Park is also one half of innovative directing duo White Rabbit - with his creative partner Grant White already a familiar face in the MPC studio. The duo direct animation, CG and live action, and have worked on a succession of acclaimed film projects for clients including Daft Punk, The Horrors and Nokia. MD Graham Bird said of the hires ‘We are delighted to welcome Diarmid and Jon to the team. Both are outstanding artists who are well placed to strengthen MPC’s VFX and directing talent. Jon has worked with MPC’s Motion Design studio in the past, directing a short film for the Daft Punk album launch at the Shard last year and it was clear he was a perfect fit for the team. Diarmid is renowned in the industry, working with high-profile directors on cutting-edge projects- needless to say we are thrilled that he is part of the team and there are already some exciting projects on the horizon.’

We were approached by Columbia records to direct a 3min clip for the Daft Punk (RAM) album launch at the top of the Shard on the 13th of May. The clip was screened on two large walls as well as various HD screens around the building as a mix of celebs and VIP's entered the venue. We worked closely with MPC London and the very talented Rupert Creswell, who created the clip from scratch in their Motion Graphics studio.

Here's our new video for Chad Valley feat Twin Shadow.. Enjoy “ We wanted to tell a story of lost youth. Reflect back to the age when you felt like you were invincible. A take on those classic 70’s and 80’s movies but set in 2013” says the pair. In the film a small group of teens break into a bowling alley at night, and once inside they make sure they have a night like no other. White rabbit create a modern day universe reminiscent of those found in cult 80’s teen classics. With creativity, the duo tackles the often restrictive budgets for promos, delivering a stylish and beautiful piece. Somewhat suitably the shoot took place in the very bowling alley used in Superman 3, with the decor almost unchanged since the iconic film. The directors hired Director of Photography Gabi Norland for her elegant lighting and imaginative eye and by using set and art direction they created a nostalgic, atmospheric world which references other tales of young age, such as Buffalo 66 and The Virgin Suicides.
