Elliot Blanchard not only thinks outside of the box, he creates work that reflects his ability to turn bold ideas into reality. Whether he is creating traditional ads, unique motion design, interactive work or short films, his work has the uncanny ability to both create and satisfy curiosities you didn’t even know you had.
He’s turned the human voice into wearable art for an event at Oracle; his first app “VR Loops” helps users create their own virtual reality worlds, which can be shared via animated GIF, and his immersive 360 visual experience for HP, which debuted at the Panorama Music Festival, brought thousands of festival goers on a journey through time and space in a 69 foot dome.
Whether Elliot is working within two or three dimensions, everything he touches ignites awe, joy and amazement, morphing the role of passive viewer into active participant. The animated shorts he recently helmed for Barney’s acclaimed Holiday Windows were alive with graphic splendor, using traditional animation, throwback CG, and vintage analog effects to draw passersby into a kaleidoscopic holiday dance of peace, love and joy.
Elliot has worked for clients such as MTV, IBM, Vitamin Water, GE and Unicef. He has been featured worldwide, and has appeared in Communication Arts, The Creators Project, The Today Show, Architectural Digest, Vogue, Animation World Network, Make, South By Southwest, The Palm Springs International Film Festival, WeTheUrban, and Elektro.
After establishing Invisible Light Network, a motion design, interactive, and installation project studio, Elliot chose to move forward in his career with the goal of forging a next generation content studio; soon after, he co-founded Prism with Partner and EP Tom Rossano.
