Gerber Initial Thoughts

Welcome to NERD! We love your quirky, colourful, tactile and fun creative. It ticks all our NERDy boxes and we also have a perfect NERD to bring this to life too!

Shay Hamias is a fiercely talented, award-winning Director who specialises in a range of your reference styles. He can bring your creative to life in a stylised and organically elegant way.Shay is uniquely progressive in his use of compositing techniques, and frequently adapts and combines different animation approaches such as, cut out photo style, contemporary illustration, stop motion and mixed media with a strong sense of overall design. He loves playing with new styles and approaches and incorporating fresh ideas into narratives with cool transitions.
Below are just a few examples for you that range in visual style but are all using the same approach in terms of treating live action elements with tactile watercolours to bring stories to life.

He enjoys championing and supporting our young talent during production as well as teaming up with various talent of different disciplines to push creative boundaries even further.
Those are often our most fun projects! Same can be said for pairing live action elements with animation. He does love to shake things up and give them a premium, glossy finish.

Our collaborative attitude is not something we practice internally, NERDs also work closely with our clients too from the early development stages of production to create a bespoke look & feel for the brand, something instantly recognisable! We are flexible in our workflows to ensure highest creative quality output on each one of our carefully crafted films. Our production is all in house from start to finish ensuring end result is something we can all together be proud of.

We are proud diversity and inclusion advocates as we feel very strongly about bringing diversity to our industry. We are all a set of people from different walks of life, various backgrounds and believe that all our differences make us a stronger, creative community.
