About US

NOCTURNAL3D, A Full Service Digital production Agency.

My name is Samuel Wheeler. I started in the industry as an Animator working on contracts for Walt Disney Television. These days I work toward creating fun, original content for you to enjoy. Stories that have a unique perspective, both artistic and entertaining.

Reflective of my own oddball personality. Come on down the rabbit hole Alice! We have such sights to show you!

I understand the importance of editing. In the edit suite it is the final part of the process with creating a story. Films may change from mediocrity to masterpiece and it can all happen in a dark, quiet room, months after camera's have finished capturing the action.
Another essential part of the film making process, sound is incredibly important. If the picture is a bit rough but the sound is well designed and clear, then the audience will accept the scene, but if the picture is clear but you can't hear what anyone is saying, or it's too muffled, too flat, too loud, too distorted... it is unforgivable. Poor sound is the first sign of an amatuer production.
I have experience in both line animation and taught CGI animation. Working on Timon and Pumba, Tex Tinstar, Pith Possum, Redux Riding Hood, The Quack Pack, and Petals through the ninetees gave me an insight into traditional line animation. Developing my own skills in Maya and Max earned me a position teaching CGI animation and expanded my skillset into game development.
Case Study

Documentary Films.

Currently I am producing two documentary films. The New Zealand Burlesque Festival Documentary and The Living Canvas, which is about the New Zealand Body Art Showcase Legends both international superstars and local champions.

Game Developement.

Currently I am developing a game to go with the film release of Earth To Icarus. I develop my games using the unreal game engine, ZBrush and 3DS Max. The game uses designs and story arcs from the film.
