Since virtually everything I've been working on lately is confidential, or something that my position  in the production was not directly involved with either shooting and/or editing, I either am not permitted to post it, or it wouldn't be reflecting any of my personal skills. So I'll just post a little video I did for fun instead.

Into The Woods - St. Andrew's School - Live Performance - Trailer

Another fun performance by the students of St. Andrew's School. Into The Wood.

  With the exception of operating Camera 2 (Nick Kane) I did everything else: editing (including footage from the next evening's performance to cover up a major gaff in the production), DVD authoring, and production of all accompanying artwork.

Wedding Invitation Animation

This is a little something special I like to do for the couples for whom I produce their wedding video -- a little animation made from their own wedding invitation, to include in their wedding day video presentation on DVD.

Two previous animations may be seen in my 2014 reel, but this is my most ambitious to date, though it's actually simple. The ambitious part came in the cutting out of virtually every asset on the invitation, and connecting an appropriate animation with it. The happy couple really enjoyed it so, mission accomplished :)
As always, it's best to watch this as large as possible.

In the true production, this is set to the song "Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)" by Frank Sinatra. YouTube blocked the music and so I found a reasonably suitable musical piece from their free collection.

My Newest Reel

Rather than being the typical quick view of video clips with a bed of music, this reel also includes descriptions of what I've done in each production instance, including a fairly comprehensive outline of my wedding video service.

Flying Eyeball

That's about the size of it.  I drew all of the individual parts of the creature on blank index cards, using coloured pencils; scanned them; opened them up in Photoshop and trimmed them.  I probably should've drawn out two different wings to give it more, but it was just for the sake of doing a little animation practice so I just duplicated the one and mirrored it for the other side.  Then I animated each part, in After Effects, using the Puppet Warp Tool on the talons and tail.

The music is by Claude Debussy, and borrowed from www.museopen.org
with full permission, as all of the music there is in the public domain.

As usual, you'll get more enjoyment from this video if you click on the little FULL SCREEN icon, situated between the Vimeo logo, and HD, at bottom, right of the screen.

GREASE Is the Word!

St. Andrew's School, in Barrington, RI performed the original stage play GREASE by Jim Jacobs & Warren Casey, hiring me as videographer.

Jason Zhao, a student at St. Andrew's assisted me with second camera.

Afterward I did all editing, both full version and the trailer (below), titles, FX compositing, DVD authoring.
