This piece is a short ident used at the head of video trailers for forthcoming NavPress books, similar to short animations you see for production companies at the start of movies. Faceout Studio created the concept with NavPress and delivered boards to animate from. Fluid simulation was done in Blender, before exporting a mesh into Cinema4D, where it was textured, lit, retimed and rendered. Compositing and motion graphics were done in After Effects. Original music and sweetening were done by Guy Baker at Digital One.

This spot began post production down in L.A. at Bob Industries before coming up to Mission Control, where I performed revisions, recut to new music and did a little comp’ing in After Effects before sending it off to color grading with Jake Buff in Apple Color. The spot was shot on a Canon 5D at 720/59.94 and conformed to 23.98fps before being edited in Final Cut Pro. Audio sweetening was done by the guys down at Digital One.

About Me:
Above all else, I am a tinkerer. Plain and simple.

Whether it was the broken toaster when I was five, or my first car when I was 16, I have always reveled in the simple and satisfactory act of making things work. It’s an art as much as it is a process, simultaneously satisfying both hemispheres of my brain.

Some pieces might call for Avid or Final Cut, some for After Effects or Cinema4D, and others, a hammer.

Depending on the task, I assume the role of editor, or animator, designer or programmer. I chisel, and hone, and polish.
