I'm a freelance video editor, sometimes videographer, working out of the Bay Area, California. I use Final Cut Pr, After Effects, DVD Pro, Illustrator, and more. I work well with clients to create a wonderful end project. In my free time I like to be outdoors, read and climb.

DIY or Hire A Professional?

Let’s not beat around the bush. At this point in our technology evolution, everyone has access to a decent camera. Whether the camera is a high grade DSLR or the latest iPhone, most people have the capability to shoot and edit their own videos. As a professional videographer, I won’t lie and say that this […]

Virtual Reality

I may have been absent from my website, but I have not been idle in “RL”. That’s “Real Life” for those who don’t know. Learning new skills and keeping up with the technological trends is a must in most industries. For me, getting excited about new camera specs is not high on my list, though […]

Self Portrait

My first crack at this challenge and my first ever self portrait, in all mediums. Self Portrait from Alexis Keenan on Vimeo. Starting the Dogwood 52 weeks of Photography challenge, but using video instead of photography as my medium.

Making Art

I did it again. I dropped the blogging ball. I am back and here to stay, for the next 52 weeks at least! Lately, as a business owner, I’ve found that I’ve been so bogged down with the day to day needs of my business that I have lost track of what propels me through […]

The power of networking!

In March I joined the networking group BNI. This is quite a step for me. Not only is it a solid commitment to my career, it also is a huge undertaking for my personality. Meeting new people is HARD! I love hearing different people’s stories about how they got where they are and where they […]
