Examples of my work with After Effects

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 […]

Traveling and Landscapes

Sometimes a break from the City is very important. Nature helps me to recharge, relax and absorb what is really important: Myself! I mean that with all seriousness. If we don’t focus on keeping our minds and bodies fresh everything suffers; work, relationships, and above all creativity! Without my ability to bring a fresh mind […]

Head Shot

I have not forgotten, nor have I been idle. The way of life says that once you begin projects of your own, other work floweth. Additionally, I decided to enter a small film contest, so much of my spare time went to the entry. However, I was able to shoot the footage for Week 4: […]

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 […]

For Broadcast

Well, I did my first ever commercial for broadcast TV. It was a really fun project and quite the ride as it came in as a rush job. Lots of ideas flying around and alterations and late nights. I really enjoyed the experience and the new people I met along the way. Broadcast has it’s […]

Happy New Year!

2015! Where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday I was quitting my job and jumping into freelancing full time. Like many, during this month I tend to reflect on the last year and see the ups and downs and ways to change for the better. There are always faults to find and […]

A Year Later

It’s been a long time since the last post and I really need to be better. I’m going to make this something I focus on. At least one post a month should happen. It’s been a busy year. It began with the Detroit International Auto Show in January. I joined with Voix Productions to shoot […]

Weddings

Summer is around the corner and I’ve entered into the world of wedding videography. This is something that I never actively sought out and mostly avoided. However when I received a call from a fellow videographer that I’d met on a shoot only days before I decided to see what this niche had to offer. […]

Certifications

I’ve been looking at various certification programs. I’m going to begin by getting certified as A.C.E. for Photoshop and then go for After Effects. Photoshop first, because I see it as a good base for After Effects and because I happened upon a very reasonably priced certification prep program. I’m excited about this venture. In […]
