A creative studio of one.
A rare blend of technical knowledge and creative leadership allows me to direct productions and make them.
I learned quickly how important it was to have an explicit understanding of your craft. Through my career, I nurtured that insatiable urge to learn more and pursued a variety of skill sets. As a result, I am in a unique position where I can both create the story and deliver it.
At the core of every great story lies vision and craft. Creativity doesn’t materialize out of a void though. I firmly believe it takes a concerted effort, candor, and curiosity to arrive at the core story of every project. By asking questions and learning about your brand I develop strategy driven creative.
One the most effective ways to communicate complex ideas is through animation. The nature of format requires objects to be distilled to their most compelling forms. Above all, I strive to design rich environments and charismatic characters guided by the 12 principles of animation. Whether its motion graphics explainers, cel animation, or 3D product demos - animation is one of the core services I provide.
Editorial & Post
A great story without great delivery falls flat. Great editing locks your attention on what is important and guides you through the narrative. This along with things like music, VFX, voice over, and color timing are critical to the success of projects - and are a fundamental part of my projects.
Modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering sit comfortably in my tool belt thanks to my focus in college on computer animation. It's my secret weapon for creating photorealistic projects ranging from animation, product renderings, VR/AR assets, and visual effects.
Color grading offers another opportunity to weave the artistic choices into the narrative. But making a shot look beautiful is equal parts artistry and arithmetic. Leaning on my technical degree and years of experience helps me wade through the deep waters of color science to ensure every shot lives up to its potential.
We stand at an exciting time for filmmaking. Immersive experiences such as mixed reality challenge our expectations of what storytelling looks like while new distribution platforms pop up every week. I am constantly evolving my skill sets to include innovative technology, taking clients along for the ride into exciting new mediums.
