MUSIC COMPOSITION / SOUND DESIGN
Sound is 60% of what you watch. Whether it is as simple as mixing VO or creating original music every production needs sound design to some degree. Having a background in music and recording brings me a great advantage to your edit. Understanding how to read an audio wave form will always make for a faster edit and utilizing tools such as Logic and Reason, I can quickly lay out edit or design custom audio for your projects.
"Every shoot needs a great editor, preferably fast". I have enjoyed the role of video editor for 15 + years, my favorite thing about editing is that it is the place where we finish the job and give a great show, best it can be. I love how video editing is the place where all of my interests get to take stage in showcase. One weaves enthusiastically into another and editing is its final stop before anyone else gets to see.
"I started studying Motion Graphics before I even started editing video, ages ago back in 2001 when flash was owned by macro media, and after effects was 5.0" Motion Graphics is a great place for me as an artist, I get to make awesome vector art or composites and then bring it in and bring to life, totally satisfying the creator in me, giving me an awesome feeling when its a job well done and a client loves the work. My years of experience in animation make me fast and efficient, with solid work flows established for most motion graphic videos needs.
3D MODELING & ANIMATION
"when it comes to making it up, 3D is the best thing that ever happened to me" I don't dream in 2D , in fact every vision I have ever had creatively has tons of depth and dimension. I started with Autodesk Maya back in 2005 and I haven't looked back. I love 3D, modeling & animating, I hate UV layout lol jking kinda.. but I am good at it, I prefer painting textures, but hey its all part of the job of creating great looking models. 3D composting and 3D tracking have been the newest additions to my skill set, a challenging but rewarding skill.
"oohhh rotoooo.." All the greatest effects scenes happen in the merger of film footage and CGI media today start with a good track and super tight spot on rotoscoping. As a person who is passionate about creating visually stimulating and memorable scenes, it is a skill I cannot live with out.
