One of my friends connected me to the awesome people at LaunchSquad who wanted a video with character animation. I learned so much during this project and had loads of fun puting together the character rigs and animation.

A few months ago, I built this animation, and a few others, for a music and food event at Mighty SF. The event was aimed at being a proof of concept for a massive collaboration of different types of artists.

I worked on this short film for a few months after being contacted by the director for the film. I designed and implemented the cybernetic eye for the main character as well as some simple compositing help.
The first video is a short breakdown for how I built and setup the cybernetic eyes. This is based off a video game released a few years back called Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

My friend and I created this in hopes to better understand working with Cinema 4D with After Effects integration and using multipass rendering. He ended up doing the sound for me after I provided him the final motion.
The project took only a week to put together but I learned so much from doing it I decided it had to have a spot in my public portfolio.
Short video made for futuresoundsclassic.com, a site where music videos are aggregated. This project called for a simple bumper to be used at the end of some of their promotional material.
A quick video promotion I did for a mobile gaming app where you spell words as they drop.

A four month project I helped my friends complete which helps you record your dreams. The app allows users to create alarms through a normal week. Once an alarm goes off, it will transcribe any dream by speaking to the app. Afterwards, users may search around the globe to see what others are dreaming, and if they are dreaming the same things.

In the beginning of the year, my friend Levi made a short film intended for a 'disposable cameras' film festival. He came to me looking for a simple title sequence which would help his film stand out. Because the story is about a lost phone, I made the sequence seem as if it was taken from the device's viewfinder.
Every year, Chase hosts a Banking event where retail employees join together to learn about new products coming down the pipeline from R&D groups. This video was created in colloboration with Camp Creative, in order to show off a concept for a future Chase Banking application.

In order to prove my abilities in motion, a potential employer wanted me to create a demo. The guidelines were simple; take an app you don't like and add two navigational elements not used or rarely seen in mobile. Over the next two days I found an app which needed improving, conceptualized basic UI elements, and created this simple demo showing two methods of navigating I thought were unique.
