New demo reel! Take a look at some things I have been up to, and enjoy!
This one has a bunch of projects I have been a part of over the past few years since my last reel. My role has ranged from 3D modeling to director & producer.

All Chase logos, simulated app images, app concept designs, are all owned by JPMorgan Chase & Co. Do not create derivatives, copies, or recrations of any of the simulated Chase app images within this demo reel.
A collection of gifs I have made to either remind me of an interesting visual design, motion production, or an event in my life.
Collection will be updated periodically. Visit sterndevon.tumblr.com for up-to-date gifs!
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.
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.

Full Cast and Crew credits:
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.

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.
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.
A guided out of box experience tour to help the user understand a mobile payments application for iOS.
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.
Role: 3D modelling, 3D animation mattes, 2d on-screen animations
Timeline: 2 Weeks
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.
I created a bunch of visuals years back for a privite bay area event where thousands of people play dodgeball. The video was projected onto a large screen behind the DJ stage at the event near Berkeley, CA. I was responsible for 3D visuals and effects timed to music.
Ever since I saw this famous image, I needed to make a super clean poster.
Audrey's beauty inspired me to pull ideas from the fashion world.
This image was printed on .5mm woven canvas and was given to a residence in Northern California in 2012.
