Royal Family Kids Camp Overview

Royal Family Kids is a five-day resident camp for abused, neglected and abandonded kids. At camp we provide these kids with positive experiences that will change their lives. Things such as “Everyone’s Birthday”. So often our kids have had bad or forgotten birthdays that shape how they see them themselves—unimportant. We want them to know how amazing and special each one of them are and this is one way we do it! Each child has their own cake, ice cream, presents, and there are games and fun activities too! Sometimes even special guests!

Discover Wisconsin Audition

During open auditions to host the Discover Wisconsin tv series, I was given the opportunity to help a young woman give a try at her chance of fame. For this production I did it all: script, location scouting, producing, directing, audio engineer, camera operator, and post production. As there were over 4,000 entries, sadly she was not chosen; however, we had a blast with this project.

Corporate Video

This corporate video was a blast to work on. It challenged me to work within very strict branding guidelines, so it forced me to get creative in how to tell the story visually. I didn’t want just a bunch of talking heads and full screen video, so I spent a lot of time in After Effects creating motion graphic bricks that I could change on the fly. This allowed me to reuse the elements in various spots but change the content within the graphics. I also wanted to keep the viewer engaged throughout, which is difficult with dry content such as a corporate video, so I used a lot of fast moving graphic elements and short screen times so the user wouldn’t feel bored.

LIFEST 2014 Friday Recap Video

This is a major fast-paced, sleepless assignment. There is a small team of video and still shooters that run around the grounds filming everything from bands, grounds and campers to the art tent, petting zoo and seminars. We take countless hours and still and create a daily recap video to be played just before the headliner. I am responsible for motion graphics, music selection, animations, camera operator, lighting, voice work and video editing.
