on September 20th, 2013 in Portfolio by | No Comments

Because being a web-based “motivation, engagement, and incentive” provider is a hard concept to grasp right off the bat, when I was the marketing manager at Perks.com, I created a series of web videos to help explain and illuminate the Perks value proposition. This is the hero video, the masthead….

Legacy Capital Group Presentation Animation

on September 20th, 2013 in Portfolio by | 1 Comment

  Back in 2005, I did a lot of work for Legacy Capital Group, creating their website(s), PowerPoint presentations, letterhead and business cards.

When it came time to make a book trailer for my novel, The Twelve-Fingered Boy, both my publisher and I decided that I could do a better job than probably anyone they could hire. So I created this one myself. The thing about book trailers is that most of them are terrible…

I did this animation at my last job using AfterEffects. We didn’t have Trapcode’s Particular plugin, at the time, and so I used AfterEffect’s built in particle system. Slaved the emitter to a null object, set up a camera in the virtual space, and animated the null object all over…

Arkansas Virtual Tour – Flash

on March 8th, 2012 in Portfolio by | No Comments

I did this Flash piece a couple of years ago back at my old job, before the iPad and Apple and Steve Jobs killed Flash as a viable profession for me. But look where it got Steve. Anyway, this was a great project, if daunting. While I was doing it,…

on October 11th, 2011 in Portfolio by | No Comments

I did this animation for my day job, in hopes of convincing MySurvey users to not opt for check or cash but to go with eCertificates. The art was simply stock illustrations we bought from iStockPhoto that I broke into component pieces and animated. Usage of Amazon.com logos and imagery…
