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….

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…

Silver Dollar City 50th Anniversary Logo Animation

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

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…
