24 Hour Film Racing 2012 - 1st Place in Denver!?
The One That Fell Off the Wall from Howarth Creative on Vimeo. UPDATE: For the time being, I have been asked to take down my video until after the final September 15th contest. Sorry. On May 18 - May 19 I participated in a 24 hour film competition hosted by 24 Hour Film Racing. Having sold the old camera to help pay for my recent move to Boulder, I decided to try my hand at animating in lieu...
Alex Pinto Trio - Many Mansions
I recently finished editing this video for my friend Alex Pinto of a performance he did way back in November at Viracocha in San Francisco. With the help of Tim Howarth and Tim Finn, we filmed Alex’s set with two Canon 7D’s for close ups and a Canon XH-A1 for the wide, as well as a Zoom Hn4 for the sound. Although the main goal of this shoot was to film the show, the challenge was...

Sphero Basics - An Interactive Video!
<p>Iframes are required to view this content.</p> Recently I’ve been working on several projects with a new tech start-up called FlixMaster. FlixMaster’s goal is to bring online video into the modern age by creating tools for users to make their videos seamlessly interactive for the audience. Think of how DVD’s work, with interactive menus and being...
The Deaf Pilots - Down in Flames - Music Video
Here’s a cool project my brothers (Jonathan Howarth and Tim Howarth) recently completed with a local band called The Deaf Pilots. My favorite thing about this video is the mixed use of motion-tracked CG with the grimy look of a “grind-house” type of film. Kind of a juxtaposition of old and new school films. It’s a good example of the professional level results an...
Canon 7D Slow Motion Test - Terrabang Studios
This is a video my brother Tim Howarth and friend Tim Finn of Terrabang Studios made to test out Twixtor. Twixtor is a plug-in you can get for certain video editing programs (they used After Effects) that enables you to simulate the type of slow motion footage you might get from a high speed camera. Below is what Tim Howarth posted on Terrabang about the project, or visit the original here. Finn...
Music of Sorts

THE MANIFESTATIONS OF RAY GALLE The original score to The Manifestations of Ray Galle was composed in a few days and performed and recorded entirely by Chris and Chris of Ray’s Apathy. There’s a strong theme...
2012 MLK Day of Song & Service
I edited this video when I worked for the Center for Music National Service to showcase the service day’s participants and events. Overall there were 10+ hours of footage that had to be made into a 3 minute video. The day was fun and inspiring! I strongly encourage people to get involved with their communities and dedicate time to volunteer in service. Also be sure to check out the Center...
East Bay 24 Hour Film Festival - 1st Place Baby!
This was team Robot Destroyer’s (myself and my buddy Chris D.) entry into Oakland’s 2011 East Bay Express 24 Hour Film Festival. The competition was to film and edit a 3 - 5 minute video in 24 hours while following specific guidelines and using props that were provided the day of the competition. We placed 1st, which was probably the happiest day of both of our lives. Equipment Used:...
Short Documentary from the Past
Robot Destroyer (my buddy Chris D. and I) spent 2 weeks with Medea Sirkas documenting this legendary San Francisco Bay Area dance group at Rock the School Bells 3 and Pro-Am International Hip Hop Conference in 2010. Equipment Used: Canon XL2, Sony Mini DV handheld camera someone loaned us
An Old Music Video
This is an early music video I made for a friend in Richmond, CA. The video isn’t that great because we had some missed communications in scheduling, so what was supposed to be a planning day for the video ended up being the day we shot everything. Although I’m not too psyched with how the video turned out, I do think it has some cool rotoscoping/CG effects. Equipment Used: Canon XL2
Random Videos I had a Part In
To get the blog posts rolling, here are some random videos I had some part in. This video was my brother’s, buddy Chris D.’s, and my entry for the 2009 HP You on You Commercial contest. We decided to enter the contest primarily to test out our new camera and try out some software. In the end, we didn’t win the grand prize, but we did manage to win an awesome new laptop!...
What is this?!
This is the start of the new Howarth Creative site, a project collective of video, music, and other fun things I may or may not have worked on! The old Howarth Creative site used to be an online portfolio specifically for web design. As times changed, so did the projects I focused on. I’ve since realized that I spend most of my projects working on video media and music. My intention for this site...
