Here’s a collection of some of my favorite projects that I have worked on over the years.
I edited this video 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. Equipment Used: Canon 7D, Canon XH-A1, Zoom H4n
FILM FESTIVAL - 1ST PLACE
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: Canon 7D
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
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
OTHER RANDOM VIDEOS I HAD A 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! Equipment Used: Canon XL2
Another video made with my brother and Chris D. This trailer represents our first attempt to make a short film. It didn’t really turn out well, but we definitely learned a lot. My part in this was sound, animation, and music (that’s my Arcade Fire rip-off song you hear in the trailer). I’m particularly proud of my flying Loch Ness Monster animation you see at 0:12. Equipment Used: Canon XL2, Rode NTG-2 Shotgun Mic
I must have l00’s of other videos that I’ve worked on over the years, but I feel like these particular projects best represent where most of my experience comes from. Thanks for watching!
