Updated Demo Reel

Here’s an updated version of my Demo Reel.


Kinetic Post Internship

In December I started a part time internship with Kinetic Post. It’s a full service postproduction house in Southfield, MI.

Through this internship I learned Avid’s editing systems, improved my motion graphics skills,  gained more experience in a post-production house environment, and learned as much as I can from this awesome staff and facility. I was fortunate enough to work with this facility from December 13th, 2011 till March 31st, 2012. For more information on this excellent post-production house please visit their website.


Clarkston SCAMP Video

I was approached by a local non-profit group Clarkston SCAMP to make a video describing the program. For over thirty five years  Clarkston SCAMP has provided a five week summer camp for children and young adults with special needs. Throughout the year there have numerous fund raisers to help keep SCAMP affordable for the parents of these young people. Having worked as a student aide and volunteered for SCAMP in years past it was my pleasure to use my talents to help this great organization. It is my hope that this video will bring awareness to organizations like Clarkston SCAMP.

My duties on this projected included but were not limited to:

* Videographer/Photographer- Taking pictures/video of camp activities and SCAMP fundraising events.

*Editor- Both of my footage and other archive picture and video clips.

*Sound- Recording the narration and sound editing

*DVD Packaging.

The Izzos and EBLI Interview

 In Other News…

On September 28th, I worked with Green Sky Creative  filming a  promotional interview with Tom Izzo and his family regarding the  reading program EBLI.  On this interview shoot, I worked as an  additional grip and did electrical set up with the lights. I lent my T-3I camera  for the interview so that we could have three cameras going  simultaneously. While the cameras were rolling, I was the boom operator  and sound mixer to insure we had great audio on set.

Here’s the finished video below.

I filmed the Clarkston SCAMP Designer Showcase Workshops from September 26th- September 30th at K.H. Home in downtown Clarkston. I edited all of the Designer Showcase Segments and they’re currently scheduled to be aired on Clarkston Public Access.
