A FILM IS--OR SHOULD BE--MORE LIKE MUSIC THAN LIKE FICTION. IT SHOULD BE A PROGRESSION OF MOODS AND FEELINGS. THE THEME, WHAT'S BEHIND THE EMOTION, THE MEANING, ALL THAT COMES LATER
Some segments in my portfolio include parts of five documentaries I've created so far, three of which were broadcast on PBS. This ad focuses on my latest, The Legacy of the Land, which was narrated by Chris Sarandon and can be found on PBS Streaming.
These films are shown in their entirety to give the viewer a sense of pacing and technique. These were edited with Adobe After Effects.

Silver Bridge 50th
Stephanie Skolik is a retina surgeon & a talented artist. Because of her specialty, she makes her art accessible to those who are sight impaired.
The Silver Bridge collapsed in 1967. This video was
made for a function honoring its memory. Each dove represents the number of lives lost in the tragedy.
Another friend asked me if I would help him to market himself as a bodybuilder and fitness model. This is the first of three planned videos to accomplish that task.
A Variety of Subject Matter
From documentaries to commercials, my work is diverse in style and tailored to the needs of the project.
Video is the preferred new communication, and I speak it in a variety of languages. Whether the somber tone of a documentary about the American Civil War, a humorous documentary about road construction, an advertisement for a breakthrough product, or an information video about the Interstate Highway system, my particular style is to let the content steer the tone.
These and other works seen in reel portfolio above.
