VIDEO & AFTER EFFECTS
The language of today's communications is in multimedia. Campaigns, branding, promotions, et al, are prepared mostly for social media and websites. I have worked in Adobe's After Effects to create material that reaches across a wide breadth of viewers from various demographics. Here are samples of my animation efforts.
Diamond Teeth Mary - Bessie Smith’s Half-Sister Who Became a Legend of Her Own
International Trade Mission - Infographic
Oasis VSS Registration Explainer Video
WVDNR - Intro Screen
Animation Examples -
State Parks - Lower Third Animations
State Parks of the Week
Explaining Roundabout Traffic Patterns
These films are shown in their entirety to give the viewer a sense of pacing and technique. These were edited with Adobe After Effects.
