This is my grading reel for the film, Higher Methods, from director Nathan Suher, which is currently in final post production.

Higher Methods is the story of Matthew, an actor whose sister went missing years prior. One day he’s at the movies and sees his sister as an extra who hasn’t aged a day. He embarks on a quest to find out what happens to her. He spirals down a rabbit hole into the dark, cultish world of drug addicts, freaks, the black sheep, the wannabe actors led by a menacing and intellectual acting mentor. As he attempts to uncover the mystery of his sister that went missing realities begin to blur in this sick twisted tale.

   


This is a teaser trailer for the upcoming film, Lady Muerte, from director Farah Evers. I performed the edit, color grade, VFX compositing and sound design. Looking forward to completing the film.

   


This is a short color grading reel with footage from the film Doll House, from Director Konstantin Selivanov, which is in submission to the 2018 festivals. For the film, I was brought on as editor, colorist, FX and compositor.


   


A short color grading reel. The original footage I used here is from the RED camera systems that were shot at 4K & 8K resolution. and then rendered at 1920x1080 for this reel. All the footage used is the property of their respective owners.


   


This project was for the James Madison Museum in Orange, Virginia for a new exhibit about slavery. It was designed to accommodate three vertically oriented flat panel screens, arranged in a U-shaped configuration, with the viewer’s standing in the middle, more or less, facing the center screen. All the talking head shots were taken on cell phones so there was considerable “cleanup” (both video and audio)to make them presentable. Most of the archival stills needed to be reconstructed in order to fit and fill the 16x9 vertically oriented screens. I was honored to be a part of making this exhibit come alive and would look forward to working on similar projects for other exhibits.


   

This was a quick end piece I did for an ad for Wayfair. The first video is the original raw footage with no sound or graphics. For the finished piece, I color graded and corrected the footage, added audio, and then composited their standard logo and created the spinning "X" and the drop-down tag.

   

   

I was recruited primarily as a colorist and assistant editor for a one hour documentary called Faith in the Big House from director Jonathan Schwartz at Interlock Media in Cambridge, MA., delivering the film to PBS affiliates for broadcast beginning fall 2014.
The following videos are :30/:60/2:30 promos in which I was editor, colorist and sound designer.


   



When designing the videos for the business school, the main focus was in creating stories that spoke to prospective students, telling them not only what any given program is about but to also give them a sense and a feel of the people, the culture and the support that they would experience while attending. I also delivered news stories about special events and VIP lectures. All these videos naturally tied into other channels of marketing for the school. Most of the sit-down interviews I lit and shot on green screen. In the edit, I chose a solid black background for the program pieces because it was clean and non-distracting, which created a better focus on the person speaking and allowed any text overlays to be easily read, especially if it was being viewed on small mobile devices.

Because of the target audience for the school, and because more and more people are consuming their video content on mobile devices, I leaned more towards designing and delivering for that target. In addition, by balancing high quality/manageable file sizes with technically correct assets for all CDN’s, the viewer can have a quality experience, whether they are watching on a smart phone or on their big screen TV.


   

   

The two videos for musician John Fannon (originally with the band New England) are promotional pieces for his new solo performances and album. The concert video promo was created as a medley of excerpts from footage of a static camera that was given to me to use. The client then wanted to add a colorful, animated group of musicians playing along with him, also used live onstage to project behind him,(as he plays all the instruments himself, accompanied with digital samples, during the live performances). I then shot John performing with individual instruments against a green screen and overlaid effects onto the keyed cuts.

The video for the single song, Just Run, was needed by the client as a way to quickly promote one of the songs on the new album on YouTube. I was given a photo that the client wanted to use to accompany the audio track. Even with a tight deadline of under two days, I wanted to give this piece more life than just a static image. After studying the elements in the photo, and in order to get the most impact in the time given, I decided that animating the water and creating a hanging sign with the name of the album would be the way to go. The original concept was to extend the environment of the 4x3 photo into the full 16x9 frame with a digital matte painting and additional static/animated elements.
