Viking Screams

A short Project filmed on my lunch break.

I was asked by Kenko to help out with a small project.

We grabbed a couple models for Too Much Metal Fred and headed to a rooftop. Everything shot on just an iPhone6+ for the high frame rate. Kenko handled the editing and pacing

I handled the filming and D.I.T. duties.

It was shot and the footage was delivered for editing within an hour. Not bad for a lunch break.

Verlo Mattress

A project completed for Verlo Mattresses in Milwaukee WI. I was given assets filmed by NonBox and believe they were recorded on a canon c-300 and edited in FCPX and MOTION 5.  The reasons why it wa done in motion was most of the motion graphics I had created as templates that can be easily changed out or substituted should the products change or text needs to be changed etc.

Much of the footage needed to be white balanced and color corrected to work better with the scenes.

In addition to this project I was responsible for creating assets for projection based media in their flagship store.

Using the Rigid mask tracker in after effects

If you are like me, theres lots of times where you may be running and gunning or editing footage of someone else out in the field, and when you sit down with it need to remove certain information etc.

In the past I would mask things by hand or even jump into mocha and start tracking things across time, when I would have the tracking points fail me in After effects.

But the new Mask tracker feature in After Effects lets me mask quickly and easily so I can spend more time on my actual edit instead of cleaning up the footage and getting it ready to edit.

Heres a video I put together showing how the Rigid mask tracker works in After effects, but note that in the late 2014 release of Premiere Pro, we have this same tool availble saving you time in round tripping and creating extra Ae Compositions.
