AACR Cancer Research PSA

This year I was privileged enough to work on the following spot for Cancer awareness. I think this spot looks great, Director Ron Laskodi from CCFV creates a few simple shoots and makes them look absolutely gorgeous.

AACR President Frank McCormick, Ph.D., FRS, D.Sc. (Hon.) talks about the importance of funding cancer research before Stand Up To Cancer's nationally televised fundraising event Sept. 12, 2012.

Mike Oeming’s The Victories

Check out this awesome teaser trailer made by yours truly and others for my buddy's comic.  Mike Oeming's The Victories drops August 15 so check it out at your local comic shop.

Not long from now, all that will stand between you and evil are the Victories—six heroes sworn to protect us from crime, corruption, and the dark. As one member cracks down on the violence, he discovers himself touched by a painful past through the psychic powers of Link. Will this trauma cause him to self-destruct or continue the fight?

Had a blast working with director Mark Schey on this one.  There were a couple tricky shots to clean-up but I don't think you'll ever notice.

Bed Bugs- a brief history

This project started in the summer for me, but it wasn't released until just now- I edited the rough for the entire piece, but the opening I helped to create remains as is. Working with many people closely at CCFV and working closely with the producers and clients helped make this so cool. The opening section for a longer PSA with ten tips to preventing getting the dreaded pests (featured here). Enjoy--

Dr. Miracles

A fun series of spots I edited for the Dr. Miracles brand.  I believe the strategy was to run the :15 for a while, then follow it up with the :30 that references the :15.  A neat strategy in my mind.  Please enjoy them in that order-

Catching up–

Catching up a bit here from a very busy summer.  Here is a piece I did with the folks at CCFV for History Channel.com.  Using sources from all over the History Channels' library of footage, the job was to integrate graphics into this piece and make it all work together as seamlessly as possible.  Basically this short piece will tell you all the basic facts about the Battle of the Alamo in one short go.

This next spot is deceptively simple looking and employs several layers to erase signage and make the transitions from each focal length more seamless. It aired in Delaware movie theaters in an effort to discourage DUI. This piece was also made in conjunction with the stellar folks at CCFV.
