SDES IT: Training Video Series Introduction

Once the SDES IT Training site idea took off, I was asked to develop an introduction to play before each video series; I was told to “think of it as branding,” but because the video clips were hidden from the public, I sprinkled in a bit of creativity to bring something to the typical, non-technical, and often overly-comfortable end-user that they wouldn’t expect, in the hopes of waking them up and making them think. It was eventually widdled down to an ineffectual, five-second clip.

The (original) introduction above was shot entirely on UCF campus and edited in Premiere Pro, with compositing effects done in After Effects.

Enginehead: DJ Dr. Thunder (April Fools Video)

One day at the Sentinel, I pitched an idea for a joke video about my busted, old Civic for an April Fools joke. One weekend I took home one of the Canon’s and shot a bunch of ridiculous footage of me in aviators acting like a caricature of the typical interviewee in our weekly videos. I followed the workflow as closely as I could, creating a photo gallery, a video, a fact sheet, and a billboard image. Our marketing team got an ad buy from Honda to correspond with the video post, and we launched the video on April 1, 2008.

The video was shot with a Canon GL1 and captured and edited in Premiere Pro. Graphics within the video were created in Illustrator and Photoshop.

Enginehead: Video Intro Slate

Our introduction slate for all Enginehead.com videos was pretty outdated, so I offered to do a new one with newer footage from our videos. This was the result! Pretty happy with it. Video arranged and edited in Premiere.

Orlando Sentinel: Enginehead Interview Videos

As part of my position at the Orlando Sentinel’s interactive group, I was tasked with creating a weekly interview-style montage video of a local car enthusiast and his pride and joy. In most cases, I was responsible for: recording the footage of the car, B-roll of the car driving, and the interview; micing the interviewer and capturing the audio; photographing the car and the individual for a photo gallery to accompany the video; identify the 10-15 best photos, edit them, and post them to the Orlando Sentinel’s CMS; and capture the audio and video, edit it together on an Avid or Final Cut machine, and post the video to the CMS.

I have many examples of this work: here are some links to the above-mentioned material.

All video was edited in Avid, Final Cut Pro, or Premiere Pro. All photos were edited in Photoshop.
