You have an awesome new product. A game-changing app. A revolutionary idea. A message that will make the world better, safer, healthier, cleaner.

Whatever you've got... Get your passion out there! Through a marriage of design and animation, my mission is to make whatever it is YOU do look it's best, inducing that lightbulb-above-the-head,"AHA!" moment that turns viewers into buyers, believers, and supporters.

Fun, efficiency, clarity, honesty, dedication, and passion. That's my approach. Intrigued? Flabbergasted? Skeptical? Or maybe... have an idea for a video you'd like created? Get in touch below!

ZFS STORAGE APPLIANCE

The assignment: conjure a badass illustration of how businesses can run faster and IT operations can be more streamlined with the right storage.

The result: my biggest solo production to date (I served as lead designer, animator, and audio editor), rock'n roll, motorcycles...
oh, and the latest generation of Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance, the ZS3 Series.

Storyboards

An excellent exercise in complete content creation and design process (from concept through production), this video was my undergraduate senior thesis project as a Digital Design major in the college of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati.

My goal was to alter the perception of exercise: mainly, that simple, daily lifestyle choices outside of a typical fitness program can add up to great benefits over time. This video was one proposed aspect of an educational YMCA campaign that featured educational materials in YMCA lobbies. The Clifton Melrose Branch in Cincinnati, OH was used as a case study.

This animation piece was a great opportunity for me to step up my design and animation creativity at CPR.

I gave our summer intern, Tyson Wischerath, a shot at the storyboarding helm for this animated whiteboard piece. Under client request to follow a style I developed in a previous video, I acted as Creative Director for both design and concepting.

Tyson did a great job following the style, and after only a few small critique sessions, I took control as Lead Animator through completion.

SAP: CUSTOM BUILT

Challenged by a client freshly rebranded and a timeframe of less than two weeks, this project was a collaboration of three. I served as Lead Animator, bringing storyboards to life and making necessary changes along the way.

SOLARIS: 20th ANNIVERSARY

[ studio ] - CPR
[ client ] - Oracle

[ role ] - Lead Animator
Assistant Designer

This video is first of two completed in an insanely rushed 3-week deadline (yep, that's all we had for both videos). Let's back up: Oracle came to CPR in total desperation to deliver two eye-popping, 3-minute+ animations to be played as show openers for Oracle SPARC's 25th Anniversary and Oracle Solaris' 20th Anniversary events... not exactly a flexible deadline.

As lead animator on the job, I burnt many a midnight candle and had dreams of After Effects... but had a blast watching the recorded reactions of the event crowd a few days after delivery. Not before a couple days of sleep, that is.

SPARC: 25th ANNIVERSARY

[ client ] - Oracle

[ role ] - Lead Animator
Assistant Designer

Second of two videos completed in only 3 weeks, this animation opened the Oracle SPARC 25th Anniversary event in November 2012.

To cut time, a team of two separated design and animation - I served as lead animator, living and breathing After Effects for a solid week... but watching the recorded reactions of the event crowd a few days after delivery was so worth it.

Animated pitch for the University of Cincinnati's Digital Design DAAPWorks senior show branding identity (Spring 2011). The branding, design, and concept were created within a team of 7 other classmates.

The "We Are" concept speaks to the diversity of the Digital Design major, and the individuals that put a face behind the broad spectrum of all that is digital design.

Host For Good is a new movement to help anyone throw an event for charities with "Events in a Box." It's good for goodness' sake!

I had the opportunity to bring this concept to life with animation from the ground up - from script writing to design and production of the entire animation. I had a lot of fun working with Torsten Gross, one of the innovators who founded the non-profit... and "Joe" will always hold a place in my heart :)
