Video and Animation

City of Albuquerque Bike to Work Day

In May 2019 I made a commercial for the City of Albuquerque’s annual Bike to Work Day TV. I used Adobe After Effects for this project and it took a week to make versions for the different time slots.

First I found a song then planned how to make everything move to the song. I made sure that there were many movements happening in tandem to give the viewer the feeling of moving with the cyclist. I based the map at the end on actual routes in the city. I also edited the voice over in Adobe Audition and added it to the compositions.

Fit Mix App Promo

Fit Mix contracted me to make them an Instagram promotion video. Their goal was showcasing their new app update.

After meeting with the client an establishing their goals I researched video app promotions and made storyboards. Then, I created mobile app prototypes in Adobe Illustrator. I made each icon, profile picture, and screen from scratch. I used a 3D phone template, added the screens and animated the phone in Adobe After Effects. I choreographed the words and movement to music.

This video is still on Instagram bringing awareness to their app and helping expand their client base.

Lexus of Albuquerque 20th Anniversary

In April of 2019, I made promotional video for the 20th Anniversary of Lexus of Albuquerque. I worked in Adobe Premiere and edited the audio in Adobe Audition. It took about a week to create.

I started by designing a 20th anniversary logo. Then I found footage from old projects and selected clips to edit from them. I choreographed everything to a song I selected. This project was particularly exciting to me because I love editing to music and I had great footage to work with.

Facebook Banner Video for Media Matched Advertising

To make Media Matched Advertising’s Facebook pop I made a video banner. This project took me two days. I edited together footage from their commercials in Adobe After Premiere. Next, I made them grayscale. I added a sheer dark layer, that I created in Adobe Photoshop, to make the logo and tagline pop out.

The challenge was making the short clips fit the tempo. Some clips were from already edited footage so they were very short. I had so much fun working on this, however, that the two days just flew by. 

New Mexico Education

I made this video for the non-profit New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty in November of 2018. The purpose was bringing awareness to events in New Mexico Education.

This took me about three days. I combined free footage, music, and imagery in Adobe Premiere and After Effects. This was a special project for me because the issue of access to education is close to my heart. 

Storylab Social Media Animations

I created animations for Storylab Interactive’s social media. I created the Spring Promotion in Adobe Premiere and After Effects. I masked separate videos of flowers blooming and collaged them into the image fading in.

I made the Europa Immersive Dining Promotion e in Adobe After Effects. I hand drew the image of Europe and then made it a vector in Adobe Illustrator. I created the firefly effect with special effects software called Trapcode.

Personal Projects

I have found the more I personal projects I make the faster I am on big projects. So I make sure to stay sharp with plenty of personal motion design projects.
