Feature Segment for Author Vikram Paralkar

This is a feature length segment I worked on with a writer and two videographers. I worked with the writer in pre-production to plan the look and content of the b-roll shoots with Vikram. I also designed and animated the motion graphics used during his books excerpts. I used inspiration from the art direction of his book covers as a starting point for the designs. His books are a mix of science and fantasy with dark themes, and we wanted to reflect that in the visuals of the piece. Motion graphic portions are at 1:13 and 7:26.

Feature Segment for Poet Joan Kane

Joan Naviyuk Kane writes to reconcile the experiences of her Iñupiaq community with the narratives of a society that would define them from outside. To visualize her poems and reflections, I used archival photos and stock footage that capture Alaska’s stunning yet hauntingly solitary landscapes.

Feature Segment for Double Bassist Joseph Conyers

This is a full episode profile I edited for Joseph Conyers, which was nominated for a 2022 Daytime Emmy for best multicam editing. My focus was to not only display his technical mastery but let the emotion and content of his performance determine my decisions on the pacing and camera selection of the edit.

Feature Segment for Architect Balkrishna Doshi

We had limited time to shoot with Mr. Doshi, and with a lot of the story taking place in India it was necessary to use archive footage and stock footage for many of the locations. I also used design elements taken from blueprints to create maps and transitions.

Feature Segment for Dancer and Choreographer Camille Brown

For this segment, I utilized music and choreography from both original and archival footage to guide my editing decisions. In sections featuring social dance and performance, I maintained a quicker pace, ensuring edits were synchronized with the beats. Conversely, for the segments reflecting on personal philosophies, I slowed the pace and footage to align with the tone of introspection.

Classical Music Performances with The Philadelphia Orchestra

I edited this collaboration with Steve Martin and The Philadelphia Orchestra as part of a full program that debuted their 2020 season. The orchestra footage was a 20 cam multicamera set-up with Steve Martin synced with a click track.

“…what was wonderful about the production by a collaborative team (Jim Cotter was executive producer) is that it conveyed that live feeling, but with a lot of extras that you don’t get live in the concert hall. Shots of players were smartly chosen, often moving apace with the music. In the most positive sense, the online medium falls away and you really can focus on the music.”

“The Saturn Parable” Trailer

I combined narrative elements from different scenes to create this trailer from the motion graphics and 3D shots I designed and animated for Wharton Interactive’s “The Saturn Parable” game.

Wharton Global Forum Singapore 2023

I edited, animated, and contributed to the design and art direction on this project for the Wharton Global Forum in Singapore. I collaborated with a writer, producer, and graphic designer from the Wharton team to develop the concept and execute the video. The main challenge was keeping the design and video fresh within their brand standards, while having limited new footage from the past three years.

Wharton Interactive AI Series

For this series, I collaborated with Wharton Interactive to develop the visuals and format for five videos that explain how AI can assist teachers and students in education. I created a graphics package, developed the art direction for the series, and edited three of the five videos. An animated section at 3:52 helps visualize how AI functions.

Motion Design Reel

This is work I designed and animated using primarily After Effects, Cinema 4D, X-particles, and Marvelous Designer.
