Articulate with Jim Cotter Season 5 Sizzle Reel

I pitched, designed, animated, and edited this 30 second sizzle for season 5 of “Articulate with Jim Cotter.”

Wharton More Than Ever Campaign Anthem Video

This video was created with the Wharton Development team for a large fundraising campaign. I primarily worked with them from pre to post-production on the concept, editing, and animation.

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.

Motion Design Reel

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

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.

“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.

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.”

Double Bassist Joseph Conyers Profile

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.

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.

Wharton Interactive Trailer

This is a trailer for interactive courses created and run by Wharton Interactive. The client was very open to ideas but wanted it to appeal to an international audience. There were also very few available assets from the actual game since they were still early in development. I created high resolution pdfs of the game pages and in-game videos to recreate the pages in 3D in After Effects and make them more dynamic and immersive for the trailer.

Wharton People Analytics Conference Video

For this project, I was given the media, interviews, and some visual reference for what they wanted the graphics package to look like. I designed and animated the graphics and constructed the story from the interviews after discussing the key talking points they wanted to hit.
