Manchester Orchestra - "Virgin"

Photoshop After Effects

Sole VFX artist on independently made music video for "Virgin" by Manchester Orchestra (Dir. Ben Disinger).
On "Virgin" my skills were tested mentally and physically with compositing, eye replacement, 3D camera movements, manual motion tracking, animation of static images, and other surreal effects. As a result, the video has done exceptionally well garnering numerous awards and picking up airtime on MTV, MTVU, Fuse, VH1, and the like.

INTERACTIVE TIMELINE

INVISIBLE INK - APP

Photoshop After Effects

Invisible Ink allows street art to be incorporated into the virtual world, allowing anyone to create, rate and view virtual art on real world surfaces.

With the collaboration of Adam Goldman we were able to create an iPad application that leverages augmented reality, GPS location, and Cloud technology, to give users the opportunity to create virtual art anywhere.

THE WORLD MADE DRINKABLE - LIFESAVER

Photoshop

Poster re-design for Lifesaver portable water bottle. The objective was to take a literal object and abstract it but still retain the meaning.

Lifesaver is a portable water bottle that purifies dirty water and makes it clean. It was created to remove bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi and all other microbiological waterborne pathogens. When the filter expires the bottle automatically prevents you from being able to drink the non-filtered water.

ROBERT MONDAVI - RE-BRAND

Photoshop After Effects

The goal was to re-build the Robert Mondavi brand from the ground up. Taste cards, microsites, websites, presentations, logos, designs and three seperate wine bottles.

I chose DeVine Vineyards as the new brand name because it represents an organic, clean, clever and abstract name.
