Teekay Shipping, where I am currently on my internship at, is looking for a new intern for the fall, and thus we set out to showcase why working at Teekay is a unique opportunity. Brainstorming was the bigger chunk of this project, as filming was straightforward once we knew we wanted fast, simple edits.
Today heading home from a very productive day at work, I started to doze off. It ended in me gently resting my flopping head onto a stranger’s right shoulder who was standing in front of me on the SkyTrain ride. I don’t know when he got off the SkyTrain, but it was before I got off at my stop.
SFU’s Ultimate club, which I was a part of this past semester (Spring 2014) was seeking a logo to use for their team jersey, and so I mocked up an initial design, not too dissimilar to the final one. Changes to be noted: disc was more of a donut in original iteration, and the mountaintop was closer to top of the type.
I like to keep things quick. No backdrop, just a flash on a camera, mounted on a tripod. Bounce bounce bounce (just once, though) the light; I love playing with light. This is practice. And I enjoy practicing.
This was the final edit for a class project me and 3 others tackled for the majority of a semester. The short hilariously follows three men and their encounter with the infamous ‘Oreo Killer.’ The initial idea was similar, but after a quick sit down, this idea was what came out of it, an evolution if you will. The script was co-written by all of us, and production and shooting was a full team effort. This was shot on Canon DSLRs, and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro.
SFU’S ASA (Accounting Student Organization) had me design a booklet that would be distributed during their annual banquet. “It’s in the details” struck me, with every small change adding up to make it just a bit better. The results? The banquet attendees actually read the booklet (I’m told this is a first)! I designed this project on both Adobe Illustrator and InDesign.
As the director of web and social media for the SIAT Frosh 2013, I was given the responsibility of creating a promotional video that would attract first year students of our program to attend this two day event. Working off the existing branding of the event already, I animated this short, from start to beginning on After Effects.
I entered BCTIA’s 20th Anniversary Video Contest as part of a team that placed first. From ideation to shooting to editing, I had extensive input on helping achieve what we envisioned for the video, which was to showcase the evolution of technology in the last 20 years. This winning video was shot on my DSLR, and edited in both Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
