Becoming a motion designer has been one of the most rewarding and challenging undertakings of my life. Ever since I can remember I have had a camera in my hand and I have always been very passionate about video and animation. This program has given me the ability to take my passions and finally watch as they have flowered into a professional reality. I love constantly learning new and interesting techniques with these programs and am very excited to continue my journey into the digital realm of motion design. I have recently purchased a beautiful new Panasonic G7 mirrorless camera for all my 4k - full HD video/photography needs. In conjunction with Adobe’s full creative suite this has given me the resources I need to be a successful freelance designer and editor as well as continuing my passion for all forms of digital art.

My production team had the chance to work with UW Health to create a video promoting their Wellness Champions. With this project we learned how to work well with each other while also accommodating the clients needs. The challenge was working with a client that had many constraints on where video was allowed to be shot. My personal contributions to this project were camera operator and creative director. I also helped pick out music and leveling out the audio of the interviews.
3D model of beer bottles and their packaging created in my intro to 3D class. I designed and composted the image on the box as well as the label around the bottle. I learned a lot about 3D programs during this project, including how to properly wrap an image around a 3D object.
