WRECK TREK

EDITOR / CAMERA MAN

Driving 10,000 miles. From Berlin, Germany to Capetown, South Africa - in the cheapest cars we could find.

That was the premise of the show.

Initially, I joined the production to log footage and edit web content on the road, but halfway through the trip, I ended up taking on the role of camera man as well. This worked out well when it came to putting the show together. As camera man, I was able to conduct interviews according to the needs of the story, and capture B-roll that would come in handy later on. I edited the pilot and the last 5 episodes of the series once it was picked up by Travel Channel UK. The show ran in over 120 countries, and later went to Netflix & Amazon Prime.


 

THE DENIRO GUY

EDITOR / VFX ARTIST

When I received the footage for this short commercial, it was just a simple clip of Robert standing in front of a green screen. Originally, the theme was "cheesy lawyer commercial"- with bookshelves in the background and tacky transitions. However, after seeing what I had to work with, I thought it might be fun to go even further...

Luckily, I was given free rein to add whatever crazy ideas popped in to my head. The result is what you see now.


 

CORY LIVE

EDITOR / GRAPHICS DESIGNER

By using stock footage of nightclubs and remixing a royalty-free song, I was able to create this high-energy sizzle reel for DJ Cory Almeida. The goal was to convey the sense of excitement his live performances have.

I wrote the script for the text graphics, and then created them in Adobe After Effects. The last step was to finalize the video with color correction and the audio mix.

From start to finish, the process was a great creative collaboration between myself and the producer.


 

FILM RATING GUIDE

EDITOR / GRAPHICS DESIGNER

With a video like this, the approach is pretty straightforward: Create graphic elements in Adobe Photoshop, animate those elements in Adobe After Effects, and cut together the finished clips using Adobe Premiere. While this process can potentially take longer, it saves the client money because they don't have to hire a team of people. And best of all, it gives the client a more direct line of communication with myself, so changes can be made quickly and efficiently.


 

 

WRECK TREK: THE ORIGINAL WEBISODES

EDITOR / CAMERA MAN

During the production of what was then called "World Cup Trek" I was responsible for shooting and editing content on the road, with the intention of using the footage to sell the show to distributors. What you see here is a complete collection of the short online videos that were shown to Travel Channel, which ultimately convinced them to buy it.


 

WILD RIDE: CHANG PROMO

CAMERA MAN

Although I was only a camera man on this show, I'm featuring this video to show the type of on-the-fly shooting I'm familiar with.

It's projects like these where you have to be ready to capture anything at a moment's notice. I also conducted ad hoc interviews with cast members and logged footage along the way. Over the course of one month, we shot more than 100 hours of content, across 3 different countries. Conditions were sometimes harsh, but this is where I really thrive as a videographer.

Shortly after production wrapped, the show was picked up for distribution by MTV Canada, and later aired in Australia as well.
