I recently was tasked with creating a video showing off a new product for one of my clients at Onyx. The product is a device called the Forge. This is essentially a “sizzle reel” for the device showing it in action and accompanied by motion graphics to support the list of features. The video will be used in social media, email blasts, and at trade show displays.
The style of the graphics was set up by the Onyx creative team. This video used elements from a previous video produced by Onyx’s former digital media producer. My role in this was to update existing motion graphics to focus solely on the new device, shoot and edit in new material of the device in action, create new motion graphics highlighting certain features (such as the echolocation and clinometer) and choose and sync new stock music.
I recently did some minor updates to a Children’s Campaign video that I produced in 2008. It’s not much different. It’s actually shorter and has some minor edits like swapping out photos.
They’re taking this video on a “Truth Tour” and there will be a stop in Tallahassee on October 6. I am making plans to attend that event. For more information, visit the Children’s Campaign website.
Two and a half years ago, in my second video for Meridian Woods, I had an opportunity to do some sci-fi. Being one of my favorite genres, I wanted to return to it once more before wrapping up my tenure. I wrote this script pulling bits from Star Trek (using a metaphor to explain technobabble), Back to the Future (drawing on a chalkboard), Doctor Who (music) and numerous other sci-fi sources.
There’s a running gag at church that’s been labeled Meridian Woods Time. That concept is explained in the video. It’s something that a lot of people joke about and I felt it played in perfectly to my desire to revisit this genre.
I’ve made a couple of references to it recently and now I can finally (officially) show off what has consumed most of my time the past few weeks.
I had the opportunity to put together this almost nine minute video for the Children’s Campaign. This video will serve as a tool to inform people in Florida about the need for better funding for children. The video is intended to be viewed on the web and will also serve as a video presentation for the Children’s Campaign Truth Tour 2008. This tour began Thursday, September 18 in Miami where the video will made its full-fledged debut.
I threw this together tonight. Not yet sure if the Fall 2008 date actually means anything for sure yet…
Bill Wiist drew the pictures and I took the elements and added a little motion. Still experimenting with this concept some.
