Below are the descriptions of and the download links for a sampling of my video works. There are both content/narrative-based pieces and then, listed below those, motion graphics-based pieces showing that other side of my experience. For each sample, the direct download is much better visual quality than the web page Flash version generated by divShare, my online file service … but, of course, those are more immediate viewing and do not require any disk space. Please take a look and then download any you wish to take a more quality look at.

A surprise attack by the 9-foot bear, intent on having one of the hunting party’s horses for dinner, left no choice but to shoot to kill before the camera was even turned on! Only allowed one bear kill per expedition, I was given the footage and had to “fix it in post!” I concocted the confrontation out of post-mortem shaky cam re-enactments and stock footage. See if you think I made it work … or not! All graphics, packaging, and animations are mine as well, for this show and for the series. The “Quest for the One” series open has a link below in “Show Opens, Animations, & Motion Grfx Composites”.

At the ICA celebration, GBH Prez Henry Becton, Jr. asked “Who did that editing!” … c'est moi! It’s a nifty and upbeat mini-review of the wide range of the creative arts BGA had presented during those first five years. In a GBH edit room, holed up alone for a weekend with a several boxes of tapes and a Monday morning deadline, I essentially was the producer/director/designer as well as the editor.
