IDK PARTY 10/20/23 RECAP VIDEO

Intended for mature audiences
Serving as an event recap as well as promotional material for the next event, I shot footage on location, edited and colour-graded in Adobe Premiere Pro, and added a bloom effect in Adobe After Effects.

SCRAPBOOK EVENT MOTION GRAPHICS LOOP

This loop was displayed live during a club event. I used Adobe Photoshop to stylize and prepare my assets and then put everything together in After Effects. I made heavy use of the Wiggle expression and Posterize Time to maintain a scrapbook-like animation style akin to that of the marketing material for the event.

EVENT MOTION GRAPHICS LOOP

LOW-POLY TOFU DRIFT

I used Cinema 4D to create and animate low-poly models of the Toyota AE86 as well as a Japanese tofu shop. I added motion blur in Adobe After Effects and then added colour grading and sound effects in Premiere Pro.

ISOMETRIC LETTER OF THE FUTURE

In Cinema 4D, I used the letter "Z" as a basis to construct and animate a futuristic building along with its environment. I pulled inspiration from eco-brutalist architecture. Motion blur was added in After Effects and sound effects were added in Premiere Pro.

THE BODY SHOP - LOGO ANIMATION

Using Adobe Illustrator to construct the elements, and After Effects to animate, I created this logo animation for The Body Shop, strictly adhering to their brand guidelines. It is meant to be used at the end of a video as an outro.

TIKTOK USERS - EXPLAINER VIDEO

Using Cinema 4D, Adobe Illustrator, and After Effects, I created an explainer video that reports on the count of TikTok's massive user base. This animation blends the use of 3D animation with 2D animation.

About me!

Hey! I'm a graduate of Red River College Polytech’s Digital Media Design - Video/Motion Graphics Program.Growing up in the early days of YouTube inspired me to get out and create with what was available to me. As the years went on, I grew to love the feeling of creating meaningful content, and the euphoria of executing my vision as I saw it in my mind.As I continue in my career, I hope to use my skills in editing, colour grading, VFX compositing, and motion design to bring this same inspiration to others in any capacity.I love the ability that media has to change and inspire us. When I'm not creating, you can find me enjoying the creations of others, whether that's endlessly scrolling through TikTok, cracking down on my Letterboxd watchlist, or discovering new music while on a walk!
