2015 Denver Silent Film Festival
PROJECT OVERVIEW: For the 2015 Denver Silent Film Festival, I discussed and filmed the director and co-founder of the festival, Howie Movshovitz. I wanted to highlight individual films, discuss the entire festival and some of its unique aspects, and introduce a modern element to films created 100 years ago. In doing so, I attempted to introduce the festival and its films to a new generation. One important detail was music selection; it was important to match the mood of the film to a contemporary song choice. By approaching the festival director with my ideas, we were able to create the video series and attract new festival-goers.

THE GIRL WITH A PREFABRICATED HEART
This video shows some early experimenting with animation. When I first heard the song, I knew there was opportunity to help deliver the narrative.

FEATURES: Handpainted elements, animation, matching movement to musical cues
ROMANTIX :30 VALENTINES DAY SPOT
PROJECT OVERVIEW: I was tasked with the challenge of creating a spot that would be both appropriate for regular television programming and still offer a cheeky approach to Valentine's Day without being too aggressive. I presented my concept in a series of story boards and once the storyline was approved, I began sketching. Finally, I animated the images and added original music.
