The Million Reasons - Dizzy Music Video

The Million Reasons is a true rock band from Chicago. I directed, shot, and edited this music video for them in the Spring of 2018. 

 

C2E2

While working at the Des Plaines Public Library, I was sent to C2E2 (Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo) to capture my experience for a post on the library's blog. The blog highlights books in the library that patron's can reference to help them create their own cosplays, which is a big part of convention culture, and a focus in the video! 

 

THE JADES

The Jades are an bluesy folk duo made up of Katie Krenning and Kathleen Lieffers. I created this video with them as a means of promotion to give their audience a sense of who they are and an introduction to what they sound like, while also promoting a couple shows they have coming up for this Summer.

 

3MA STUDIOS

3 Monkeys and Aardvark Studios is as quirky as it sounds. Located in Schaumburg, Illinois, this small design agency shakes up the suburbs in a big way.


 

TITLE CARD

In an effort to help my old band's social media presence, I created a title card to play before any YouTube videos we would have created. The title card directed the viewer to our music, as well as our other Social profiles to optimize the number of followers we could engage with.

 

THERMOSAFE WEB BANNER

Thermosafe is a leader in Temperature Controlled Packaging. Using Adobe After Effects, I created an animated web banner for them to give their audience a glance at their process. The icons for each step of their process were provided to me, and it was my job to find an interesting way to bring each one to life through animation.


ANIMATED WEB AD

Thermosafe commissioned another animated gif to serve as an ad for their website and an e-mail footer. This particular ad shows off the different transport products that they offer in a sleek template style, where color is used to emphasize the difference in products, and a traveling line not only directs the viewer's eyes to read the message, but prevents the piece from becoming static and visually uninteresting.
