Sourced, edited and mixed this acting and music video reel for actor-musician Seth Whittaker. It looks simple, but the timing on this took ages, flowing between vocal and instrumental versions of the track and timing verses with edits.
Seth’s star keeps rising; he and his brother Daniel (as hip-hop duo Wn8O) have recently opened for such greats as Fetty Wap, Nelly, Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Rich Homie Quan and and Tech N9ne.
Could this video have anything to do with their meteoric success? Well. I guess it doesn't hurt!
I was recently contracted to fully produce a demo reel for one Seth Whittaker, a talented young actor and performer in Vancouver. This project consisted of sourcing and converting source clips, creating intertitles, and seamlessly editing the footage (both video and audio) to subtly boost the actor’s profile within the scene. Music of the performer’s own creation was added to the audio mix, at his request. I think this came out well!
Trailers for 2.5D animations I did for 4Cats in 2014. Each animation was about 5 minutes long, and the trailers are cut down from that. 4Cats asked for mostly parallax effects and minimalist animation based on illustrations from existing storybooks. Story art by Carol Chu, all the rest by me.
Artists featured: Grandma Moses, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Beatrix Potter, Faith Ringgold, Salvador Dali, Jasper Johns
4Cats, an occasional employer of mine, recently made public one of the videos I edited for them. The video, which I cut together from footage shot by others, was structured as both an advertisement for an art kit and a music video for Shane Hooper, a Salt Spring Island musician. Nice song, fun little project. Enjoy!
