Well, where do I start?... My passion in life is art and drawing what I see whether its in my minds eye or in our world. I graduated From Columbia College in 2007 with my Bachelors in Fine Arts, with emphasis in Painting/Drawing. Drawing is not only a goal in my career prospects but a major part of my life in general, I draw what I feel, what I see, and what I know. Below is a Watercolor sample of my Grandparents done in 2008 for their 65th wedding anniversary.
My goal has always been to draw what my imagination creates and tell a story using this media, I have a very focused narrative style that I imagined would lead me into comic books, or cartoons, so it has been a natural progression being introduced to storyboards.
With my love of film it was a natural step for me, to combine my knowledge of film-making and love of drawing. What I really love about drawing storyboards is the creative process, and how much of that the artist is a part of the creation of films that use story boards. I am able to communicate ideas as clearly using my drawings and graphics alone. However my ability to narrate each pictures clear meaning is also a must in some cases, for example; I use storyboards to develop each frame beforehand on every project. These storyboards allow me not only to formulate the ideas I need and corrections I may need to make, but also, Whether or not they are necessary to the information pertained.
As well as drawing storyboards or creating art of my own, I am also a independent film-maker and freelance videographer. As an indipendant videographer I produce the highest quality video and photographic for a number of clients. I am constantly adjusting and perfecting the projects in order to please each client to their specific requirements. I am able to tailor to each step of the production process in order to keep solid control over each project I have a part in.
Every job I perform is tailored very specifically to each clients needs and the needs of any third party producer I may happen to work for, and they are all always impressed with the results. Working on numerous short films, Network TV, and feature length Indy films, I also have a very stable and self built knowledge of, not only how to shoot, but how to make a film happen from beginning to end every step of the way (I learned the hard way by making the mistakes myself and learning from them).
I design, develop, and produce graphic design and material (drawings, graphics, photographs, layouts) for publication or presentation purposes. Using medium and techniques consistent with desired effect and reproduction. I have used all types of desktop publishing or web design software, multimedia software, or traditional methods(photography, illustration) to prepare materials for publication or printing, as well as, coordinated the final material with clients for production and delivery. I am able to develop and design artwork for covers, web pages and sites, manuals, brochures, pamphlets, advertisements, marketing campaigns, compact discs, and presentation materials.
