General Rule of Thumb

I’ve made this post before, and I’ll probably make it again. During those times in which I go silent on the blog for more than 7 days at a time, it’s because I’m taking the time to work on new client projects vs. taking the time to create blog content. […]

Labor Day, 2017

Once a year my club has a big shindig get-together at one location or another. This year we met up in Winnemuca, NV. For those who aren’t familiar with this town (I wasn’t), it’s a smallish kinda middle-of-nowhere town in Northern Nevada. It was named after Chief Winnemucca of the […]

I completed the tutorial in record time but some of the camera movements look robotic. […]

General Rule of Thumb

Just a reminder, I’m still most definitely here and still doing animations like the one above, although most of my time these days is spent working on new website projects. (It’s a good problem.) Am also working on a couple of demo video projects for Youtube. Always looking for more work […]

Weekend Project

This animation uses a client’s logo, but the work wasn’t contracted. It’s just my weekend project and part of the process of getting to know the latest version of After Effects.  And then the thought struck me — hey, I have a LOT of client logos that I could animate!!! […]
