I love creating videos that showcase manufacturing. Visually speaking, the movement of machines creates an elegant ballet that looks great on film. Ripon Athletic, an American apparel manufacturer in Berlin, Wisconsin hired myself, Akin Girav and Adam L. McMath to produce a 40 plus minute documentary covering the history of the nearly 100 year-old company and each step of the production process.
I directed this music video for singer Caleb Minter. The Atlanta pop and R&B artist came to Chicago and we shot the video on location and in my south loop Chicago studio.
Promotional video: Earlier this month, I worked with Terry’s Toffee to create a promotional video for their business showcasing their award-winning handcrafted confections. I love helping companies and other creative people tell their stories, especially when my clients are so passionate about their products and services.
The AIDS Foundation of Chicago recently hired me to shoot a full length video of this live event last month on National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
If you haven’t already seen them, this video and print fundraising ad campaign is now appearing online, in print and on buses all over Chicago. Shooting an integrated marketing campaign with both videos and stills for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago gave me a great opportunity to create effective visuals that I hope will allow this charity organization to exceed their fundraising goals! It was also been another opportunity for me to work with talented graphic designer Dan Paterno.
