Viagra Ad spot - This is an ad spot I made for the drug Viagra.  I used stop-motion photography to create this.  I drew the images from over 400 still photographs I took of the miniature set.

Final video - Stop-motion tutorial

I am in the process of making the last video for the class.  I decided that I am going to experiment with stop-motion photography.  I’ll see how it turns out.

This is an article I found that explains the basics behind stop-motion that I read up on.

Poster project for C609.  This is a promotional poster I made for a fictional retro gaming convention.

The scene was inspired by the “Dogs Playing Poker” series of paintings from the early 1900’s.  I replaced the dogs with various classic video game sprites.

PSA Video - Ronald McDonald House Charities Wichita

This is a 30-second public service announcement I made for the Ronald McDonald House Charities Wichita.  Enjoy!

**A special thank you to Jennifer Nolte, Communication Director of RMHC Wichita, for working with me on this PSA**

Second video - Dr. Pepper/Space Invaders ad spot

This is a fake video ad spot I created for Dr. Pepper.  It was inspired by a similar scene from the sci-fi sitcom “Futurama.”  Enjoy!

First video - WAFFLES!

This is the first video I made for the 609 class.  Enjoy!

Poster idea

Just came up with the idea for the promotional poster for class.

It is inspired by the classic “Dogs Playing Poker” painting series from the early 1900’s.  My version will involve several classic video game sprites playing poker, to advertise an upcoming retro gaming convention.

I’ll see what I can do.

PSA created and posted

I created a public service announcement for the Ronald McDonald House Charities Wichita for another class, but I figured I’d post it for this class’s PSA assignment as well.
