Intel Xeon Processors

INTEL XEON PROCESSORS

With Liquid, I created this animated piece, showing the capabilities of Intel Xeon processors. Traditionally, high tech sales websites contain dry lists of specs and performance charts. So I experimented in a different route, and gave the site the feel of a pop-up book. Pages would curl over, and information would flip up.

To add to the feeling, we brought in comic book artist, Val Mayerik (co-creator of Howard the Duck) to illustrate the pages. The client later hesitated on the illustrations, and asked us to replace it all with stock photography. This was a moment of decision we all face in client feedback. I started making the switch, until my heart wouldn’t let me go on (it’s a pop-up book for god’s sake). So I pushed back on the team and client. In doing so, everyone agreed, and the piece was genuinely more fun because of that.

MAKE A GIANT IMPACT WITH A BOX OF STICKS START BY TAKING THE PRODUCT VERY SERIOUSLY LAUGH A LITTLE AND FIND OPPORTUNITIES Every now and then I have to remember to do something stupid. Yet, I keep it professional. So when Fort Ripper asked me to film an ad for Campfire Cologne, (literally a box of sticks),

IMPROVISE AND FIND YOUR RHYTHM In university, I took a jazz-appreciation class where I learned how to find order in what sounds like chaos. When the tune goes past the melody, open your mind to move and listen to every single note. You’ll find yourself tapping your toe to jazz. The same principle can be

“Winter Gardens”

Winter Gardens (2014) I always find it more interesting to travel in times far from the peak of tourist season. In these times, scenes ask to be photographed in a completely different manner from they are seen in summer. In the winter, gardens are abandoned by all but the most devout of caretakers. In these

PRACTICE RESURRECTION Years ago, some friends of mine and their band "Metal" had put out album of ambient music tracks. I was inspired by the sounds they produced, and so I started working on an idea for a video piece that could be projected behind their live performances. I made a simple animation of a tree,

“Joseph’s Dream”

The Film   This short film, which I wrote, filmed, and edited, started as a sort of Christmas story. Being a personal project, it didn’t “have to be made.” Even up to the final hours of postproduction, I had doubts of whether it would be any good — but I kept the course. What the
