These are the big projects I completed over my 4 years at school that I consider to be worthy of posting here. While I wouldn't call them all successes, I think these show off my best work of school not including the small little ones like "do a video with every shot framing type."
Not featured here is my 2015 showreel, which was part personal project and part school project. I was already working on it at the time that the same project for a class came up and hit two birds with one stone.
This was a project for an independent study class that I was approved for. I designed a small curriculum and wrote an essay explaining what my goal was and how it would improve my skills. My goal was to create a series of 15 second social media advertisements for a mock travel agency in Arizona. I went out to many different locations and with the help of friends filmed 9 videos about some of the key locations in the central valley. I learned many crucial skills by doing this project and consider it the biggest (and most expensive) student project I have done.
This project was for my advanced video editing class. It was the senior project I worked on with 3 others to demonstrate our overall ability to film and produce a video.
Sun Devil Racing is the Mini Baja Racing team on the ASU polytechnic campus. Every year they build mini ATV racers from the bottom up to spec for racing in a competition against hundreds of other schools. Sun Devil Racing liked the video and ended up using it for their showcase.
One of the requirements for this class was to create a TV show intro. I decided to feature one of my friends as a exaggerated college bachelor version of himself for a hit TV show about his life in Arizona. This was submitted to the ADAA as also part of the class requirements, so I studied up on similar styled sit-coms for my own video. The song was not licensed for use in the video, but was chosen specifically to fit under the idea that a TV show like this would be able to budget it.
The final video did not make the 1 minute limit for the project and this is the cut down version to make a complete project.
I made this video to demonstrate my understanding of what types of shot framings there are and how they affect your view. This was based off of everything I had learned about video in class and outside of class.
My voiceover skills are terrible and that is one skill I definitely still need to work on.
This was the first team based video in my advanced video class. We each had to choose our own company to make and ad for, identify the target market, make a mock pitch, and then make the video. We decided to bring some nostalgia by playing "chubby bunny" with the marshmallows, and add some dark humor for the large adult population that still enjoys the product.
ASU did not reiumburse us for the marshmallows after.
I made this for a contest to show off the different ASU campuses. This was one of the first videos I made at ASU and my first video I've submitted to a contest. In hindsight, it's a terrible video and only shows off one thing on the campus. I still won second place and got $100.
This was my favorite project to come out of the Animation class. We had to design a GIF animated video to fit in a banner ad space. While very outdated project it was still a fun way to learn animation and GIF exporting.
