Motion Graphics & Animation

I’ve been a full time professional user of Adobe After Effects since 1999.

In 2019 I was hired by University of Nebraska Foundation to produce both :60 and :30 animations celebrating UNL’s 150th Anniversary. These were posted on social media to build excitement and awareness for UNL’s inaugural inaugural 24 hour Day Of Giving fundraising.  (Footage in these is courtesy of University of Nebraska Communications).

I produced and did motion graphics in After Effects for this animated typography spot for CLAAS Harvesters 100 Year Anniversary.

My friend Nick Maestas did a successful fundraiser to launch his food truck brand Muchachos. I produced, edited, did motion graphics, and shot this in 4K on my iPhone 7 Plus.

I edited audio, did motion graphics editing, and produced this animation in Adobe After Effects using art from the awesomely talented Jim Mehsling. This won a bronze Telly in 2016.

In 2016, Rhett did 360 degree video research, pitched the idea, produced, assisted on the shoot, (Nathan Rogers shot, stitched the 6 GoPros). I edited this screencap 360 degree video overview as part of a series to showcase the 66th and O Street location remodel. I directed all 4 video scenarios while hiding behind stacks of Russ’s Market products.

With vector art provided by the fabulous Amy Weichert at Snitily Carr, I animated this :30 spot for Lower Platte South Natural Resources District.

Two eight hour shoot days went into making this Tobacco Free Nebraska origami campaign. Stop motion After Effects animation by Rhett, hand crafted dollar bill origami art by Linda Stephens.
