I started a series of web tutorials on video production. The idea is to catalogue small but helpful things I’ve learned that make life easier on set or in the field. It’s often the little things (labeling, organization) that save you lots time and frustration. I’ll be adding more videos to this playlist in the […]

Riverview Family Dental

I recently did a 4-part commercial video series for Riverview Family Dental. Derek and the whole team were a fun bunch to work with, and I loved watching them interact with clients. When the videos go live on Riverview’s new website, I’ll embed them here  Videos available here.

SmartCamera paper published

The paper I co-authored at NDSU just got published by Multimedia Tools and Applications!
